    My second Acoustic Solutions AS-8099 failure :thumbsdow - These £24.99 players from Argos I used to think were the best budget players ever but I've found all of them seem to just 'die' for no reason after a few months (No disc error) and also they suffered from out of sync audio on DVD-R playback.

    Anyway, I'm looking for a DVD player around £25 - £40 if possible. It must be able to play lots of formats (i.e. -R, +R, MP3 DVD etc) and be multi region. I want it to look quite attractive but not too big (Acoustic dimensions : Size (H)4.8cm, (W)36cm, (D)25.5cm. - If I can get a width equal to or slightly below 36cm it would be ideal, not 100% neccessary though).

    Now I have £29.99 in Argos credit at the moment (£24.99 player and £5 gift voucher), do they do any good players for the price bracket or should I ask for a cash refund and shop elsewhere?
