ASDA Duraband DVD Player £9! from tomorrow

Buy forBuy forBuy for£9
GETGet dealVisit site and get deal
Pop down to your local ASDA from tomorrow if you are after a cheap DVD Player! It is ASDA's own Durabrand DVD player reduced from £17 to just £9, I can confirm that these will be available at all of the 316 ASDA stores with stock of between 200 and 600 each (depending on store size). This offer will only last for four days and starts from tomorrow at 6am and is also limited to one per customer.

Please beware though that the DVD players do NOT come with a scart lead, so you will need to purchase one separate, but if youre like me you will have a few spare around the house.

This offer is the follow up to the 15 LCD they had at the end of December, look out at the end of February for another electrical bargain

Voted hot and rep added

I presume the multiregion hack is via the remote control?

Be warned!!! These DVD players are serioulsy cheap!

do they play DVD-RW's?

They are good DVD players, they play some CD-R disks too! And you can get a scart for a quid in poundland. That's a tenner for a nice little dvd player in the spare/kids room. the remote is small and not too much functions so ideal for children and grandparents!!

If it's the DVD in the picture I have one of these. Though got it for 99p as a new 99p shop opened at my local shops and they gave them away to the first 99 customers!!

Works well, not had any problems with it though it does keep putting subtitles up with each movie at the start so have to cancel them even though Ive correct this in setup. A part from that little annoyance it's absolutely fine.

i bought 2 of these 2 christmases ago they worked fine for a few months then they crashed & jittered . their not worth the hassle pay the money for a matsui dvd player i swear by matsui i wouldnt buy anything else

Yes, the hack is enabled on the remote control. Not had any problems with mine, had it about 2 years.

How do you make it multi region?

These are a good player for the money and Just to let you know that they do play VCD's.

do they play divx?

if not whats the cheapest divx dvd player?

do they play divx?if not whats the cheapest divx dvd player?



Not sure if it will play divx but ALDI or LIDL sometimes get DVD players in for £20 which are good and they play most formats including DIVX

Can someone post a link here on how to make it multi region?

Do we get the 10% colleague discount too?

Dont Go To Pound Land Asda Do A Scart For Only 91p

Have you noticed...

Goods are becoming worthless while Services have become extortionate

I'll tell you why,

Goods are manufactured by poor people in the far east, who are paid a pittance

Most Services are at home and are provided by British people

So, Goods can be sold dirt cheap because all British people need to do is import them, while services, which require the daily toil and graft of British people, have become extortionate

£10 hoovers, £9 dvd players, £19 suits etc

But our Gas and Electricity bills are going up 25% or more year on year

Our Council tax is going up 5-10% year on year

TV Licenses going up many times inflation year on year

Also..

Interest rates are rising, inflation is rising (and economists are lying about the figures) Personal debt is at record highs, national debt is at record high

Soon we will have nationwide road charging - £1.34 Per Mile

Soon we will all be forced to pay several hundred pounds for a compulsary ID card

Not a pretty picture is it? ...go enjoy your £9 dvd players

It won't be long before we'll all be paying £9 a day for electricity to use them

Bought two of these a couple of years back when they were £25 in ASDA. They have worked perfectly since and have played everything thrown at them inc. all home-made DVD R and DVD RW (plus and minus). Use one as a back up to a bedroom tv and the other for travelling (very portable). For £9 a real bargain. Okay they don't have quite the same number of functions as a full blown player but are still quite versatile.

They don't do DIVX.

For Jazon - I remember the 70s well, when inflation was at 25-30%, wage rises at same levels, mortgages at 15% and industrial unrest all over the place. Times are much easier and fairer now. Sure you are correct that low paid workers are making these but there is also the argument that trade has to be built up in order for prices to rise. Starting off with ideals probably means no trade to at all. And yes, I have travelled and worked in the Far East. I think you'll find that Durabrand is made in China which is one of the up and coming countries due to their increasing trade with the rest of the world.

these £9 dvd players were on sale tonight in my local store. that was at 7.30pm:thumbsup:

Is there a link between the two scenarios you have presented? The only link I see is that interest rates are rising to combat inflation and debt. If interest rate are hiked up we'll think again about borrowing and inflation will drop because we're not spending.

Your utility bills are going up because of wholesale costs.

TV licence is going up at 3% each year for the next two years - the same as inflation. Actually, it's LESS than inflation if you are right about economists lying.

Road charges nationwide? Yes, in key congestion areas to get people off the roads. The roads simply can't cope with the number of cars on the roads and they are only going to increase. Please, make a viable alternative suggestion and I am sure you'll make yourself very rich.

do they play divx?if not whats the cheapest divx dvd player?



no, not at £9, i think you'll need to spend a minimum of double this price for divx.

Went in to Asda, picked up DVD player, went to the till and it was £18.

Thats not supposed to happen is it?

No it isn't! :x

These players priced at £9 have just been a part of a feature on GMTV (6.45am), Asda have a stock of 80,000 to sell at £9.

If I were you, I'd phone the store (number is usually on the receipt) - Tell them you got home, switched telly on to GMTV, ect.,

Then ask when can you collect your refund :giggle:

You should have taken them back and got replacements.

Quite light and smaller than the average DVD player.

Remember that a lot of foreign countries outside the EU don't use scart so you'll need a special lead.
