“I paid 120 GBP for this Technika dvd512 DVD player...”

Written on: 11/09/2002 by James Betts. (1 review written)

I paid 120 GBP for this Technika dvd512 DVD player having read the reviews on this site. I wanted a budget player which could play just about anything I through at it, particalarly VCD's/MPG's. I have a few minor concerns which were not mentioned earler which I will address.

As an aside, apart from packaging I think this player is basically the same as a Cyberhome AM-512. I have removed the cover and the DVD player uses a standard IDE DVD-ROM, which is made by Cyberdrive. Personally I think… Read Full Review

i purchased the technika512 dvd player and was taken back by the picture and sound quality for a machine that cost only £120.never did it struggle to playback vcd/svcd formatts even on cheap media[whites/mirrors].no blocking or pixelating throughout playback and exellent 5.1 dolby sound that left me a bit surprised for a virtually unknown high street brand.i had a certain movie on vcd that wouldnt play on my new jvc-300 so i decided to try it in the technika 512,and not surprising away she… Read Full Review

after recieving this review i went to my nearest miller brothers today to purchase one, only to be told that many of them have been sent back and i would have to take my chance if i brought one.as you can imagine i was disappointed after reading this review and came away without one. They also said that the shop would not accept it back or offer a refund and i would have had to send it back to the manufactures if it developed faults, any comments on this would be much appreciated.
<br><br> thanking you.

well it seems that a lot of stores are now using this policy were as you can't return it if a fault appears, its just that miller brothers tell you before you purchase it. the reason being vcd/svcd is a copy format therefore making it illegal so if you do decide to purchase else were then ask first. you also stated that they have had a lot returned, well why are they on there second batch and had to wait nearly 3 months for them to arrive,surely the warning flags would have been out if so many were returned from the first batch.i can only vouch for mine and its up and running ok.for how long it will last? time will tell. hope my review wasnt misleading in anyway its just a review on the my player and im more than happy with it for the price.

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

RRP around £250. Can be picked up for about £130 on the high street. Got mine from Miller Bro for £119. All the features are great. Superb picture and sound when used with extra speakers. Loads of outputs (Dolby 5.1, optical, s-video and scart). Features include DVD,SVCD,VCD,CD,MP3 and Karaoke. Cant ask for much more at £250. Get it cheaper and its more of a bargain. Also easy to make multi region… Read Full Review
