    Experience with XO Vision or PYLE screens?

    I'm using a Lilli 629 for my primary screen, but I'm going to have two secondary screens mounted in headrests for video watching only. I've found some from XO Vision and some from PYLE that are reasonably priced (less than $100). Anyone have any experience with either of these (either the specific units, or just the brand in general)?

    XO Vision 5.8" standard
    PYLE 7" wide

    Thanks!

    I used an xo vision once, as it was the only small lcd with mirror image function that I could find, used it for a heads up display... intially I thought it would be crap, but I was surprised to see it wasn't bad at all really, I'd choose that over pyle any day

    Thanks for the info.

    Also, just an update... I have "Standard" next to the XO Vision 5.8"... that's not correct. It is a 16:9 wide screen. Kinda small, thinking I want the 7". Though ANTOnline doesn't carry them (don't care -- I just found them while googling), I see XO Vision does make bigger headrest screens:

    OK, found one, only $85, so that seems reasonable for a good 7"...

    now adays, even the cheapest lcd's are as good as the better lcd's from just a few years ago... it's impressive what you can get now adays for little money, this goes for most electronics really...

    Cool, sounds like either brand is relatively safe. Thanks both. I'll probably just go with whatever I can find with the best features, etc. It's hard to get lots of detailed specs on both these units. Neither company's web site offers much... say for example, exact physical dimensions. You'd think that'd be something obvious to tell people, but it's not even in the PDF "user manual" (all of two pages) posted on the PYLE web site.

    Maybe I can find a vendor that will send me that info.

    Anyway, thanks again to both of you for your insight.
