So, So


The software that was included does not work with Windows 7 and I had to scramble to find a program to download the photos. Some times the photos are clear and good, other times fuzzy and hard to see. Some times the flash works. Some times I can...

Broke in 2 days


First off, takes absolutely horrible pictures indoors. Talk about pixelated - these were terrible! We bought this for our 7 year old as a birthday present, and he was so happy, he took about 15 picture right away. On the second day, when he turned it...

Truly Abysmal


I can't stress how horrible the pictures are with this camera. Absolutely no detail. Every picture looks like it has distortion. At least it's light weight so it won't cause too much damage to the wall you throw it against. How a company like Polaroid...

Awful camera!


I bought this for my daughter for her birthday. I wanted to get her an inexpensive, good quality camera that she could use, but that I wouldn't be terribly upset if she lost. The camera feels cheap, like light plastic. She opened it and immediately...

Junk Don't Buy


Purchased this product at Target. It stopped working 18 days after return policy for Target ended and 90 day warranty expired.  Neither Target or Polaroid would resolve the problem.  Terrible customer service from both.  Stuck with dvd player that...

Polaroid 8" two screen DVD player: short lifespan


We bought this knowing it won't last long but at an out of pocket final cost of sixty bucks, we took a gamble.  Sure enough, 1 trip in the car and exactly 1 hour later, the sound on the second screen would not work.  Tried everything, plug, unplug,...


cheap, you get what you pay for, and maybe not even that

Do not purchase!


This is a horrible unit. From the beginning it did not work as you expect modern electronics to work. It had a hard time reading disks. I did not use it much but on a long trip it inexplicably stopped after 15 to 20 minutes. It stopped working...

cheap Price ($200 or less)

Cheap Product. Polaroid service claimed a 5% malfuncion rate

Consumer review by: texasmomrocks (



We bought this as a replacement to a set that had outlived its life. The kids were all excited to be able to watch their favorite movies again while we went on our weekend adventures. That didn't last long. After about 30 mins into the movie, the...

None - as it would not work past the 1st 30 mins of play
