(see my previous review).
When I wrote my first review of the dansai 852 DVD player here, I was so impressed by this player; all the formats, the price, the hack for making it region free but most of all macrovision free and so on. My player broke down four months ago and the Swedish reseller (SIBA) say they can't find any spare parts... (Probably a lot of b-s!)
I'm still waiting for it.
I don't have any good advice for anyone on whether to buy one or not. The quality of this player obviously varies a lot. If you are lucky you get a very compatible, Macrovision-free player for a competitive price. On the other hand, if you are unlucky you will get all sorts of problems and a player that corresponds to what you payed.
My rating for "Value for money" is of course based on an assumption that the player works. The "Overall" rating assumes nothing.
