The age of VCR's and audio cassettes is gone, now all media files are either on DVD's or pen drives. DVD is the top disc format for movies and music because of the high playback quality promise and durability of the disc. And for home theater systems, a DVD player is a key component. And for entertainment on the go, there are portable DVD players, with a compact size and light design, yet allowing for a great viewing experience.
While Blu-ray players are the latest trend, for great movie playback on a budget, a DVD player is a cheaper option. Upcoming and current DVD player models strive to combine the most features in one box for a competitive price. One feature to look for is "upconversion", where the DVD is converted automatically to a HD quality. Audio effects and enhanced viewing effects like zoom are perks too.
