3 year warranty dont miss out

My son was given an older version of this for his Birthday a couple of years ago, Tevion I think it's called, and it's been absolutely brilliant, and still works perfectly.As you can see, you really do get everything you need with it, even the case.It holds a fairly decent charge, and it seems to play almost any disc without problems, and with the USB/SD card slots, it makes it easy to view downloaded clips or movies.It also comes with a RCA cable to hook with a TV which was useful, and infact if I was to find anything missing at all, it would have been nice if it had an AV input as well (perhaps this new version does?), but that's just being picky!
Great value for money, and highly recommended.;)

Is this a reduced price or is this the origional price do you know? Not complaining either way like just out of interest. Have some heat anyhow as i'm after one.;)

Whilst this is the normal price (my sons cost exactly the same 2 years ago), this new model offers some additional features, like the swivel screen.So, bearing in mind all the accessories this comes supplied with, and the 3 year guarantee, I'd say you'd be hard pushed to find anything as good, for the same price, let alone cheaper, so this represents IMO the best value for money deal out there for a portable DVD player of this spec.

Let me get this straight - if you plug in your USB with your avi move files, it will be able to read them ?

How long the battery last?

depending on the encoding of the files yes! will prob play most Divx5 and prob Xvid and mp4 but not MKV, prob not H264 or WMV but theres plenty of free progs out there to convert to supported formats if it wont play!

I'm sure the battery will only last 2 to 3 hours on one charge. Good luck for the remaining 10 hours!!! I don't have this model, but the one before it, and the maximum I have achieved is 3 hours 10, that was on a very low volume and just playing, no pausing, rewinding etc. Perhaps this one is better, but I don't think it will be a huge improvement.

yep - these things struggle to even get 3 hours playback

a PSP is a far better alternative for long flights (6-8 hours and batteries are around £10-£15)

also, bear in mind ALDI are notorious for not honouring warranties do good luck if this goes wrong in 13 months time as they will probably say get on to the manufacturer (based in China I expect or gone bust)

For what you get for the price, it's worth the gamble for me ;)

Spot on. I purchased an Eletrical product from ALDi, it became faulty after 4 Months. I took it back to my local store and I was told" You have to return it to the Manufacturer". I informed the Assistant that my "Contract of Sale" was with ALDI and they could sort the problem. The Assistant phoned Head Office who told her that ALDI were not responsible. I advised that I was reporting the situation to Trading Standards, the immediate response was "As a gesture of goodwill we will in this instance refund ther purchase price". I thanked them and suggested that ALDI Staff shuold receive training in Consumer Law. ( Gesture of goodwill my XXX) .CAVEOT EMPTOR!.

these aren't a bad little item but have had a bit of grief with mine, replaced 2 of them when i first bought it last year due to dead pixels on the screen. Finally got a good one then the laser packed up earlier this year Only used once before that), simple to get it repaired though but cost me the postage to send it to them.

I see that a previous incarnation of this wouldn't play 4:3 videos without stretching them to 16:9, despite its blurb saying that the ratio was switchable:

Anyone know if this new one has the same problem?

yep - seen many horror stories from aldi with them not even honouring the 12 month contract

I would never dream of buying any highish value electrical items from them. or play.com for that matter.

Is it multi regionable. I have loads of region 1 and 3 discs so would only be interested if it had a remote hack

I guess it just depends on the store and the manufacturer when it comes to Aldi. We've had our laptop (Medion) break down at 2 1/2 years of use - sent it back to Medion via the Aldi help line - got it returned to us fixed and didn't cost us a penny.

Our microwave from Aldi broke down after 9 months - again called the helpline got a new one delivered to our door (and the old one taken away).

Also got full refund when a MP3 player broke and it couldn't be repaired.

So while I understand there are horror stories out there, I've never had any problems with returns when things have broken. The only issue they have is that the stores aren't desgined to deal with returns and you should contact the helplines.

We've had one of these for about a year now. My son is autistic and he would use it for around 4 hours every day with HUUUUGE amounts of rewinding 2 seconds and doing that about 50 times in succession! It took about 6 months to start behaving strangely - but to be honest that would equate to about 5 years of normal use.

The good news is that when the battery stopped holding a charge, I got in touch with them and they were very good. It seems to be a UK-based company called "Quesh" that actually handles the warranty repairs. They replaced the battery and all is good again.

It DOES play AVIs and MP3s but I don't have any MKVs etc so can't comment. I seriously doubt it though. It will play AVIs from either a data DVD, a USB source or an SD card.

My main gripe is with the interface. Whilst it will do all the things it says on the tin, it can be very slow to do things and the look and feel are pretty poor.
#21
Does anyone know if you can, via the usb port, hook this up to a camcorder and use it as a slightly remote screen.
#22
Just bought this, first impressions are good. Can confirm this plays copies and avi's no problem!

Got two before Christmas for our son (3) and daughter (1) to use on long car journeys. Main gripe is that I wouldn't trust the supplied bag to be used as the in car holder as it was very flimsy and only hung on the back of the seat, so would be a nightmare in a crash situation. Found a bracket that fitted to the headrest poles on the Bay, which attached to the DVD player using the screw hole on the bottom of the player. Don't tend to use it on the battery so can't comment on how long it lasts, but have to admit that it gets used almost daily by our son in the house to entertain him when he wakes up at stupid-o'clock!! Money well spent in my view.

Car mount would be useful - what exactly am I looking for?

surely a fixed bracket to the headrest is far more dangerous than a flexible hanger which will give way in an accident?
#30
I guess the DVD player would turn into a projectile during an accident whereas on a proper mount it would not move - If the child is properly secured you would not expect its head to hit the headrest of the seat in front???

I'd previously purchased a Philips and a Sony portable DVD player for a lot more money. This seemed too much of bargain to resist, especially the 3 year warranty so I put my concerns to one side and bought one. Nice looking piece of kit but unfortunately it does have it's drawbacks (1) battery life is poor, 2 hours max (my Sony could go 5 hours between charges) (2) doesn't play DVD-R, only DVD+R, (3) no OSD for battery life so it's bit of a risk estimating when it will die. Hope this is useful.
