I hate it when I see beautiful pictures of the LG GDI700 CD-i player below and I ask myself why they never released it it the Netherlands. The Netherlands had, of all countries, the most popular and biggest CD-i fan-base! Maybe I never paid enough attention to it, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen a non-Philips branded CD-i player here. Was it because Philips didn't allow for it, or was it because LG thought the dutch market was too small to invest in. To tease us 'dutchies' even more, look at the beautiful pictures below of a brand-new LG GDI 700 cd-i player and also a mint box of the Goldstar CD-i version of the Philips 450 CD-i player. I think honestly this LG player (or the DVS equivalent) is the most beautiful model ever released, and, also important, it offers a replaceable timekeeper battery which means it doesn't die like our Philips consumer models will!
