        Just bought this yesterday, and it is smart. Maybe a little clunky when for example choosing next chapter or from play to ff. But overall for the cost its great. PLUS its multi region and also covers a fair bit of PC software, jpeg, mpeg and such, anyway you know that, its in the description, but had to re-inforce those points. What you don't know about it, that will make your jaws drop....in Currys it's £38... There you have it, a great excuse for getting a spare, cheap, good DVD player for the bedroom. With a years warranty. No I have no association with either the DVD or Currys, just a very happy customer. Sorry dooyoo, but that's got to be a tough price to beat. oh, one other thing I plugged mine in on scart, and when I switch it on it remains on, say bbc1 channel but shows the welcome screen, but continues with the sound of the channel I am on. You have to turn the tv to the correct channel for a proper picture. No great problem, because it remains switched off until I need it, and then choose the AV channel when I turn it on. Hope it has a decent lifespan.

          The unit is very small and plays everything ive tried, i like it a lot. the unit is very basic looking, with just the usual power on/off, open/close, play and stop but the machine has all the features you want for playing dvd, music, mp3, video cd, jpeg/gif and kodak picture disks, and of course the all important multi region ability. On the back you have digital audio-coaxal output, analog audio output L/R, s-video output and a 21-pin scart terminal output, the s-video output quality isn't that good, but the scart works a treat, the phono out put is good, and sound quality through a surround system is of a very high standard. The remote is small, and fits in the hand nicely and consists of power Number keys Shuffle Program Vocal Assist Resume Slow Step Setup Audio Menu Direction Keys Enter/Play Pause Skip Forward/Back Open/Close Volume Up/Down Repeat A-B RPT Mute Goto Clear Display PCB Off Zoom P/N Angle Sub-T Tittle Stop Forward Scan Reverse Scan I only Have one disappointment with the machine, when you play music/mp3 disks, the compression is so bad(or good) that the sound drops and peaks a lot, i haven't found a way to adjust this, which is my only niggle, but all in all a good machine for a great price. Amendment Dixons are now selling this machine for £69.99, £4.99 more than i paid, but it is still a great deal.
