I just purchased one of these from Currys. I think it is an end of line, and was reduced from £130.
A number of forums were discussing it, and seemed to like the product.
So far, it has played everything I have chucked at it! VCD/DVD/MP3/DIVX/JPEGS... you name it, this seems to play it.
Only possible downside is that the tuner is not digital, but you can record from Sky of any other external source.

It can be "hacked" into a multi region unit. I know - I did it!
Lastly - Comet are selling it for the same price, so be sure to point this out when in the store - I did, and managed to get another fiver off.
