Wharfedale DVD-750 (exclusive to Tescos)

“14 years on and still going strong!”

Written on: 13/03/2014 by Kelleher140 (1 review written)

I was one of the first people to buy a Wharfedale DVD750 and 750-s in the UK. It cost £180 originally from Tescos in 1999. My units (I own the two variants above) are still going strong in 2014, even though we have now upgraded our TV to HD 40"! The Sony TV upscales the picture perfectly adequately and the player has had over 2000 films put through it. Now THAT is reliability. We can't be the ONLY people left using this player, can we? If anyone else is still using theirs we'd like to know… Read Full Review

When you switch on the Wharfedale DVD-750, the drawer just will not open for a good 10-20 seconds. The machine does not have sufficient logic to realise that when there is no disc in there, it's gotta open. No questions… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/05/2003 by Stig. (1 review written)

This is a great machine. OK, it looks a little less sleek than the budget players of today, but I have no excuse (other than the desire to have a DVD player that plays MP3 files and is DTS compatible) to replace mine. PLUS it is possible to use this region-free if you know where to look… Read Full Review

Stig - My old Wharfedale DVD-750 played the Fasy and the Furious dts soundtrack - I chose dts from the audio options (obviously) and my amp changed display to dts, so I'm happy that it worked.

<br>Now they're a bargain for £30 at Richers!

Written on: 06/10/2002 by Stevie. (1 review written)

I bought my Wharfdale DVD-750S from Tescos in Enfield. I went looking on the shelves where they should have been, but they were all sold out. Mine was hidden by someone else behind some clothing where I spotted it. I took it to the cashier who told me it was £100. A man behind me at the checkouts started kicking the counter saying that he had bought 1 the previous week for £180. I was very lucky. So far to date (1yr and 5 months on) I have be able to watch and hear everything that I put in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/09/2002 by Andy Watson. (1 review written)

Bought the Wharfdale DVD-750 DVD player in June 2000 from Tescos for £180 - cheapest around at the time.

Good sound and picture quality. Had no problems with it except that it wouldn't play Gladiator disk 2 with the additional features. Until recently that is...
Had some trouble switching it on until eventually it would not power up at all. I have been informed that the power unit is broken and the part is no longer made so the player is now useless.
So much for buying cheap. Anybody got a… Read Full Review

“I bought the Wharfdale 750 DVD player from Tescos...”

Written on: 09/05/2002 by Peter. (1 review written)

I bought the Wharfdale 750 DVD player from Tescos second or third batch. It was simple to set up and easy to hack. Plays through RGB scart and digital coaxial. The picture and sound are exceptional, the first through my old (1995) 25 inch Panasonic TV, the second through a Sherwood 925RDS receiver, 5 speakers and a sub. I can't complain about its value (at the time of buying there was nothing to really touch it at the price) or performance which I find is exceptional, don't even notice the… Read Full Review

With the AI disk, do not select any of the functions from the menu, in order to play the disk, select "GOTO" from the remote, then key in "0" "1" "ENT", this should then send you straight to chapter 1 on the disk so you can watch the film at least, but you won't be able to select any of the bonus features on the disk - hope this helps.

Written on: 15/03/2002 by Player.. (1 review written)

Ever since I bought my Wharfedale DVD-750 dvd player for £150, i've enjoyed every moment of owning it. The picture is very good on all the films i've seen, and the sound is very clear. I can confidently say that this has to be the best dvd player you can pick up at this price, unless of course you're a bit of a dodgy geezer and steal a nice top-end one! By the way, for anybody who wants a mental film, look into 'The Fast and The Furious'-oh yes!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/02/2002 by Bob. (1 review written)

Get a life if you think there is anything particularly wrong with this box. I've had my Wharfedale DVD-750 DVD player for well over a year with only a few minor glitches which were usually resolved by either cleaning the disk or changing back from multiregion to region 2. I did have some initial setup issues but I put that down to my own inexperience.
For the guy with problems on the Gladiator Disk 2, this is not the player. It's the disk. It used to be possible to get the disk replaced… Read Full Review

I bought one of these Wharfedale DVD-750 DVD players when I saw them in my local tescos. It wasn't the cheapest they had, but it was very reasonable and offered all of the features I was after. At first I was reasonably happy with my purchase but it was only after watching a number of films on it that flaws became apparent.
- The menu system is UGLY.
- When watching some titles it would freeze the frame and sound for a fraction of a second. For some titles this was very bad.
- Extra features on… Read Full Review

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

I've had my Wharfdale DVD-750 DVD player for about a year now and I can honestly say I've had no problems with it. Yes, it might look clunky alongside some of the more streamlined DVD players available, but the quality of this particular player means looks aren't important. As long as I can keep playing all my favourite DVD's, my 750 is staying right where it is.
And for all those people who've been asking about playing multi-regional DVD's on the 750, you might want to check out the… Read Full Review

I have had my Wharfedale 750 for about a year and a half now and I'm chuffed to bits! I can't really complain about it at all. Yes them menu is not good looking but who watches the menu, it's the films you watch anyway.

The sound is very good, mine is set up through a Dolby Digital tv and the sound is spot on, picture quality is very good too, you have to remember too that all dvd disks vary in quality, some are pin sharp and some aren't.

I was tempted when i saw one of these at Tesco at £99.99. Bargain i thought until i switched the thing on. The menu system looks like it was developed using a Sinclair Spectrum. The drive is noisy and picture quality is poor (for a DVD) as for the sound hmmm this was my biggest let down. I wasn't even tempted to put it in the kids bedroom so i took it back and got a full refund. From what i have heard Wharfdale is not the company it once was and this is proof of it.
