The Sony DVP-FX820

I saw this portable dvd player today in action on an hd camera, even with only a composite signal, it ws good enough to gain critical focus using a 35mm adapter.

The price is too good.

Marshall might be in trouble given that it has as good a picture at 1/10th the cost...

Just sayin...

In all europa, it is expensive as hell. About 400$ as Andrew said.
I bought it, after searching 4 weeks, on ebay for around 200$. Better then nothing, and it doesn't seem to be a better price/power-combination then this monitor. (for HD .. ok here it isn't complete hd, but nice resolution though)
