Neil, Heysham

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
One single connection to the car's accesory socket and all necessary cables included. The system works really well and securely attaches the screens to the back of the car seats. Being able to control the DVD player from the front seat is really useful.
Bad points:
The DVD player has no internal battery, so if you start the DVD player then start the car engine, usually that's enough to turn the DVD player off and necessitate a restart, not good since it doesn't remember what point you were at in the film.
Also, the clips for the staps attaching the screens to the seat backs seem very weak - one snapped the first time I used it.
