Gotta say, i'm kind of surprised.. thought more people would have megachangers.. heh.
guess i'm the only one so far..

personally, like having every dvd in my collection at the touch of a button.... guess i'm just lazy :0

for that fact, i have another megachanger, but that one is only for cds... hehe.

Megachangers are too expensive for a little convience IMO. Swapping discs every 2 hours is not a big deal. Plus I feel I lot safer with $2000-10000 worth of DVD's sitting in their cases, rather than in a machine.

I have a single and a 5 disc but voted single since it's the one I use 95% of the time.

what kind of dvd player I have

I have a Toshiba 2200. It's ok. I've never had a real problem with it. It's got a two-disc tray. Component video looks nice. I heard someone say that some Toshiba's have the chroma bug.

I've never actually watched one in action but I would think that you'd have the same drawback with a dvd megachanger that you do with a cd megachanger, lower quality audio and video. In any case taking a dvd out of it's case and placing it in the player's drawer doesn't seem much of an inconvience to me.

6 single disc players. I've got a Sony DVP-NS315 in my living room and a Toshiba SD-2008U that I have had since like 1998 in the bedroom. Then also a PS2, Xbox, DVD-ROM, and the first DVD "Dream" Home theater in the box that Sony made. I don't use the DVD payer on it because it has halfway crapped out on me but still use it as a receiver till I save the money for a new receiver and speakers.
