    The Pioneer DVL-909 is a combi player (plays CDs, LDs and DVDs).
    I have one, too.

    About the DVD section, is an old basic player.
    About the LD section, is an average player for NTSC, quite good for PAL.

    It's a good choice to start if you have many PAL laserdiscs and some NTSC; you will eventually upgrade in the future.
    If you have only NTSC laserdisc, take a look at another player - a simple CLD-704 is better...

    I think a good price will be around 150-200 Euro if in good condition with the original remote. Check extensively the functions, in particular the side change.

    Greetings,

    For LD playback i would avoid the DVL players. The LD playback is on par with the average mid range players. Try and hunt down a CLD704.
