Written on: 18/10/2009

Not had this DVD player for more than three months, and during my son playing a Tom and Jerry DVD this morning our DVD player also made a loud popping sound and died a death. We too bought this DVD Player from an E-Buyer and will be taking this matter up with them. Its o.k having all these special features but they are pointless if the machine is nothing more than a bargain basement reject tarted up… Read Full Review

“So I wanted to watch my DVD movies upscaled especially...”

Written on: 13/09/2008 by garchunlee (16 reviews written)

So I wanted to watch my DVD movies upscaled especially since my region 3 House of Flying Daggers won ' t work in my Playstation 3. I had a few DVD players in the past(Yamada 6600 http://www.reviewcentre.com/review147484.html Ronin P80L http://www.reviewcentre.com/review34731.html). I already had a pretty good DVD player (Peekton 6006 DVD player) which handled DVD ' s/DivX very competently , but no HDMI/upscaling.

I was also getting sick of burning disks all the time, so when I saw the… Read Full Review

Note
<br/>
<br/>After extensively altering the settings on the DVD player I finally get the unit to perform well. This is how I did it:
<br/>
<br/>Go into Setup > Video > Smart Picture > Dynamic and a sub menu appears. Take the contrast to 15 and colour to 9. Plus change the HD resolution from Auto to 1080p and suddenly you get a bright, vibrant picture with deep rich colours in comparison with the auto settings.
<br/>
<br/>Using The Matrix as my test video the picture reproduction is deep with altering black levels which were well reproduced with no motion blurring during fast scenes alter the picture was slightly grainer than using the Playstation 3, but otherwise it is a solid picture production.
<br/>
<br/>This is the first time I have had to reverse my recommendation for any product, but I would recommend this product to others

Written on: 08/01/2009

I agree with this review because the manual is atrocious, see my own review. It has features like USB input which aren't even mentioned in the manual. <br/><br/>It's not for the unadventurous or people with low levels of patience. I've had mine for many months now and always have problems loading DVDs into it. It usually takes 4 or 5 attempts to get real authentic DVDs to load instead of being ejected with the message "no disk". In addition there are now even more upscaling DVD players and at lower prices. Seriously think about buying a different model, even if it costs a fiver more.

Written on: 30/07/2008 by smiler03 (6 reviews written)

We have a 32inch Samsung HD ready LCD TV that is about two years old. This DVD upscales the picture from ordinary DVDs to the best picture quality that your television can support, so you should notice an improvement in the picture quality compared to a standard DVD player. Note that you MUST use an HDMI cable to benefit from this upscaling. I've seen reviews where people are connected by scart lead and say they can see the difference, if this is the case it's NOT because the picture has been… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/07/2008 by RUBBER2405 (8 reviews written)

Well, I have to say that this player is an absolute bargain. It's extremely versatile and decent build quality for the money. I have only had it a week, so we will see what the longevity is like, but it has a 12 month warranty.
I play mine through a Panasonic Viera 32" HD Ready LCD, using a Nyko HDMI cable. I have played a few Div X formatted movies on it and they are surprisingly good quality. You have to bear in mind that a Div X movie will have been compressed to about a 1/6th of it's… Read Full Review
