We were looking for a DVD player for our bedroom rather than carting the one from downstairs around depending on where we wanted to use it so we headed off to tesco. We spotted this Technika DVD player and chose it as it was only around £22.
For our £22 we received our DVD player a plain black DVD it was quiet slim and through simplicity looked rather stylish matching our TV. We didn't have a lot of room so this was the perfect fit for our limited room as it is not too big. As we started to set the DVD player up we realized that no SCART was provided so we had to dig one out from downstairs that was not being used. This was a bit annoying but for £22 can I not really moan. Included was a remote which needed batteries and a user manual that was very simple to read and told us how to take care and use the DVD player.
At the front of the DVD it has few buttons which again for me is perfect I'm not very good with anything techy. It has a simple on/off button play/pause open and closes just the buttons I need. Also a red light that shows if its off and a green if its on so it catches my eye and reminds me to turn it off.
Also on the left hand side at the front is the disk drive that you lay the DVD on to insert. On the back of the player again it maintains its simple just the Mains Cable, 1 SCART output and 2 Channel Audio Output for the RCA AV Cable. The DVD player is very quiet I have never noticed the noise of it in the background which for the price I paid I believe is good. It can play movie DVDS, audio CDs or photo discs on this player all with ease but again the manual is there if any help is needed.
The remote has a few functions repeat skip scene zoom etc but to be honest I never use these features so do not believe I should review what I don't know about. All I use is the open close play stop button and this does me just fine. What I can tell you is that this is a cheap no frills DVD player it works well does exactly what I need it too I have had it for just over a year now and so far had no problems. I would highly recommend this DVD player for anyone who simply wants to watch a movie.
