An interesting feature in the HDVD-9BG is the inclusion of a touchscreen display to grant you a more “hands-on” control. As it turned out, the touchscreen does its job quite well. No problems were encountered while using it, other than the ensuing finger prints of course. It is possible to operate all functions of the remote via the touchscreen except unfortunately, the DVD options. The remotes are quite good too and they pretty much allow you to tinker with enough options for personal customization of display and sound, should you be interested. Installation is as easy as it can be because running the wires through the seats is pretty much all you need to do apart from fixing the headrest. The inclusion of a 12V adapter is something that we expected but did not get in the box, but that is hardly an issue as you can pick one up for less than ten dollars if you want to avoid wiring it directly.
The two headrest DVD players are completely independent of each other (separate video/audio input/output) so it is possible for you to watch two different movies at the same time or listen to the FM on one while playing a movie on the other. Interference was never an issue throughout the time it was used, even when the wireless headphones were tried out. In fact, the quality on the headphones was equally impressive. It should be pointed out here that should you be experiencing poor performance, take the help of a professional as wrong or inadequate installation is often responsible for that. The DVD players are better than any that we have yet reviewed because not only are they absolutely quiet; they also remained surprisingly cool even after prolonged use. Add all of these positives to a product that also looks and feels premium and you have got the Power Acoustik HDVD-9BG headrest DVD players.
