I NEED SOME HELP FROM THE TECHNICALLY SOPHISTICATED out there. i am
about to purchase my first DVD player.in the $250-$350 range. but
it's not that simple. my school library's A-V collection has several
hundred laser discs-some, the only copy of very important films.i
have no way of viewing them.i know Pioneer makes a combination
laser-dvd player.What are the reasons for and against purchasing one
of those?should I? is there a technical fall off? should i just try
to locate a laser disc player on e-bay?What are the best DVD players
in the range i am  considering(you can go a little bit above if
necessary)Finally, can someone clearly explain the "districts"
phenomenon for DVD's. ,is it like NTSC, PAL and SECAM for video
cassettes? if so how and where can i purchase a DVD player that
plays discs from all districts as i am likely to buy discs from
Europe and Asia.What are the best brands of this kind?By now you can
see my problems. any help in resolving them would be greatly
appreciated. thanks in advance.
