Back in 1996 the dutch Wehkamp catalogue advertized a lot about CD-i players. The original 490 player was brand new and it cost 700 guilders (approximately 300 dollars) and the 210 player was prices at 1700 guilders (around 800 dollars). I feel that the price difference between the players was huge, and what does the 210 offer more? These prices were published in 1996; Philips already abandoned the format, but the prices stayed as high as they were during its launch!
