Help - DVD player for a 10 year old

I have decided to buy a DVD player for my god-daughter for Christmas as her old one broke and her dad thinks it would be a good idea.
I am not sure which one to get, I don't want to get a really cheap unbranded one unless it is recommended but don't really want to spend more than £30.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

My own experience would suggest buying the cheapest you can find - over the years I've bought several, - the cheapest cost about a tenner, the most expensive cost nearer £150. Both the cheapest and the most expensive broke within the first year - when I returned the cheap player to Asda I was given an immediate replacement, when I returned the expensive one to a local AV specialist I had to wait weeks for it to be "tested" before they argued the toss and insisted that it was repaired rather than replaced... the repair lasted a couple of weeks until they washed their hands of me as it was now out of warranty.

I would agree that a cheapy player would be best to get. They are usually far better at playing DVDR.

Id probably say look for one that plays DivX also. (So you can burn lots of stuff onto one disc without fear of losing a fortune in scratched discs)
