For years I have been looking for something to replace my Samsung 709. My only requirements are 2xSCARTS and SVCD support. As it likely that there will be huge changes in DVD players over the next few years, I don't want to spend too much and have set a budget of around £300. Its clear that in a few years there will be all singing- all dancing models, but I wantSVCD now. So, I am willing to spend £300 now which will tide me over for a few years. I was waiting on the Toshiba 510, which is slightly over budget, but as the 210 doesn't have what I want, then I would have no choice but to get the 510. But I have started to look at the Pioneer range, which has a nice player, with no DVD-A, which is pretty much what I want. I got the following prices: 444 £230 545 £280 - The same as the 444 but better remote and 2xSCARTs 646 £499 - Better gubbins (video decoders etc) and DVD-A. Apparantly, the only difference between the 444 and 545 is the remote (which I don't need as I have the Pronto) and the extra scart. There is £50 difference, which is a lot for the SCART, but I can just write that off as a necessity. My supplier has told me that they don't think much of the 545, because it doesn't offer enough over the 444 to justify the extra cash.. But as I said, its £50 and for the extra SCART its worth it to me.. But they are doing an offer on the 444/646 This puts the prices as 444 £200 545 £280 646 £420. Its clear that the 444 and 646 are the bargins.. But i don't want either.. However £80 for the extra Scart is false economy.. If I spend the extra £80 I might as well spend a further £130 and get DVD-A and the better gubbin. But getting a player for £420 takes it out of the 'disposible' catagory. Plus, I was always waiting on the new Toshiba which I like better than the Pioneer.. If I go Tosh, they only have 2 models.. the 210 at £160 which doesn't do what I want, or the 510 at £500 which does everything (Too much).. Whilst I wouldn't use all the features of the 510, I would have no choice.. Its either the 210 or the 510. When I saw the Pioneer 545, I was pleased as it did everything that I wanted. It was middle of the road.. It didn't have features that I didn't want and was within my budget! I can afford the 646.. Its just that I don't like wasting money on things that I don't really want... Does anyone have any info which might help me choose?
