Hey Folks,

Just after opinions and experience of anyone who has big screen in car dvd players.

I'm looking at 10.2" or bigger screen. Alpine PKG-RSE2 10.2" is a possibility and there are so many choices, i'm a bit lost. Lots of new, no name 15" screens coming onto the market too.

If you know of a good page that has reviews in Australia It would be appreciated.

I've got a Viscom 8inch roof mounted screen.
Picture is good, however when driving the kids tell me it shakes real bad even though its securely attached to the roof brace. They don't seem to care though, it still keeps them quiet. :)

On this site there are a few larger sizes

I have a no name 15" roof mount, and it is mounted directly where the interior light was. I removed the interior light, and wired in the TV's built in light so that it would come on when the interior light did.

Doesnt move or rattle at all.
IIRC, the brand is bel-canto. is very good quality. It is as good, if not better, than my poioneer 6.5" in-dash. All I remember is that it is one of the ebay cheapies



Remember kids, the more pages of crap in your build thread, the bigger your e-penis is

the older alpine 10.2" wasnt too bad...wasnt the best only becuase its been round for awhile and soo many technical advances have occurred now however the new 10.2" model has a very crisp picture and i reckon looks really good.
