    I'm in the market for a budget-level progressive scan dvd player (under $125) and need recommendations. I am currently looking at the following models:

    Toshiba SD-3900
    Panasonic DVD-S35S
    Philips DVD726
    Samsung DVD-P231

    All are under $100 at Bestbuy. I'm kind of leaning towards the Toshiba because I've always liked their stuff in the past. What does everyone think? Feel free to recommend other models. I will be using it with a 27'' Samsung HDTV. The TV does 3:2 pulldown so thats not really important. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

    David, I'm jumping on the Toshiba this weekend, as it is region free with a couple of button presses, and does PAL->NTSC conversion quite well from what I've read....I'm curious if it has the chroma bug though...either way I'm going for it, as there are some UK only titles I'm really wanting.
