    Safeways are selling the Compacks 4000 (I think) at £45 approx.

    I've heard the 5000 kicks ass, so what are the differences between the two ?

    Sampo make the DVD5000, Coby make the DVD4000, the hacks for the players are identical (both use a Mediatek chipset).

    Essentially, the 4000 is a smaller player, otherwise they're virtually identical in terms of media and file compatibility.

    That also means they share the same faults, particularly inability to playback seamless branching titles without a stutter (both audio and video) otherside of the branch.

    Some 5000s have had earthing problems (small electric shocks to the user - not life-threatening but still not very pleasant !).

    Not a great deal in it, to be honest
