Poor quality


"When the DVD is playing, the picture is quite poor quality. The picture looks a bit fuzzy. Also, the DVD player needs a scart lead to connect to the TV, which isn't included and you have to buy it separately. I would not recommend this item. Even...

Not good value for money; Poor quality; Scart lead not included

I bought this as I put in a google search for multi-region player and it's among the first in the list. As the same model is being sold on Amazon as multi-region for £49.99, I chose this as the cheaper option only to find this is not multi-region at...

Good product but extra lead needed


Remember that the produce does not come with lead required. You will need another trip to buy it because it will not connect to your tv without it. You get the batteries for the remote control but weirdly not the lead to connect the TV to the DVD?

I can't say


I bought the very same DVD player as I did last time. Or so I thought. None of the leads fitted my television and the DVD player. I invested in two more scart leads (one was my fault) and it doesn't work. I showed my son in law (who used to be in the...

Very good value at an exceptional price


My previous DVD Player developed a fault which was not economic to repair and was replaced by a well known brand for 50% of the repair cost of the failed unit.
