I need a new one, and the one I bought earlier from Wal-Mart today didn't work.
I don't necessarily need anything with a bunch of bells and whistles. At this time I don't plan on upgrading to Blu-Ray just yet. I really don't watch anything on old VHS tapes these days, so I don't need a combo.
Any that upconverts is going to serve you well. If you can use the HDMI as your interface cord, do it. It does a much better job, and the difference is noticeable. Make sure your TV has an HDMI input. Brand doesn't really matter on HDMI, you don't need to buy a Monster one.
I really like Samsung and Panasonic electronics lately. Great value and performance for the dollar. I used to be a Sony guy, but I like these now, and LG makes some good stuff too. Look up BestBuy's ad and see which is on sale. Sears also has some good brands at good prices.

Agree. If you are watching on Stanfard Def. and will be for the foreseeable future it barely matters as long as it works. When you start upconverting to near HD quality then you have to do some research. If you have some burned DVDs from your computer you'll want to be sure they are compatible as well.
Does anyone have good ideas as to what upconverting DVD players are good? From looking at reviews I would guess the Pioneer DV-410V and the Harman Kardon DVD 48...anyone have thoughts about these?
Pioneer makes good stuff and the one you have listed has HDMI. I assume your TV also has HDMI? Also keep in mind that if you have a TV that has HDMI there is a good chance that it already upscales on it's own so you may not even be able to tell the difference between it and a normal DVD player that you already have.
