Top customer reviews
This install was easy because my 4Runner already had a DVD player in it. I only had to hook up two wires. I didn't bother connecting the A/V wires because I don't want to play the sound through the car stereo. I didn't use the installation bracket that came with the DVD player and I don't know how you would. The screws are very short and almost impossible to line up. I just screwed it into the particle board that was already there from the previous install.
It has built in speakers and you can hook up wireless headphones to it. It starts automatically if you leave it open so you're kids can resume the movie where they left off. It was half the price of all the other DVD players I looked at.
The image quality isn't much to brag about and the remote works about every 5th push of the button and only if you're aim is incredible. It takes a long time to start the DVD up.
I've only used it for a few weeks. I'll update if/when it breaks.
Reasons I chose this player:
- Very cheap, especially for a higher-resolution screen of 12"! Comparable units at BestBuy or Crutchfield are four hundred+ bucks, and most have a pretty wimpy screen resolution of 234 lines.
- Has the side-slot DVD player, instead of the pop-open clamshell that most of the others have. I felt that this would look nicer/more professional, and would probably be easier for my kids to operate.
- Has all 3 options for playback of the audio: (1) IR Wireless Headphones [headphones not included, but the same as my wife's OEM system uses], (2) Built-in Speakers, and (3) FM Modulation for playback through the car's stereo speakers. Look closely at the other listings on Amazon, and you'll note that many of them are missing one or more of these options.
Things to watch out for:
- The ratings on this product were crappy, less than 2 stars on average. So I bought it direct from Amazon, figuring I could return if it was DOA. Not sure you'll get the same support if you buy it from some of the other dealers that sell through amazon. Mine worked fine, no problems.
- Installing this was not as simple as I thought. I planned to use the Overhead Dome Light as a mount point, and to use the power line supplying the dome light to power the DVD player. Turns out, modern new cars use the car's onboard computer to dim the dome light, which regulates the circuit's current differently. When I tried hooking this up, it caused my car's other dome lights to misbehave badly, and the unit never got enough power to fully come alive.
- Based on the above install problem, I decided to run separate power for the player. Then I hit a problem when I realized that my new car's A/B/C pillars all had airbags built in. I didn't want to risk blowing an airbag, so I hired a pro installer from craigs-list-dot-com to come and do the job in my driveway for a hundred bucks. I probably saved twenty bucks in various parts and connectors that I would have used to do the job, and at least a thousand bucks in frustration trying to get the wires run right. This pro came and knocked it out in under an hour, and he had many little tricks for getting a tight fit with the roof, making it look great. I highly recommend this option over the clowns at BestBuy, as long as you can find a licensed pro who'll come to you. In my case, craigslist was full of guys offering this service on demand. Further, the pro was impressed with the solid build quality and screen size & brilliance. He'll be buying these wholesale for resale to his clients, as they're cheap, big and feature-rich.
- I was able to get this installed on a new car, before my wife & kids had seen the car. As far as they're concerned, this unit looks like it came from the factory, and blows away the wimpy factory one that we paid two thousand for, on my wife's Buick Enclave.
- It seems like the unit might fry if the car takes too much direct sunlight. There is no insulation between the unit and the roof's sheet metal (or at least, there's a hole in the roof liner where the dome light used to be), so it's possible that many overhead DVD players would melt if the car is parked out in the direct sun for a long period. It's important to note that the actual electronic guts of this unit are in the base attached to the roof, not in the flip-down screen. That includes the DVD player, the RF/IR controls, and the push-button control electronics. I will be keeping a close eye on that, and will update my review if the unit fails anytime soon for any reason.
In summary, I would *HIGHLY RECOMMEND* this unit. It worked fine right out of the box, and has an awesome screen along with all the features anyone would want.
