You might not have heard of a few of these companies so you’re probably not aware of the less-than-perfect devices they manufacture. Included in this article are a few of the worst Dual Screen Portable DVD Players that you can find given that title by various owners.
No one willingly pays money for a product that doesn’t work. But often times that happens when people purchase dual screen portable DVD players. With that being the case, it’s wise to check for user information in hopes of avoiding buying a defective product. Here I listed a few of the worst along with some alternatives from the same companies.
The Polaroid 8″ Dual Screen Portable DVD DPA-08055S with game controller is one of the worst portable DVD players you can buy. There are problems with skipping, headrests, and the device simply not working at all. It’ll skip and restart a movie with the slightest bump or vibration you have in your vehicle. You won’t get past the opening credits throughout the duration of your trip.

With the headrests positive and negative reviewers agree this is one of the most difficult portable DVD players to fasten onto your seat. One reviewer who rated positively said you had to “use your imagination” to fit the headrest on properly. I’d rather imagine myself not taking hours figuring out how to put a DVD player in my car. Now, to say that there are positive reviews means that maybe this player isn’t bad after all. But when you take into account that the “Product Description” page on Amazon has a disclaimer warning customers to review the return policy before purchase. That’s not a good sign. That means too many defective parts being sent out, and that doesn’t bode well for Polaroid. Luckily, they have a higher rated portable DVD player in the DPA-07051 7. If you search for this portable DVD player in Google Shopping you’ll see the list of positive ratings.
