DVD Players: When Multi-disc Players Make Good Sense

By: Christine Peppler

Now that DVD players have been popular for quite a number of years, prices are quite reasonable. Single disc players well under $100 abound providing options for almost every budget. For many people a single disc player meets their needs nicely as they can view only one DVD movie at a time anyway. For some consumers however, other features are well worth a few extra dollars.

One of the first options buyers have to consider is whether or not a multi-disc or mega storage type of DVD player would be a good choice for them. While some multi-disc players allow users to keep up to 4 or 5 discs in the player at any given time, others can store up to 400 discs.

Multi-disc DVD players offer four primary advantages for consumers:

&bullEase of Use: Multi-disc DVD players allow users to keep multiple discs in the player which can eliminate time spent shuffling through discs and loading them. Most have good search functions that allow users to easily find the disc they want and to initiate play with the push of a button from their remote control. In the case of a large collection of discs this is a particularly attractive option.

&bullSaving Space: If a user has a large collection of discs, a mega storage DVD player can potentially store their collection eliminating the need for additional shelving on which to house their collection. All discs are maintained in the player and available for immediate access.

&bullDual Use: Most DVD players offer the ability to not only play DVD movies but audio CDs as well. Users can switch between movie viewing and listening to audio with the push of a button. With a multi-disc DVD player, many owners opt to forgo the purchase of a separate CD player completely.

&bullSomething for the Whole Family: Face it, not everyone living in the house has the same taste in music or movies. Being able to store and play multiple discs, can be the only fair way to give quick and easy access to the collections of multiple individuals.

Certainly, there are many choices to make and features to consider when selecting a DVD player. Deciding on the disc capacity requires only a simple look at the size of the person's DVD/CD collection and determining whether or not quick and easy access to those discs is critical.
