Fluid 7" Dual-Screen Portable Touchscreen DVD Player
I typically never go for the cheapest option...In this case I did, thinking a DVD player is a DVD player and my kids who are under the age of 5 wouldn't care whether or not it was HD quality. As long as it played the movie we put in, we were going to be happy with that while on road trips.
Oh boy, were we wrong...
As someone else pointed out, even at max volume, the kids couldn't hear the movie, I've had headphones that played louder than the speakers on these units. We actually stopped and purchased external speakers to plug in for sound.
Most importantly, we rarely used these DVD players, only on long road trips to keep the kids entertained. This to say that after 3 road trips they began taking a long time to actually start reading the dvd's and play the movies. By the 4th road trip, nothing...they just stopped working.
All this to say, do yourself a favor and buy something else...I just picked up another Dual screen portable DVD player and it's 10 times better for just a few dollars more. The brand is Phillips.

Works well once you figure out the trick.
I had this dvd player for a road trip and spent hours trying to find a format it would play from usb or sd card i had some movies on dick that would work and others that wouldn't finally i discovered they need to be xvid files... i got a free converter program called format factory it works!!! i have now a bunch of movies on a 32 gb sd card working like a dream! there is no information of any kind on the internet that i could find ... just by trial and error did i find this so if you read this you can thank me by paying it forward! so i reformat the files to avi xvid 320 p and they worked haven't tried higher resolutions yet cause this one worked and i was in a hurry.!

Great compact unit
We were looking for smaller portable dvd players for road trips for our child and came across this on sale for $99.99. Took the plunge, and am happy with our purchase. Love to slim profile, 2nd screen option and touch screen controls which reduces the chance that our child accidentally touches a button by mistake. Screen is LED and good for the price range. Lower viewing angle is weaker, but still good overall. My only issue is that the touch screen controls on the unit lack a "next/previous chapter" button, and the buttons you think would do that actually fast forward/rewind the dvd. Next/previous buttons are on the remote, so don't lose it!

Easy to hook up
I bought this portable dvd player and it arrived as our family was going camping for the weekend. We have a young family and they love their videos. I literally had the dvd player out of the box and running in under 5 minutes. It looks good and the screen size is just right.
The picture quality is good and the sound is excellent. It doesn't sound "tinny" or "hollow" which I thought it might. With the a/c on and the road noise, it was fine.
I would recommend this product and the price was right. We had looked at a few others but most places were sold out, so we ordered online and we received within a week.
