Default Venturer HD DVD player at Target/Amazon?

Hello everyone,has anybody heard of this HD DVD player from the brand Venturer? It is selling for $150.00 at Target/Amazon. Is this a good player? If not I'll stick to Toshiba,LG,and Samsung. Thank you...nvc1019

Walmart's website lists it @ $98.00, The SDH7000 is basically an A3 just chinese design.

Default A3 with different badge

there's a couple of threads on this player...in one, some one pulled the case and compared the components side by side to the toshiba a3. They were pretty much identical.

the front panel is more plain, with all black buttons that make it hard to see what you're selecting. I actually prefer its remote to the a3, as it is smaller and takes up less room(with all the same functionality I think).

it appears to update fine on-line with software upgrades as well.

As you've probably figured out by now, I have both - and there's very little to choose between them. I'd probably let the included movies and price be your guide as to preference.

Here's a thread if you're interested...I believe somewhere in the middle of post are pics of the players compared.
