    what display will you be using? Different players are better for different types of display

    Was in Musical Images in Beckenham the other day and they had the HK 25 for 175.

    I have nothing to do with M.I.

    Toshiba make some great players for a lot less than £200 and that's including component out(if you have a display that takes component in).

    Toshiba release the SD 240E this week which is Progressive scan out on PAL and NTSC, for how much I hear you cry £65.00 (Even if you don't need those what a bargain !!)

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Sure mate, don't know who they are but if you search on the net and are familiar with a supplier then it's something to think about.

    I have had Tosh DVD players since the year dot and they never fail to impress. I fancy one too for my Plasma, but the 500 SD looks tempting at £180 which has a 3:2 pull down on progressive NTSC material.

    probably one of the more expensive toshibas is ideal..... I doubt prog scan really matters since i doubt the tv can accept it

    Well, Richer sounds are doing the Pioneer 565 for £148 now. IMO they are an absolute steal at that price and I was so impressed with the first one, I bought another for the bedroom!

    The toshiba mentioned above is also well worth a look, especially at £65!

    Can anyone explain what "3:2 pull down on progressive NTSC material" means, please? :confused:
    (I'm intending to play on Panny PW6 plasma, if it's relevant.)
