As the holidays approach, many families will be traveling. I don’t know about you, but traveling with kids can be a challenge to say the least! We used to have a 12 passenger van and it was great because we could space the kids out. We don’t have it anymore though so the kids always seem to be picking at each other when we go places. Portable DVD players are a parent’s best friend on road trips! I think back to when I was little and wonder how my parents got through trips without one!
Audiovox carries a full line of portable DVD players. I was excited to review one since we will be doing traveling in the weeks to come and we need something to keep the kids entertained.
I was sent the DS9341PK which includes a 9″ swivel screen and 2 sets of headphones.
The headphones are high quality and they even fold up for easy storage! I personally prefer headphones over ear buds. Ear buds can be hard for the kids to keep in place and most don’t fit little ears. The headphones that came with this DVD payer are very comfortable and fit the kids as well as my husband and I. An AC/DC adapter and a vehicle DC power adapter are also included to give you power options.
The case has an elastic strap at each corner to hold the player firmly in place.
The player was super simple to put in the van. It has one strap that goes around the headrest and another that goes around the vehicle seat back (the bottom strap wasn’t fastened yet in the above pic). The straps help the player in place well and I like that it was kept against the seat back so it wouldn’t get knocked around when the kids get in and out.
The screen is large and has a great picture with 640 x 234 resolution. It was very clear and the color was fantastic. The controls were easy to operate which is important because there are times when the kids need to do it themselves. This DVD player also came with a remote with really comes in handy! One feature I really like is that the screen swivels 270 degrees. This is great because it can get ugly if one of the kids can’t see the screen!
As an added bonus, this player has an audio/video output so it can be hooked up to a tv. This is great for when we stop over at a hotel. We can take it out of the van and let the kids watch a movie in the room.
Do you prefer Blu-ray discs? Audiovox has portable Blu-ray players as well! They also carry car security and remote start systems, iPod docking systems, SiriusXM, under cabinet tv’s and more. You’re sure to find something great for those on your Christmas list! You can connect with Audiovox on Facebook and see their full selection of products at audiovoxproducts.com.
