The Panasonic S27 DVD PLAYER will play DVD-R and DVD-RAM discs (not too sure about DVD+R). The Multiregion version of this is available from Play.com in Jersey, Channel Islands for £60 including free delivery. click here

The S27 isn't listed as a portable player but its reasonably slim and not very heavy. I have two of them (purchased from Argos @ £60 each) but mine are not multi-region. The region 2 only player costs about £20 extra to be chip modified so the Play.com
price is quite cheap.

Philips PET 700 £139.99 @ amazon or Shinco @£150 from allcam.biz if you want Divx capability. Philips has easy remote hack for multi-region, Shinco is multi-region out of the box.

philips website and other websites have it as dvd+ only.....not dvd+ and -....does it play both?

and play every format and disk you can think, all chinese DVD players have good error correction function becuase discs are normally in low quality in China

Have you looked on Richer sounds web page ? they do some bargains .

checked richer sounds but it seems its either one format or the other---not both---might just settle for philips and stick to dvd+ for future recording...

User review on Amazon stated that the Philips played DVD-R backups "fine"
