We all have a DVD player of some kind, either built in to the television itself or plugged up to a television via what is called a SCART socket. And there are many many of these DVD players out there, some that cost more than factory workers weekly wage, with others being more affordable.
And this one is in the cheaper range of player. This one is about the same size as other players, being about 230mmm wide, 210mm deep and no more than 50mmm deep, weighing in at just over a kilo.
On the front there is the DVD slot, which the tray comes out of, this is on the left as you look at it. On the right there's three buttons, open, play/pause and power, with a small screen above it.
It has one single SCART socket on the rear.
It supports most DVDs, such as DVD-R/RW+ and -, CD, CD-R/RW, JPEG, MPEG4 and even Xvid.
There are more downsides than upsides. With the main downside being that this is one loud machine, meaning that you have to turn up the volume in order to listen to the hear what's being said. Although if Janet Street Porters on then this groaning sound as the disc turns sounds better then her....
Another of the downsides is that, after a few months of using this, it seemed to grow a mind of its own, turning itself off during a DVD, which spoils the viewing. Then there's the fact that this would somehow jump through sections of a DVD, both backwards and forwards, which is another way that spoils viewing.
As I said, this is in the cheaper bin of players and has nothing special in it, so there's no built in freeview or ability to play your blu-ray DVDs in it expecting the same quality.
Although it does come with a remote control that is like any other controls, the usual button and is easy to understand. This remote runs off 2AAA batteries and once in, they last almost a lifetime.
The price of this player is about ten quid... I told you it is in the cheaper pile.
To be blunt I found this player to be too noisy and disrupt my DVD viewing pleasures, and with that it was way over priced...
