i bought the alpine iva d300 its a 7 inch motorized touch screen.
Plays dvds....dvdmp3 discs...really couldnt ask for more. Plus it has a navigation addon that you have to buy seperately.
You can pick the screen up for like 1200 if you got a hookup

ive heard the new eclipse is decent. Never seen one in person or used one though.
Id go with the alpine. You know its a reputable name that most likely wouldnt fail.

My choice would be with the alpine as well. I've used and played with the Clarion, Pioneer, and a couple of off brands. Alpine seems to preform and last the best, while also being the easiest to use.

I bought my last one Pioneer AVH-6500 dvd a while ago off ebay. Made sure it was from a private seller and everything looked legit, asked him for some other pictures than the ones he had posted, he was able to provide those and some other information, tied with good feedback the transaction went very smoothly.

I'm curious about that Kenwood one first mentioned too. Its the DDX-7015 I think. I've seen a pic somewhere around here of it sitting in the supra, and it looks slick and flush. But I haven't seen a pic with it on, or anything about its usability. Anyone know?

I just happen to own the Kenwood 7015 double din unit.I love it.Picture quality is awesome and its easy to use.Furthermore it basically fits directly into the car with zero mods using the factory radio brackets.If you decide to get one I'm sure you will be happy with it.Hope this helps.

I've got the Kenwood Excelon in-dash DVD player (the non-flip screen version). It works very well with the Supra.

Thats great! Do any of you all happen to have pics that you could post up, and/or let me know what a good "deal" for getting one would be? Also, do you have, or is there, a handbrake bypass out there that works for it?
Thanks.

The handbrake is just a switch that contains a negative voltage when pulled up. Wire the handbrake swithch to the frame of the car.

If you buy off of ebay, make sure that the seller has a lot of "seller" feedback (not just buyer feedback). And it is always good to get insurance, so if anything happens, or even if it's DOA, you have at least one way to get your money back. (a lot of private seller don't offer refunds).

Thanks for the offer but I'm trying to pinch my pennies right now. I dumped $5,000 into Budwiser stock a few days ago hoping its going to make me a few bucks. I don't think spending $1200 on that Kenwood would be the best financial decision right now. It would be nice to have but its not really a necessity.

I will definatly keep u in mind though

To tell you the truth, having a DVD player in the supe isn't too beneficial unless you have excess money lying around + need a new headunit. I can only remember one time where i've actually watched a movie or played xbox.
