I decided to get my family into the DVD world this christmas. Primarily these DVD players will be used to watch movies on regular TVs in non-ht setups with maybe some light CD audio usage. I am looking for a hassle free player that will play about any movie without problems such as audio-sync, pixelation, skips, freezes. I know some DVDs will have problems regardless of the player but that some players have bugs/quality issues that others don't. I want something that won't break down right away either. I settled on the Samsung DVD-s221 for $89.99, which I felt was a good price. Reading some so-so reviews for older Samsung models I am wondering if maybe I should of went with a different brand. They had a Toshiba sd-1800 and JVC xv-s300bk each for $99.99 but I don't know much about those players. So for a basic player what do you guys recommend - Do I stick with the Samsung or what?
