Dear esteemed forum colleagues. I would like to make use of your many talents and knowledge.

I am looking to replace my dvd player, much cheapness and plenty quickness. It is also needing to play my bollywood flicks so the multiplier regions is what is needed isn’t it?

(I’m getting a full bells and whistles system when I move into my new pad in a few months so just need something to watch my ‘art’ :rolleyes: films in the interim, any suggestions?)

You want a cheapass one for sure, or something worth keeping?

I'm told 'upscaling' is the ticket at the moment - I'm looking at a Linksys KiSS DP-1600... links back to yer PC too so you can play back your downloads. V nice. Under £250. HDMI out etc.

I picked up an Alba DVD player for the kids. It cost the tidy sum of £14 from Sainsburys about 6 months ago.


It's not multi region, but at that price I don't care.

when did contractors get so tight ?
When the government (via the ONS) told the BoE that inflation was ~2.0% for the last decade.

Would that be this one:

I'd also suggest a modified XBox, as you can possibly get one for around £70, but that gets fiddly - install software etc etc.

That looks like the expensive version. The one I bought was even crappier. Mind you, it's still working which isn't bad seeing as it cost less than some of the DVDs it plays.

I got one of these puppies a while back too (maybe 12 months), not as much cheapness as you but I splashed out £20 on this cutting edge beast... for my particular model there is even a hack I found :nerd to make it multi region which bought many more happiness to self and 3 wives.

Sony DVD player (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-DVP-NS76H-Player-1080i-Upscaling/dp/B000F5SNS6/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/203-6108599-9943939?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1183711905&sr=8-1)
