This distributor (WorldWide Distributors) handled the all-region demand the right way. The item came sealed because the distributor didn't tamper with it. If you get a player from the US that plays all-region out of the box, the seller opened it and entered the code. This item was simply packaged with the sealed player and a sheet of very simple instructions for entering the code. I entered it and it played perfectly.
I immediately tried a region 1 disc, then a PAL region 2, then a region 3, and back to region 1. No hiccups, no video quality problems. You may want to buy a cheap HDMI cable to get the 1080p options. I tested it with component hookups and it looks great, but without the HDMI cable it may stretch all full-screen TV shows to wide. It comes with one composite cable.
Buy without hesitation.
in addition to the picture fading from dark to light, 'thor' also stopped playing in the middle of the movie, to show me a copyright protection warning. i was able to restart the movie where it left off after going to 'scene selections', but again, this clearly IS NOT something that should be happening.
all the online forums that discuss this problem talk about it happening when the tv is hooked up through a vcr player...this is not true to my setup- this dvd player is hooked straight to my tv, because both are newer models- it IS NOT an issue of an older appliance trying to sync with a newer one.
i really wanted to keep this dvd player, as i needed one that played all region dvds, but i am afraid i will have to try another. i would not recommend it.
I compared various similar models before settled on this one. First of all, I have very good experience with electronics by Philips, so I do have very good faith on this model. Secondly, my family is searching for a region free DVD player because we have a big collection of DVDs with different regions. On top on that, we have VCDs too that we need a player that can play our VCD collections. Last but not least, the price of this model is inexpensive based on all the functions it carries.
Before I purchased this model, I noticed some reviews that indicate some issues about setting the player into region free mode. I am happy to say that I did not encounter any of those issues - I did not need to change any setting or key in any code, it is region free and can play DVDs that we have with various regions. We also tried our VCDs, all came out fine. The setting is not hard for us to navigate through, and the image quality is great. The only thing that my husband and I struggled a little bit is to adjust the image size. It took us a while to settle on one screen size we like (although not the ideal one we look for), but overall we are ok with what we set.
As for remote control - Based on my previous experience with my "dead" remote control, I became quite picky with the remote control of this model. It is fairly small, but with all the functions I need. It is easy to use. However, you do need to precisely point at the player when you click the remote control to make sure the player receives the "command".
So far we use the player for watching DVD and VCD. We haven't tried other functions yet.
Overall, this is a good model, and our family has been satisfied with our experience since we have this product. I hope this model can last very long - maybe another 20 years!
