I have an LG that I grabbed for 3,000 NT, that handles MP3s, Vcds, SVCDs, WMA, Divx, DVDs, motion Jpeg, DVD-R/-RW/+R/RW, pirate discs from China, CDs and CDrs. It’s also progressive scan.
You might be able to find it for cheaper.
I bought it in a 3C ONLY because it plays DIVX (most Xvid files too, but not all).
The DIVX playback is decent. I prefer the playback on a modified X-BOx, but X-Box is a wanky s. o. b. and the lasers die out after a few years, and get ugly along the way.
The model# is DV9923N.
I bought it in Jhunan. I have seen them sold at Blockbuster videos in Hsinchu and Banchiao, Jhunan and Miaoli City.
It’s a solid investment for such a price. I’ve had no problems with my player (It’s 3 months old) and I use it to watch DIVX almost exclusively.
I have another - region free - player that I prefer for DVDs.
For a low cost, technically solid investment I recommend the LG. Solid consumer machine. Pro-sumer: you might want to look around further.
