Cheap 'n' very cheerful Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent value for money

DisadvantagesNo stand-by

"...surprised to see the word ALBA on the side and after questioning this; I was informed that the ALBA and BUSH machines were in fact identical. Not overly fussed about the manufacturer, I accepted this and was now in possession of an ALBA DVD165. The Look ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Okay, so this machine was never going to be as stunning looking as some of the high end players with there transparent perspex fronts, and strips of shiny aluminium, but for a machine ..."

The Alba 165 DVD - It's Cheap N Cheerful!

AdvantagesVery Cheap

DisadvantagesNot Multi Regional

"...in the Argos was an Alba 165 at £29.99. Appearance My first impression when I lifted it out of the box was very favourable, it was silver in colour and very slim line with a very modern appearance. The overall depth of the DVD Player is only a couple of inches but the front of player tapers to give the impression that it is actually much slimmer than that. The depth of the machine is about 10 inches. The front of the Player features a black ..." Read review

Alba DVD player - well worth the purchase

AdvantagesReliable, low price, light

DisadvantagesMay occasionally suffer very minor faults

"This is may be a standard, cheap DVD player, but it's one of the best of its kind. The main reason being that it functions as well as any top range DVD player, is amazingly lightweight (especially considering the size), looks fairly good design-wise, makes no noise when playing DVDs (it amazes me how many people have DVD players that make an absolute racket and yet they put up with it regardless), all at a very cheap price (if you look in the right ..."

Good for the price

Advantagesdvd playback, cd playback, kodak picture cd compatible, remote control, parental lock.

Disadvantagesno lcd display, doesn't play mp3's

"What do you look for in a dvd player? Well the main thing, can it play dvd's and the answer for this obviously is, yes. However there are also lots of other features Dvd players can achieve for example mp3, cd, photo cd, cd-r cd-rw playback and this can't do much of them. It can play cd's dvd's and kodac photo cd's, nothing else so dont even try. It comes with a remote which is good quality, a range of about 6 meters which unless you own a very large ..." Read review

Alba DVD165

AdvantagesGood For The Money

DisadvantagesDoesn't include many features

"...you may know the company Alba release many cheap eletronic equipment. This may be off putting to alot of people, but just because its cheap doesn't mean its not good to have. I have got this certain dvd player and think its definitly worth the money. I bought this for my parents and they use it occassionly for films. As long as plays the dvd's in good quality thats fine. You don't really need all the hi-tech qualities of running mp3 files, CD-RW, ..." Read review
