Multi region and with 7" screen - £158.62 from Ebuyer
Does anyone have one of these players? Just wondered how they compare, especially picture quality.
They also have the Mustek 207, which is the same price, and a great player, imho
I think the one to go for is the Mustek - you can get spare batteries for that one too.
I have no idea which of these two portables is the better buy, but spare batteries, and a few other accesories, can be bought for the Ronin from here
Good link there mate, spare batteries for the Ronin are a lot cheaper then the ones for the Mustek.
There's a review by What Video and TV... seems the Ronin may be pretty good
Doh, and I thought I was going to have a quiet month.
Price seems to have gone up £201 now
Yup, out of stock now.
£163 here (http://www.microlandtechnology.com/products.asp?partno=MM9696) - just not sure whether it's any good. Reviews for the Mustek on ebuyer are excellent, might wait to see if any appear for the Ronin before buying one.
Back in stock at ebuyer... but now £169.20
I think I'll get one from 3wisemonkeys for £164.99 inc. special delivery
I am not so sure about the Mustek
Take a look at this online store's comments for the 7" version:
They seem to recommend these for 7":
They could be biased but they say they have been selling players since 2002 but more interestingly they still seem to be selling all the other Mustek products which would suggest their comments may be true for that specific model !
I've been reading those comments aswell and don't know what to make of them. The Mustek is available on ebuyer and gets good reviews but I think the Shinco is better, however I don't think the Shinco has AV in which I want for my Digicam as a check of my photos a the end of the day.
I bought the Ronin in the end and I am very pleased.
It has AV inputs as well as S-Video output.
The screen looks to be good and very bright although I have used it mainly for hooking up to a TV at which it has performed impeccably.
MP3 playbakc is also good although the on screen interface could b better for this !
I recently ordered one of these players from Play.com at what seemed to be a very good price of £99.99.
Sadly, the machine was not much cop. The unit responded to the remote intermittently, making it impossible to navigate through DVD menus or change player settings. I did change the battery but it made no difference. I would have tried a replacement, but what put me off big time was the truly awful picture. The screen was affected by faint thick horizontal bars across the entire picture from top to bottom, making the picture unwatchable.
Full marks to Play.com for refunding without quibble, but the player was a big disappointment.
Anyone else had any problems with this player, or was it just me being unlucky (again) ?
I have got one of these and my one appears to be a faulty one also. Whenever a disc is placed into it will not pick it up and bring up the message that no disc has been placed into it. It has been able to read a disc a few times but 90% of the time it will bring up this message. All the discs are very clean and play fine everywhere else i have tried.
I regret buying this player.
I am having trouble in locating the companies website also does anybody have the link to it?
Thanks for the link John i appreciate your help
