    This review is from: Sylvania SDVD8732 7-Inch Dual Screen Portable DVD Player with Built In 3.5 Hour Battery Life and USB/SD Card Reader (Electronics)

    I bought this dvd system a week before a 7 hour road trip. We had bought a minivan 2 weeks before, but had not yet had a chance to install an overhead tv/dvd system. My husband was initially against getting these, since we plan on installing the overhead tv, but I convinced him by pointing out he and our son will likly be occupying said tv playing video games while the younger girls whine in the back. He quickly agreed with me after that. LOL.
    Initially I was looking for 9 inch screens. I was afraid the 7 inch would be too small. I was wrong. The 7 inch screens are more than adequete for my 3 and 6 year old.
    The main deciding factors for purchasing this product over the others were the sd/usb capability and the 5 hour battery. This is the only portable system I could find with sd/usb capability. It also happened to be one of the cheapest. Yay! The difficulty in accessing the dvd player wasn’t really a concern of mine, because I honestly didn’t plan on using it. It’s so much easier to insert the sd card preloaded with multiple movies especially in a vehicle. Personally I used 2 4gb card with 4-5 movies per card. To my utter delight, when the first movie was finished, it automatically started the next movie on the card!!! So great for long car rides.
    I chose this model with the battery over the cheaper one, because I didn’t like the idea that I was going to have to restart the movie every time I got gas or turned off my vehicle. The battery takes care of this and continues to play the movie while pumping, however, it only continues to play the movie on the main screen. Luckily the extra screen that turned off, was in front of my 6 year old and there were no major meltdowns or tantrums. She just leaned over and watched her sisters screen for a few minutes.
    The mounting system is a basic velcro type strap mounting. Nothing fancy, but I wasn’t needing or expecting it to be. It holds the tv’s to the headrest. It would have been a pain to access the dvd player, had I been using the dvd player, but so would inserting a new dvd every hour and a half. Trust me, preload a sd card, I think it can read up to a 16gb, but don’t quote me, with as many movies as you can, and don’t even mess with the dvd player. No worries about bumps and skipping either.
    The picture quality is okay. It’s not the best I’ve ever seen, but it’s not bad either. The viewing angles are also good. My son crawled back there and watched with them at one point. The sound output is great. My older daughter wore her headphones most of the time, but my younger one only lasted a few hours with them on. It’s a big van though, so I could listen to the radio in the front, while they listened to their movies in the back with very little bleeding between.
    All in all, I loved this product. Could it be better, sure, but then it wouldn’t be $109. It is an excellent value and well worth the quiet peaceful roadtrip I had. I would definitely recommend.

    This review refers to the Sylvania SDVD9104 9-Inch Dual Screen DVD Player with USB/SD Card Reader not the 7 inch version. At the time of this review I have owned these players for a little over a month and these are my initial impressions and a few trial and error tips I figured out.

    Pros:
    1. Cost – for the price you get 2 large screen portable players with the capability to play DVD’s as well as the ability to play movies off a SD card or USB stick. (See cons for thoughts on video formats.)
    2. Accessories – It comes with a remote. This is not listed on the product description (at least when I bought it) and is a big plus for me. Not many other brands offer remotes. It also includes a car and wall adapter, cable adapter for hooking in an RCA jack source, and a carry bag I didn’t much care for. (it was clear)
    3. Video Quality – For a portable DVD player it is pretty good. Shows do not appear grainy to my eyes and are relatively sharp with good color quality. Let’s be honest, it’s not a 120 Mhz LED backlit flatscreen, but if you were expecting that I would like to invite you to join us back at a place we call reality.
    4. Battery – This player includes a battery in the master unit that keeps the unit playing even when the car is turned off. I’m not sure how long it lasts but for short stops it’s great. Also several prior reviews state the battery does not run the slave unit. This is not true. If they are connected together the battery will power the second screen. The slave unit unfortunately does not have a battery of it’s own.
    4. Mounting Straps – Several reviews state you cannot open the player with the headrest straps on. This is totally false! The straps slide through pegs mounted in the case on the back and do not disrupt accessing the disc door.

    Cons:
    1. Cord Length – The cable between the 2 units is short and if you have a three year old who likes to kick cables this could be a problem with it stretched temptingly between the seats.
    2. Video formats – The unit comes with an SD slot and usb slot so you can play videos from either of these devices and skip the DVD’s. This is a huge plus and one of the few players I found that have it. Unfortunately there are NO included instructions to specify the video formats supported! The following is what I have determined through multiple trial and error attempts and much frustration.
    Supported container formats: AVI, MPG, DIVX, ie files ending in .AVI, .mpg, and .divx or .dvx will be recognized by the device.
    Unsupported container formats (the device won’t even see these files): .mp4, .m4v, .mov, .mkv, .qt, and .wmv
    Using these container formats encoding with any of the following codecs works: mpeg-4 (divx/xvid compatible), mpeg-2, and the Divx codec. I am not sure if h.264 works but prior reviews have indicated not and I would be surprised if these units have the horsepower for that.
    Also I have found 640×480 resolution works well for video files on this size screen. also I use a bitrate of about 1500.
    3. DVD door is tight. The spring on the dvd door is rather strong and tries to push the door open against the latch. As a result it can be a pain to open especially when mounted on a headrest. The solution I found was to squeeze the door closed even more thereby releasing the tension and then the latch slides easily.

    Unknowns: I have owned these units for a little over a month and they have held up well to 2 kids under six. How long they will last……..I’m not sure.

    I have all of my kids movies in video files, so I wanted something which could read movies off a flash disk. It understands mp4 and avi containers. It hangs when trying to play h264 video. I re-encoded the desired movies into a lower resolution (to save disk) and used mpeg4/xvid video in an mp4 container. Works well with these files on a 16G SD card.

    As others have mentioned, using the straps prohibits accessing the DVD player. That is a pretty big issue if you plan to use the DVD drive.

    The primary unit has AV out only, the secondary has AV in only. I would have liked to simply use my existing video devices (phones, iPads, PVPs, etc) to supply the video for both and forget the local flash entirely, but for the price I can’t complain.

    The devices themselves are thick and appear cheaply made. Only time will tell how long they work.

    Update: I forgot to mention an added bonus. When playing movies from the flash drive, the unit automatically plays the next file. I have a good 24+ hours of video that it plays through on long trips. Really convenient. Of course it is battery powered as well so even during fuel stops the kids are entertained.

    Update 2: How to convert video to use on this device. I use handbrake. It works on Windows, Linux, Mac and its free. I set up a simple profile with the following setup:
    – Container: MP4. No additional options necessary
    – Picture: width 480, anamophic “none”, cropping automatic
    – Filters: none should be necessary but with some (older) interlaced DVDs it may be necessary. YMMV
    – Video: Codec MPEG-4, framerate same as source, constant framerate. I use average bitrate of 1500, but you can play with this for better quality or lower if video stutters.
    – Audio: AAC(ffmpeg), stereo, 128kbps, “auto” sample rate.
    – Subtitles and chapter markers are up to you, but I don’t want them.

    Handbrake will open just about any video source but if you are converting from DVD or Bluray with copy protection, that is a whole other issue entirely. I’ll just say “AnyDVD” and leave it at that.
