DVd Player choice question

My new Panasonic AE500 projector is showing up my supermarket cheapo Pacific player.
Do not wish to spend silly money on a replacement.
I require multi region and progressive scan, on Pal as well.

Looked at Richer Sounds web site as all thier players are MR, and thier prices are good.

2 of the cheapest are the Yamaha DVDS540, but it's
available in store only, and Marantz DV4300.
Those of you that have these are you happy with them?
If I get the choice when I go to the store which is the better?
If not liked by you, your next best please.

I have the 540 and like it, although I bought it as my 565 is dodgy with R1 RGB.
It is a no frills dual prog scan machine easily made multiregion and solved my above problem.
On my standard tv the PQ is great, some have complained of ghosting with PS, but it seems some kit will not work with each other.
Is your 500 DVI compliant? If so why not start looking for a suitable player( Samsung 935 £135 ) but again CHECK what resolutions each display, I have read of upscaling mis matches causing line structure and judder problems.

How long are your cables between the Samsung DVD and the Panasonic AE500 when useing this DVI connector?

When useing component I have 10 mtrs, but might have to extend by a couple of mtrs more.
