Car DVD players – different approaches to in-car entertainment

When you buy a car DVD player, the first thing you need to decide is where to put it. Would you like it hanging from the ceiling? Would you like it to be built into the backrest of the driver’s and passenger’s seats? Would you like it to just hang from the back of the seats (the cheaper option)? These are important questions to answer that will determine your price and installation effort required.

There are three main types of in-car DVD player installation: ceiling, headrest and over-the-seat.

The advantages of ceiling mounting:

  • It folds up nicely and stays out of the way when not in use.
  • It folds up and is very sturdy and will not be knocked off or knocked over

The disadvantages of ceiling mounting:

  • Some require drilling holes in the roof of the car
  • It cannot be moved to another location once installed (without much effort).

The advantages of headrest assembly:

  • install east. Simply remove the current headrest and insert a new headrest.
  • Allows for two screens, which can be great for kids and games like Xbox 360 or PS3.

The disadvantages of headrest mounting:

  • Replacing your current headrest may not be as convenient as your previous headrest.
  • The new headrest may not match your vehicle’s interior color scheme.

In conclusion, the advantages of over-the-seat installation:

  • Easy and quick to install. No tools required.
  • Easy and quick to move or remove. Again, no tools are required.

The disadvantages of installing over the seat:

  • The DVD player can be knocked over or even dropped.
  • Likewise, it’s much easier to scratch the screen since it’s closer to the passenger.

Whichever option you choose, you will love having great in-car entertainment with your car DVD player.
