I wrote this review to justify this item's overall rating, as its 1 star right now due to the guy below (or above me) whining about the place he ordered it from (Pixmania), and not getting a UK plug and ultimatley putting off prospective buyers.
Right, i'll make it quick.
The DVD player just works, as any should now days straight out of the box. Simple scart lead (not provided so get a spare) into your TV and power cord into wall. If you want a little extra quality through the HDMI connection, and you have a HDTV then use a HDMI cable (also not provided).
I havent used the upscaling feature yet so i cant comment but as with most, it wont be a big step up from DVD, for the true high def experience you need HD content. But for £63 i dont mind my DVDs being upscaled.
The DivX is great, i have a few films i have on my PC and i can now watch them on my TV anytime. Just copy the file onto a USB stick if its above 700mb and plug it into the players front port (usb 2.0 as well), and it plays smoothly off that (my usb stick is good quality, 1gb about £15 so i didnt notice any skipping, but could happen with cheaper drives). Or you can also just copy the file onto a blank CD using Windows copy to disc and it plays no prob on the player. You just navigate to the file using a folder tree system.
Overall 5 stars, did everything i wanted it too. Looks good, very slim. Simple to use interface menus, good price - recommended.
