    As it's my birthday today, I got a total of £80 in all the cards I recieved. One birthday wish was granted when we got 3 points off the blues at ER today so with the money I thought I'd go get a DVD player. One that'll play dvd-r's of course. Any suggestions?

    Is your total budget £80? If so get youself to ASDA or Tesco.

    You could try the currents sales.

    Good Luck

    If you could scrape together another £39:95 you could get yourself a Multi-region Toshiba SD 220E from Richer Sounds.

    Just got one myself and its a cracking player, good connectivity and plays R1-6 (RCE), CDR-CDRW's, & MP3's excellent picture and sound quality to boot.

    Definitely better than some of the so-called bargains from the superstores.

    If you can double th £80 then a Pioneer 444 (Which is what I have) seems to be happy with any brand DVD-R. I have thrown all sorts at it without a grumble. Haven't tries the old 78s yet though. Happy birthday. malcom.

    The best deals for cheap DVD player is the Dansai from Tesco.
    This DVD has the best functionaly arround and beats lots of set 3 times the price.
    DVD, MP3, MPEG, CDR, CDRW, VCD, SVCD, Digital video and audio out, Fibre optic audio out.
    Can easily be made into muliregion using key presses.

    These set cost arround £80 - £100.

    The sets are made for Tesco and there is not much information on the net. The best site is:

    Thanks for the help, guy's, but my wife has changed my mind:rolleyes: Getting the panny E30 for xmas was great and I can't really swing it for another dvd player. Ordered a few books from Amazon instead.
