Rear DVD screens in L405

Our daughter is autistic and she loves her DVD's Very Happy

We're very close to pressing "go" on a new L405 and can't make up our minds about these:

Part of me says that it would be nice to have a bigger picture and part of me says that they look really brash and are going to get knocked about and broken.

Does anyone have any experience of them Vs the sensible head restraint mounted versions?

Wouldn't bother myself, if a third was to look inside it's easy picking, can get knocked as you say get standard head rest version they are more discreet with tinted windows unnoticable

Thanks for the input Lukie Thumbs Up

When daughter's had an iPad on a holder on the back of the seat I've also been concerned about the prospect of a face full of broken glass in the event of a serious accident. I wonder if these would be no better?

So far that's one "no". Does anyone else have any experience of them? I've never even seen them in real life.

Depends what you want / how old daughter is / whether you need to control from the front etc.

I'd be more inclined to go with iPads than those - they look a bit old already - thick body and wide bezel around the screen - in a couple of years they will devalue the car IMHO

That looks like a quality item, does it hold the iPad firmly?

Yup, rock solid, swivel joints at either end so can be close to the rear or the seat or fully extended Thumbs Up

Never had rear screens before and always added DVD players for holidays etc then as the kids have grown up moved to iPads. Having now got rear screens the kids love them and rate them better than iPads. Why? They are easier to see and watch in daylight with no glare. They also like the option of being able to take a DVD from the cupboard and not realy on dad spending hours on trying to find the right software to encode to the iPad. In addition have now just bought the leads to connect an iPad to the screens. Best of all worlds as they can now watch dvds as well as offline access to Netflix iPlayer etc. Via an iPad. That said we all agree we wouldn't spend money on them unless already in the car. 2013 L405 AB 4.4SDV8 Luxor/Ivory, 2007 Vogue TDV8 Epson Green/Sand, 2008 Vogue TDV8 Buckingham Blue/Sand, 2003 Vogue 4.4 LPG Epsom Green/Sage, 1998 Vogue SE 4.6 LPG Epsom Green/Cream

Interesting.

We've just done a 250+ mile journey in the Disco, with a series of Rose's DVD in the player; Rose doesn't use the headphones (we simply run it through the speakers), so Rose watches the film and Kathy and I get to listen to the soundtrack in the front. It works really well Thumbs Up
