    I have just seen pre-specs of an LG DVD player:

    Model: DF9931P

    Specs:
    SUPER SLIM DESIGN, VACUUM LOADING (SLOT MECHANISM), MULTI FORMAT PLAYBACK. (DVD-VIDEO/DVD-R/DVD±RW/SVCD/VCD. AUDIO CD. JPEG / KODAK PICTURE.) PROGRESSIVE SCAN, 10 IN 2 MULTI MEMORY CARD SLOT, MUSIC PHOTO ALBUM, HDMI, DOLBY DIGITAL DECODER. DIVX PLAYBACK

    EST.PRICE:140 euro

    Now either this spec is wrong or everyone is going to be able to get digital without having to pay 900 euros upwards for the Denon and Pioneer players.

    Anyone able to confirm this in Europe? :eek:

    Saw this model in Home CInema Choice magazine. I wonder if I should refund my 868 and get this instead....

    There are already players about with HDMI that are under €900, the panasonic S97 and Samsung HD-945. The Samsung HD-745 is cheaper, but only has dvi.

    Or am I missing the point of this post.

    LG have some pretty tidy DVD players available in Europe / Australia but not here :-(

    I've called LG to find out if they are coming out here but generally 'customer service' are rude and just hang up on you. If you email them you get a scripted answer regardless if it fits the question.

    Does anyone know a retailer in Europe that will ship electronics to the UK ? You'd think it would be easy all being in the EEC but its nigh impossible.

    I don't understand why LG range in the UK is so far behind France / Germany etc...

    PS that link to circuit city looks very similar to the DP8900P in Australia. A cracking cheap divx player as well.
