Buying the  Right  DVD Player for  Your  TV

If you have a regular (non-digital and not HDTV) TV then you do not need, nor will you benefit from, expensive DVD Player features like progressive scan and component connections.

Your current TV should have audio/video jacks (composite) or an s-video jack. So, for now, go for the best sale you can find on most any inexpensive model of any brand. I paid less than $80 for mine and it is serving me well. After I upgrade my TV next year when HDTV "actually" is available in my city, I will buy the latest-greatest DVD player available at that time. In the meantime, I am having a great time viewing the best picture my TV can display and the CooL "peep" controls almost aLL DVD players provide like:

(1) Very fast & very clear fast scan - forward & reverse;
(2) Go directly to a scene;
(3) ZOOM IN which IS worthwhile SOMETIMES;
(4) A-B repeat of a scene YOU choose - The Voyeur's favorite feature:
(5) Great CLEAR variable slow motion - also a favorite feature;
(6) eXtras that are on most DVDs; and
(7) THE BEST - you do N0T have to r~e~w~i~n~d DVDs.

Amazon has some excellent players to choose from, so start right here.

Of course, my favorite is my Digital Video Recorder - I use it constantly.  Easy to use and program and recording to temporary or permanent DVDs is fast & flawless.  NO coasters and I have now recorded over 100 DVD-Rs.  Easy to record from tapes, TV, or other DVDs that are not copy protected. Models like mine with a hard drive are far easier to use.  New LOW price! (FREE shipping too)  If you want to record directly from your camcorder, then Model Panasonic DMR-E100HS is recommended with several " media readers" built-in.  Sometimes  Wal-Mart offers a lower price when they have it in stock but the bottom line cost has been consistently lower at Amazon.com  and  Circuit City .  More Info    Be sure to check out the automated DVD organizers at Tiger Direct.  

Region Free DVD Players have become a necessity to view many of the world's best romantic and exotic movies.  Don't be ripped off -- buy for less from reliable dealers.  Latest Info  

Yes, you can easily make copies of your tapes and DVDs, even copy protected ones.  INFO

iPods have become even better and what a great selection of models to choose from.  Read the latest info  

If you already have a digital TV then 'Toshiba SD4700 Progressive-Scan DVD-Video/DVD-Audio Player' is an excellent value as is Toshiba SD-3750.

For DVD storage I stayed away from open towers and chose a storage album that would protect my new investment like 'Case Logic DVA40 Koskin DVD Album (40-Capacity)'     And be sure to check out the automated DVD organizers at Tiger Direct.

Not pictured but a great quality VCR value is  SONY's model SLV-N71 .  Buy the way I noticed it also is ranked highly by Consumer Reports.    Click here for the latest models.

Your smart, put on my "Brooks Brothers" everyday professional, yet wonderfully demented - - Video Voyeur & CinemaVoyeur.

CONVENIENCE  -  NO LATE FEES  -  GREAT SELECTION  -  PRIVACY
I have used each of these online DVD rental services and they work as advertised.  Their success with hundreds of thousands of users is the strongest recommendation.  I have a BlockBuster just 3 miles away but I still saved TIME as well as MONEY by getting my movies delivered to my door and picked-up FREE, as well.  The selection is much better and, of course, I can rent NC-17, unrated and even Adult movies discreetly.  They all offer several different plans to suit your movie watching preferences, starting at less than $20 a month.
  They ALL offer a FREE trial   
  NetFlix
 
NetFlix
Largest rental service with a MILLION subscribers.  Over 16,000 G to R rated movies including 3,000 foreign films (also many unrated).  20 mail centers across US so mail time is only 1 day for most of their customers.
  WalMart

Walmart Movie Rentals

Less Expense and backed by the largest retailer on Earth.  Walmart's rental department is growing very fast.  This is the only service I have listed without using personally but it appears it works very similarly to Netflix for a few dollars less.  I would, however, expect them to not offer as many NC-17 and unrated movies but more family fare.
