Good points:
Really easy to set up...so glad we bought this. Kept the kids amused from the Isle of wight all the way down to Cornwall!!
Bad points:
The only bad point...(and i'm being picky here) is that if you knocked the plug into the cigarette lighter it switched off.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
portable with the mother screen. very handy just to move around especially if you only have one tv in your house
Bad points:
i have only this weekend connected up the wiring in the car and i must say i am a bit worried as there are wires running round the car that could be interfered with by the children and even worse do run alongside the hand brake etc. you have to have both sets of wires as it is a twin screen but i will try it out for a couple of journeys to see if it causes any really problems
