DVD is the film format of the future and being a film fanatic I decided to purchase the Proline DVD 1000 because I had read several magazine reviews that said it was great value for money. This is very true since it is one of the cheapest players out there at only £159. It is available in Comet and Woolworths but I am sure it could be purchased elsewhere. It is worth the money and I shall explain why later in the review. Firstly I feel I should explain a little about the DVD format for those readers who don’t really know much about it. DVD is a digital format unlike videotapes, which are analogue. This means that you can watch it an infinite amount of ... Read the complete review

UPDATED 25th NOVEMBER I have just encountered a problem with the Proline 1000 - it does NOT play the second Gladiator disk at all! This also appears to be causing problems with the Wharfdale 750 and earlier Grundig models - these machines share the Proline's chip. At the moment I can find no further information on this but have compared notes with several people on dvd forums who are also experiencing the same problem. I shall update this opinion further just as soon as I know more.

Choosing a DVD player is as simple or hard as you want to make it. Either you can go for the price and availability, or you can get one to cater for your individual needs; i.e., whether you want to be able to play discs from other countries (a non-region or multi-region player), or whether you want to have different camera angles or zoom facilities, etc. When my husband said that we couldn't live without a DVD player in the house, my first thoughts were a) Why do we need one? b) Can we afford one? He convinced me that we could afford it and that I would wonder what I had ever done without one. So, we consulted various Consumer reviews and catalogues from ... Read the complete review

About a year ago, after earning my first ever wage packet from work and wanting to spend it as soon as possible, I was looking around on the ‘net at various things I could buy. I thought about acquiring a Mini-Disc player, although they seemed a bit too expensive, and I also dabbled with the idea of a new VCR (my current one makes a noise not unlike that of an exploding hedgehog every time you try and insert a tape) but in the end I decided on a DVD player. DVD (Digital Versatile Disc, like a CD, but only with more data on it and used for watching films, and for playing games, not listening to music (yet!)) has grown massively over the past 2 years ...
