I have a 12.1" Jensen unit that I bought at CircuitCity. It was an on-line special for $900 installed.
Not sure about the resolution, to be honest. It's decent, not fantastic, but not bad.
The DVD has never skipped, at least not yet. I've had it about 10 months now.
It comes with a remote. The built-in games are sort of lame, but I didn't care for that feature anyway so I just ignore it.

#380 of 409 DVD for 2008 Honda Accord sedan??

Do any of you have a good recommendation of what DVD player to add to a 2008 Accord sedan? Seat back or roop mounted screen? Where would the DVD head unit be mounted? Suggestions?

I would think the seat back mounted screens would be your ONLY choice in a sedan like the Accord. A roof mounted one would be difficult for rear passengers to view and it would block rear visibility. You can probably mount the unit under one of the seats.

I have been using screenpatronus.com. There is cheaper, plastic film to buy for your electronics, but they donít compare to those that screenpatronus.com sells.
#384 of 409 dvd won't play
Mar 21, 2009 (6:39 am)
I have just purchased a 2005 grand caravan with an overhead dvd player. When I load a disk in the player it spins inside the player, signals that the dvd player is loading , then opens and spits out the disk. What is happening?

Get a good DVD cleaning disc to clean the lens in the player. follow the instructions. Also get a cleaner to clean off the actual DVD disc.

#387 of 409 What's a Good DVD Player for a Minivan w/ 3 kids
Jul 08, 2009 (11:24 am)
I'm looking for advice from folks who've dealt with this before. I've got 3 kids (6,5,3) and some long trips coming up in our minivan. We've gotten to the point that the whining and fighting makes us dread trips over an hour long...so to sedate them and make our trip less stressful, we will get a dvd player. There seems to be 3 options: portable dvd player, overhead dvd player, and headrest dvd players.
We're considering getting a portable dvd player, but want one with 3 headphone jacks. Ideally, wireless headphones. This seems to be a problem -- most have 2. Perhaps we can get an adapter for headphones with wires, plus one wireless headphone. We don't want a junky brand (Insignia). We would like 10" screen or bigger so the back seat kid can see well. If we can't get 3 kids listening to one player, we'd probably get 2 portable players.
Overhead players seem too pricey, but if there's a really good one out there I'd like to know. I had heard Jensen made good ones, but I can't find any! Best Buy had Alpine and Insignia. I heard Insignia would be a poor choice, not sure about Alpine ($700). Neither were on sale.
Headrest dvd players are another option. We don't want to replace our actual headrests, maybe just get those flat screens that strap over them. But, I can't find many reviews. This is my personal favorite option, but I don't know anyone who has a headrest dvd player and don't know anything about the different brands. If we go this route, we'd probably get the two-screen player (one is a dummy screen and plays the same thing as the screen with the actual player).
Any help is appreciated! To those of you with 3 kids (or more) -- do they fight over what movies to play or how to tilt screens or sound levels? Do headphones have individual sound control? I'm curious about things like that too.
