build quality, realibility, etc...

A panasonic DVD player WILL produce a better picture than a pyle DVD player for example...

if you see PYLE of sh*ts in stores next to a pioneer or alpine you will see a huge difference. the online pictures mean nothing if thats what ur basing your thoughts off of. In my opinion, for mobile dvd, playstation 2 is the best way to go, you get games and dvd and cd...

hmm, how can i put it.

i guess it's like saying, would you take the same car who has an I4 engine with 150hp or would you take the V8 engine with 300hp engine? i mean they look the same right? (<--made up)

or like buying a computer, you could get the cheap *** Emachines which has a pentium 4 2.0ghz (if they even have one), or you could get the Sony or DEll with a pentium 4 2.0ghz, both of them iwth the "same" specs.

either way, you get my point. that's why brock is tellin ya to stay away from pyramid, pyle, boss..... they the low end, they are like in the bottom of the pile

To be honest I don't really agree with the guys here, as long as you are willing to accept the standard credo- "You get what you pay for". Cheap units will performly worse than better units, usually. I bought a fairly no-name auxillery in-dash DVD player for my wife's van and it works beautifully. Yeah some of the bells and whistles are missing, but it serves its purpose nicely. So get what you want and if you are happy with it, don't worry about it being a cheap no-name. As far as better picture goes, remember that this is being displayed on a very small screen, where basically anything looks good.

Im not saying that you cant find a good dvd player thats cheap, just not from these brands. There are plenty of good bargains out there, but the brands listed above are pure crap.
