How to Buy Car DVD Player

Updated on October 27, 2011

In the past, a car DVD player was primarily used for rear-seat passengers. Car owners now have the option of car DVD players that can be installed in the dash and operated by the driver. Those interested in expanding their car's entertainment capability may want to know how to buy car DVD player.

A DVD player for a car may be an in-dash model that is installed to replace the car radio or CD player. DVD players may be located on the backs of the headrests for the rear-seat passengers. Sun visor DVD players can be for either the driver's or passenger's side.

Another option is a DVD player installed between the front seats and rear seats. Instead of having a DVD player permanently installed in the car, a metal frame secured to the roof between the front and rear seats can hold a portable DVD player. This way, the portable DVD player can be used in other locations and easily replaced when necessary.

In-dash DVD players have a safety feature that prevents DVD's from being displayed on the screen unless the car's emergency brake is applied. Therefore, the DVD player cannot be in use while the car is in motion.

Some models play music from an MP3 player. Not all models have a navigation system. If these features are desired, the customer should check the features of the DVD player. The DVD players may not include everything that is needed for installation.

Several car DVD players are designed to allow the user to install it themselves. If the person wants to install the DVD player themselves, they may want to read the customer reviews to help determine if people have been able to successfully install them or if they required professional installation.

Customer reviews for car DVD players can be helpful when trying to decide which one to buy. However, the information in a customer review may not provide correct information or describe problems that are attributed directly to the DVD player. For example, when people complain about interrupted power or sound quality, it can be difficult to judge if the problem lies with the DVD player, improper installation, or quality of the car speakers.

The in-dash DVD player may include a radio and the ability to play MP3's and CD's as well as DVD's. Several customers who bought the Pyle 7-inch in-dash model were happy with the easy installation. One customer said that though they have had problems with CD's skipping in CD players, they have not had this problem with the Pyle DVD player.

This model has a touch screen control and a wireless remote. A common complaint about the Pyle DVD player is about the manual being difficult to understand. Also, some people received DVD players with cracked screens, but the DVD players were replaced by the company.

Many customers were very happy with their purchases of Bose indash DVD players. People often are surprised that the Bose in-dash DVD players are affordable. The sound and picture quality as well as the sleek design are common praises in positive customer reviews. Some customers had technical problems with Bose in-dash DVD players.

Here is a page with some bestselling car DVD players including name brands like Pioneer and Boss. I found customer reviews written about these models to be very informative.
