The Sony Xplod is a lovely little gadget in its own rights. It was one of the first in car players and i can remember thinking it was so cool to have one in my dads car. It is reliable. Suprisingly, it doesnt skip or jump at all. The screen is pretty decent. Sometimes the sun outside can prevent you from seeing the screen clearly but we got hold of those shade things you can put on your windon.
Little did i know, the novelty of this amazing gadget would wear off SOO quickly! hehehe. These things are great for someone whos whole family travels, say weekly from Birmingham to London. However, for people who dont travel so much in cars this thing is quite a waste of money. I remember when i got mine, it cost a fortune. These days, they are much cheaper and probably much more durable and high quality and you can get dual screen players as well. One down side in this specific version is that the speaker volume is not great for many films. I ended up connecting it to either my headphones or to the car sound system.
However, for what it is and what it does, this is a great car toy. Well worth it if you do travel. You can also hook it up to a games console however i have not tried this yet. Anyway, overall a great product.
