Operation: Unit is very high quality and the picture is excellent.
Peter J. Kim
The kids can easily operate it and the wireless headphones are great so the front passengers are not forced to listen to the movie playing.
P. Goins
I'm happy to say the DVD player and all four headphones still work fantastically, 4.5 years after the purchase.

We bought the Alpine PKG-RSE2 DVD player for our 1997 Chevy Astro AWD, specifically for a family road trip from Wisconsin to Florida in February 2009.

Before buying the player we did a lot of research online and in stores. At one point we actually purchased a different model (not from Alpine) at a local store. I'd commented to the salesperson while we were purchasing it that I was concerned the screen was too small and the picture wasn't incredibly good (but the price was about $100 less than the Alpine). His actual response: "Well, what do you expect? It's not an Alpine." Ugh.

That night, after purchasing the lesser model I kept thinking over what the salesguy said. In the morning I decided it was ridiculous to get such a low-end model just to save a relatively small amount of money. We returned the DVD player that day, and bought a new Alpine online from one of the sellers through Amazon. The seller we bought it from was selling it new for $499 (January 09). I see the price from current sellers has shot up again (June 09) but I suspect if you shop around/wait a bit you can find a similar price.

INSTALLATION
The instructions that come with the player aren't very clear which made installation fairly frustrating. My husband is extremely handy with cars and electronics, and it still took him about 6 hours to install the player, so keep that in mind if you're installing it yourself. It's likely you can find a local electronic store or car shop to install it for you if you don't want to tackle it on your own.

PICTURE & SOUND
Once my husband installed it he and I hopped in the back seats and put in a movie. The picture is excellent and the screen is huge. The sound - through the car speakers and/or through the wireless headphones is terrific.

Bigger screen with better resolution at half the price of the dealer installed unit. Nuff said.

Update: The unit failed almost exactly one year from my purchase. After examining it, I found that it didn't work when mounted, but did work when I had it down and in my hands. Pretty good indication of a broken solder joint. I contacted Alpine and they confirmed that was somewhat common on a batch of these units. They repaired it under warantee. Even if your unit is out of warantee, this is a super easy fix for someone who is electronically inclined, or a cheap fix for you to pay for at an electronics store. Anyway, I STILL give the unit 5-stars... I just wanted to put this out there in case anyone else had a similar problem.

This unit doe NOT have video out feature. If you are looking to use this unit as a stand-alone dvd player for the car, this unit will work. However, if you want to hook it up to other screens, this unit will NOT do it. I have been told by Alpine that they have removed this feature because of Copyright laws and they were forced to remove the feature. I was dissapointed because I paid over $500.00 for this DVD player and it doesn't even have a simple feature that a $100 dvd player has. Other than that, the unit is fine.

The Alpine PKG flip down DVD player is the best investment I have ever made. Not to mention that it was the cheapest on Amazon.com. The product has worked very well in my 2009 Chevy Tahoe. The 10 inch monitor does not obscure the rear view window as much as I thought it would. The included wireless headphones are a great addition. You can listen to your own cd's or radio up front. The unit comes with an FM modulator for this reason. You can also purchase extra sets of headphones for very reasonable prices. The LCD screen offers a very clear and sharp image. Almost blu-ray quality. My 6 y.o. son is able to quietly watch his favorite DVD's.

I would not recommend self installation unless you are very good at this type of installation. It requires drilling holes into the headliner. I took it to MobileOne Audio in Houston and had it professianlly installed for $150. I would highly recommend this name brand product. Alpine is a leader in car audio.

I got it for my 2008 4Runner, and my 4 year old has been really happy since we installed it. The video quality is very good, and audio from both the headphones and the FM transmitter works really good. The controls are pretty straightforward and the setup is simple and fast. The screen is very bright, but you can adjust that setting from the menu.

In the 4runner the display does not gets in the way to block the rearview mirror, but I imagine that it would do so in a smaller car.

I had the good fortune to have a friend that is a wizard with card install it, and would really recommend a professional installation.

The only downside that I can think of is that on this day and age, it does not support Divx discs :-(

I bought this dvd player 15 months ago and it worked great until today. Now it will not read discs and it is out of warranty and alpine will not repair this item. I paid a premium price for what I thought would be a quality product and planned for it to last the life of the vehicle. So beware of buying this product if you think its quality is superior to the cheaper brands.
