I've just recently gotten into laserdiscs and while the player I'm using right now is decent, I'd like to find something better. What I'm using now is a Pioneer CLD-2090. It works and has decent picture quality but it's in pretty rough shape. The drawer is all kinds of noisy when it opens / closes and sometimes the side flip function gets stuck or, in really bad cases, it causes the player to hang completely and I have to unplug the power cable to get it right again. I've been doing a lot of reading and I think I've narrowed my choices down to a few models: Pioneer CLD-704, CLD-703, DLV-700, DLV-909, or DLV-919, Mitsubishi M-V7057, Panasonic LX-900 What I'm looking for is reliable LD playback w/ good picture quality (at least as good as the CLD-2090, preferably better). I'm never going to bother with an AC3 demodulator so I don't care about that. I also don't care about DVD playback since I have a good DVD player already. All this needs to do is play LDs, and play them well. Of the models I listed, are there any that I just absolutely shouldn't fool with? Are any of them significantly better or worse than the others? Finally, is there anything really important I need to know before buying one of these used? Any advice or just general info would be really appreciated.
