I don't have any background with this player and I've never heard of it, but it plays DVD and VHS for $100. Most of these players are around $150 at cheapest. It's $130 - $30 mail in rebate. It looks like it's an in store deal only, and it may be sold out in a lot of areas. Also, you get two free movie tickets by mail as well, so this is a good deal.

KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS PLAYER DOES NOT PLAY VCD/SVCD, ONLY DVD.
