I've had my Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD player for about 1 1/2 years now and I recently updated the firmware with brill results... The mp3 disks I did now show in a "windows" style folder tree and you can fast forward mp3's too now!! also the picture quality and sound seem to have improved since the firmware upgrade.. It also had a great write up in "What DVD" last year... very happy with mine… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2003 by jherbert (1 review written)

I bought this Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD player because nothing in the same price-range offered the same range of audio outputs on the back. Having got it for a bargain price I was anticipating it may not offer the highest quality but have been very impressed. The menus are not very intuitive and nor is the remote control, both take some time to get familiar with.

The picture quality is excellent.

While the number of different audio outputs on the back is impressive, the quality of the sound is… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2003 by Bonzo Banana. (1 review written)

I had one of these some time ago and it was a truly excellent player. Loved it. It wasn't noisy, was feature packed and basically did everything I wanted. Then an updated firmware became available and I went for it and put it on a cdrw and upgraded the player. Many of the features of the new firmware were great but there were a few issues that meant I wanted to go back down to the earlier firmware. It wouldn't let me. Anyway I complained to Cyberhome and they got Richer Sounds to replace my… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2003 by cakka. (1 review written)

This machine played everthing i had to throw at it, and since the firmware update its even better.
when people say its good for the money, it makes me cringe.
You think that you are bying a budget player, when what you are buying is a dam good dvd player and it top's alot of the leading makes.
The cyberhome ad-l 528 is bye far one player that deserves a try, plus it uses a pc dvd drive so its even better if it goes wrong in the future(but it probably wont).
I would give this player 10/10 if i… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2003 by jon. (1 review written)

You can pick the Cyberhome AD-L 528 up for under 100 pounds and it had some good reviews in What Hifi but ultimately it is disappointing. Some discs do not play smoothly on it, eg my Monsters Inc disc has subtitles permanently on, which does not happen on my PC, and there are major glitches in other films such as memento. The player is noisy so I don't bother using it for music, the volume is too low, the remote is awkward and unresponsive, the player is chunky and not great to look at. I am… Read Full Review

i think you should either get a decent hifi or get your hearing tested, this player is a superb unit.
<br>if your's is doing what you claim then get an exchange,
<br>it might have a fault.
<br>i have mine hooked up to a dolby digital amp and it sounds superb.
<br>so as for your review. (its pants)

Last weekend I bought the Cyberhome AD-L 528 to coincide with the arrival of my new philips tellie (21"). I have to say i'm happy with the combination. If you're like me (waiting 'til SACD players get cheaper and for more SACD material to come out), but also want to watch dvd's (used to hook up my pc to the tellie) pick this one. Multi-region and good sound (provided you use your amp to deal with the decoding). Remote is bit funny but I rarely use it - i just start the movie and just watch the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/09/2002 by Andy Wood. (1 review written)

Just purchased one of these Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD players from Richer Sounds in Stoke. I was a little apprehensive about reports of it being a bit noisy, but decided to give it a try.

Maybe I am just lucky, but I cannot hear any noise out of it whilst playing a disk (even with the TV sound turned off).

It plays my VCD's and MP3 Disks perfectly, its also easy to switch between MP3 albums on the same CD by turning by pressing the "display" button and selecting the appropriate option - you dont… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/09/2002 by JimmyCa. (1 review written)

I got the Cyberhome AD-L 528 dvd player as a replacement for a faulty acoustic solutions dvd421. Richersounds replaced it with no problem as they had no more acoustic dvd players. I was a little apprehensive as it was much larger than the acoustic one and thought i might have been a little cheated.

But when i got home i was struck by how good the silver model looked, and when connected up it was easy to set it to region free. When i started playing the quality and sound was excellent (even… Read Full Review

“Got my Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD player from Richer...”

Written on: 29/08/2002 by Rawshark. (1 review written)

Got my Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD player from Richer Sounds for a staggeringly low £99.95! For this I've got a multi-region player which will play all my SVCDs and also the built-in Dolby Digital decoder works a treat with my nice Sony (none Dolby Digital) amp.

Read some reviews saying the picture quality wasn't up to scratch - maybe I am ignorant of how good a picture should be but on my Sony WEGA it's perfect!

I can't see any reason to pay any more than £100 for a DVD player after seeing what… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/06/2003

I like this review, it's nice to hear that someone else sees the good points of the ad-l 528.
<br>The picture is good, people who complain about it are probably watching it on a 14'' portable telly.
<br>If you buy a dvd player for a lot of money then you should remember that your telly also should cost about a £1,000). It's no good buying a Sony for £300 and watching it on a cheap telly.
<br>I have got a panasonic quintrix 28'' wide screen, and the picture is excellent. Also, what do people mean the sound is tinny on the mp3 side, mine isn't. Perhaps the gramophone they use to pipe the music through is getting a bit old now.
<br>Anyway, I like this review very much and I will give it 10/10.

Ok, the Cyberhome AD-L 528 is not the best DVD player, but it has a pile of features and so far it works well. Perhaps I'm just lucky and got a good one but I'm surprised at the bad reviews. It's supports Dolby pro-logic and S-Video. it's easy to set up for 'all region'. For a novice, I think it's OK… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2002 by Dan. (1 review written)

Overall, I'm impressed with this Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD player for the money. For around a hundred quid you get a lot of DVD player, most of which is of good quality. I can't fault the picture or sound quality, it's easily capable of performing as well as players twice its price, and even on some of those you don't find analogue 5.1 audio output.

The bad points - I wouldn't bother using the headphones sockets, extremely poor quality. Front panel is a bit plasticy. Unusually, the audio L/R… Read Full Review

I have had two of these Cyberhome AD-L 528 DVD players. The first had a habit of stopping during play of DVD's and the only way to continue was to power off, then on, then return to the same chapter and timeslot. The second would not allow the RGB setting to be used - the TV went blank (I was using SCART). All in all a poor performance...I've changed manufacturers now… Read Full Review

I have had no problems at all with my AD-L 528.
<br>100% reliability and it plays everything I ask it to play.
<br>It is worth reading the manual of course, which clearly explains (on p17) that the menu for MP3's can be accessed by pressing the 'program' button while an MP3 disc is being played. I tried it - it worked!

Written on: 14/05/2002 by Wez. (1 review written)

The Cyberhome AD-L 528 is my first DVD player so i can't really compare it with anything, but for £100 it was well worth the money. It plays whatever vcd/svcd/dvd i thrown in it and the quality is fantastic for such a low priced machine.
I also use the machine as an audio & mp3 player frequently and it's a breeze to use, with a crisp, punchy sound.
Yes it's bulky, yes it's ugly, but if you want functionality and quality without paying for a brand name, this is the player to go for… Read Full Review

Well, I have already a great panasonic player in the living room, the 528, I put into my sleeping-room, to watch some films before sleeping (i am a video junkie... :))
Of course, the quality was not as good as the panasonic's ... but hey, this one is abot 250 Euro cheaper...
