Introduction Last year I upgraded the DVD players I have at home and replaced them with BluRay players, I watch a lot of films and have HD TV's at home so it made sense to be upto date with technology and be able to see films and watch TV series Box Sets in High Definition. The only problem with upgrading what I had was what to do with my DVD players as they were still in fine working order despite their age and not wanting to throw them away I decided that they should be put to use in my caravan. The subject of this review, the Alba DVD108 is one of two I have in my bedroom (I have 2 DVD players as this one is multi-regional and allows me watch films that ... Read the complete review

I've owned this DVD player since Christmas 2002 and its still going strong nearly 8 years later. You can't fault that kind of durability and longevity! I don't know how much it cost originally as it was a gift but unless the price was astronomically high this DVD player has been great value for money and has had a great deal of use. You can get one on ebay for pennies these days, and if you need a decent DVD player but are utterly broke you could do a lot worse. Its a very basic model, but has all the functions you need to enjoy your DVDs. There are very basic controls (play, stop, skip forward, skip back, eject) on the DVD player itself but ...

As I?m sure many of you now know, I bought my first house almost two years ago and whilst we slowly went about decorating each room, money was tight. Having bought a new 29inch wide-screen TV I was hoping I?d get a bit of money for my Birthday in November to put aside for a DVD player in the January sales. As it turned out I got even luckier and my Brother bought me one as a joint Birthday and Christmas present ? result or what!? Personally I wanted one as I knew that it was the way forward and I was missing out on all the DVD extras that didn?t appear on video. The one that he bought me was the Alba DVD 108 player, which on first impressions looked stylish in ... Read the complete review

I've never been one to hire videotapes. Perhaps it's my Scotch ancestry, but I always figured that films would come round on TV before long and could then be taped, the practical upshot of which is that my VCR watched more TV than I did, and I have a backlog of stuff that may get watched someday. Or perhaps not, now that we have a DVD player and can properly appreciate the difference in picture quality. I'll still use the VCR for time-shifting and compiling Futurama tapes, but for films, I'm now quite happy to pay the hire charge and enjoy the wonderful picture and sound quality. I might even buy the odd DVD, although there aren't that many films that Read the complete review

Having travelled along to Argos with my reservation number for the Alba DVD 108, I was told at the till that this dvd player would not play VCD's and that I may recieve a different model to the one shown in the catalogue. Thinking that this rarely happens I promptly paid for it and picked it up. The actual model I was given was the slightly larger but nicer looking Alba DVD 109. I got it home, connected it to the tv by scart and hi-fi by phono and started to play. It's a very simple machine to operate with a short booklet of instructions that would only take the slowest of readers 5 minutes to get through. The picture quality was great and ...
