    Hi

    My sister-in-law wants me to get for my brother a DVD player for his birthday (he has been nagging her for one for ages!).

    The budget I have is £150.00.

    Now they are not likely to ever get any surround sound system or anything like that so all I need is a DVD player which gives the best picture for the money through a normal TV and also the best sound through the TV aswell.

    Cheers
    Greg

    Oops. Forgot to mention Multi-region might be useful aswell.

    £150 for a Tosh SD210 Region 2 only isn't out of the question. Multiregion you're adding about another £40 on top of that. If £150 is your absolute, total limit, and you're only after a machine for spinning DVDs and not VCD's and MP3 discs or CD-R etc, then I can't recommend the Samsung M105 enough personally. £150 from www.multiregionmagic.co.uk, fully modified. Bought one for the 'rents for Xmas and it plays everything thrown at it, including all RCE discs so far, automatically. Brilliant picture, great sound.

    Alternatively there's the Tosh SD110, same as the SD210 but more basic. Still the top class picture and sound.

    Costco are selling The Tosh 210e for £152. Be aware though that it is R2 only. Performance is outstanding for the price imho.

    You might like to try the LG 4930, its like the What HiFi? magazine recommended LG 4950 but minus the Dolby Digital decoding, (if you later decide to go for a surround system then your AV amp will likely include this anyway) any way it is easily hackable using the supplied remote to multiregion, can play MP3s and comes in a good looking silver box.

    Get it for about £130 including VAT and delivery from

    Incidentally I've got one from them and the picture is excellent, but remember to get a fully wired scart lead to connect it using the RGB signals, for the best picture. One word of advice give them a call to order to make sure its in stock.
