Hi. I'm seriously toying with the idea of buying two 32 inch Samsung tvs for the bedrooms but as they don't have built in dvd / bluray players I would want two compact players that could be brought out only when required.  Really don't want boxes galore in the bedrooms. So small and functional and easy to stash. Can anyone recommend anything like that?

Sony BDPS 1100 - a mere £49.95 at your local richersounds and only 29cm wide.

If you feel 11.4173228 inches is worthy of being called a foot, then yes indeed !

That's great. Thanks.  I'll take a look at that. Definitely the right price.

Just an update, in the end I opted for Samsung BD-F5100 blu-ray players. The BD-F5100 players were even smaller (H3.8 x W27 x D19.3mm ) than the Sonys, same price, 2 year warranty (from JL),  more features and work with the one Samsung remote! Ideal for bedroom.
