DVD Players etc

I'm thinking about sticking a DVD player in the boat to add a bit of bling. There's quite a few offerings around now sub 200 quid. There seem to be 3 types available.
1) Integrated in-Dash dvd with flip out screen
2) Doubled up in-Dash dvd with flip out screen & FM radio
3) In Dash DVD with seperate monitor(s)

Has anyone got any of these? What are they like?
Cheers
M

I guess I'm torn between something like this:

or this with external monitors:

You're correct, this is a problem I need to consider.

I guess if pushed, 2 would be enough.

I don't really need the "in dash" monitor if it has 2 external ones.
