Hi buddy, does this have USB connection? my sisters dvd has gone kaput and she is looking for one that hsa usb connection to play xvid/divx files from a pen drive etc

Bought one of these last time listed as a deal.

Works fine, but is noisy in standby - a whiny annoying sound which goes away when you power up! Worth bearing in mind for bedrooms etc.

Bought one a couple of weeks back, seems to play pretty much all the xvids i have tried. Its nice and small too which is good for the kids bedroom its in, the only downside is you cannot fast forward on xvid playback works fine with dvd's but not xvid?

For the price its not too bad, but the Tosh player recently listed would probably be a better bet.

Glad you mentioned that because if that's the case then I won't be getting one for my daughter. Strange, as that doesn't happen on my divx player that I bought 3 yrs a go. :?

Sounds like a good incentive to teach yourself to turn things off rather than put them in standby. Standby uses like 80% the amount of power as having the item on in a lot of cases. It is just pouring money down the drain.

tesco, with their buying power should have asked the chinese manufacturers to supply units with a physical click off switch that turns it off completely.

It's hard to understand the standby noise - what on Earth is making it? This is an excellent price for a player with xvid capability but what it really needs is a USB port, I certainly wouldn't consider buying a DVD player without one whatever the price.

FWIW - these are REALLY cheap DVD players - mince constantly hiccups and whirs during playback. You CAN (kindof) fast forward - the buttons dont work, but you can enter a time to seek to - so you can just skip to the position you want - not ideal, but better than having to start from scratch

Thanks for the lesson :whistling:

I think the switch to off should be OFF not standby - a design fault, and irritating to boot. Worth noting if you are buying this.

I have this (and many other electrical appliances before the green police pop round ;-)) on a remote power saving plug switcher off thingy as the mains socket is not (in) a good place for small(er) hands to reach and power off is the only way to rid yourself of the whiny noise.

I'd not buy this one again, for exactly these reasons.

Wish I waited and got the Toshiba DVD-Recorder... this is pretty noisy it plays only about 75% of my films and subtitles rarely work also you can't fast forward or rewind which is the most annoying thing ever.

My 4-5 year old Philips and VCR which I brought for between £40-£50 kicks this machines ass.

I've had one of these for a couple of months and it's going back this week - it only plays about half of the DivX/XVid films I've tried, it's really noisy (although it seems to quiten down after about 15 minutes of use) and it has a habit of crashing if you try anything out of the ordinary like fast forwarding or rewinding even with normal DVDs.

I took one of these back because it was noisey on playback as well as the irritating standby noise.

"also features a SCART socket."

Features?!!?! Seriously?

That's like a hotel advertising 'Hot and Cold running water!'

Lol - it also has "Full functional remote control" instead of the half-functioning remotes all the other manufacturer's tend to supply.

I wish i'd seen this post sooner, i purchased this a few months back just before xmas as it said it played xvid....
Couldnt get it to play any of the 30+ xvid/divx movies I tried so sent it straight back.
