Thanks, great find. The make isn't amazing but you are getting a lot for your money. Happy Days!:thumbsup: Heat & rep added.

Does it play back DivX from the USB, or just from disc?

would also like to know!
#6
seems like it plays divx from usb fine.

i have a phillips player i got from dixons/currys for £40 which works really well... but if this works, it's a much better deal!
#7
Can you update these if there's a new codec and whatnot?
#8
People were saying it was the bargain of the century when it was at £30.. at £20, it's a no brainer. Will go down later see if I can get one.. I've got a black Samsung HD Ready CRT.. should suit it pretty well.

Seems that the USB can be used to play video, too.
#9
Gonna pop down to ASDA and pick one of these up I think, can anyone tell me how wide the unit is?

cheers
#10
according to avforums, its hit and miss and dont expect top quality for £20

id rather spend the extra and buy a philips one
#11


Thanks bigup for that... I think the general consensus was a thumbs down ! having said that they paid a tenner more, for 20 quid might be worth a punt or pay an extra 13 quid and get the Lidl one, which does seem to be attracting a few fans.
#12
Just so people know this may be very hard to find. Asda have replaced nearly all their ONN DVD players to Asda own brand which doesn't include this USB model.

P.S USB is only 1.1 which is a little poor by today's standards.
#13
I bought one of these a while back, not the best build for a dvd player but does the job for 20-30 quid and yes it plays from the usb, I have done this several times with "avi" files. If your after a cheap player with these specs, it'll do do now.
#14
Am I wrong in thinking usb 2.0 wouldn't actually effect Div-x play back?
#15
Called Asda... Eastlands Walmart and also Ashton U.L. (Manchester) Both have never stocked that model, nor will they be doing so. Looks like the Lidl special for me !

It would depend on bitrate - but I think it's fair comment - most DivX / Xvid stuff would easily run over USB1.1 spec bandwidth.

At a push, DVD-Video stuff would too (up to the limit of DVD-Video spec versus USB1.1 bandwidth would be a bit tricky, but most stuff on DVD isn't that near the limit of bitrate). Well theoritically, at least. In reaily, I'd expect DivX / Xvid stuff would be just peachy, most DVD OK, some nearing the top end of spec bitrate may get choppy.
#17
Bought one of these for £20 in ASDA Boldon just last week and a mate bought 2 in ASDA living Newcastle day before.
Bargain. Works over USB with DIVX fine.

None in mansfiels :x

I was just wondering - I have a philps one, never really thought about it too much - I hope the file naming on this machine is better then on my philips one.

Is this upscaling then? Can you upscale divx?

Why wouldn't you be able to?

There's nothing inherently magic about DivX (or any of the other mpeg4 codecs) that makes them somehow amazing different from, say, SD mpeg2 used on DVD-Video - they are really just schemes of encoding moving video.

mpeg4 can be upscaled, but as it's not constrained by the same spec definitions that mpeg2 video does, in DVD-Video guise, can also be inherently HD (mpeg4 codecs tend to be used for transport for HD video).
#22
Tried to buy 1 in Alloa, Scotland but they didn't have any. Must be worth a try at 20 quid

cheers
#23
This looks identical to an Aldi one I bought 2/3 years ago.....it only lasted 8 months before refusing to switch on. Had my daughters favourite disc inside still too. Of course, taking it apart to retrieve the disc invalidates the warranty.
#24
I binned one of these the other day. It got really temperamental when about playing DVDs, making fugly noises and saying "bad disc" etc.

It was alright for the few months it lasted, but I won't be buying another one; it was enough to put me off these budget brands, a false economy I say.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and the divx playback was poor.

you must be rich to have binned it! Should have got your £20 back, although last time I did that with a faulty DVD player, the Asda store manager claimed I had mistreated it even though It was in spotless boxed condition and then called over the security guards to intimidate me when I wouldn't leave and then threatened to call the police as I was trespassing! :x

May I suggest that next time you need to return an item you return in during the stores opening hours :-D
#27
nice little bit of kit
#28
I couldn't find these in Hartlepool or Middlesbrough (South Bank) yesterday. Both were pushing masses of own brand "smart price" dvd players instead. (£15 but no divx so of no interest to me.)
#29
Picked up two of these from Walsall Asda yesterday. Voted Hot!
#30
None in Stockton (Portrack Lane). :-(
I've a good one (Philips) in the front room, but want a couple of cheapo ones (for the kids, and the inlaws) - these would do nicely.
#31
Dont forget VAT Off over the weekend at ASDA
#32
does this item definitely have a USB connection?
the retail box picture in post #2 makes no reference to USB, yet I would have thought that USB capability would be splattered all over it, similar to the DivX capability.
any confirmation either way please. thanks

to answer my own question: yes, definitely has USB connection.

Bought one this morning, and the ASDA VAT-free weekend actaully gave me a discount of 18% off the current price of £20 (i.e. paid £16.40).
#34
Does anyone know where in central scotland has these elusive dvd players, by that i mean stirling, falkirk, dunfermline etc

cheers for any help folks
#35
just picked one of these up today from Preston Fulwood. With VAT savings on offer this weekend it came to £16.40.
#36
Plenty in Asda Supercentres at Huyton and Manchester (Eastlands) price £16.40 till Sunday.

To clarify a couple of points about this, especially in view of the forum link posted earlier:

Video output via Scart to a regular (non HD) TV is fine as long as you select RGB from the video menu (Setup) otherwise it defaults to composite which is not so good (limitation of the technology not this player).
USB will play music (MP3), Photos (JPEG) and Video (AVI, Divx, Xvid). It even displays MP3 tags. Works fine with a memory stick however it does not seem to support a USB hard drive with a large file structure (ie lots of sub folders) - just shows up as no files (same drive works OK via USB on a - much more expensive - Philips player)
Picture and sound quality are fine for the price (even twice the price) and the remote control seems responsive enough though you do have to aim it quite precisely at the player (Enter button is stupidly small though).
Manual is pretty useless though - why is this always so with cheap supermarket electronics? I bet it causes more returns that actual faulty product....

However, for just over £16 this is definately a hot deal!
#37
Bagged one today

Very slow loading the USB port, and only takes mem sticks and defo not USB harddrives

But for £16 does what i need at the moment
#38
Picked one up this morning at the Crewe store - at £16.40 it would be rude not too. 3 more on the shelf at 11.00.

:thumbsup:
#39
Bagged one today in Hamilton...Five more on the shelf @ 12.30pm
#40
Phoned ASDA Eastlands (Man) last week to check stock, gave mod number, guy said sorry never stocked that item, only limited to certain stores probably, so gave up.

However called at the very same store last night 21:30 to pick up some booze, thought mmm just go and have a check. You guessed it, loads of them on the shelf :roll: Bought 2 @ £32.80.

Connected it via HDMI to my LG37LG3000 (LCD) ran Black Hawk Down (DVD) got to say both P/Q + S/Q is superb ! Dare I say not far behind HD-DVD - EP30 + Panny PX70.

Total BARGAIN at £20.00 let alone £16 odd.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
