We purchased these in mid-May for our 2007 Sienna, and really like them. We installed them ourselves, and there are a couple of things you should know up front:

1. The cables run through the headrest prongs. You have to have access through the seat to grab them and run them to a power source. The Sienna has a plastic skidpad on the back of each front seat, so I was able to reach through the side and grab the cables. If you don't have that, getting the cables may be tricky.

2. The provided cables have power and ground, but they are "pigtails" (exposed wires at the end of the cables) and no 12V adapter is provided with the set. We found a "Banana Jack" 12V adapter through which they could be threaded at RadioShack for $10 each, which we could easily plug into our 12V outlets in the van.

Installation was simple, aside from those minor caveats. The picture quality is good, and we really liked the wireless headphones provided (I wasn't sure they were wireless from the product description listed). Note that the touch screen does not allow you to select DVD menu items in what you are watching, but instead give you the players' function menus, such as setting up the FM output channel and whatnot. The remote also needs to be pointed at the headrest for it to work, which isn't ideal, but isn't a big problem either.

For the money, these players were everything we really wanted. No potential projectiles in the event of a crash, and easy to remove when we're not on a long trip. Also easy enough to install for two non-electricians or car audio/video experts.

Let me first start out saying that I have owned this product for over a month now and it has exceeded my expectations. I chose headrest monitors instead of the drop down roof mounted ones because I did not want to obstruct rear view vision and allow independent viewing / game play while on long road trip. These cd /dvd players mounted in the headrest eliminate the extra wiring to a dvd console.

My only hesitation from purchasing these earlier was from not knowing if there was any noise coming from the fan / dvd that would drive me bonkers, but I was very pleased to learn this was not the case. These units were quiet - the only thing I can hear from the rear were giggles from the Monty Python movie my son was watching while we were on a three hour trip. Simply Awesome.

I installed these myself since there was power under the seat (for power seats), but had to call support to find out which post carried the power and which were a/v. Tech guy was helpful - power cable is on DVD side(FYI). The size of the screen was perfect - it looks alot bigger than I imagined and I am glad I did not go for the bigger screen that would have been problematic. The brightness and quality of the picture was superb. comes with two remotes and good to use since touch screen is great if you don't have the remote handy, but you will have to put up with finger smudges.

I have had this product installed for several weeks now and it works great. I like the quality of the product (leather/player/screen/wires),the picture and sound are great and it has a lot of features. The touchscreen is fun. Two independent units is great for us now and when the kids are older.

For those posts that talk about it "not working" or being a terrible product, it probably has more to do with their poor installation, misunderstanding of eletronic systems or requirements, or incompetence. It was probably not an actual defective product. The person who mentioned that they had to lean the seat back to put in a DVD must not have planned the install. You put the DVD slots facing in, not out towards the door.

===Requirements===
1. Check your headrest post hole width
2. Check your headrest post hole diameter
3. Check to see if you have access into the seat to grasp the wires
4. Determine how you will supply power (a) tap into the car's power system - which i do NOT recommend or (b) Power from the 12v accessory outlet or cigarette lighter. This way you dont mess with the car's power system and it is all completely and easily removable. You need to check the fuse for the outlet you plan to use to ensure the amps will be ok. In most cases you will be fine as these units together will use 1 amp (18 watts together or 9 watts each). Drop by RadioShack and buy a Y plug for your 12V accessory plug, then buy a 12V accessory plug with bare wire ends along with some crush tubes for joining wires.
5. Determine if/how you will link them together to share video/audio. TO link them you will need to buy a male to male RCA stereo audio/video cable (3 prong)

I purchased a pair of these for my 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited a few months ago. I should have done it years ago! We absolutely love them. I researched and researched (thats what electrical engineers do best, right?) before buying, and you can't go wrong with these. The headrests are an almost perfect match to the interior color of my Sequoia. The leather on the headrests is of the same high quality as my original interior. You would not know that these did not come with the car. The screens are a very nice size. The headphones have a clear sound quality. They were easy to hook up, just tied into the back of the 12 volt cigarette lighter that is already in the center console. Cables are also provide to connect the two screens together. Both kids can watch their own movie, or watch the same movie. We have friends with the same Sequoia and they paid over $1600 to have Vizualogic headrest DVDs installed. The screens they have are smaller and both kids always must agree on the same movie (good luck). They do not look any nicer than these power acoustik ones either. They would be easy to take back out later when you sell the car, but I would bet they add $500 of value anyway so you might as well sell them with the car.

Update: Nov. 2011. After a year and a half both DVD players are still working with no problems at all. Headphones work great also. We take lots of road trips and these are worth their weight in gold. I highly recommend these DVD headrests.

Update: Mar. 2014. I have had them installed for over 4 years now and they still work as well as the day we bought them. I highly recommend them.
