Review 1 for Philips Portable Blu-ray Player with Dual 9" Screens, PB9011/37

Best money ever spent!

Rather than pay $1800 for the built-in 7" DVD players in my new minivan, I did some research & found this item. Not only does it have larger screens, but it plays Blu-Ray discs, and for only a small fraction of the price of the OEM units. Setup was a snap, and my kids are in heaven. They are so quiet that it actually makes driving long distances a pleasure! The only downside is that the cables are relatively short, so you might need to buy longer replacement ones in order to hide the cables & make a neat installation. Not a major issue, though, and in a car or SUV, it probably wouldn't be an issue at all. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase, Wal-Mart had a much better price on the same item as the major online retail sites, and using the Site-To-Store shipping was quick and easy. Highly recommended!

Great disc player, poor USB media player

Pros: it has played several different Blu-rays and DVDs without problems. Both screens look great. The sound is high pitched because of small speakers, but this is good because it is not washed out by road noise. The volume is sufficient. HDMI out let's you watch on big TVs. Main unit has built in stand. Other than the wires, it really looks good mounted. My kids LOVE it!
Note: The pros outweigh the cons. I recommend it.
Cons:
1)You can't use the screens as monitors for things like smart phones, iPads, or Xbox. The main screen has no input, and the other screen has 2 analog mini plug inputs for video and audio. You may get the second screen to work, but you will have to have some unique adapters.
2) wires are not long enough to let you hide them under the upholstery, so they are ugly and tend to get kicked out by little feet.
3) the USB option is a joke: I spent hours trying to format the DVDs that I had ripped to the computer. The manual provides no instructions. In my experience it only reads DVI (not .mov or .mp4) and only in 4:3 format. I had to dramatically lower resolution from HD to 640x480. What is strange is that the screens are 16:9 aspect. The result is low resolution, black lines above and below, and then the image is stretched to fit the screen! You cannot change the aspect ratio on these screens either, so get used to the weird image. It is in desperate need of a firmware update, but the manual and website do not provide any evidence that one exists. Maybe it works better with DIVX format. Good luck, or just use the discs because they look great.

I originally purchased these DVD players because they had such good reviews. Maybe mine are just defective but for some reason the main screen picture gets all messed up. The other screen will be perfectly fine though. It doesn't do it all the time but it's definitely not something I can just let go. :/
