Everything else. The harness system is hard to use and makes changing the dvd virtually impossible unless you remove it from the harness. After one month of limited use the screen went gray, and it sometimes doesn't play at all.

Not recertified at all - repackaged defective


My kids were excited to get it in. Disappointed to see it go back in the box about an hour later. What a piece of trash. On the bright side Newegg RMA was about as easy as it gets. Just contacted them and they gave me a UPS prepaid return label and an...

2 decent screens SD card slot read AVI movies Carrying case comes with it Stereo Speakers on each screen

It didn't work. I loaded 3 different DVD's - original and burned copies. I also used an SD card with a couple movies on it. All options loaded where you could see the movie trying to start but then it would freeze. It was like the processing power of...

This doesn't work


It is not worth the price even it is cheap

It is cheap

It doesn't really work. When playing movie, sometime it just stop. You will need to work around it by manually hitting the fast forward button and go again

Sylvania SDVD8730


I rolled my jeep at 70mph, these flew off the headrests and ended up somewhere in the back. THEY STILL WORK! They cost ~$60 and people are complaining that they dont fit tight against their headrests? Go pay someone to put built in ones in every one of...

Cheap Swap between vehicles unlike built in. And do it quickly Works fine for what I payed for it.

Do not buy


small portable DVD player with 2 screens

no built in battery, so if you are not near a power source it is useless

Piece of garbage.


ZERO RATING WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE APPROPRIATE. Save the box if you want to return.

Stopped working after 2 dvd's. Customer service from manufacturer is terrible. DO NOT BUY. DO NOT BUY. DO NOT BUY. DO NOT BUY.

Best value in portable DVD market


So far this product has worked well, design should be sturdy enough for kids unless they are very rough with it, and for the price you really can't go wrong in my opinion.

Best price on the market for a dual screen portable DVD. I had seen new ones selling for $89-99, so this recertified one at $59 was a great deal. I was pleased that it looked brand new when it arrived. Has all the basic features my kids would need,...

No battery on this model so you need you use it in the car and keep it plugged in to the car outlets, or use at home with the AC adapter. I have seen another Sylvania model 8732 that has a lithium battery if you need this feature, but a little more...
