    Random Poll: Just how big is big momma?


    a) Big momma is so big, she can get group insurance rates.
    b) Big momma is so big, she gets clothes in three sizes: extra large, jumbo and oh-my-god-it's-coming-towards-us!
    c) Big momma is so big, when she gets on the scale it says 'to be continued.'
    d) Actually, big momma is so big, when she gets on the scale it says 'One at a time, please!'
    e) Hey... uh - the movie is about 'Big Momma' not 'Yo Mama'. Get your head out of the toilet.

    Thanks for the info. I am glad I found this board since having uninstalled mirc for forblems with hacking via my cable. My kids want a player at my ex's place, so, she benefits and this info helps, is in price range, good brand and I have heard good things about it elsewhere. Thanks again C

    Well screw the Sharp - that thing is now my official dust collector sitting on the floor near my "subwoofer". For xmas, I bought myself a nice, new little Toshiba SD1600. $200. There are other cheaper players out there, but they're total junk, just like the Sharp (which by the way became progressively worse, highly sensitive to dust and scratches to the point where many titles were unplayable - I am hearing that this is the case with MANY of the ultra-cheap DVD models on the shelves today.) This Toshiba, on the otherhand has satisfied me beyond anything I'd hoped for and has now replaced my old Toshiba SD3107 (which anyone who knows Toshibas will tell you had VERY high quality picture, sound & performance, albeit buggy). The new 1600, while cheap, is fast (menu navigation & disc load-time), high quality image & sound like its predecessor and has DTS support which is what I really needed.

    Overwhelmingly satisfied, and glad to not have laid out $300+ for a quality product.
