Very glad I bought these! Some tips for connection,
This review is from: Philips PD9016/37 9-inch Portable LCD Dual DVD player (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
Installed in a 2011 Dodge Caravan
I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to put an above DVD player or the seats. I ultimately decided to go with the seats as it was WAY cheaper. I am glad I did.
-Install-- Install was very easy. I have yet to adjust these since I installed them 4 months ago. the only dumb thing is the AV cable they include with it..it is WAY TOO SHORT! Easily remedied though(see below)
-Clarity-- These look ok but definitely not superb. Very pixilated. I knew that when I bought it and the kids don't know any different.
-Dual players. It is SOOO nice to be able to play 2 different movies. I wouldn't have it any other way.
-We have both units on our front seats and our son in the back watches them just fine.
-Sound is sufficient and not too bothersome up front. They can get pretty loud if you need them to.
Cons- VERY MINOR CONS
-Short av cord baffles me.easy fix
-Not being able to control them up front kind of stinks but if your kids are old enough, you get used to it.
-No remote controls are a bummer. I would have paid extra to have them.
-They do kind of get in the way when your kids get into the van but they are very durable and the kids learn.
-Our two year old sometimes likes to push the buttons on the front with her feet.... A different location would have been better.
I would definitely recommend this player to anyone.
For those who do not like the short AV cord...here is what you need to get the "trip" wire fixed. I could not find a long AV cable so this was my solution. Your second screen may dim a bit more due to the length but it's not bad at all. I never did compare the two but I do know one of my screens is a bit more dim.
Total cost- Approx. $8
QTY 2 - Sony VMC20FR AV Cable
QTY 1 - Female to Female 3 RCA Connector

Sorry, my wife gets the replies. This response is way too late but they do not have remotes. Also they finally stopped working after about a year of use. Hard to blame the product though as my 3 year old would put in the DVD's most of the time :)
