    After all my input to this forum about my love, then hate relationship with the 340e, and all the other threads on it's inability to play DVD-R's Play.com have agreed to take it back and refund or replace it.

    The age old question is what with?

    I've seen the Limit going at a friends and for the short time I was there it seemed very good in all respects.

    The Pio 575 is on here in abundance with all it's pros and cons.

    And just to add to it another friend took his £20 Ronin back to Richer Sounds and asked for a better all round player, and it must play DVD-R's. The guy sold him an Eltax 209 MR for £69 and told him it couldn't be beaten, even by the Limit.

    I haven't seen it going as he is a long way away, and it doesn't appear on Richers web site. I've searched here for it but can't find anything about it.

    Anyone know any more, good or bad.

    Or should I put up with my 220e until better things arrive?

    The signal is to be component feed to an Acer PD113 projector.

    Cheers

    I too bought a Tosh 340E but am having problems playing DVD-R's. I wish I had spent some time looking at these threads before buying. I'm now looking for a good quality player that WILL play all DVD-R's and has component output.

    And your friend believed the guy in RS?
    Was he also mis-sold a pension in the 90s and part owns a holiday flat on a building site in Tunisia?

    He may well have been, but do you know anything about this mysterious player?

    I bet RS don't sell the Limt a900se do they? so they might well say that.

    I've just found the 280 on the Eltax website, so maybe his is a 290 or a 280? The picture he has emaild me looks identicle.

    Anyone still the wiser? Know if it's good or bad?
