I have one of these players and can't fault it.

It plays anything I throw at it, mainly avi and divx files but is also a REGION FREE player.

Excellent value for money. :-)
coming up £29.99 for me. Could do with some of these though

Looks like the product is listed twice atonce at £24.99 and then again at £29.99
For 29.99, Argos do a Toshiba SD-190 which is remote hackable, or an LG which is CD image hackable. No USB on either, though, FWIW.
The thirty quid one seems to be without USB... :|

Voted hot, btw.
i find it strange that MAPLIN offer any good deals.

All there stuff is well inflated. :?

I can always get the same thing cheaper elsewhere. :thumbsup:

Many apologies, eager to put my 1st post up. All advice noted anyway
there was one i seen the other day for the same price and had hdmi, big pockets i think
I saw the one with HDMI but it was up for £49.99
Got one and it is playing the files from two different usb sticks fine.
it wouldnt recognise a divx file on an SD card in an usb adapter, I assume because it isnt strictly a USB stick?

Quite good quality,pleasantly surprised
I found it played fine from my 2Gb USB stick but wouldn't recognise my 16Gb USB stick. Seeing as most films come in at around 700Mb no worries.
It might be that it just takes a while to recognise the 16gb stick, bud.
I don't have this particular player, but I have a 4gb and a 16gb that I use fairly regularly, and when I put the 16gb flash into a player it takes a long while to bring up the menu. Once it's running it's fine - but the wait for the menu to come up means I tend to use the smaller stick most of the time.

Not sure why it won't recognise a card in a USB converter. I'm sure it should do, though I've never actually tried doing that with mine.
I have this player, plays pretty much everything, DIVX 3,4,5,6 XVID e.t.c.
Also will read external Hard drives, but must be formatted to FAT32. I have a 500GB USB drive with a 50GB partition that it reads just fine and it doesn't take long to load up all 25 movies on it at all. It also reads subs in SRT,SMI, TEXT format.

The only annoyances I have are the remote IR field is rather narrow, so you have to basically point it straight at the box, the autoplay is well annoying as it goes straight to playing the first file as soon as it had read the medium inserted and have to press RETURN to get to the menu.

Also it has a GOTO key to swap USB and disc, however it won't do this for AVI movies. The manual tells you to remove the disc to read a USB with AVI's or go to the setup menu. However there is a work around:
when the movie or whatever starts to play, press the program key then press the GOTO key to swap between USB and disc.

Playback is a litle stuttery when there is lateral movement across the screen, this can be mostly overcome by selecting PAL60 in the setup menu.
Also the zoom function is pretty rubbish and leaves an annoying onscreen message in the top left corner. (why all cheap DVD players do this I don't know?)

You can't tell whether the unit is on or off as there is no indictor on the box when switched off/on via the remote.

Apart from that it is a pretty decent player and well worth the £25, plays everything in very good quality, has loads of outputs and is a neat and quiet unit.
