I was leaning toward a couple of Toshiba models like the SD-4900. My room sports a $100 19" samsung TV sitting above my $700 sound system... I'm just getting tired of having to finish watching a movie in the living room when my crappy "Rowa" dvd player decides that even the lightest scratch on a dvd is a just cause to stop the whole movie... If any of you out there are "Rowa" fans, I would gladly pay you to come remove the current dvd player out of my room with the reassurance that I would never see it again. So what's the best, most reliable, non-freezingest, not neccessarily progressive-scan DVD player on the market right now? thanks.
