    Flip Out DVD Player broke - now what?

    Well I have a Jensen Flip Out DVD and I watch many movies in my car. It finally broke, it wont load the disc and I understand this is because Jensen is a cheap brand.

    So now I need to replace it but don't want to spend $400 for some insane unit.

    Any suggestions? Valor seems to have nice features and price.

    Do I trust the online stereo shops? beware of B Stock? Al & Ed's is too expensive.

    Thanks!

    Spend the money on a quality brand or keep replacing those cheap indash units when they crap out.

    I've had good luck with Jensen DVD players particularly for the money I put into them. FYI you can send it back to them and they'll fix it up for 130ish.

    Really not like the "good" name brands do 5.1 surround anyway and IMO none of them last that much longer to be worth the premium price.
