I paid just under £70 for it, and because it was Asda, got an automatic 3 year new for old/replacement no quibble warrenty! Now that alone is worth about £50 if not more! The reason for the purchase was to have a second player for another room, so price was the main driver.

The DVD player is in chrome and visually pleasing. It is remote controlled (which surprised me given the price) but still has all of the buttons discreetly positioned on the unit. Most other 'cheaper' models I have seen, tend to be big, bold and bulky - but not this one.

The unit came with all the cables etc. you need to set this up. Power, scart and audio cables as well as batteries for the remote control.

The DVD supports:
o CD music (auto start, random selection and pre-programmed favourites
o DVD (region 2 and 0 only)
o MP3 (on CDR and CDRW - otherwise same options as on CD)
o Kodak Picture CD (including JPG support - have your photos on the TV!)
o Supports MPEG 2 clips - which some digital cameras support

The units extended features include:
o Parental lock
o Shuffle
o 8x zoom
o Slow mo and fast forward (no sound whilst using this)
o Multiple angle support (for DVDs that use this facility)
o the usual, volume, menu and skip functions

The remote control is fairly chunky, so is not lost easily, and it comes with a comprehensive user guide that does take you through all of the units functions in a fairly straight forward and logical manner.

On the sound front, it is Dolby compliant and DTS ready - so it can be upgraded to support relatively painlessly for those who know what they are doing.

Finally, it does support 'older' technology by having a coaxial cable slot - but the cable itself is not supplied. It does support S video and componant video as well!

For all of its good points, strangely it does not support Video on CD (VCD or CDi). I have a few left over from the old Phillips machine and am still having to watch these films on the computer rather than on my TV. As it supports CD music and MP3 via CDR and CDRW, I really expected this to be there.

All in all, fantastic value for the money I paid for it. Well recommended

I liked this one too!

Never heard of them, but a 3 year guarantee makes it appealing!
