This Dansai 852 DVD player is a superb price for what you get.
Sound sounds good on MP3 play pack, and DVD's look well clear (1st DVD player and pictures will prob. look better anyway since used videos).
The 1st one I brought from Tescos, was faulty (started flickering while playing back in PAL mode after 40 minutes), but for the price I just replaced… Read Full Review

The Dansai 852 is a great DVD player from Tesco certainly giving the Wharfedale a run for its money. I originally went to buy the Wharfedale M5 only to find that Tesco are no longer stocking them! Maybe a new player is on the horizon? Anyway, I didn't know much about the Dansai player so trawler the net and read some reviews. This site really convinced me that this could be a good buy and I must say I'm not disappointed! Not the most aesthetic player available, compared to Wharfedale and… Read Full Review

This Dansai 852 DVD PLAYER is Excellent! It offers all the things you require. Not only that, but the Price is the best! You can't go wrong! Only thing is that i don't know if you can make a copy of DVD to VHS. And also is it possible that you can connect extra speakers to the dvd player? Please, if any one knows about it can you please let me know! Thanks… Read Full Review

The Dansai 852 DVD player has exceptional picture quality and enough features for the under £100 price. Easy to set up and with region restrictions removed it's the dog's whatsits. Still some features I haven't tried yet, but the ones I have work great. A must for anyone who's looking for a cheap but good player that can handle any type of DVD/CD media… Read Full Review

The two jack phone sockets are too big for modern cd player earphones… Read Full Review

Been looking for a good cheap player for a while after using pc to play dvd's for the past 18 months
Very pleased with this Dansai 852 machine so far and would recommend it to anyone, it even comes in silver to fit in with modern systems.
"setup" on remote
on player "stop" then "prev" then "next"
this brings up hidden menu, now you can change regions and remove macrovision! Works a treat!… Read Full Review

I researched DVD players for ages, looking for one that would play lots of formats (VCD,SVCD, MP3 etc), and one that was also region free, so I was amazed when I saw the Dansai 852 in Tescos for only £99. I've had it now for two weeks, and really can't fault it. Get one while you can !
PS region hack is simple. Press 'setup' on remote, then 'stop', 'previous', 'next' on player to access hidden menu, where you have the option to make the player region free !! Simple… Read Full Review
