    The Mico Celo is multi out of the box for £100 at Sainsburys. Has all the connections you need and does the job. Budget build feel to it though, but if you're not fussy..............

    Hi Benji

    Yep, That's the best deal I found. Previous Apex players have had handset hacks for Multi-Region and Macrovision disable. Guess I'll search the net quickly on this one then pop down the supermarket.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Cheers

    Just picked up a Bush DVD2024 from Tesco for £85

    Multi region straight from the box including RCE ones!
    Selectable raw NTSC output or PAL conversion.
    Not bad looking considering the price.
    Very quiet mechanism.
    Good on screen menu's.

    Can't fault it for the price

    Mark,

    Lidl stores are currently doing a weekly special on a Supervision 2550 dvd player which is advailable in silver and black and according to the box plays Mp3 and supports DTS as well as having Dolby digital decoding and seperated line outputs and component video connections, all for £69.00:eek:

    Don't know if it's multi-region though although most cheap players are.

    Just bought the Cyberhome 402 for a Christmas present, can play everything and had won the group test in one of the Home Cinema mags out this month. Also does a slideshow of JPG pics from a CDR handy for those with digi cameras. £79.99 from Whsmith.

    Alternatively, TJ Hughes has an LG DVD Player with a leaflet to send off for 3 dvd's free and that's £89.99 (it was £79.99 but TJ Hughes' sale has just ended....just in time for Christmas!). The model is a 5183.

    Hope this helps.
