Written on: 24/02/2002 by Dave. (1 review written)

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...”

Written on: 23/02/2002 by Paul Attfield. (1 review written)

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!

Written on: 24/02/2002

To make copies on to VHS you need to disable "macrovision" in the factory set up menu: No disc in player,setup,stop,previous,next. This will bring the factory menu for changing regions and disaling macrovision copy protection. You cannot connect speakers directly to this model but you can connect an amplifier with speakers attatched or any form of hi-fi stack with a "line" or "aux" input for audio playback.

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

Those sockets on the front are for the microphones you use when you are playing Karaoke VCDs!!!!!We dont have the TESCO
<br>version,we have the Decca DDV2110 from Powerhouse which is the same.The sockets are marked MIC and the usage is in the instructions. Also the carton lists this function!

Written on: 08/02/2002

Very poor. What does this guy expect for £99?
<br>
<br>- It plays all discs from all regions of all types (DVD, VCD, SVCD, CDV etc)
<br>- No macrovision
<br>- Has Dual Scart and optical output
<br>
<br>Ok so it sounds like a microwave and the remotes a bit cheap, but buy a one for all then that costs £10!

I guess this is your first DVD player guys!!!
<br>The average sound on DVDs is supposed to be lower. This is so the loud parts will be louder (you will have your tv volume higher). Because there is no hiss on DVDs they can do this. All DVD players are the same.

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.
Hack:
"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

Written on: 26/01/2002 by andy. (1 review written)

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
