    Mom has decided she wants a DVD player for Mothers Day. While I am pretty well informed on high end players, I know very little on the low end budget players, so I was hoping for a few suggestions.

    It will be hooked up to an older sony TV with standard RCA Audio Video jacks, so things such as:
    Svideo, Component, DVI, Optical Out, Progressive Scan, Discreet 5.1, etc etc are not important.

    Basically I am looking for an Interlaced player, with decent Picture Quality, and good build quality.

    I was hoping to spend $150 or less. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'd recommend a JVC model, I see Good Guys has one for $79. Very fast load times and reliable.

    I have a JVC RX-N40BK DVD player that I am very happy with..fast load times, plays everything and anything and doesn't have the chroma-bug..for the price I would recommend it highly..

    Check out the newly released JVC XV-N310BK - I think its fixed the problems with the earlier XV-N40BK and XV-N50BK models. I see its $79 at Good Guys:

    I had a JVC for a couple years but wanted to upgrade to a Faroudja-based model for the best picture quality with all DVD types, but these cost $250+ but for under $100 the JVCs are the best deal around.
