DVD Player for parents, but cheap..need help..

Okay, ive looked at the other threads, but my mother wants a player thats farily simple and for around $100-110. I know thats a rediculous budget, but she honestly doesnt need anything extravagent, im the HT guy, not her.

Anyway, she only has like a 25 or 27" TV and no receiver, she just wants to move to DVD. I was looking at BB and they are having a sale right now but thye only have brands like Mintek, and Sharp (like the DV-S1U) that would be around that price on sale. I would rather stay away from Mintek, just because I know nothing about them, and im not sure about Sharp.

Here is the link for the players at BB

any reccommendations, or can you suggest another brand somewhere else?

You can get a Toshiba 2800 for around $120 (Costco usually has them). Other people recommend the Panasonic RV-22, which is widely available for less than $140.

Either one of these will probably be more reliable than Mintek, Apex, Sharp, etc.

Walmart's DVD Selection

Quite a few DVD Players in your price range by companies you have heard of. Don't know if they are any good.
