Yay..New DVD Player

Got new DVD Player for home today, I was confused between 3 brands, Philips, LG and Pioneer… The cost was not the issue as all of them were under Rs. 5,000 but I needed something with good features and at reasonable rates..all of them had same features and the cost varied from Rs. 3,700 (LG) to Rs. 3950 (Pioneer)…so I decided to go for LG…which had same features as Pioneer and played Divx too 🙂

I tested it at home and surprise!!! It played XIVD format too 😀

So from now on, all downloaded movies will be watched on TV 🙂

  2. Hi Deep,

    Even I was confused a bit on choosing a best DVD Player, the reason I recently bought a 5.1 Surround System with DTS ! Have it attached to my system, but wanna experience a real time effect with DVD Player and I check LGEZBUY.COM which has all LG Products and as you said, a model which had featured over there was capable of playing XVID and DIVX Video and I guess thats the one you went for ?

    The cost should be something around Rs.4000 ? Can you provide me more details about it, so I can try my hand on it ;)?


  3. aha , “sony man” got ” LG” , lucky as xvid plays . I have 1 that doesnt play xvids, better till I get replace it with xvid compatible.

  4. my main TV screwed up… 🙁 video in in doesnt work…I will have to watch movies on 14″ one for couple of days 🙁

  5. I got my ond SONY muzic system (MHC-VX 701) CD reader damaged & it would cost around Rs 3000 to repair…so I am planning to get an DVD player which can play mp3 that my system did’nt played ….May be UR review will help me!

  6. hi Santosh!

    > searched for the keyword “DVD”
    > clicked on second result
    > read your reviews and comments
    > went to nearest retail showroom
    > grabbed my copy and viewing VAN HELLSING now 😉

    Why to buy this Player instead of Philips 5106k/97?

  9. Hi!

    I intend to buy a DVD player soon. I have zeroed on this player LG DS-9533 and a Philips one.

    How do you rate this player, especially DivX/Xvid Performance/Compatibility?

    Also, does this player have a Region Free Hack?

    Awaiting your comments.
