    I frequently drive from England to the north of Scotland, a journey which can vary from 8 - 12 hours. My children are really well behaved but there are only so many kids songs and games of eye-spy one can play and stay sane so I have succumbed..... this helps to pass a couple of hours, and for £130 I am very happy.

    The picture on the second screen is excellent. The picture on the primary device is a bit washed out, and there is some rattling noise from the dvd spinning. This presents no problem in the car, but might if it were to be used on the train. (though the rattling was not audible when headphones are being used.)

    I have a Grand Scenic, and the screens are at a sensible viewing distance away for my children even with my 6'2" frame pushing the seat back.

    Please note that the mounting system is delivered with some v. short bolts suitable only for headrests with a spindle diameter of about 10mm. Mine were slightly longer so I had to spend 64p at a hardware shop to buy 8 M4*25 bolts to mount the system.

    As per other viewers comments there are wires everywhere but then that is a necessary evil. How else do you get power to the unit and send the signal to the second screen and power it unless you go out and spend £1000's on an integrated DVD system.

    All in all great....and the children look forward to long journeys now. I look forward to when they can drive and I can watch the dvd in the back

    I purchased this product because I have lived and breathe the great Philips brand name and all the great products that it traditionally stands for, for a few years now.

    However on this occasion Philips - "you need to re-think this one before the product gives someone a serious injury or worse", let me explain.

    The additional screen is an excellent design and has very good features however the mechanism that attaches the the screen(s) to the headrest is an accident waiting to happen, is totally unnacceptable.

    The bracket that the screen is fitted to stands off the headrest about 4-6 inches further twoards the user (child) than conventional screens of this type. Therefore it is too close to the persons eyesight for one thing, especially in a small car. In addition the same bracket is rigid and i truly believe that if a person (child) was in an accident the sreen may break but you are left with a rigid bracket which effectively becomes a spike..........at head/throat height.

    The product on the whole may be OK but the attaching bracket mechanism is potentially very dangerous and of very poor design. The vehicle i tried to use this contraption in was an Audi A4 saloon, the unit would be impossible to use in anything smaller. I took my system back to the retailer and got a full refund upon my safety statement. This product design should be re-designed in my opinion before it is released for use to the end user. Please bare in mind that 95% of these units that are used in motor hehicles are used to entertain children of all ages.

    i really dont advise you buy this

    phillips are a reliable brand, but this is just crap...
    first thing i noticed out of the box, the actual unit is very heavy and chunky
    second, the actual player, the first screen is crap, there are lines, it is impossible to read anything and is horrible...
    third, you need about 3 cables (the manual doesent tell you which ones) to connect the two screens up
    third thing, it freezes EVERYWHERE. EVERY SINGLE DVD I HAVE PUT IN, IT HAS FROZEN AND MADE A HUGE MARK ON AFTER 40 MINUTES, RENDERING THEM USELES...
    fourth thing, the running time...you dont even want to know with both screens, but with a fully charged battery, on one screen playing a normal movie, it lasted 69 minutes before it runs out...

    utter crap...avoid at ALL COSTS....

    Hey folks. First, this device is great. It has everything I want, including good headrest mounts and 3 seperate jacks for our kids headphones. The built-in speakers are good and plenty loud. And most importantly, it's easily switched to multi-region mode. As we are americans living in the UK with a mix of Region 1 & 2 DVDs, this was critical.

    Here's how (thanks to R. Thorton for his review on Philips PET 720/05):

    1. Switch the player on.
    2. Press Setup on the remote control.
    3. Move the menu selector down to Preferences and then press the Right arrow.
    4. Press 2, 1, 2, 2, 2 and then 5.
    5. Press Left arrow.
    6. Press Down arrow.
    7. The screen should then display Region Code. Press 0.
    8. Press Setup on the remote again to exit.

    And that's it. :)

    I have just got this DVD player and overall I am happy with it,as for the other reviews there are ways of getting round their comments.I googled DVD hacks and now my player is multi region. As for the cables, yes they are a bit untidy but I got round that by inserting the cables into plastic cable tubing, it looks a lot tidier.Don't agree about the brackets being dangerous as when not in use you clip them off but they do make the screens a little closer than they need be and for this reason I only give it 4 stars.
