Price War (Toronto)- $19.99 Sylvania SDVD6655-B DVD player.

Price:
$19.99
Retailer:
Price War
I've been borrowing a lot of DVDs lately from TPL for stuff I can't find on streaming. Got tired of hooking laptop w/built-in DVD drive to TV each time to watch DVDs.

Noticed that Price War (564 Bloor Street West) has Sylvania SDVD6655-B new for $19.99. Grabbed one a few weeks ago and it's been great. Cheaper than Walmart ($34.88). Note, HDMI cable not included but does come with RCA cables for older TVs.

If you want a cheaper option, many thrift stores have shelves full of these for $5-10.

I mean we could do that for every new item posted on RFD. Clothing, TVs , cars. Will always be cheaper used but that's not what this forum is really about.

Check on Craigslist and Kijiji. I often see dvd players being given away all the time. Sometimes the person will give thier library of DVD's as well as they are streaming thier media.

I get your point, but in 2021, a DVD player is basically garbage sitting in people's closets and garages. You can find them for free on kijiji, from friends, or going for a walk on garbage day morning. There's no status to buying a brand new dvd player, and at this point the tech has been mature for 10+ years. I don't think there's any loss in grabbing second hand one. But if you want new, I guess this is a good price?

Coincidentally, my family and I just spent the past 3 days revising my DVD library...kids saw me cleaning out the drawers and asked "what are those??" (they haven't watched a DVD since they were 3 &5) and got excited when they saw some older animated stuff ie. Iron Giant, spirited away, Titan AE, etc.
Hooked up the old player to the TV (no HDMI output, had to use RCA but could find only a red/white audio cable so had to use the red as video and listen to mono sound)...had to get used to watching SD quality again but it was fun re watching some stuff I haven't seen in years.
Wife says, "you should get another player just in case this one breaks down". I still have 2 extra players sitting my parents basement storage though (I never got into BluRay and don't have gaming consoles)...

Any Blu Ray player, like consoles etc will play DVDs, so buying "extra" DVD players seems moot.

Wouldn't something like a Chromecast be a more versatile option if you don't want to hook up your laptop to your TV?

I mean, he said he was using his laptop before and just got tired of hooking it up to the TV. If that’s the case, then using a Chromecast to stream the DVDs from the laptop is an option, no?

No, the laptop (phone, tablet, etc) does not actually "feed" any audio/video to a CC. It's more like sending the CC a "command" to stream whatever you your TV. So DVD content off a physical disc will not work over CC.
Okay, I stand corrected... apparently it's possible TIL

I don’t have a Chromecast personally, but as far as I can tell from googling, you can stream DVDs and media files from PC just fine.

The last DVD players I bought were Sylvania, and all suffered laser rot. One of them just sat in a box and rotted. I would opt for a used namebrand.

Laser rot = everything works, but the laser can't focus and read the disc.
