Which store please?

I'll check my local for one tomorrow

3D???

Got one of these from the ASDA deal for £40, brill little players.

Doesnt do 3D.

Any idea if this is store specific, or trying to clear out the lot ???
Wondering if i should pop in on the way to work.

Looks like a good deal if you can find one!

anyone know if this will play DVDs and is it multi region? trying to get mum a cheap machine that will play everything!

It will play DVD's if its region locked there will be a hack to unlock it just Google it, i have a Philips that i caught off here last year for £49.99 and it came with all the wildlife DVD's that where worth around £60 alone and the player is still one of there top line players that are £100, the moral of the story is within minutes id found a hack that even unlocked multiregion for the Blurays.

I don't know why this has gone hot because the players not listed on there website, what's happened is your store must of had the 5 players left sitting about in the stock room which hadn't sold and where old so they are selling them off cheap. You will find that it was just your store im voting cold and not even going to bother contacting the store because im that sure.

Bang on!

Bang on!



Totally agree. It's not hot if you don't even say which store you bought it from. In store deals are exclusive enough. No need to make it more difficult. Sure you don't work for Currys

Thanks for taking the time to post the deal - some of us appreciate it

Another made up store only deal to get someone some free heat and a badge :0(

It's good that someone shares a deal however random it maybe as if you are passing it's worth checking but I am ceratinly not going to drive especially to my local to see.
It would help if you put the store and maybe a receipt to prove it though.

Yes, thanks OP. Don't listen to all of the negative comments. Some people appear to have far too much time on their hands and believe that everyone requires the virtual life affirmation they crave. I for one want people to share every deal they can find and am happy to exert some effort in seeking it out for myself. It's really not such a burdon to phone your local store and check if they stock an item. But some want 'the moon on a stick' and nothing less. Keep up the good work.

I will be popping into my local currys to pickup a vacuum cleaner and will also check for this player

Bit harsh. OP is simply making people aware of what they found. If it was an interesting deal for you, its surely worth a phone call?
Anyway, its not a .97 deal, which indicates clearance, and the OP did ask if it was in all stores, so come on, give the guy a break.
Perhaps people should not be insisting on posting receipts, and try checking themselves before knocking the deal.
Dont like LG personally and already got a Panasonic and Sharp 3d BD player, but vote hot to counter the negativity that seems to cloud this sight lately.

Thanks for posting OP.

So far as I know this player cannot be made multi-region (at least by remote hacks - you may be able to buy a hardware hack).

If anyone finds a multi-region hack let me know as I've been looking on and off for more than a year and not found it yet

Good deal, if you find one.

Has anyone other than the OP managed to find one?

Says No DNLA - what is DNLA?

Delivered.

Phoned Liverpool Digital and told out of stock.

Anyone in London and the S.E - just phoned and there is 1 in their Catford branch and a display model in Sevenoaks.

Do you know what a moral actually is?

And, it clearly says "clearance" so its hardly likely to be on their web site.

IF that were true (and it isn't, limited stock is available nationwide apparently), why on Earth would it bother you? So someone gets some heat - wow - they've gained... nothing, you've lost... nothing. It's not a competition.

I couldnt agree more. Some people are extremely petty on here. To the point where if I use one of the links/deals and people start whinging about not getting heat then they will never get it

I have one of these players and it is multi-region for DVD & region-free for Blu-ray.
It can be done.
There might be a DVD multi-region remote hack for it by now - I do recall seeing it talked about on the avforums......but it was for the US-only 560 model (so if you want to risk bricking the player then by all means try that, and maybe at this price more would be tempted to try, if you can find stock)

But it definitely needed a hardware mod for Blu-ray region free, which took the price (at the time the unmodded ones were about £90) to £170.
Which was a decent deal considering the price of the Panny which I also looked at (you were expected to 'donate' a fairly large sum for the software to make it region free on everything).

No 3D with this one, but then I have zero interest in that in the home.
Having both coax & optical audio outputs in addition to the usual HDMI socket are handy & offer a nice bit of flexibility for those who need it.

Edit to add -
Scratch that, the 560 hack won't work.
BD550 (european version) = Mediatek MT8530 chipset; BD560 = Broadcom BCM7630 chipset

anyone find regions free code - I will also be interested
I got mine from marko last year for about 35odd bucks - player does the job

I have this model bd550 and it does NOT play MKVs. Mine stopped reading DVDs after a few months too.

Just called currys... They said they don't stock this item... Also mentioned it maybe a clearance item they said 'if its not on our system it's not in our stores'

Just tried the Manchester Store. They had about 5 of them but were selling them for £49.95.....without a remote.

Need to check

I can Confirm this deal does exist and i have just got the last one in Shrewsbury, Meole brace for £27! because it didnt have a remote with it i asked if they could knock any more off and they said 10% is the best they could do.
To all you people out there that think it was fake and were rude... IN YOUR FACE!

As Currys and PC World are the same company it makes sense that PC World may be duplicating this offer in store - just a suggestion for people who after this deal.
