Subject: Tech: Which DVD player to buy?
Note: I'm a member here, but the person that I'm buying this for occasionally looks at Mudcat, and I'd prefer to keep it a suprise. Hence my anonymity.


I'm looking to buy a DVD player, but know very little about such things. I'm looking at the lower end of the market (money's quite tight).

I'm in the UK, and the two cheapest models at the Yamada DVD 5520 Multi-region and the Daewoo 9000S5 Multi-region would appear to offer everything that I'd want plus a lot more.

Most of Amazon's reviews for both these are very positive, but a few complain about the picture quality on both models. We're not real film buffs or technology snobs, so anything that is as good as a decent TV picture is good enough for me.

Anyone have any experience of the above models, or recommendations for other good cheap players?

Have you bought a player and regretted it later because it didn't have a certain feature?

Any help or advice appreciated. Thanks
