    Good to know, I guess it's the old saying that you get what you pay for... I was hoping that they'd be ok, but maybe not. I definitely know I won't be buying those on eBay for $300 a pair, cause that's just too cheap!

    Good to know, was this in a group buy? Is the screen quality good? I have a Kenwood deck and was going to add a monitor to that but it didn't come with headphones nor the headphones option so I want to have the kids to be able to listen to it without boring me with their TV sounds...

    That's great feedback, would you mind seeing if he has any experience with the headrests? I'm more concerned with the TV monitor part, the material can always be reupholsterd, but I'd like to be sure it's some sort of quality at least for kid videos, this ain't no show mobile! Thanks buddy!

    yeah ill ask him. your best bet is to go to your local bestbuy or 6th ave electronics and see them hooked up in the store. some have really crappy pictures when looking from the side. u can get a good deal on tigerdirect.com and amazon.com(i think). alot of these companies have their product made by the same manufacter but just tagged with their company name. ill get some info and check back

    Awesome! I appreciate you checking. I did notice the side viewing was poor but figured that it's really only going to be used while my baby/child is in her child seat and will have a dedicated viewing angle being seated right in front, so I'm not too worried about that.

    I just wanted to see what it would like installed in our trucks, cause sometimes it doesn't look "factory" but as mentioned before, I'm not opposed to reupholtering the headrests, with this economy I had a friend get a great deal on doing a whole boat (ended up being 1/2 off the regular quotes) because of slow work...

    Anyways a bit off topic but I do appreciate you looking into this for me! Thanks!
