I needed a cheap DVD player for karaoke nights. Nothing fancy - just needs to play CDs, VCDs CD-R/w and DVDs. Having seen all this talk about £99 machnes I was off to Richer Sounds to get a Cyber Home. I tried it and found that on VCDs it frequently stops playing or blanks out for a second or two. Also if too many buttons are pressed it can lock up (surely it doesn't run under Windows!) Also the PCM output does not work with a CDGraphics decoder. I took it back and was offered an LG for $119. Man in shop said it worked better than the Cyberhome which was known to have problems with VCDs. In fact the LG didn't play VCDs at all and stripped off the graphics info from the PCM data stream. Took it back and got money back. Friendly service from Richer Sounds BTY. Next to Sevenoaks. This time a Pioneer 343 for £169. - with an 11 day trial period. This worked well and even plays home made VCDs. I'll keep it. The moral is "If you buy cheap you get cheap!"
