Imagine buying a TV and having to buy a stand separately- Not happening here:
Reviewed in the United States on August 30, 2020
My wife's poor arms were getting exhausted holding up an unsharable ipad for movies between our minions on long drives. So we decided to invest in a car DVD system.
I actually ordered and returned 2 systems before I came across this system. The Naviskauto 12" screen was just too big and in your face. The Wonnie 10" system was more expensive, and suffered from the same problems as all other systems- they all depend on a pathetic mounting system consisting of nylon webbing that holds things in place like a gummi bear would hold up a wall picture instead of a nail. So my wife's problem was not fixed. I'm specifically not discussing screen resolution, because let's face it, cell phone screen resolutions will all be superior, but remember how much you paid for that device instead. That being said, giving a kid an HD screen that they might break is a bad decision, and at 10" 1080p HD is completely unnecessary.
This system has a MAJOR leg up on the competition for 2 reasons:
1) Fangor included 2 power cords- one is the cigarette lighter, and the other is an internationally interchangeable DC outlet plug. Having a backup powersource is great, but no one else gives you an outlet cord, and finding second party cords with the right DC connectors is murder (RIP Radioshack). My car and many others are putting outlets in the center console, so being able to limit clutter in a car packed to the gills on long trips with kids is a HUGE plus.
2) The hard plastic, screwed in bracket mounting system is GOLD. No, better- whatever you get if Platinum and Titanium have a baby. The provided bracket screws into the back of the screens like a real TV, holding it strongly, which NO one else does. Competitiors don't even have a screw pilot hole for a solid hold if you wanted to try to jury-rig a mounting system on your own. The bracket screws SECURELY down around the legs of your car's headrest. Aside from keeing the screen on the headrest, anyone who has used a laptop (which is an LCD screen usually), knows that the angle of the screen makes a huge difference, which this bracket fixes that issue completely. Lastly, accessory mounting systems still don't maintain the angle of the screen, AND can get quite expensive- the Naviskauto one cost $30 for just ONE screen! Imagine buying a TV, but having to pay 50% more just for a TV stand to use the TV! I applaud Fangor for this hugely!
