With its simple good looks and its very watchable screen, Daewoo has created an excellent mid-range player, capturing the space between the basic-but-cheap Hannsg and the fully-featured LG model.
The £85.99 price tag means the controls on the DPC-7209PD include old school dial-wheels to handle volume and brightness, but at sub-£100 it’s the screen that impresses the most.
Watching action sequences in The Incredible Hulk is, ahem, smashing as they retain their sense of grandeur even on such a small device.
That’s carried over with the sound, too, with the Daewoo kicking out some awesome audio.
And the option to play files from a USB stick or an SD card makes this a great player to own if you’re into downloads.
Throw in a relatively quiet running noise and a compact form factor that’s extremely light and portable and this is an excellent choice if the £199 LG is out of your price range.
