My wife and I have been watching DVDs on our G4 MAC simply because it was there. But watching DVD in computer chairs and thru small speakers is getting old. Not to mention it puts the computer through useless wear/tear. So even though the MAC monitor we have blows away our TV in terms of color/definition/etc, we think its about time to get a dedicated DVD player and hook that sucka' up to the stereo and watch FZ rip Muffin Man on Baby Snakes in full stereo glory! So, I dont really need anything special, just something that will play DVD (and DVD burns) with no problem. Basically I want my VCR in DVD form. Thanks guys, you always help!
