RRP around £250. Can be picked up for about £130 on the high street. Got mine from Miller Bro for £119. All the features are great. Superb picture and sound when used with extra speakers. Loads of outputs (Dolby 5.1, optical, s-video and scart). Features include DVD,SVCD,VCD,CD,MP3 and Karaoke. Cant ask for much more at £250. Get it cheaper and its more of a bargain. Also easy to make multi region. (read more)
