    Im after a good reliable, multi region budget player for tv use only. I have family arriving in a couple of weeks and want a player for the kids to use (I really dont want them using my h/c for the the odd kids cartoon ). When I last looked Toshiba were king of the budget pack, kicking out the 220 for around £100. Had aquick look on Amazon and players seem to start from about £30 :eek:

    So bearing in mind that I still demand a reasonable quality, robust machine any recommendations ??

    I'd go for a second hand, brand name. I bought one of those Amazon (Daytek) ones for my folks and it's appaling in every possible way.

    AMWP80L form www.dabs.com. There is a long thread on this player in the special offer forum. I cannot find fault in my machine, it plays everything I've thrown at it and it can be had for about £30 + del.

    Richer Sounds have the Tosh SD330E on sale for £50. Multi region is £60.

    If memory serves me right. I saw it on the weekend.

    The Pioneer DV360 multi-region is £70 from Richer Sounds if you go in an quote their website. Great player. It's available on Amazon Marketplace for only £45, but I opted for the convenience of buying from a real shop.

    Might as well buy the supermarket cheapos as you dont plan to use it for h/c tesco asda and somerfeild have a nice one at £30 ish at least with asda you have as good as a 100 day free trial and they will take it back no questions after that its a 3 year garantee.

    If you are near an ALDI store - £32:95 will buy you an amazing slimline bit of kit. Tevion TSDVD -1100.

    I bought it so that I could play CD's in the kitchen.
    For that price I could not buy a decent CD player. !
    Had problems with the first one I bought home.
    Replaced immediatly in store.
    Normally Aldi dont permamently stock the product. and seem to have this model available on a longer term
    As at Yesterday they still had stock in both the local (Wiltshire) stores. - Chums went out and bought them after seeing mine.
    Multi-region and plays DVD-R +DVD+R, MP3< all CD formats etc
    (see my last posting for more details)

    What's your problem with it? Mine arrived yesterday and it seemed to operate very well.
