Denon DVD1740

Want a decent, 'upsscaling', region-free DVD player that handles avi files? Don't want to pay more than £100? Richer Sounds still have some stocks of the Denon DVD1740.

I bought one because the PS3 won't play my region 1 DVDs and because my (reassuringly heavy, aesthetically pleasing) Primare V25 DVD player doesn't upscale or have an HDMI output.

Kinda humbling to have to admit that something that cost a decimal place less outperforms the Primare in every area except playing CDs. But it does. It really, really does.

Oh, a word of warning. It weighs almost nothing, so budget for four blobs of Blu Tack to stop it sliding around every time you attempt to insert a disc.
