    The Starlogic Multi-region 2.1 DVD Player is apparently selling like hot cakes but has mixed reviews. I'm not surprised given how cheap it is. I suppose its worth risking £20.

    Has anyone here used or seen it in action? I'm v tempted

    The 2.1 means that it is stereo only so not DD or DTS. Personally I wouldn't waste the 20 quid. Spend a bit more & get a player capable of 5.1 & of playing DivX too. Our local supermarket has some cheapo ones at just 44 Euros or about 30 pounds.

    As a second player for a tv in the bedroom can't be beaten Nuff said.

    I actually used one of these players thru my PJ for a short time onto a 2m screen and I was pleasantly surprised how reasonable the image was.

    Not perfect but watchable.

    i had one briefly and my friend has one too and even on normal tvs the lipsync is out! all the time!
    the 2.1 means it has 2.1 pre-outs (i.e. it decodes stereo), but the bitstream (optical/coaxial) is still full dolby digital/dts i believe
    on the plus side it has coaxial/optical/scart/composite/svideo and even component outputs!
