Looks nice, except for that screen. I'm sure the price tag on this thing won't be cheap, so they could of at least made it an LED screen.

useless when in car dvds only have a 7" screen. You can have a 60mb file on mine thats 40 minutes long and it looks perfect.

That is so true. HD becomes evident (and desirable) as the screen size incrases. With a 7" display who can really tell the difference.
