    Thanks in advance

    I bought 4 of the 7 inch Polaroid models from Walmart this past Xmas and find them to have all the options you could ask for.

    They were only $140 to boot. I wouldn't put alot into something that will get knocked around as much as these will.

    I picked up a Panasonic DVD-LA95 before last Christmas for a 25hr road trip (each way). It's got a 9" screen and works GREAT. I managed to get it for under $300 used with accessories on the bay.

    Before buying the unit, I did a lot of research to find out which one would work best for me. Be careful, a lot of the cheaper name brand units (Mintek, Polaroid, Initial, etc) are cheap for a reason. They may look decent initially, but a lot of those units have reliability issues. Be sure to read a LOT of reviews before making a purchase.
