There's a slew of these monitors out there and most of the headrest monitors are made by the same people. I have tried a crap load of them as back up monitors and to date as far as Headrest monitors go www.Pyleaudio.com has some pretty good ones. The main problem you run into is adapting the Power and video and mounting it on your rig, they don't always come with 1/4-20 screw holes.

Once you find the one you like, pick the one with the most mounting options and the highest contrast ratio then search it out on the internet because the 2-$300 range monitors can be found for half the price from wholesalers.

For the record, My 6" 4x3 Pyle High Res. TFT LCD headrest monitor has outdone alot of the other higher end monitors I have used. But for the price buy two because they aren't durable. and they will break or go down.

Best of luck
