    Hi. have decided to purchase a Sony DVPNS 730 PS multiregion.

    I bought my last dvd player 3yrs ago from Techtronics but have been reading reviews/experiences and it seems appauling so have been put off.

    Who else can supply at a reasonable price / reliable / etc????

    Thanks.

    Ps, I understand the 730 is progressive scan??? What exactly does this mean as I am a newbie and havent been able to work my head around it!!!???

    Lots of info about progressive scan here :).

    Thre have been some negative comments about LEConcepts recently if you search, I asked about these people and got some positive replies, though I haven't bought from them yet.

    I've bought from Techtronics and www.avland.com. I haven't had any problems with the players so I can't comment on the after sales service.

    I just got my Sony 730 from Techtonics - ordered Monday 08/09/03, delivered Thursday 18/09/03. Took a while.

    Initial impressions are excellent though - PAL prog scan makes a clear difference to me, really happy with the picture - superb value at £139. Haven't tried an R1 disc yet.

    http://www.digital-point.co.uk are selling these at £129 now, which includes free next day delivery. Never used them though, so can't comment.

    Also ordered from Techtronic for £135.

    Placed order on Sunday, its now wednesday and I still don't think it has shipped yet.

    They do Multiregion it for you though, so maybe that is a delay in itself.

    Was expecting something a little faster on the delivery side, but i found a forum with quite a few positive remarks and they were only a fiver more on price.

    Hope I like it when it arrives!

    Kam.

    Pretty good service from AV-Land. You can ring to see if they have what you want in stock and either place an order over the phone or back on-line. I you place the order early enough you get it next the day.
