Hey guys.

Want to purchase a DVD Player.
My Budget is around 3 ~ 3.5K not more.
DIVX Compatibility is not compulsory.
If i am looking for DIVX support then is the Philips 5106K my best option?
ne others?

Thank you for you help :)

You won't find the 5106K in the market..I think it has been phased out..Look for the Philips 3046. It should be within your budget.

Philips 3046 couldn't read Munnabhai damn-scratched(!) dvd at all at my place whereas my older dvd player DVP922 did. if you are gonna use clean cds/dvds , then its fine

works well :) . plays divx/xvid .

I recently bought a Philips DVP 5150 from Vijay sales for 4.5k.The player plays absolutely all the formats thrown at it.Some very rare files have codec problems.Rest I think it has even played raw dat files & .m2v(SVCD) files straight off.Worth the money you pay for it.Got it hacked to region free as well.:bleh:

One disfactor for this player is that you can't time search in case of Divx movies.Which means of you watch the movie half way through & stop is completely then you can't input a time to directly skip to that particular scene.You'll manually have to forward it at 32x to get to that point.:mad:

Don't go for the cheap LG models instead buy one from either samsung or Philips.
