Excellent price and as you compare, it's cheaper than Amazon. It's just a shame that there is no HDMI out connection to the TV.

I believe there's a new one of these being released with a built in 1tb hardrive

its all about a HDMI connection .!

No HDMI? So there's more than one model of this product? The one i've had for year or more has HDMI out, i'm guessing that's why this one is pretty cheap?

Great price

i also have an hdmi version but it cost me £70.
but this is still a good price for this version

I have purchased one from Dixons and got it delivered today. I was skeptical about its performance in terms of display quality (since no HDMI). But I'm very much surprised about its output quality from upscaled 1080i. I am planning it to use it to see downloaded movies which anyway don't have 1080p HD quality and this device can't play resolutions over 720p.

I considered the HD version of this device which costs over £70. Given the price and the good quality of output I am seeing on my 32 inch TV, I'm pretty happy with it.

No HDMI and its too tiny and so many wire to connect i will not bother with this one!!!

Tried the HDMI version, which does not have DTS compatability. It was OK, but a bit slow. Bought the Sumvision Cyclone micro for £35 from Novatech, is superb, plays everything.

As long as you don't mind the drop in quality from DVD to avi this is a great piece of kit. I watch my TV torrents on it, but movies are a bit grainy and blocky.

It can't play 720p. It can upscale SD stuff to 720p.

It plays VOBs so if you have the hard drive space you can watch DVD quality.

no HDMI
no DVI
no HD
no network connection
limited video format support eg. no mkv, mp4 support etc

My DVD player does more than this.

This is a great way to watch your old home videos.

I converted all my parents old VHS, VHS-C, Mini DV and Video 8 tapes and stuck them on a hard drive and attached them to this.

Works a treat and for all those old video tapes there is no need for 1080p or hdmi

I bought the HDMI version for 70 about a year and a half.

Worked brilliant, still going strong. For me it's the MKV support that makes it worth the money.

You know, for those less than legitimate files we all have!

i bought the sumvision micro last week from ebuyer for £32+p&p. seems good for the price so far, i was wanting something with an sd card slot that i could just stick on top of a projector, and the mkv/hd support seemed much better for the extra few quid

I am using for 2-3 days now. It plays most of the downloaded videos/movies except mkv and mp4 files. But it does play 720p video. Its good for typical downloaded movie of 700mb or 1.4gb if its high quality one.
