This was on HUKD a couple of months back, but the price went up and it has come back down again. Instore they were showing "was £79.97".

Back to £49.97 now both instore and Tesco Direct. Granted it is not a named brand, however this can be hacked to region free DVD and you can also change the Blu-Ray region. It also has a USB port and reports suggest it can handle .mkv files and .avi

Thought it was worth a punt, sub £50 region free blu-ray, and if its no good, Tesco's return policy is pretty liberal.


EDIT: Thanks to stuart9787 who has pointed out this can be had for £40 odd quid. Tesco Direct have a £10 off £50 spend code. Add this Blu-Ray player and something cheap to your basket and use code TDX-KG4T to take £10 off.

No usb capability, which I'd say was needed, personally.

There have been quite a number of sub £50 branded Blu Ray Players that have been reduced recently posted on here. This deal I feel is warm at best.

How do you mean?

Yes it does but like a lot of players it only supports fat32

The good thing about this player is that it's hackable easily for multi-region blu-ray though you have to change the region with the remote manually every time you want to change regions

this has usb playback,its also multi region blu ray and dvd,i have one and quite like it although had to move it to the bedroom as the remote seemed to be the same frequency as my speaker system and when i turned the sound down it would rewind the blu ray,also i paid 50 pound about 2 months ago

That is a fair comment, however most of the recent branded cheap BluRay players have been store specific meaning they are rare as rocking horse sh*t! The Makro LG deal is good but again not widely available as you need to havea local makro and access to a makro card.

This is widely available, has some neat features for the price, and like I said, if it turns out to be junk, Tesco's return policy on electricals is very good!

You can get it even cheaper if you do the following - add something cheap to your basket, eg,

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.100-4493.aspx

which takes total to £51.84 but then use voucher code TDX-KG4T (£10 off when you spend £50 on Direct) which brings total down to £41.84 - tried myself and works. If the item above is no use to you just find something else cheap you would use that takes price over £50 and then apply code to get £10 off.

Hope it helps.

Is the player any good at playing blu ray disks? I don't need it for anything else.

Can anyone access the Which review? http://www.which.co.uk/technology/tv-and-dvd/reviews/blu-ray-dvd-players/technika-brss10/review/

Just to confirm, this does have a USB slot for USB pen playback? Is this at the front or back of machine?

It is a good player I own one myself, got it when it was last £49.99.

It can play nearly all video files, even manages mkv's (but not without it's disadvantages) some mkv's play fine, but depending on the codec originally used in the mkv depends on wether it will play.

I've downloaded a few mkv's some play flawless and some just don't like the video codec and doesn't display video files.

But I am due to take mine back to tesco,just purely on the basis that it doesn't connect to it's main server to download firmware upgrades, always gives error codes, (probably because the server isn't supporting the player, is offline, or they have given up support all together.

The menu system is easy and fast, discs load up suprisingly fast and plays bluray's fine. The upscaling is decent, I haven't had any bad comments on how blurays look on it as they look as good as a sony bdp, or a phillips. The better your tv is as well always help, but even on my spare beko 32" hdtv it looks great. On my 42" lg however picture is outstanding.

So worth a punt, but be warned about the firmware updates/support for player. I think i'm going to have a exchange for a lg or something like that.

Hope this helps some of you.

Not a bad review at £90 so getting it for half that price now can't be bad.

There's a warmish hue to the colours; sound is somewhat flat; complicated remote control

You think that is good? I wouldn't want a flat sounding Blu Ray Player through my Marantz Receiver, with artificial colour response on the TV.
#22
Hot price, could do with a br player for the bedroom and at under £50 this will do very nicely.
#23
The Which review is critical of the picture quality and ease of use. Me thinks I'd rather wait til something like the Sony BDP 370 drops in price although it doesn't seem to move that much from c.£100.

NB it's worth observing Blu Rays players have been available from time to time for around a year now at the c.£50 level but they just don't seem to have breached that level. So whilst this may not be up there with the best, it's a reasonable deal....

I stand corrected then, as I never saw it listed anywhere.

Worth a look.

Thanks for this! Bagged it for £29 (with help from a load of unused voucher codes i never knew i had! lol) HOT!
