Question What's the deal with Dansai DVD players?

sponsored links


I am no expert on DVD players , but basically I want a cheap one that plays as many formats as possible.

By all accounts the Dansai from Tescos is the one to go for. Can someone please explain the pros and cons of the various models. Am I right in thinking that 852 is the best one, because 952 and 1010 do not allow you play certain formats?

Also, are Musteks any good? They seem to play virtually anything but they seem a bit unstable and unreliable according to some of the reviews I have read.

Thanks all.

the 852 has been stopped (very hard to find)

i have a danasi 1010 when their first came out (play everthing )

i think on the new batchs of the 1010,952 ,their have disabled the vcd play back

if you are after a dvd player

why not try

i would highly recommend the
Cyberhome ADL528 Black (Multi-Region) for 100 pounds
plays everthing you want ,i doint think it is macrofree
and it is also in stock

for a multiregion dvd pretty cheap also,dvd players for about 100 pounds onwards

Daft question, but is there any way to un-disable (er, enable) the VCD playback on the newer 952 /1010 models?
