i know a lot of people are going to disagree with me but do we really need another dvd player? I have no less then 5 dvd players in my house, from my computers to a standalone to a PS2. I know i'm not the only one, count them yourself. If by chance you don't have a dvd player, go to walmart and pick up an Apex for $30 on sale, sometimes less. Point being, this is really not that necessary, just kinda cool.
