    I have just bought a budget dvd player to last me until after I get my projecter,(as then i will buy an Arcam or somting like that)
    Its a Panasonic dvs35.£90
    In my opinion its the best player for the money.
    Great picture
    Solid sound(only optical not coax)
    MP3,Vcd,dvd ram, dvd,r, multi region out of da box (Richer sounds)
    Better build IMPO than the tosh 330,
    and better sound then the pioneer 330.
    great looking.
    the all important componant out.
    I consider myself as quite picky when choosing a dvd player,
    but with a shortage of cash, du to projecter and my old dvd player not having componant out. I need a new, cheap, good player. this is it.
    This is the only one that would do me for under a ton.

    The Toshiba 330 is good value for money I got my parents one from Amazon £79.99.
    Although I played a photo CD out of a newspaper on it and although played the horizontal pics OK the vertical ones moved up the screen, but this could be due to some setting I have not got right yet.

    I think it is better built than most of the competition for sub £100 competition. Granted it is not a heavy weight but that is is no indication of build quality.
