Needed to pickup a cheap DVD player for a present. And found a bargain.... Medion MD40288 Multi-region DVD Player Link to Amazon £39.99 delivered from Amazon if you use their free shipping option. Came it two days (says 3 to 5). Plays practically everything out of the box including MP3, VCD, SVCD and photo cd. It is multi region although the box says R2 (handset hack below if you need it). Build quality is surprsing good and it even looks pretty good too. Nice slim silver model. Not tried it on my 36 inch TV or the projector, don't want to know if it is better than my more expensive players! But on the office 25" TV it looks great. Excellent present or bedroom unit. Absolute steal at the price and I thought I'd pass it on. Cheers Marc Handset hack for multiregion if required... 1. Open the drive. 2. Press 'Clear'. 3. Enter the numbers '1', '3', '6', '9', and then '0'. 4. Finally press 'Standby'
