    in car dvd player or other options?

    Over the years, I have bought two dual screen in car dvd players for my children's use on long journeys. Both from argos, both the dearer end of their selection. They didn't last long. Do I have to just buy another one which probably wont last or are there other options. I thought maybe I...
