Good player

 

A great little space saving player. Much cheaper at argos than anywhere else. Plays your dvd's really well. Easy to set up. You can use the cable supplied, (which is a 3 connections component lead) but even better if you but an hdmi cable to use with...

Great little machine

 

My TV doesn't have any scart sockets so this DVD player is ideal. Doesn't take up much room and works really well.

This DVD Player is the best 'a round'

 

This little round DVD Player has to be just about the best one around. For connectivity it is unrivalled and it plays every format going.
