  • Excerpt: I had been looking for a new dvd player, read the feedback and ordered this player. I am really glad I did - easy to set up, use and looks great. I only gave it 4 stars as the draw is a tad flimsy - hope it stands the test of time.

  • Excerpt: 2 problems... 1) it would play virtually no dvdr/dvdrw discs when other dvd players in the house play them well 2)though the picture was good via hdmi cable after 3 weeks it stopped transmitting through this cable, only outputing through the scart lead.

  • Excerpt: I have recently taken the plunge into Blu Ray and will be purchasing only these from now on but due to the fact that I have a massive number of standard DVDs I was not particularly keen to replace all my existing DVD titles with Blu Ray titles - pretty expensive to do that!!. When I saw this player advertised (along with the promises from Toshiba of near HD quality from standard DVDs) I decided to get hold of one. The result is, in the main, very good.

  • Excerpt: Though this product claims DVD +/- R/RW compatability, for me, it isnt. It will play none of the +R or +RW discs made on my Lite-On DVD recorder and only about 1 in 3 of the +R DVD discs made in my or other peoples computer recorder, despite the fact that these discs play fine in the other 3 ordinary, cheap-from-Asda DVD players I have in the house.

  • Excerpt: Bought this at a bargain price from Amazon (the price has risen again, why ??) but even if you pay full price for this baby, its worth the dosh... Using the sharp mode as well as HD upscaling, provides superb picture quality with any good quality standard DVD release, very, very close to genuine high definition viewing. As well as the unique sharp mode and 1080p upscaling, this machine will also do 1080p/24 frames per second, for standard DVD discs !!

  • Excerpt: I bought this amplified aerial to use in our caravan as many camp sites can have difficult reception. The performance is excellent and after I placed the order it arrived in a couple of days. I plugged it in and ir worked brilliantly. I will be looking at other products from Netgadgets as I have 100% confidence in the company.

  • Excerpt: Very impressed with this product, so simple to set up - literally takes just a few seconds and I now have excellent reception. It really does do everything that it says on the box! What I also liked was the speed of delivery - this came direct from the manufacturer `NetGadgets` and arrived within two days and there was no charge for postage!

  • Excerpt: Okay so i bought this dvd player after reading all the consumer reviews. I also checked out what the experts had to say on what hi fi audio website. they said that it was the best upscaling dvd player they have seen but the audio was a bit of a letdown. A BIT????? I was gobsmacked when I plugged in the player, set it up & popped in a dvd. The sound was awful compared to the same disc playing through my ps3. take titanic for example...

  • Excerpt: I was looking to replace an older indoor antenna and I bought this product after reading the reviews on Amazon. I was not disappointed, it is a fantastic product. The reception I now receive is as good as any outdoor antenna. Great value for money too. I can recommend this product very highly.

  • Excerpt: I bought this because our external antenna had too weak a signal (even when run with a booster) to allow it to be split between freeview box and a DAB tuner. This Thomson antenna however gives a great signal for either freeview or DAB. I had expected it to be inferior in quality to the external one, but so far it has not broken up at all. Thinking of buying another now for our portable tv in the back room that has never had good reception.
