I just picked one up at Radio Shack for $58(us dollars) has a $10 mail in rebate too. I tested it out in the store and it played everything on the KVCD compatibility v2 test image perfectly. It played so good I got 2 of them

Indeed, CyberHome is a very good brand... I got myself a CH-DV 550 which is only available in europe I suppose. you can get it for 99 euros here, and it competes with Sony Pioneer and Phillips concerning image quality, referring to recent tests...

WOW, this machine is AWESOME
Last night I tested a KVCDx3, a CD-R with a bunch of .JPGs, a CD-R with a couple of .MPGs burned as data, not as VCD , and the thing plays everything
I also tried a MiniDVD ( DVD structure burned on a CD-R ), and it played too
This is the BEST DVD player I've seen, and specially for the price. The video quality is EXCELENT, connected via component cables and set to "progressive" mode, viewed on my HDTV

"Quality Made in Germany" (actually in China, but however all parts are tested here)

Hello kwag:

I was looking at the specs of the CH-DVD 300 player, and it only refers to -r and -RW discs, have you tested it with +r and +RW discs? Is this one for region one only, or does it play multiple regions?

Thanks and best regards

Totonho

Jorel:

I believe that the best way to do this would be via Fedex or via 2nd or 3d day USPostal express delivery. This may cost any where from 30 to 50 dollars, depending on the weight of the box. Do not need to worry about taxes in Brazil because the unit cost less than US$500.00 dollars. If you are interested, I am going to go to Radio Schack tomorrow and see if they have it at the store. Or you can buy it directly from (Give a minute I am going to go back to one site that sells this unit):

http://store.arguselectronics.com/shop/dept.asp?dept%5Fid=8

Do not know if this store would send the unit outside USA or not.

Thanks

Totonho

Hello Jorel:

I just came back from Radio Schack, with a brand new dvd player. It is still boxed, unfortunatelly I won't be able to work on it for a couple of hours or so.
On my way back home, I stopped at the Post office, and asked them to wight it and to give me an estimated delivery price. Their answer was: It is about 34 dollars, including a 70 dollars insurance. Total price of unit is 62.99 dollars (59.99 plus taxes).
Did you check the site I sent last night?

I will let you know later on how does the unit behave.

Regards

Otto

Hi again Jorel:

The unit is compact and does play R+ and +RW discs. So far so good, actually, and this just may be my imagination, the video signal looks better than the one seeing at the RCA unit, granted the RCA dvd, "esta en la ultima lona" A Peruvian or Spanish expression meaning that the unit is working overtime and is ready to die....

Regards

Hey Otto,

Burn some .jpg images on a CD-R, and throw it at the player. Then do a "Slide Show"

By the way, thanks to you and all of the folks that posted messages regarding this unit.

Regards

Otto
