In-car dvd player?

Can anyone recommend an in-car dvd system? My MIL has offered to buy the kids one between them for Christmas. I think this is a great idea, as we always holiday in this country and car journeys are sooooooooo long with 3 kids in the car. I am looking at a maximum of £150 and guessing that I'd be better off with two screens.
Any ideas?

Will check what make ours is as it is out in the garage. One thing to watch is that if you have other region disc (Region 2 = Europe) then you will need a model that is hackable.
As I buy most of our dvd's from USA this was a requirement for us.
I think they are a great thing to have for long journies. The in-car dvd was well used on road trips to DLP

I have a Centurion one with twin screens. I got mine from Argos a few years back for about £170. They have come down a fair bit over the years.

Mine can play multi region dvds & that was without using a code to hack it.

I don't use mine as much but when we take my niece & nephew out we do

Thanks. I was looking at one on play.com for £122.99

It looks OK, but I don't know anything about gadgets.
