We all know about DVD players, with many of us owning one, - some owning more than one – but we all know that they all do the basic same thing. And that is to play DVDs or, in some cases, CDs.
This is one of those DVD's that is as basic as the rest, having nothing special, no recording features, no live pause or rewind, just a basic player that is not only simple to use but comes at a simple price.
It's a good size, being about 425mm wide, 205mm deep and just over 40mm in height, weighing in at a lightweight 1 ¾ kg so that it won't break the TV stand it's on.
On the front you've got the usual things. The power button, the disc tray itself. A small display that gives you the information that you need to know and you've basic control buttons, play, stop and eject.
The rest of the controls are on the remote itself, which is self explanatory, and needs two AAA batteries to get it going.
On the back of the unit there is the usual connection ports, the aerial Jack and the scart socket.
As I said, the display is a simple one, giving you the basic information about the disc playing, such as time played and the sort of DVD/CD inserted.
It can play all DVD and CD formats which means that there's less chance of the disc being rejected, which we all know is annoying.
I've used this for a while and it has never let me down, accepting all discs I've shoved into it without spluttering one bit. It's one of those players that make the more expensive ones look way over priced
As for power consumption, it take about 8watts per hour when use and about 8 watts a month on stand-by.
I have had this one for as long as I can remember, I can't remember how much I paid for it but a search tells me that it is going for about £20 - £25, or less in some places.
