    I'm looking for a cheap DVD player for a small portable 4:3 TV. What's the best available for around 50 quid? It must be multi region capable without chipping. The ability to play DivX media would be a bonus but isn't necessary. DVD-Audio and SACD aren't at all necessary. If there's nothing worth spending £50 on, what would a budget of £70 get?

    Is this Scan Ellion model any good? What about this Umax/Yamada player? They're just random choices. Feel free to slate them and suggest others!

    cheers,
    Ben

    How about the Philips DVP 630 DivX Multi Region Capable DVD Player, 65 quid at amazon? Supports PAL-progressive, DivX and "Video Upsampling is a high-quality processing technique that dramatically omproves the picture quality by eliminating the so-called "mosquito noise" and the other distortions caused by MPEG video compression that are visible on average DVD players."

    Alternatively, a multi-region Sony for 50 quid:

    Sony DVP-NS355 Multi-region DVD Player

    or a DivX-compatible Yamada for 55:

    Yamada DVX6700 DVD Player MPEG4 Compatible (Slim)

    (sorry for not posting direct links - I don't know if the URL's at Amazon include some personal information - don't want to give people access to my shopping cart :p )
