Excerpt: Nowadays, when the shelves of your supermarket are groaning under the weight of cheap DVD players, a machine with the chutzpah to cost £100 needs to offer more than mere competence. Pioneer, DVD front-runner since day one, certainly has the track record to suggest it can pull that particular trick off. The DV-410-V looks and feels a cut above the no-name bargains. It's compact, nicely finished and supplied with a clear remote control.
Pros: Sturdy build and good spec for the money, engaging movie sound
