    Default Recomendations Please...

    I would like to get a in dash dvd player with motorised screen for my car. I want it to do all the usual stuff i.e radio, cds etc as well. I pressume I will need a single din unit and a facia plate to fit it into my 53 plate vectra.

    I can't be spending loads and loads but at the same time I don't want to buy a really cheap unit and regret it. Does anyone have an suggestions on what might be a good one to go for?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dan.

    Hi Dan,

    i would highly recommend the jvc kd-avx2, i;ve got it in mine and i love it. 3.5 inch widescreen and plays absolutely everything, whatever the format!! the screen is crystal clear and it makes the factory speakers perform outstandingly, bass is much deeper and the top end is very sharp.

    loads of inputs and outputs at the back for everything you would need.

    can get pics if you want of what the real picture of the screen looks like and not the promo stuff.

    hope this helps

    There are severall made by companies i have never heard of on flea bay. Saw one the other day 7" flip out touchscreen with all the usual gadgets & dolby surround and think it was £379 which is a bargain.

    Otherwise somethink like a Kenwood KVT-627dvd or Alpine IVA-D310 both brilliant units but cost a fair bit more (Prob about £600 Kenny - £700 Alpine)

    There are double DIN DVD players out there .... I remember seeing them when I bought my HU a few months ago.

    Honestly can't remember what sort of price they were, but that's maybe another option?

    only problem with the double din is that you can't get a factory fascia for it, you have to buy a single din and adapt it, or make your own

    Thanks for your replies, I like the look (and price) of the ripspeed unit in the link from madgunner, does anyone else have any opinions or experiences with this one?

    Cheers

    For a bit more you can get a Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD LINKY
    I've got the 6600 (similar spec) in mine and it is a brilliant piece of kit

    Single Din units start at £399 for the Ripspeed unit and spiral upwards. I would suggest going to ripspeed and try one out, my local one lets you try out all the units on display and they usually have dvds playing so you can see the screen quality.
    As for the double din units the cheapest I've seen is £469 for the Kenwood DDX6029 which isnt a bad unit. The only problem is with double dins is the lack of an adaptor plate as mentioned before.
    My advice for which ever you decide on is to have a good shop around coz I've seen prices vary by as much as £150 online so use Google!!
