Hello everyone,

I finally convinced myself to buy a DVD player. I have checked several shops and boy, I really don't know which one to choose. My budget is in the region of €120.
I also don't know a thing about those players, so what are the things I have to check for if I'm going to buy one? For me a DVD player just have to play DVD's, nothing more Big grin
Yesterday I took a look around in a shop called 'Mediamarkt' and they sold DVD players for €50! It was a Daytek M700-M. I have never heard about that brand, maybe someone here can tell me his or her experience with that machine  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Best regards,

Tom

Well, I am also in the market for a DVD player, and I'm looking for the least expensive that I can find. My friend bought one from Target called "CyberHome" for $50. I will probably purchase that one as well.

I just bought one and love it. I got a Panasonic PVD744S. It is a DVD/VHS combo, which is good b/c I have a fair number of movies on VHS, and to buy the combo was cheaper. Total cost was $160... plus I bought an S-Video cable, and I still need to pick an A/V cable to patch the audio into my TV.

If you're like me and intend to slowly upgrade your a/v equipment overtime I'd would suggest against buying the cheapest one that is on promo at your local grocery store. You want it to at least have S-Video or Component Video outputs, having digital outputs would be the best for future growth. SO it might be worth stepping up a level or two to get a slightly better model... which still means you'll not be spending much more than $100 for a decent unit.

Hi Tom! Big grin

I agree with DesertJets! The DVD market is still in a big evolution (certainly price wise, also quality wise), so I would now buy the cheapest thing available and buy a better one within maybe 5? years. Or a bit earlier when your cheap one doesn't last 5 years Big grin

I recently bought a small home theater system by Pioneer with 6 speakers and a 5 disc changer. sounds really sweet.

but since you're going with the player only, I guess a good buy would be the DVD/VHS player since most of us still have good porn on VHS around the house.

Look for a DVD player that can also play DVD/R and CDRW. S-Video output is good too, but only if your tv has an S-Video input, otherwise you have to use the rca jacks.

happy shopping.
