Customer Reviews

Also, you have to be careful when mounting the main screen to the back of the headrest.

It stopped working after that one trip, never to read a disc again and we didn't let the kids play with it or leave it in the vehicle with no use for months on end.
W. Buckner
We've contacted Polaroid customer service and they say that the battery is 'not available YET' because the model is so new.

This is a horrible unit. From the beginning it did not work as you expect modern electronics to work. It had a hard time reading disks. I did not use it much but on a long trip it inexplicably stopped after 15 to 20 minutes. It stopped working altogether when it became obvious it was overheating. It seems another reviewer had just about the same problem. Only a 90 day warranty and they wanted more money to get an exchange after the 90 days was up. Buyer beware!

I had a problem with the other Polaroid product that I bought (a digital camera. The LCD went out on that)

Don't buy Polaroid!!!

We purchased this unit primarily so that our children can periodically watch DVDs in their room and in the car, but also to be able to take it out in the yard or on the deck. So far the unit seems to play DVDs nicely in the house on AC power, and the second screen works great too. The screen is viewable from different angles, so you don't have to be sitting right in front of it to see a nice picture like with some DVD players. The front-flip feature makes it easy to load and unload DVDs while it is strapped to the back of a seat. Unfortunately, our unit came without the strap slots built in to back of the main unit. These are the slots you slide the straps through to mount the DVD player to the back of a seat, so we're unable to 'test drive' the player to see how it works in the car yet. We're still trying to deal with Polaroid customer support on the issue. They have told us that we will have to send it back for an exchange. I will probably end up saving myself the time and shipping by going to the hardware store and buying 4 small metal rods to insert where they are missing. On the brighter side, the the unit will play movies with the lid flipped open or shut because the screen is on the outside of the lid instead of the inside. So you can put it on your lap and view the screen at an angle or lay it flat to watch it while looking downward. This is also convenient if you have limited shelf space because the entire player can sit vertically while closed so it only takes up about 3" of depth and 10" of width. You could also mount it to a wall or other vertical spot with velcro. On the downside, Polaroid has made a huge marketing mistake by not including or even making available a battery source even though there is a battery port on the bottom of the main unit.Read more ›

I received this item for Mother's day and it did not work - we exchanged it thinking making it was just a fluke - but the 2nd one didn't work either. It kept getting stuck on "Reading" but it never actually read the disc. Not worth it - try something different.

This product was purchased as a gift for my kids to be used on a roadtrip. It worked great - both screens - and made the night driving go so much faster! However, when we got to our destination, it was pointed out to me that it doesn't work unless it is plugged into the car or wall outlet. No problem - I thought, I'll just buy the battery when we get back home. No such battery pack exists. No wonder this unit is on sale! If you can use this item without a battery, then it worked great for us, just don't expect to take it on a flight!

We bought this last Christmas, it was on sale, to take a trip the end of march. It worked fine the whole trip. Got home put it away. Took the kids to Disney for summer break in July and could never get it to work, just said reading disc. 200 dollars down the drain unless we want to find someone to fix ..then it will be a 300 dvd player. This is our 3rd portable and I don't think anyone makes a great one, if anyone knows of one please let everyone know.
Also, to the reviewer who said "shame, shame, shame" on the reviewers that gave such horrible negative reviews since she used the product for one short (4hr I think) trip & it worked fine........The shame shouldn't fall on us negative reviewers....it should fall on Polaroid. Ours worked great right after we bought it to go on a 20 hour (round trip) road trip. It stopped working after that one trip, never to read a disc again and we didn't let the kids play with it or leave it in the vehicle with no use for months on end. I mean right after that initial trip, it wouldn't read ANY discs. We purchased the warranty but even the manufacturer couldn't fix it, they simply said....there's nothing we could do to fix it and sent us a gift card to the store where we purchased it (I would have expected a check as I didn't find any others at this store that I wanted to purchase). So Shame, Shame, Shame on Polaroid not the TONS of reviewers that got only one use (if that) out of this product!

Verified Purchase
When we received this product as a Christmas gift for our 2 daughters, we thought it was going to be a great thing. When we opened the box, the product did not work. The screen on the main unit was half black and half white, and the picture on the screen rolled. The extra screen did work, but the main unit began to smoke. When we contacted Turn To Start about a refund, they did not respond until after we filed a claim with Amazon.com, then they claimed that we must not have received the first email. When they did finally contact us about the defective product, they said that they would refund us our money if we sent a receipt proving that we bought a replacement product from a retail store and they would charge us a restocking fee for returning the defective item without giving them a chance to supply a replacement first. Needless to say, it's not worth the time or the money to deal with this company. Amazon.com has so far fixed the problem for us, but I would not recommend purchasing this product or dealing with the Turn To Start company.
