Alba DVD DS-5711
Advantages: Fantastic basic player, no frills, cheap price without the cheap quality
Disadvantages: Not the player if you prefer lots of buttons and menus
I bought this dvd player for my parents as a Christmas present for them to play all their dvds on that they always get each year. It is a reasonably priced unit and does the job without any fuss. It is easy to set up, the instruction manual is very clear to understand and there isnt a complicated setup procedure so anyone could set this up. It is a good cheap little DVD player. The unit is fairly well designed and although it is slightly larger than some of the more up-market players it is still quite compact.
The picture quality is very crisp as is the sound which is dolby digital. I have never found that the more expensive produce better picture quality, I find this is down to the tv you are using it with.
It will only play regular DVDs so no Blu-ray,but this isnt a problem for my parents as they have many dvds they have accumulated and with the increasing frequency of evenings with nothing on the box, it does its job. The player comes with a remote control which is simple and easy to use. Some players can be noisy but this one is quiet when turned on and even with the tv muted it is difficult to notice any noise.
The player comes with the remote, manual and the necessary cable to connect it to the tv. Overall, this is a perfectly capable no thrills dvd player that will do a job without any fuss.
Summary: An excellent choice. Does its job and is simple to operate and well priced.
