“Overall great machine. ”

Written on: 17/03/2005 by calvedav (1 review written)

Overall great machine.
Does its job.
Amazing sound.
Player gets quite hot.
Small hum from player (not really noticeable).
If I was to get another one I would have the player in the open, they don't like tight fitting cabinets or surrounds, it needs a lot of air due to the amp being inside the player for the speakers… Read Full Review

Grundig GDV720 HT - Good product for the price if a little tacky with its silver box and mirrored front. But has a great deal of functionality and is easy to hack. Don't know if it will out NTSC. Had mine for over a year; great kit if a little warm… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2004 by hemantb (2 reviews written)

This Grundig GDV720 HT is a very good player, good value for money. I bought it 3 weeks ago and now enjoying superb sound quality. Picture quality is also more than avg. The only problem is it is not recognizing few DVDs. (All Region 2, bought from TESCO!!) Also it takes long time to load the DVD. Apart from that there is no problem. Overall very good system… Read Full Review

For the money you pay not a bad package.
There are good points and bad points as stated above but for people like myself that can't afford the best this is a good alternative, you get the dvd player and surround sound that you want for a reasonable price, if not for the buzzing noise would be very good… Read Full Review

Bought a Grundig GDV720 HT 24 hours ago for a good price (£137.00 - demonstration model). This is my first venture into DVD and I have to say that I'm impressed with this machine. Top class picture. Incredible sound. Loads of options. A lot of kit for the money… Read Full Review

For the price of this Grundig GDV720 HT, it is awesome. The picture and sound quality are both top notch. It plays all dvds from any region superbly, and it plays cd-r's with no comprimise in quality. I would highly recomend this to anyone looking for a quality budget home cinema system… Read Full Review

I bought this and after entering the region then VCD hack all my NTSC dvds look choppy as hell, I assume the player cant output NTSC but you claim they all look fine, is there a way to factory reset the player and Ill try without the VCD hack ?

“All in all a good unit, the surround sound is good...”

Written on: 20/01/2003 by Sean Flanagan. (1 review written)

All in all a good unit, the surround sound is good quality, the only downside is that if you go too high 45+ then the sub loops out and rattles but when the max volume is 50 who would really listen to it that loud. Admittedly it doesn't want to play VCD's I make or certain DVD's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire interactive game, but with a region free hack it seems to sort these problems. I love the look of the main unit, a mirrored front when off but when on a nice LCD display. The power on… Read Full Review

I read Sean's review of the Grundig GDV720HT and would agree in every respect. I would be interested to know whether the cooling fan on the back of Sean's player ever spins (my unit gets very hot and the fan never seems to be spinning)!

Total true. The sound on this player is ace, but do you need a code to play the VCD's on it?

“This Grundig GDV720 HT DVD Home Cinema System is a...”

Written on: 23/12/2002 by Hegen. (1 review written)

This Grundig GDV720 HT DVD Home Cinema System is a grim piece of kit. Even though a budget item, there is no excuse for the poor picture quality. The picture flickered - most noticeable on blue backgrounds, and lines passed across the picture. The DVD unit is rather crude, with a clunky on/off switch, and cheap looking finish. The DVD player buzzes constantly when switched on, and got rather warm after a time. On the plus side, the cinema sound quality was surprisingly good, and the range of… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2003

Decent review, I think its a little harsh though. The power button downside really isn't that important. The report you made of bad picture quality is very wierd, I have the same unit and the picture quality is amazing. Cant fault it, you must have a dodgy TV or scart lead to be getting these problems.

I have had no problems with heat, flicker or picture quality. I love mine, it's always played movies in high quality and has awesome sound. I think maybe you have had a faulty usint or maybe you have poor TV.
