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.

    Wow, exciting! Our DVD player is from 2000 and courtesy of an ex-boyfriend, so we certainly could stand an upgrade. Though it does greet me with a "Welcome to DVD World" on start-up, which I’ve always felt infuses a little extra something to the watching process….
