Hellllllo Sorry you guys prob get asked this a lot... I did look thru the forums but still can't decide..... Heres the requirements: 1) Proper support with regular upgrades. Had my fingers burnt with yamada 6000 before... they stopped upgrades 1 month after I bought it (firmware from dec 2003!!!) so it hardly plays anything and when it does its out of sync. 2) Spend about 100 pounds tops. looked at xbox - with xmbc too pricey as I don't play games. Kiss players seem bit pricey - are they really worth upto 4x the cost of others? 3) Decent brand with good mechanical and simple ui design. Found yamada was crap mechanics - discs got stuck a few times and the user iterface and remote are shocking..... 4) Flexibility with media. Yamada 6000 was pretty fussy, only plays certain dvd-rs. Most promising at scan (http://www.scan.co.uk/search/search.asp?criteria=divx) looks like the nissan. Also cheap at microdirect http://www.microdirect.co.uk/ProductLister.aspx?Stockcode=divx is the......ahem yamada...... or better to buy both?!!?
