OK but as soon as you buy it, throw the guarantee away as Sumvision doesn't honour them.

Great little machine. We've had 2 in the kids bedroom for over a year now with no problems at all. Great for DIVX movies off a USB stick.

Well recommended, HOT for me. :thumbsup:

Who cares, you return it to ebuyer surely?

I Got one for the GF, saves burning all the DIVXs to DVD. Works great, can't fault the thing. Actually thats a lie, the front display looks tacky, but it works well.

I had one; it was complete garbage.

I bought one as the price is down again - last time I read all the 70-odd reviews on ebuyer and they all seemed to like it. At this price its hard to go wrong....?

Total: £37.79 incl. delivery. Trying to make a decision between this one or Media player from amazon for £73.95 which takes passport hdd's. I am fed up with DVD-R/RW and cheap players. Will the Sumvision take an external hdd? This question to the people who already own one of these.

£36.94 on amazon inclusive delivery.

By the way if you change the ebuyer delivery to super-saver then the delivery is free.

I think that http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/306827/sumvision-multi-region-phoenix-prem/?p=3892580#post3892580 covers at least some of the problems I had, there were more, but I really don't care to try and remember :-) I do remember though that picture quality wasn't brilliant.

My opinion is pay a bit more and get a big named brand player. Can't tell you what though as I still use my XBMC XBox for what I tried to use the Phoenix for.

I intend soon to get either something like Popcorn Hour, or more likely build an Atom/Ion media PC to play HD files and all the other fun things such devices can do.

If you're talking about the Western Digital Media Player, personally I'd go for that if you don't mind the extra cash.

I'm a big fan of the WD and if you've got the files and an external HDD or memory stick, to me it's the way to go. I've never looked back getting one.

Oh yeah. Sorry about that!

CONs
1 Sometime reverts from HDMI to another interface without warning (annoying having to hook up the scart just so you can use the menu to change back to hdmi).

2 Remote has too many buttons with - rather than reusing the arrows for FF/REW/Pause it has another set that are hard to find. In most circumstances most controls just say 'Operation not permitted'.
Given the layout you end up having to turn the light on to pase something rather than risk jumping forward a chapter or stopping altogether.

3 Without the remote you can do almost nothing mine was missing when I first bought it, and it just wasn't usable with the few front buttons.

4 Occasionally wakes in a bad mood and refuses to see the remote (switch off to resolve this).

5 Doesn't autoswitch from disk input to USB if no disk present.

6 Memory card reader seems to be limited - Memory Stick Pro Duo and SDHC don't work

Pro's
1 Unlike some other GotoTime buttons - you don't have to zero-pad the digits (on my Philips I have to type 00:30:00 to skip 30 minutes, but on this I press '30:00'.

2 Plays srt, sub, divx, xvid with no problems.
#14
Frequently on Scan's Today Only page for around high £20's to low £30's depending how generous they are feeling.
And by sheer coincidence, available at £31.04 from the TO page until about 13:00 Tues 07 July.
Free delivery for those qualifying via AVForums & similar, otherwise + p&p.

Disagree.. Got one from Maplin.. took back after 6 months with receipt.. they received it and one week later got a brand new one in post.
good player..horrible remote

I'm still right.
You took it back to Maplin, not Sumvision.

Your guarantee is with the supplier, not the manufacturer surely? If my amp breaks I'll call Richer Sounds, not Yamaha.

Your seller's cover only lasts a year.
The guarantee that will not be honoured is the manufacturer's 3 year Guarantee which has to be dealt with by the manufacturer and not the seller.
Unless they have realised their failings and started to only give one year guarantees.
#19
Didn't see anything about a 3 year warranty, just assumed a 1 year.

My flatmate works for Maplin, they use a lot of these units to run instore displays. His review was essentially that when they run, they run well. They are prone to overheating though, so having 4 locked in a drawer (as they do) means they last about 6 months then blow up. They then get replaced under warranty. Those kept cool have no major issues other than when the laser gets misalligned, which isn't often.

Like I said, I got one and am impressed with it. I put films onto a USB stick, and they just work. Will try a HD tonight I think, got a spare 200Gb.

You could also try arguing the 2-year EU law - after all we might as well get something from it!

Aye but I was ill at the time and not up to it.
All I can do now is let people know what truds they are.

It wasn't a player m8.
It was a monitor with a 3 year Gtee.
They said "We can't do anything as the factory's closed down".
Let's hope the player factory doesn't mysteriously "close down".

You might want to do some searching on the 2 year Euro law. It basically says that you could claim up to two years, but you'll have to work hard. If the manufacturer offered only 1 years warranty and you accept that at the point of purchase, then you have to suck it.

In the UK, believe it or not, we have far better protection.

I quote a DTI Spokesperson...

"There is a common misunderstanding that the EU Directive requires a two-year guarantee to be given, but that is not the case. UK law in practice provides better protection for consumers than the two-year minimum required by the EU - consumers are able to pursue relevant claims for up to six years (five in Scotland)."


This may well disappear if we fully buy into the EU rules.

I've got one of these and it's been just fine thus far

Played every DivX/Xvid I have no problem (which my previous player the Yamada 6100 failed on a few)
USB and disc alike

No issue with subtitles .sub format either

Cheap and cheerful
