What makes the best overhead DVD Player?
Appearance First and foremost, before you worry about functionality, if you're going to install something to the interior of your car it has to look the part. Fortunately, nowadays, overhead DVD players are sleek with clean lines and come in a variety of colours to match the interior of your car. Higher roof space, lends itself to a flip down DVD player, like in an SUV, but it’s not essential. We would recommend the stylish CR1506 which has been carefully crafted to enhance the fit and finish of the unit. A high gloss appearance lends itself to a luxuriousness that you don’t always get with overhead DVD players. Plus, it’s slim and lightweight, considering the whopping 15.6” screen.

Compatibility Make sure you check the compatibility of an overhead DVD player before you buy it. Some overhead DVD players only run DVD-Rs and therefore dramatically reduce your entertainment options. Look out for ones which can run MP3 files and CDs, to save any unexpected disappointment. Luckily, Xtrons overhead DVd players run in a variety of formats including: VCD, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-9, DVD±R, DVD±RW meaning that they should play just about anything.
Inputs The modern day expectation is that any new piece of technology should come complete with inputs and ports to match our many devices. The more inputs your overhead DVD player has, the more entertainment you can get out of it. The majority of Xtrons overhead DVD players come with SD card ports, USB ports and even HDMI ports to hook up the latest console for gaming purposes. We would recommend the multi-purpose CR133HD Black for it’s input accessibility and much more.
Accessories Everybody loves to feel like they’ve gotten a good deal. Added accessories in the form of remote controls and games discs are part of the parcel at Xtrons. You can opt to choose further accessories for your overhead DVD player like headphones but beware that they usually come at an extra cost.
Screen It’s important that when you’re buying a new piece of in-car entertainment that you get the most up-to-date and high spec’ version, so that it doesn’t become outdated within a few years. The key feature of any overhead DVD player has to be the screen. The modern day expectation is that it’s HD ready, but it should also be more than that. You should consider the size of the screen you’d prefer, its resolution and any other functionalities. We would recommend the impressive CR108HDS with its elegant touch panel feature with soft blue LED atmospheric lamps to encapsulate the perfect viewing atmosphere. The 10” HD digital 1280*800 resolution wide screen generates more pixels for a sharper image. Watch the video review.
Angles Obviously, the prime viewing angle is one that suits that individual. Their height could be a factor, as well as the height of the ceiling in your car, therefore, adjustability is important in any overhead DVD player. You should look for one with up to 180° adjustability to please all scenarios.
UX The last thing anybody wants once they’ve invested in an overhead DVD player is the chore of trying to install it or use it with difficulties. You’re more than likely buying this for your kids, so it has to be simple and friendly to use. It should also be sturdy and easy to use, for similar reasons.
