Cheap DVD player?

I need to find a cheap DVD player that I can put in my room. I have a nice one that I have hooked up to my nice TV, but I would like to have a cheap one that will play all types of dvds that I could keep in my room.

So, where is a cheap place to buy one?

Target. Best Buy. Walmart. jr.com. Possibly your local grocery store. Similar stores to these.

yeah, seriously... you can't swing your arms in any store without hitting a 20 dollar DVD player these days.

back in Aug of 05' i bought a cheap $40 Diamondvision dvd player from wal-mart & it is just as good as my dvd player in the living room.
Its region free and will play any dvd out there.

I bought one at Brandsmart for $14 last summer. If you can't find a sub-$20 DVD player, you really aren't looking very hard.

I bought a Bravo D1 around X-mas for $35 (+$10 for shipping). I replaced the $1.50 bad capasitor and it has awesome pq over HDMI (DVI)! I just hooked it up over the weekend as my old player went out.

I don't know if they are still available...was going to look as maybe get another one. But if you can find, they are sweet.
