    First off, I really like these units and they play and look great just as long as you use the DVD player for each screen individually. The real disappointment comes into play when connecting the two units together to play the same video. The fact that the product uses analog connectivity and only comes with a 3 foot long AV cable is its downfall. Now, don’t get me wrong, this may work out fine for you if you plan on attaching the screens on side by side headrests in the same row. But if you have a vehicle (such as a van), where there is the possiblity of someone tripping on this cable or, as in my particular install, you would like to have one screen in the middle row and the other in the rear row, then this is not even possible with this cable. The second and even more disppointing aspect of connecting the units is a result of this product relying on an analog connection. Because it is analog (and not digital), you will also need to accept picture degradation from the unit playing the DVD and second unit. While the picture quality isn’t horrible, the picture quality difference between the player unit and receiver unit IS noticible (even with the 3 foot cable). And as you would imagine (with any analog connection), the longer the distance you send an analog signal the more the quality degrades. With this said, the solution which would make this product GREAT and more desireable would be if Philips redesigned this product to use HDMI connectivity between the screens.

    We were expecting a decent picture from these based on previous reviews, but I wasn’t expecting the single 12V plug that powers both units, leaving me a spare outlet for GPS/cell phone use. Of course, if you’re planning to use one player in vehicle A and the other in vehicle B, then this might be an unpleasant surprise. As reviewers on other sites have mentioned, the sound quality produced by the built-in speakers is not spectacular, but since the whole point of owning these units is to preserve mom and/or dad’s sanity then you’ll surely be adding two pairs of headphones/earbuds. We ordered two pairs of Panasonic RP-HT21 Lightweight Headphones with XBS Port to avoid the yuck factor of sharing earbuds and are well pleased with the combination. We can’t provide any insight into the long term durability of this set, but we are very pleased so far.

    Hooking up these units was very easy if not intuitive. The kids both enjoyed being able to watch the same thing on both screens. Then when the argument over what to watch occurred they could simply pop in their own movie and watch what they each wanted to see separately by just unhooking the video cable connecting the units. The only reason I did not give them five stars was the lack of IR headphone support, but I guess the reason for them not having this functionality is that their might be sound signal bleed if the kids are watching two different movies. All in all great picture quality and would recommend buying over the single dvd units with just a separate monitor for the other viewer.
