my mate got 2 or 3 of them from cash convertors of all places. he has to travel about sometimes as part of his job and he likes to checkout second hand places to find rare records, cds and stuff. he even has a fairly cool eight track collection and player. he gave me a pretty decent dual pioneer ntsc/pal player with digital output as my sony wouldn't play the mostly ntsc discs i had

thing is i originally got the laserdiscs as the specific material i wanted wasn't available on dvd and didn't look like it was going to ever come out, but a few titles have finally been released and i managed to get fanboy dvd captures of most of the rest of the stuff, so you should consider if you really need one that much, particularly is dvd is slowly on the way out and old titles are available really cheaply

it is nice to pull out the original star wars on laserdisc to show people, but you can get it on dvd now so it's not as great as it once was

I got that on LD. Before it was copied from the LD masters onto DVD, it was getting £100 plus on ebay. Recently, my NTSC playing player broke down and now I can't play them. They are now worth about £10 for all three films now.

I still have a older player but only does PAL discs and I have to turn the sides over.

I was paying up to £35 for a LD and now they are worth nothing.

If the player your talking about is the Pioneer CLD-S310 you linked to in your last post, than it should play NTSC discs too.

Sony LD players have a habit of breaking down.
