See if you can source a Pioneer player. The 380 series are good value for money and built to last. They play DivX

The brand to avoid is Toshiba. They used to make excellent players but then switched manufacturing to China. You are lucky if they last a year without a problem.

Ok so heres the deal.

which dvd player plays most formats but is the cheapest. But also keep in mind that my parents and sister usually rent dvd's. So Its ok if I buy a cheaper player with a format or two not supported.

brands to look at are

Onida
Philips
Sony
Pioneer

now which model should I be looking forward to?

You need to look for the Philips DVD Model # DVD-DVP5106K/97.
Thats the one that Rtech was talking about with the SLOT LOADING instead of the tray loading.
Got mine in Bombay a week ago for 4600 from Vijay Sales

I would cross Onida off the list if you want a player with good build quality. The onida player is likely to be just a generic player with average components.

Pioneer DV 380 K (black) or the DV 380 S (silver). http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/product_...onomy_id=45-64 for full spec.

Pioneer easily the first choice, Sony second. The only advantage I see with Sony is it would come with warranty...But then my Pioneer is I guess around 18months old and not a single problem, touchwood.

sony all region ones are very costly.

My dad has the same model too. Excellent video and audio quality. Especially if u can hook it up to a Trinitron Wega using Component Video cables.

The last post is more than a year old now - any new DVD players in the market since then? I'm looking for something less than 5K, to be attached to a normal CRT telly. Are Philips and Pio still the best available?
