I'm thinking about putting a dvd player in my car but I'm not a huge fan of the motorized screens. I was thinking about getting a dvd/cd head unit and installing a monitor in the dash with fiberglass.

What are the pros and cons to using seperate components?

Who makes that style?

The websites say that both the Alpine IVA-w200 and the Pioneer AVH-P6800DVD have motorized screens. Does that mean they just adjust the angle but stay exposed when turned off, or do they retract into the cage?

kenwood and eclipse also make them, and i think by motorized it means it motorizes down so you can put cds in

why not just buy an indash dvd player? id prefer one of those over a screen and itd be much easier to install
