    Well I got my first DVD burner and discovered that my 5 1/2 year old DVD player doesn't like DVD-R's and such.

    So I went to best buy earlier to look for a new DVD player.

    They had some nice ones there, but to my dissapointment, every single one of them was silver. So I went on line looking for one on different web sites, and again, everything is silver unless you want to put out $200 or more for a black one.

    Where it may not be a big deal to some, I have an entertainment center with 6 other components that are all black and it would look kind of stupid if I put a silver DVD player in with a black TV and components.

    I have noticed over the past several years that they are making more and more electronics stuff in that silver color from the 1970's. A couple years ago I went to get a CD player for my truck and wanted to get a Kenwood since I have had good luck with them through the years. So I get to the store and find out that Kenwood no longer makes anything black. So Sony got my sale that day.


    Is it just me or do the majority of people like the silver color of this stuff? Or are the manufactuerers just making them this way because they THINK we like it?

    If you want a good player that plays any format and are very reasonably priced look at the Apex brand. Will even play dvd-rw's.

    btw, a very helpful site. http://www.videohelp.com/dvd

    If it's really that important, have you considered a can of black spray paint?
