ProCheap and Function Packed

ConsNone As Yet

In order to satisfy my technological needs and not having had a product to review in this genre for nearly 6 months now I thought I had better purchase something…well that’s one of the excuses anyway. With an impending move ahead of me back to my hometown Norwich from Leeds, I decided to leave my...

ProMutli Region Multi Disc Multi Cheap

ConsFisher Price Power Button

After buying a 200 pounds Yamaha natural sound 5.1 Av Reciever and 100 pounds on speakers and some more money on cables I was left with very little left and decided to buy a cheap DVD player to act as a stand in CD/DVD player until I had a few hundred saved up. The Yakumo was the obvious choice...

I have used lots of cheap electronics in the past, they usually do work but they look cheap and hardly have any features - this however is different. Not only does it do everything it's supposed to do perfectly (I've played Region 1 and 2 DVDs on it, Audio CDs and CD-Rs, MP3's and PhotoCDs) it...

“YAKUMO XL2”

published 06/01/2005

ProSmall, compact,lots of features

ConsNONE

I saw this advertised for just under £35.00 with free post & packing and read the reviews, and couldn't believe that you could get a multi-region dvd player for this price that would be quality. How wrong could I be? I thought I would buy it anyway, and I'm glad I did because I am so impressed...

ProHighly affordable Multi-Region DVD Player

ConsBulky looking remote control

I recently purchased a region 1 DVD from America but was unable to play it on my JVC player as it was region 2. After many hours of trawling the net looking for access codes I eventually decided it was a lot less hassle to buy a multiregion player-another £150 I thought. How wrong could I be? For...

ConsHaven't found any yet

I had been searching for some months online to find a good reasonable price for this DVD player. I had read many excellent reviews about it so I knew I had to buy it. I managed to buy it on ebay (brand new) from someone who chose not even to open the box for an incredible £20. With postage it...
