Which of these multi-regional Progressive Scan DVD Players should I buy?

I'm interested in buying a DVD player with progressive scan, multi-regional capability (and an NTSC to PAL converter) that are reasonably priced. I found three but have found no reviews (in English, anyway) for any of them and was hoping someone here might have had or knows someone who has had experience with them. I'd like to know wich is the best for my buck.

They are BBK DVD-BBK919PS (this one interests me the most but I am unsure of all three), Shinco DVD-858PS, and Skyworth DVD-1050P.

In case anyone's wondering, I found all three at https://www2.setssl.com/~hivizone/dv...main_frame.htm

I also found a Philips DVD-Q50 but it's too high ($518 US) for my current price range.

I'd appreciate any info any of you can offer me. Also, are the prices for the players reasonable or should I try looking someplace else? Or should I just forget about them altogether?

I see a few peole have read this but still no one replies. Anyone have at least a link to a site where they've compared them?

Any kind of help would be welcome.

You should check the forum over at www.avsforum.com under DVD & LD HARDWARE. I've seen some mention of the players you listed.

Yeah, I second the AVSForum. Lots of good info there.

I bought the Malata N996 based on the reviews from people there and I have been *extremely* happy with it. It is one the best additions to my HT after my 16:9 TV.

Really, kinky? What does that DVD player have to offer? Also, what's the average price?
