okthen Tech: Which DVD player to buy? (29) RE: Tech: Which DVD player to buy? 12 Sep 03


The cheaper one of the two doesn't mention a remote, but these are pretty standard, at 50 you're not likely to get anything much cheaper. The info doesn't mention scart leads, but you should be able to pick up a set from the market for about 5.
All in all I'd go for the Daewoo, simply because I know the name, in the end you get what you pay for,but the specs look OK.
One thing to bear in mind is before you play the DVD make sure it is clean, use a soft antistatic cloth, as you might get fron an opticians (do not use toilet or kitchen paper, it has microscopic pieces of metal in)wipe in a circular action from the inside to the outside (opposite of the way a vinyl LP was recorded).If you rent from a video shop, check the disc at the shop, if it has loads of scratches on it ask for another.
DVD is a better quality product than video tape but the disc can at times "hang" if there are fingerprints or worse still chunks out of it.
Hope this helps.
