Default Xenor--Heard Of This?

Hi guys,

I ran a search for a brand of car DVD players and visor video screens called Xenor.

A freiend fitterd one set up in his new Marina.Have any of you heard of this brand?

The pic clarity is good,but am not too happy with the player's finish.

Views maangta hai !!!!

I am pretty sure you mean Xenos. Xenos is marketed by pricol in India. Decent low budget stuff.

BTW , which are the known best brands of video screens for ICE?(I have heard of Necvox and a few other Chinese TFTs but am not too sure about their performance/reliability).

This screen(installed in place of the co-driver's sun visor) in my friend's Marina looks a neat fit but I believe the co-driver would have hell if the screen is open(unless he puts the seat into reclination mode).

As OE in Scorp?? I don't know about the recent CRDes but the one that I have a 2004 GLx came fitted with Kenwood KRC-288. And I haven't heard the name XENOS...

The Scorpios were coming with the Nippon Head unit in most cars I saw in bangalore, maybe the choice of players is a regional pricing thing for the company. The issue with the Nippon heads were they did not have pre amps outs.

obviously,I would not park my money in a product with low pic. quality.What I was keen to know was how good Necvox is and how does it measure up to other brands of screens(and what are these brands?)

hey,
Xenos is a new brand and my friend has used it ,although its picture quality is good it has a very flimsy body, it although comes with three years warrenty ,i have see it a lot in tourist vehicles....if that is the only one that fits in your budget I would say go for it......

Cheers.
