For under 100 bucks, a lot of people seem to like the Yamakawa 288
great picture for the price, though like most players in the price range its a little weak in deinterlacing. Its also multiregion.
Can be purchased at yamakawadirect, yamakawadvd, or ecost for $60
I’ve been reading about different peoples dvd player choices for a while now, as Ive been looking to upgrade to an upconverting player. You wont get the benifits of upconverting unless you own a hdtv, though, so I dont know if this pertains to you or not. Anyway, I think Ive narrowed down my choices to this little guy, the Momitsu V880, costing about $250
It’s an amazing little device. Plays just about every file format you could want, including divx / xvid, plus comes completely region free. The couple major downsides to it are that you need to buy it online, and the remote interferes with Pioneer equipment. Theres even a new model being released next month that will have network capability, so you can stream files off your computer.
