Win a DVD Player!

Alright, I know that DVDs are on their way out but I still cling onto my 500+ DVD collection because I love movies that much (I have no taste and will watch anything).

Our old Toshiba DVD player was decent, but all that changed when we upgraded our television to a widescreen HDTV LCD. With no upscaling feature, my DVDs looked like crap on our 1080p screen.

So last winter, I added the Sony DVP-NS710H/B 1080p Upscaling DVD Player to my Amazon wish list…

…and received two as a result.

The extra unit has been sitting in our bedroom, box unopened, untouched and undamaged since Christmas.

So I’ve decided to offer it as a giveaway to my readers!

This DVD player is one of the most popular models on the market right now, with a retail price of $69.99. It upscales DVDs to 1080p, near HD resolution via an HDMI connection (note: HDMI cable not included). So far, I have not had any problems with mine and I’m happy to report that DVD playback is great.

For more information on this DVD player, please visit the product information page on the Sony USA website.

    Oh my gosh this couldn’t come at a better time. Please let me win!! Our DVD player is dying, we have to beat on it to get it to work and it will only play about 1/2 of our DVD’s now. This would be so nice!

    I’ve been using one of the original (no joke) DVD players for a LONG time. It it finicky and doesn’t play every DVD. Very frustrating, but I can’t force myself to buy a new one! If I don’t win, I will though. 🙂

  16. Jess says:

    Sounds like a fun giveaway!

  17. Amber says:

    OMG! Do I need this. One of my kids thought that our DVD player worked like the Wii and just shoved a DVD into the player . So now I have a disc floating around in the DVD player that I can’t get out! GRR. Plus I am having a similar problem with the upscaling. I really hope I win!
