    Looking for suggestions from people that have used a Player that is around $100 that plays DVD's/SVCD/VCD/DVD-R/MP3 etc.
    I would like to stay with a name brand. I've seen a Toshiba for around $90 that does, I Have a 6200 and like toshiba but not sure on their low end players.

    Any suggestions Appreciated.

    Dave, was that Toshiba player new? I don't think I have ever seen a DVD player from a major manufacturer (i.e., not considering APEX, Mintek, etc.) for $100 or less. I think if you can step up to $150 or so, you will be better off. Simply look at the budget players from Sony, Panasonic, Pioneer, Toshiba, etc. You might want to start by looking at Crutchfield's selection since they do a great job reviewing features. Go to www.crutchfield.com . Note, however, that Crutchfield does not sell Toshiba products.

    It was new I saw it at Costco, but they do not have it on their website. I'm going to have to look at the model number next time I'm there. Costco has a liberal enough return policy that I could probably buy it, try it and see how it works

    Looking at the Toshiba Website I think it was the SD1800 that Costco had for around $100. According to the site it does play all those formats, well except SVCD, hard to find a player other that the chinese ones that'll play those.
