    I was considering getting a DVD player for my room and was wondering if I'm better off saving the money and using my Xbox as a DVD player instead. I don't need a great player since the tv in my room is about 10 years old and whenever I replace it I won't be getting anything too expensive. Should I just use my Xbox as a spare DVD player or are there promblems with it that I'm unaware of?

    If your tight on cash, just use it. It wont be perfect, but it will do you just fine.

    Save the money, then in time you will be able to afford something better.

    I moved my Xbox to the family room from the basement as a stopgap DVD player and mp3 jukebox during the holidays last year. I put about 10 Christmas CDs onto the Xbox, and had a constant rotation of music on hand. I noticed no problems at all with it's DVD capabilities.

    I have an xbox in the bedroom that doubles as my DVD player there. I wouldn't recommend it as a primary player but fine as a backup/secondary player.

    Hmmm I was going to use my Xbox as one. But sold it. I wouldn't use any videogame system as a DVD player, maybe as a backup though.

    I also use the XBOX as a DVD player, I plan on getting something better a little later on.
