Bought two of them at CompuUSA here in California. They are "Norcent" brands... Actually a nice player.

I've seen DVD players at Best Buy, and Fry's that also run near thirty dollars.

ummm... when is the last time you went shopping? Do they have Wal-Marts in NY?

This one $36.87, but I've seen them on sale for $29.97.

This one is one that I have and I know it plays everything, I've tested it.

I bought it over a year ago and paid less than $35.

ummm... Let's speculate about how your customer would comment to friends... "yeha They were really good, we loved the video, it wouldn't play in Jeff's parents DVD player though and I told them about it and just two days later they sent us a new DVD player in the mail. We couldn't believe it. They said it was a complimentary gift. We would definately recommend them."

...something like that maybe?
That is such a good idea, and it sounds much better than asking them to copy all the hard work you put into a dvd onto a crappy VHS tape were all the quality is greatly reduced. Come to think of it a client of mine lately asked the videographer who did her sisters wedding to put the wedding dvd onto tape/VHS for them and he charged them 15, thats over $20....they weren't very impressed and thats why he didn't get to do this wedding.

Wow... you'd be out $30.

Gee - if this happened twice a year you might have to file for bankruptcy.
I just include the $50 DVD player from newegg it not only plays my verbatim inkjet DVD-R 8x flawlessy, but it also plays straight .AVI's off a DVD or DivX.. It's only $50 so for larger packages it's just included..:)
