Good quality Car DVD Players doesn’t come cheap. If you opt for the hi-tech, branded players then it’s likely to cost you a fortune. So, ultimately you will have to decide which is more important for you; quality or price.
This is not to say that all cheap players are bad. You can buy a few brands from China wholesale sellers that can give some of the top brands a run for their money. But that being said, there are no warranties or guarantees with these cheap brands.
Types of DVD players for cars
Primarily there are five types of DVD players for cars. They are:
- Portable DVD units
- Headrest DVD players
- Roof-mount/overhead DVD players
- DVD head units/multimedia receivers
- Remote-mounted in-car DVD players
Things to consider before buying a DVD player:
There are a number of factors that you need to keep in mind while buying. Are you going to buy a piece from Wholesale electronics stores or are you going to a known brand’s showroom?
Then there is the question of compatibility. Some players can only play DVD-Rs and DVD-RWs while others can play Blu-ray, CD, CD-RW, CD-R, and mp3 formats also.
The screens for portable car players come in varied sizes, yes bigger is usually better as you can see everything clearly, but the screen also needs to fit inside the car comfortably. If the space for the screen is too small then you might have to make do with a HD quality, high resolution small screen.
Buy a player that can run on battery for long periods, this way you can use rechargeable batteries and wouldn’t need to dip into the car’s power source for long periods.
Even though you would like only the top range product, but due to money constraints it’s not always possible to get what you want. In such instances, you will have to settle for a player which has the features that are most important to you, leaving out some of the additional features that you may have liked to have.
