    Been scouring the forum for advice. DVD player (mulit region of course) needed for bedroom to link to very impressive little Mikomi 17".

    Options seem to be:
    Alba - DVD65, supermarkets and web £29.99
    Philips DVP520, or its replacement DVP3005/05, £49.99 Tesco, Argos.
    Limit DVD800SE, in stock at Play.com for £44.99
    Limit DVDA900SE, again at Play.com for £49.99

    or a touch over budget:
    Sony DVPNS30, Amazon for £56.90
    Philips DVP630, or replacement DVP5100 £79.99 (not sure worth the extra)

    Are there any others I should be thinking of?

    And is there really any contest? I get the feeling the Limit option is the one but, if so, should I go old or new?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is audio playback a consideration at all? If so the Limit 900 model that Cyrus has tweaked will run rings around everything you've listed for audio playback CD wise and also supports DVD-A which is quite nice to have if exploitable ...
