    I was about to say that "cheap" often doesn't equate to "goo" or even "resonable" from my limited experience and reading.

    My cheapo £55 from Safeway Compacks 5000 does Prog Scan, and picture on ae100 looks good ( to me anyway ). Also seems to be Macrovision and region free.

    At this price bracket you are probably better off putting your money towards a DVD player that does not necessarily offer progressive scan, but instead a reaonable picture quality. Yes you can get progressive scan for less than £200 but progressive scan alone does not make a good DVD player.

    Keep in mind the display you are using as well. If you have a progressive scan TV it will be capable of displaying the quality of machines way beyond this price bracket. If you haven't got a progressive scan TV why bother? And if you are using anything larger than a TV, like a plasma for example, a DVD player in this bracket is like putting remoulds on a Porshe.

    Just a few thoughts. There are some good and pretty cheap players out there but don't get too caught up in buzz words unles you are going to benefit from them!
