we have a vast collection of disney films (a few of which are on constant repeat a the moment).
our playstation 2 is becoming tired and sensitive so i need to replace it!

- looking for something around the £30-£40 mark
- HD up-scaling would be nice, but not essential.
- a player that doesn't have a hissy fit with the slightest of marks on the disc (my 2 year old likes to load the player)
- surround sound or other auxiliary outputs for external speaker setup not essential but would be a bonus.
- blu-ray i'm not fussed about at all (and doubt it fits in to my budget).

any help out there at all?

My advice is pay a visit to all the big supermarkets near you and see what they've got on offer, tesco for example stock Sony, Samsung & Panasonic units for under £40 ;)

I just bought a really good Panasonic Blu-Ray player for £70 from Sainsburys. Doesn't seem worth buying a DVD player when they are that cheap, for a well reviewed one as well.

all DVD players are pretty much the same these days - still worth looking up region hacks for the odd US sourced DVD film.

I have a Toshiba SD1010. Paid £25 for it. Never had any problems with it

Also plays AVI divx files and you can make it multi regional by turning on dvd player, press open, type 98790.
