Asda SP DVDTL01
Advantages: Small, Compact, Cheap, Multi region, Good quality
Disadvantages: No Scart lead supplied
I bought this DVD player once the digital switchover began. There is no point in me buying a whole new TV just for the bedroom that would be used a couple of hours a week so decided to just get a DVD player for when movies in bed was needed.
My last combo DVD / VCR player had recently died so I wanted one in a hurry without having to trawl through websites to find one. I popped into Asda and saw this one there for £17.
It's not fancy but it does the job!
The small size means it can sit on top of my TV unit without having to balance the TV on top of it (which wouldn't work anyway as it is top loading)
Setting up was very easy just plug it in and go. Although it is best to be aware that there was no scart lead supplied with it and this is essential to connect it to the TV. This was not obvious from the packaging but thankfully we had a spare one lying about.
To be honest I wasn't expecting much for £17 but was genuinely surprised by this wee gem. It plays the DVDs at a high quality, it can play multi region DVDs, it's compact and was easy to set up.
The remote that it comes with has my favourite feature of the ability to mute it with the DVD remote, no need to go fumbling around for the TV remote in the middle of a movie if needed.
Summary: Who needs expensive and fancy when this is just as good
