    Hi - I'm looking into the small portable DVD players. There are a bunch around £200 or so and I wondered if anyone had any experience with them. I specifically want (i) multi-region - but don't mind hacking it - and (ii) VCD play.

    I've seen:
    Venturer PS166W - 200 quid in Argos:

    Mustek PL207 - £240 at dabs:
    http://www.dabs.com/uk/productView.htm?quicklinx=2VH9
    (there's also a PL205 at dabs for £190 but I don't think this does MR or VCD: http://www.dabs.com/uk/productView.htm?quicklinx=2VH8)

    Goodmans GDV60 - £200 at Richer Sounds:

    Any views on these or other portables welcome!

    I have the venturer for few days now - excellent for the money.

    Definately region freeable and vcd mod from the handset.

    Comet do one for £180 which I'm tempted by as it has a video in socket. Not sure if it's hackable but I would expect it to be very likely as it's similar to the players you've listed.

    Hi,

    The Mustek pl207 can be had for £234.99 from www.webelectricals.co.uk, noticed Dabs.com had it down as a 1-2 week wait for it, dont know about stock levels at webelectricals though

    I had a look at the Venturer player, which Woolworths are also selling and it looked a bit "chunky" for my liking.

    Novatech also do one, here

    Cheers
    Baz
