What do you guys use? What is an inexpensive model (for a college guy) that can play dvd+rw? Thanks.
I'd go with cyberhome - cheap and play anything you throw it at....
Have not come across any issues with my ch402 - old version now I think....
I bought an APEX dvd player that plays most everything, including dvd+rw.
Since the least expensive DVD players are usually the same ones that use DVD ROM drives, most, if not all, of the cheap ones you find will be compatible with not only +/-R, but also SVCD and MP3 at the least. I personally own an APEX (too lazy to go look up the model # right now). I recommend checking out http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers for more details. This link will take you to their forums where you can get a lot more information on various people's experiences with specific players. http://www.dvdrhelp.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8&sid=f35065d36a5670d83f5654be5c25df7a
Any new DVD player out that is cheap will probably do fine. Im using a Samsung DVDS224 with no problems to date with -R on Riteks. Princo's can make it a good bit slower. I've just bought a £47 Plu2 DVD player with Progressive scan in an auction on Ebay. Normally these sell for £119.99. I bought it cuz it has a brand new loader in it which means it will play anything (plus it has a really cool blue display).
My advice is to take a dvd+/-R and ask the assistant if you can try it works for me

I have a Samsung DVD Player and it is excellent, plays ANY media I have tried, the only thing that it doesnt play is mpeg-4! that kinda sucks but then again most stand alones dont play it anyway!
Dela, have a look at the following:
Scroll down, you'll find a nice standalone divx etc.....Don't know how good it is - but seems like a reasonable price....
Ye i have seen quite a lot of nice looking players lately that support divx they'll sell very fast I reckon!
Anyone actually played a DivX in a Stabndalone, because i have heard some poor reports about the quality?
nope but I heard good things oriphus, I have heard good things about the kiss dvd player but bad bad things about tv out and have seen tv out and it sucks!
Yeah, i've used TV out and its pretty dire. The new Elta DVD player plays Xvid too which is pretty cool.
You ever used Plu2 DVD Players. They are very very good. It will play virtually any disc you throw at it. I've just got one.
The Kiss standalone player only plays divx 4 and 5 i believe and whatsmore, it says its progressive scan, but not for PAL just NTSC, wich make that feature pretty usless here :>(
oh and ORIPHUS your £47 Plu2 DVD player with Progressive scan machine , does it have component out ?
No i have a samsung oriphus and it plays most of what i throw at it!
Dela, i have a Samsung DVDS224 and love it. it plays stuff that no other players, bar the Plu2 play.
Here are the connections:
Component Video (YcbCr),
Composite Video (CVBS),
2x Digital Out (optical and coaxial),
5.1 Surround (6x)
Im not sure wjhat samsung i got because i threw the box away and am too lazy to check the player itself since it is in between a VCR and satellite reciever
You lazy Bugger lol
Hey you come down here and move them and see that bloody "no satellite signal is being recieved" message and then spend 20 minutes trying to fix the input cable lol. Damn sky digital cant do anything right!
