Need opinion on these DVD players.

After four and half-years my RCA player finally kick the bucket, so I did a little shopping around town finding a new player. My budget is very limited meaning I can't spend over $100. I really want a good brand name not those cheapo player like Apex and Memorex. Here are the models I'm looking at and the prices.

Toshiba SD-3960 $69.99
Panasonic DVD-S27 $79.99
Sony NS575P $89.99
JVC XVN410BK $89.99

All have Progessive Scan, however I want a player that well played almost 300 of my DVD with no skipping and freezing. So, if anyone have any of these models, please tell me which is the best of these on the list. Thanks

Although I'd never recommend any player that cheap, if you have to be at that price point, Sony is definitely the way to go. Good build quality and they have descent video D/A converters at all price points.

As a second choice, I'd go with the Panasonic.

Sell 10 of your DVD's for $10 each and buy a good $200 player for your remaining 290 discs.
