    Just had my Pioneer 435XDE delivered, now need a HDMI DVD player to compliment it.

    What are the preferred players of choice at the moment? Any I should avoid?

    TIA

    Hi David,

    As you will see from my signature, I use a Panasonic S97 HDMI player with my Pioneer Plasma and must admit to being delighted with it - however, the S97 is really at the lower end of the pricing market and, as such, the best advice is always to have a look around and see what best suits your budget and taste.

    Best of luck in your search.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Thanks Martin, I was just looking at the reviews of the s97.

    It does seem great value for money as I have found it for £150. If anything such a cheap price puts me off a little :) I can't win!

    Budget of around £400, but I am happy to spend £150 if the results are still good.

    I got the panasonic s97 too for when I use my panny 700 projector which is HD compatable - it is impressive. the image scaling is effective (mostly noticable on straight lines, building, text, titles etc.) it'll keep me happy for another 6 months or so until HD-DVD comes out...

    i paid 150 quids for it and would recomend it.

    Playing with an Op DVD player. (See other thread). I bought one to use while my 4 years old Tag player is away for repair. I am quite surprised with both the video and audio ability. I would find it very difficult to justify spending more if most of these 'low' cost players now a days are so good. DVD players quality and what it need to do appear to be still evolving very fast then say CD players which on the other hand doesn't really appear to have changed at all or genuinely improved in the same period of time.

    Yeah, I know what you're saying but kit is getting so good these days for not a load of dosh, perhaps you should just go with the flow and get one. You know, I read The_Munter's comments above and think they make a lot of sense.

    Anyway, as said before, best of luck with your search, and please let's know what you settle on.

    Cheers,

    Martin.
