DVD player for people with no shame
Member Name: caustin10
Advantages: cheap, easy to setup and use
Disadvantages: looks cheap
Ever heard of Aitro? ...me neither but when the previous dvd player broke down this was the cheapest alternative in Tesco's. £14.99 bought this tiny dvd player. It is around 5 inches by 4 by 1 and has a cheap plastic feel to it but for that money who am I to complain?
Not a lot to write about here. It comes with a flimsy remote control which does all the basic functions, one cable does power and the other goes to your scart socket on the tv. You can play dvd's or mp3 cd's and ummm....well that's it
This was very simple. Plug in the power, connect it to the scart socket on your tv, turn it on and away you go....
Well it is rather basic so, as you would expect, the picture quality is not quite as good as more expensive models but it's still pretty good. For some confusing reason the light on the front comes on to show it's off and goes off to show it's on. The things that really get my goat though are the buttons on the front. You have one for power, one for play/pause and one to skip forward. All the buttons are black and the signs to show what they do are tiny notches of the same colour. It's near enough impossible to see these markings so I have been annoyed many many times when I go to press skip and end up turning the whole thing off grrrr
It's easy to pick holes in this product but for £14.99 I can't really complain. It does all the basic functions that I need it for, is extremely easy to setup and use and so far has given me no problems. The small size is really handy too - it's very easy to hide if you don't want guests to see how cheap it looks!! :-)
Summary: budget dvd player hits all the right buttons....well kind of
