Im new to laserdiscs. Dont really plan to venture to heavily into it. Getting My First Laserdisc Player. Purchased Evangelion Laserdiscs for my anime collection and maybe plan to get some of my favorite movies.

Looking to purchase locally and the two options are:

Sony MDP-550:
Unsure of the price yet
Told it works perfectly but the LCD display is very dim to intermittent. unsure if it has a remote

Pioneer CLD v2400: $75
serviced but no remote

The person selling these services them and Im told they both work well.
Id go more towards the Sony only because the Pioneer model is a single side reader from what i read.

I have found no info on the sony however. Hopefully someone could help

Don't bother if you don't plan to get into LD heavily.

If you do get the Pioneer.

If you can replace capacitors yourself and the MDP-550 is cheaper than the Pioneer because it is not fully functional (dim/intermittent display does not mean working to me), go with it.
