    +1/2 Mirror luxury finish :D
    + NTSC>PAL50 convertor:D

    Sorry if this a daft question, but what is the benefit of :

    I've just ordered a 220e, so am wondering if it's worth changing it to a 420.

    Cheers,

    Kris.

    It means if your TV doesn't support a NTSC signal, the DVD player can convert it to PAL50.

    Really depends on whether your TV can accept a NTSC signal or not (most modern ones do)

    If your TV didn't support NTSC, the most likely outcome is the picture would be black and white.

    Holtehero,

    Thanks, my Panny TV supports an NTSC signal so PAL50 isn't needed. Think I'll stick to the Tosh 220e.

    Cheers,

    Kris.

    Definitely the tosh 220.

    Ive been using the tosh 210 for a year and im more than happy with it.

    Also the tosh has component output which makes a big difference if you have a screen that can take advantage of it.

    Regards
