We are pretty pleased with this item. It's got a pretty cool pattern on the back of the screen. The rotating screen is nice, and the remote works well as long as your pointing it in the right direction. The resolution is a little bad, it's nowhere near the quality of an ipad, but it's good enough to enjoy a movie. The volume seems to vary depending on the movie...some movies seem to be able to have loud volume, others not so much, but this was intended to be viewed at a close distance, so the volume shouldn't need to be terribly loud...if in doubt there is a headphone jack, I'm sure headphones would solve the problem.
We did have a little trouble playing a variety of video files...we seem to have the best luck with Divx and VOB...it seemed hit or miss with every other file type. (It play's commercial dvd's no problem, it's the files we had on a thumb drive that we had to convert to another file type to get it to play).
We were also pleasantly surprised that the player came with the power cord for the car, as well as the wall, and the cords necessary to hook it up to a tv...and a jacket/cover to attach it to the back of a headrest in a car (with little cut outs for the speakers.
I think this was a good buy. My intention was to use it as a dvd player at the gym with workout videos, and this will be perfect.
One last note - I was shocked how small the player is...the screen is 7 inches diagonal (6x3.5inches) the whole player is 8x6.25 inches. Just making a note.
