    Im in a dilemma,

    I need a budget dvd player, and I have come to the conclusion of either buying the :-

    Pioneer DV-454
    or
    Sony DVP-705


    I have a budget of £200* (*MAX)

    What would you choose if you were offered one of the two ?

    It will be used to CD music as well as dvds...

    (if no one has used the DVP-705, please comment on you DVP-700s)

    BTW is there anything other DVD player I should Seriously consider?

    How about a Toshiba SD420 for around £160? It has a built in DD decoder and component video out (good if you get a component tele). It is a cracking player and 1 step up from the fantastic SD220. If you don't need DD then the 220 is basically the same.

    I would choose the Pioneer. Never been a fan of Sony products apart from portables and TVs. I also just bought a Pioneer DV-350 (for €200, roughly £130) so I had something whilst my Philips DVDR-890 is being repaired and it's a cracking machine so I would imagine that the higher spec 454 would be even better.

    I agree. I have lost faith in Sony over the last couple of years. Their products are just not as exciting as the competition. If its a choice betwixt the two, go for the Pioneer.

    I havent seen either of those players..... but i do tend to favour pioneer. Sony's stuff seems to cost as much for the name as it does the performance..... well thats my view.
