I paid good money for these thinking the quality would be better. Boy was I wrong! I purchased app 6 mos ago. I took them out of the car for an extended work trip so it wasn't even used for 2 months or more out of the 6. It was used only when my grandchildren were in the car which was seldom use. Now the thing will not load any DVDs it just says it's loading and makes squeaking sounds, then says there is no disc. I am so totally dissatisfied with this barely used product that I wasted over 100 bucks on. Now I have to purchase a new one because I misplaced the receipt. But I won't be getting this one!
I chose this brand because it tends to be higher quality but that was not the case with this set. The door warped and started rubbing the DVD until it would stop and say NO DISC. It had nice picture quality when it worked but it had low sound quality. The only good thing I have to say.....I bought Walmart's replacement plan for $7. When it broke, I called Walmart, 10 seconds later I had a return label in my email. 24 hours after I dropped the broken unit off at UPS I had a full refund. Yea for the replacement plan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We bought this for a long trip since we no longer have a built in DVD player. They could hardly hear it and it didn't keep our 4 year olds twins occupied, which made for a very long 10 hours. I wish I had took the time to read the reviews before buying it!
I purchased this set just yesterday because my 7" Phillips set quit on me after barely a year of use. It seems to work okay but the DVD starts back over AT THE BEGINNING PREVIEWS every time the car is turned off. I'm sure this would be okay for a long trip but I do more driving around town and HATE having to skip thru previews every time I turn the car back on. After reading reviews on other websites I see that this product doesn't look to be much better than the Phillips set I'm having to replace. I'll be returning this ASAP while I still can...
I am so surprised by the reviews of this RCA dual dvd player. I have had mine for almost 3 years and it works great. I bought it when my granddaughter was about 2 and her Mom was pregnant so I knew I would need the two screens. I have not had one problem. It's a blessing on long trips in the car. I don't let the girls play with it. I put the dvds in and I use the remote to control it. The youngest one started kicking the screen on her side so I removed it for a while. Then the older one told me she thought her sister had learned not to kick it so I put it back in. So far so good. I am buying them another one for their father's car for Christmas.
I received this for a birthday gift and after barely a year it no longer loads the CD's as the previous reviewer indicated. It just reads loading and the screen goes blank. Very frustrating because it only had been used on 3 trips.
Purchase the RCA DVD player for our kids vacation so they could have something to watch during a 12hr ride, It played only 3 movies before it quit, needless to say it was a long trip for them. The sound level was also low.
purchased this DVD a few months ago. It was used less than 10 hours total, It has stopped working. The warranty will cover repair if I want to pay to ship it back to manufacture. I WILL NOT BUY AN RCA DVD PLAYER EVER AGAIN.
This dvd player was bought for my daughter when she was 6 months old for a long road trip. Once she was older (10 & 11 months) we started using it in the car daily. She is now 11 months and it one day started skipping and now it will not read ANY DVD. I am so disappointed. I now have to start shopping for a new one.
My husband bought this for our son last year in Feb for our road trip home. It worked perfectly fine playing DVD+. I think after playing them so long it finally gave out on us this Jan. Plus I doubt my son kicking it helped at all. Investing in another player today.
I bought this DVD player in May (6 months ago) for a long car trip and played about 4 movies, worked ok then. We have just used it for the second time taking another car trip this week and played 2 movies. The second screen began displaying lines during the first movie and not working properly, and then suddenly during the second movie the DVD stopped and main DVD player power just stopped working (the charger cord is working so it is something internal within the unit). Do not waste your money, or time on this DVD player! Any suggestions on a more durable player?
Bought this set for a 2 year old to keep him occupied on long trips. Well...It looks great, the sound is great, and unlike other reviews ours does start back where it stopped when you turn the car back on. But... only when it decides to work!!! We bought our first set in May for a 14 hour trip. It worked perfectly for the week long trip. A few days later...NOTHING, would not turn on, no power at all, so I took it back & exchanged for another one, because I thought maybe it was just this set. UGH The new one does the same thing, it works when it feels like it! So irritating, waited too long to return the second one so I'm stuck with an overpriced piece. It is a great set if it would work consistently. My advice DO NOT BUY THIS!
My review is similar to a previous review. After about 8 mos of use, it takes a while to load the disc, then says "no disc". Ours had pretty heavy use as it was bought for the kids, but really? Less than a year? Really frustrated with this product. Luckily, it was a gift from my dad and he bought the protection plan. SO WORTH THE $9!!! Really, I wouldn't buy another without it! They are completely replacing it! Thanks to Walmart, NO THANKS TO RCA!
We used this product for a couple years 2-3 times a year. It worked well for a year and a half then we began having problems. The movies would not load and upon further inspection all the disks were scratched. I keep my movies in the car and ONLY used them with this DVD, they all have circular scratches from the DVD. Finally the player failed in the middle of a long road trip with 4 year old twins, it was terrible!
Was a gift for my one year old after a couple uses wouldn't load any discs I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone waste of money
After 1 month of use the volume in the second player stopped working!
I don't understand why this product has such horrible reviews. I had the first set for 6 months but my son kicked it during a tantrum in the car so I got a new set which I've had 7 months now. Never had any issues... in fact the first set still worked but the movies would skip so it wasn't COMPLETELY broken from a two year old throwing a fit. Now that he's a bit older he cries because I'm done driving and the dvd player is off. My 7 yr old is completely quiet while a movie is playing in the car as well and we've taken 12 hour trips so it's definitely a GREAT product. My best friends daughter will be receiving this for her birthday next month!
We currently purchased this model. Because the one we wanted was not available at the time. Was skeptic because of reading the reviews. we used it for a road trip to myrtle beach with the kids. Dvd system worked great. the sound was very clear. The speaker is on the back of the system. but with a newer car and the angled head rests in it. there was no problem. assembles in mins. and was enjoyed for the whole trip. the only problem with the dvd system is if you have a dvd with scratches it will take time to read. with unscratched dvds no problems. I did buy the extended warrant just in case of problems and that is good for 2 yrs past manufactors warrenty and it was only $8. would recommend to anyone interested. As I said on Heading Not as Bad as people say
My four year year old uses these in our vehicle. We've had no complaints about it except this: we cannot seem to locate an in-home power source. We'd intended to allow him to take these inside hotel rooms... but there is no power supply. I even went to the RCA website and was told these weren't designed for in-home use. I really wish that was an option; if it had been, I would have given this item 5 stars.
These were so easy to install in my car, and they work very well for the price. The only drawback is that the DVD starts over from the beginning whenever the car is turned off. With the remote, my older children can get to the scene selection from the menu and find the spot where they left off, but it is kind of a pain. Really, we only use it long trips so it's not like it starts and stops all day long. Also, another reviewer mentioned that it was hard to hear. I have headphones for my kids with a splitter so we can have 3 pairs hooked up, and I can hear the DVD through their headphones when they are wearing them, so I know it is plenty loud. However, I haven't tried it without the headphones to see what the sound is like. I think I am going to invest in some noise-cancelling headphones because I like to listen to my music or audio books, which they can hear with the cheapy headphones on. That should fix the background noise problem.
I did buy Walmart's $9, 2 year replacement plan which does cover accidental damage as well as defects.
