This one seems interesting. My friend has a Philips DVD player with DivX playback, and it’s the coolest thing. (His doesn’t have the HD upconversion, however.)

Is this any good?

Ehh, unrefurbished and I get two.

Not a bad deal, refurbished, but saving some nice coin… wish i had some cash to burn :frowning:

Looks pretty good, but kind of expensive for a DVD player. However, it is 150 at Best Buy… but it doesn’t beat my computer. Maybe another day.

Good price, I might have to pounce on this as my samsung upconvert dvd player sucks!

Goes great with that TV from last night… too bad I didnt get that one either!


first page!!!<br /><b>(USER WAS PUT ON PROBATION FOR THIS POST)</b>

Divx 4 why?

But I already have 7 dvd players…dang it!

cool… dvd player with HD… nice woot

that 3 minute wait had me excited… for no reason. inferior brand/product and overpriced at that. thanks anyways, electronics are fun

Not a big refirb fan anyone have any bad experiences with a refirb???

“The LG Progressive Scan DVD Player is an open-minded media-playing polyglot that can read just about any video format this side of stereoscope reels.”

I’ve been looking for an svcd /vcd 2.0/ vcd 1.1 player. Want to add that it plays these to your description?


Nice price, you U.S. centric capitalist pigs.

To go with last night’s tv?

I bought this from computergeek for 89.99 refurb, works great with hdtv upscale.

I’d take if it had vcr in it also…
