Tips for Buying a Good Budget DVD Player
When searching for a DVD player under $50, keep the below tips in mind:
Decide if you want a DVD player or a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players offer higher resolutions and can downscale to play DVDs. However, most DVD players cannot upconvert to play Blu-Ray discs. So, if you want to play Blu-Ray discs, make sure the player you buy can actually read them.
If you want to play VHS tapes as well, you will need to buy a DVD/VCR combo unit. These can be slightly bit more expensive than the products mentioned on the above list. If you want to play CDs, don’t worry; the above-listed DVD players are perfectly capable of playing CDs.
Understand how portable you want the DVD player to be. Most budget ones are small and can be easily carried between computers or from home to car.
Before you buy a DVD player, check the specs of your TV. It will require a port for an HDMI cable to plug in a high-res DVD player. DVD players can be plugged in via USB, component, composite or S-Video inputs. Check how the player connects to the TV and double check to see if your TV is compatible with the player you intend to buy.
The more features the player has, the better the bargain will be. Some features can be considered necessary to modern DVD players, like 1080p resolution and progressive scan. You can also buy players is upconverting ability, parental lock, USB connectivity, and digital surround sound.
