Had enough!



Well that’s it! I’ve finally had enough of the Sharp vcr/dvd combo unit I’ve got – useless p.o.s.

VCR side is fine but the dvd aspect is [email protected], it only plays what it feels like on the day. As opposed to the £20 Alba system in the office that plays anything thrown at it!

So, time for a new one –
Progressive scan
Component output
Multi region
+R and –R and all permutations of them
and all for under £100, so any suggestions?

Have seen this at Maplins and with a discount should be under £50, anyone with any thoughts or suggestions?


Will be connecting to my TH42PE50 via Monster THX component cable and RGB scart

Hi there dozer,

May I suggest THIS FINE MACHINE here. Has many fans on the forums (me included), plays the formats you require plus DVD-A and SACD, MR outta the box AND has great audio / picture quality.
Though component in prog scan (PAL & NTSC) on my Toshiba zp48, the PQ is amazing.
IMHO its cheap at twice the price.... :clap: ....
