How many DVD players do you own?

After reading the thread about everybody's first DVD Player, I began to think, how many do we all have? I have 5 currently, but have owned 7 total.

1. Living Room Sony
2. Master Bedroom Toshiba Dual Disc
3. PS2
4. Desktop computer
5. Laptop computer


I have had two others:

6. XBox
7. Original DVD player that broke

Will be buying a portable LCD DVD player for plane rides soon enough...

***For this to get interesting (and easy to calculate), add your total EVER OWNED to the guy above you for a final number at the end of your post, so the next guy can do the same. For instance, I have owned 7. My number is 7. If the next guy had 3, put a 10 at the end, like this:

7

Its that easy. Hoping this works 'cause I'm curious how many DVD players we have here...

OK so here is my number


7

5-ish

Sony - single disc
Toshiba 5 disc changer
Playstation 2
Xbox
PC-DVD setup

I really only use the Sony and PS2... even though they are hooked up to the same TV. I don't know why, but my remotes work between the two.

Not counting a working Toshiba SD-1700 that's in the closet as an emergency back-up.

Let's see: one DVD-ROM, one DVD-/+RW, one region-free, one changer (main player), and an XBox.

So, 5 in total.

You cheater! Clearly, the ones in your computer are the same ones (DVD-RWs are clearly also the DVD-ROMs as well).

So it's *only* 14.

I'm just kidding with you. Anyway, out of curiosity, why do you have a separate player for TV shows? Does the Sammy do something better for TV shows?

ONE!

Two by the end of this summer, as this one that I have is three years old, and we are upgrading our HT when we move into our new house.

Not a gamer, still occasionally play Nintendo 64, but that's it.

Nope, while it's true that the RW drives are also ROM's by default, the ROM's I listed are seperate read-only drives (saves read wear on my burners). My main comp has 2 RW burners and a ROM drive (I do a lot of data work and do simultaneous data DVD burns for archiving). My laptops only have ROM drives.

As far as the dedicated TV DVD player, I just bought it since it was a decent priced mid-level player and I was tired of switching out the TV discs everytime I wanted to watch a movie on my main player. Now I just leave whatever TV show disc I'm watching in the Samsung, so I can just power on and resume where I left off. I was never a fan of changers back in the CD days, so that wasn't an option for me.

1. RCA Single-Disc (first player)
2. PS2 (don't use for dvd's)
3. Xbox (ditto)
4. Panny CP-72S 5-disc Prog Scan
5. Sony DVD-Rom

I am looking into picking up a multi-region player very soon, so that will make 6. I also want a portable player sometime in the future.
