    I used RGB Direct. I ordered my Tosh 32WLT58 and Tosh SD350E by phone on Wed, paid for the 6 - 10 day delivery, got a phone call on the following Fri to say they would be delivering the next Mon three days early. Order arrived about lunchtime on the Mon all present and correct. Excellent service.
    'Spose you can only fully judge when they have to deal with faulty items but I've not seen any complaints so far.

    I think the SD350E gives a very good performance for a cheap stopgap player which enables you to take advantage of HDMI until Blu-Ray or HD/VD players become available. Be aware that RGB supply a multi region version of this player. Not sure how they do it but I do know there is a handset hack for it. My mate sent his back and got a region 2 replacement because he was getting intermittent pausing on playback via HDMI, a known problem apparently. Although I've now played a few DVD's R1 and R2 on mine and it has only happened once on Star Wars One. If you already have a decent DVD player may want to try it via component before taking the plunge.

    The one thing that does annoy me, and others I'm sure, is the very bright blue LED light that goes right across the disc tray. It can be turned off but you have to do it every time you turn the player on.
