I'm trying to determine which replacement dvd player to purchase and would appreciate practical advice. Cost is less important than quality, but I would like to stay around $300. I have read numerous reviews, but end up more confused than informed.

Points to consider:

Require progressive scan for HDTV playback.
Adjustable aspect ratio (not included on all models).
Zoom (for wide screen formats).
No artifacts in 4:3 mode (a common problem noted in reviews).
Good deinterfacing capability (a problem noted in reviews).
Can be single or multiple disk machine.

I wish to play DVD, SVCD, VCD and KVCD formats with the best quality output in both standard and HDTV modes. I would appreciate information from someone who has made an in depth study of available players.

Get the Panasonic DVD -- CP72 (5-Disk changer $199-$250 before a $30 rebate)

It has progressive scan and can play all the KVCD templates. In the manual it states that it cannot play SVCD but this isn't true. It plays SVCD and SKVCD.


Video CDs
probably DVD+R/+RW

The only thing that is lacking is a zoom function but I have that on my HDTV.

Over the past six months I have purchased and then returned about 6 DVD players. It looks like this one is a keeper! I love this player great progressive output and it is compatible with all the KVCD templates.

Just like my Panasonic Portable DVD-L10, which doesn't even mention SVCD in the manual, but plays them fine
