A good DVD player can make a drive in your car a better experience. The following WheelZine article tells you how to choose one for your car.
Long drives can turn out to be very boring, if you do not have a source of entertainment in your car. Wouldn’t it be great to watch your favorite movies and listen to the songs that you love, on your journey? For this, you will need a DVD player in your car. Whenever you feel tired of driving, you can listen to your favorite songs, and you will feel rejuvenated, or just park your car in an appropriate location, and watch one of the movies that you like. To make the movie-watching fun, you should have a good DVD player in your car. The myriad of DVD player alternatives available in the market, makes it difficult for you to choose one.
Tips to Select a Car DVD Player
There are innumerable types of DVD players (shade plate, high-definition, large screen, ceiling mount, in-built GPS, etc.) available in the market, and all of them claim to be the ‘best’. I believe that the term ‘best’ is subjective, it depends upon the features that you seek in your DVD player. To make it easier for you, I have stated a few steps that would help you choose a good car DVD player.
First you should zero in on the features that you would like to have in your DVD player. You would love to have a DVD player better than the one in your neighbor’s car, won’t you? So, it is better that you ask your neighbor the model of the DVD player in his/her car. Make a note of all the features that you desire. When you are deciding the features that you want in your player, you should keep your budget in mind. Remember, the number of features is directly proportional to the cost of the player.
Once you have finalized the list of features and your budget, your next task is to find the models that will match your requirements. Use the Internet for your research. You will see many models which have the attributes that you desire, and do not exceed your budget. You can also go to the shops nearby and inquire about the DVD players that they sell. When you make a list of the models that you like, see that you make a note of the points mentioned below:
- Model number
- Warranty period
Study the list of the models that you have prepared, select the best one from that list. You can order online, or go to the shop which sells that particular model. To see whether the DVD player is perfectly compatible with the sound system in your car, you should test it (by installing it in your car), before you buy it, and this is not possible if you order online. Avoid buying a cheap DVD player, it will not last long, and will turn out to be a waste of money!
A good DVD player in your car will entertain you and the people accompanying you, throughout the journey. You should always pay attention to your needs when you buy a car DVD player, for example, if you are someone who is very particular about the quality of the movie that you see, then you should go for a large high-definition screen DVD player, and if you are traveling with people who have different tastes, then a single screen player would not be enough, as all of them would not like to watch the same movie, to avert conflict you should go for a dual screen player.
I have seen a few people buying DVD players with a number of features that they hardly use; this is a complete waste of money! Remember, the best car DVD player, is not the one with the maximum number of features, but is the one with maximum utility.
