Lightbulb I need a new DVD player, any recommendations?

I need a new home DVD player. NTSC. It will also be my default home stereo cd player. I just want one disk, not a multi-changer, and for god's sake it must be quiet and of course play all formats (+/-/dual-layer). Does anybody have a specific recommendation?????????????

if you want it to play all formats, then go to Walmart or similar and get one of those $40 no-name brands [Apex, Norcent, GoVideo, etc]

actually that model will only play DVD-R/W, and not DVD+R/W...

in addition, many players will only play DVD-Video discs and not "data discs"--i.e. DVDs burned as DVD-ROM (ISO) or DVD-ROM (UDF)...then there's the whole NTSC or PAL, but not both...as for this particular model, i'm not sure about the last two "issues"...just thought i'd throw it out there

here's the specs:

ah, missed that salient point from the OP. Although to my knowledge, most modern dvd players handle DVD-rom discs easily.That is why most "bitsetting" DVD burner firnmwares allow you to set it to be DVDrom equivelent .

Here's me, preparing to be wrong--->

I myself use the wondeful OPPO dvd player which seems to be able to play anything short of a tin can lid!

Re: I need a new DVD player, any recommendations?

I bought a Phillips DVP-642 for my gf a few months ago and we've been very pleased with it. plays NTSC/PAL DVD as well as DiVX/XviD .AVI files burned to a Data DVD or CD. got it for around $60 at WalMart.

the Phillips can be picky as far as divx playback. I too own one, but was disappointed overall with it, as many of the files I had would not play correctly.
There are plenty of threads on this player on various video forums . For other than divx playback, it is a decent unit for the $$
