Ripspeed DV720: Great value for money but probably best to spend that little ...
17 November 2013
Summary: I purchased a Ripspeed DV720 second hand and I was very pleased with the product overall although I believe better products are available. Firstly I liked the value for money even though I purchased this second hand, brand new the item is still very well priced. The functions are basic (compared to other in car DVD systems) but this only adds to the simplicity and ease-of-use.
Summary: When I bought my Golf GTi I was lucky enough to find one of these little poor souls hiding away in my boot! I couldn't believe it as I thought it looks like a cracking car audio system as it even had a remote. So I gave my friend Michelle a call and asked her to come over to help me out on a little project. On her arrival I showed her the Ripspeed DV720 and explained that I found it in my boot and that I wanted to give it to her.
Pros: Nice Design, Big Screen, Easy To Install, Quality Sound.
Cons: Its Touchscreen So You Will Need To Keep It Clean And Not Wear False Nails! lol
Summary: i had this DVD/car sterio for my birthday for my car and i have to say its GREAT! i had it installed by the shop and have never had a problem with it, it comes with a remote control so its just like using the DVD player at home. both picture and sound quality is brill, it definatly beats a standard car sterio. you can also hook up a sub woofer to it and extra screens to go on the back of the headrests.
Pros: very well priced and excelent quality
Cons: fitting, you may want to get it fitted by someone who knows what there doing
Summary: The best thing about the Ripspeed DV720 is definately the great price it can be bought for it can be bought online for just over £200 which is fantastic for a DVD player. The player looks really expensive as well with a nice finish and a DVD screen which folds away when not in use. I have to say that I found the player very difficult to install in my car and while i'm no car expert I have fitted a good few radios in my time.
Ripspeed DV720: Good value for money in car DVD player
15 May 2009
Summary: My friend has owned the Ripspeed DV720 for around nine months now, and aside from one problem with the unit, it is a very good in car DVD player especially considering the money. Typically this will be seen in Halfords for around £250 and when you look at it, it really does look like a well thought out stereo. It is black and when the screen is not up it has a blue lit screen which looks nice and is not too obtrusive.
Pros: Lots of features, looks good,great price
Cons: Sound quality isnt too good, could be dfficult to fit
Summary: A friend of mine purchased a Ripspeed DV720 head unit a few months back and he has been raving on about it ever since. Since his head gasket went on his vehicle, and rendering his car useless for a couple of months he persuaded me to borrow the Ripspeed ("head unit") so I could see how 'amazing' it really is.
Pros: Large screen, cheap, easy to install
Cons: Looks cheap and nasty, poor finish, no USB or SD card slot
