There's the DV-220V-K (US Version) and the DV-220KV-K (European/Asia Version) aka "K" Version. Please note, the extra "K" in the second model stands for Karaoke and will come with a microphone Jack and echo effects knob in the front for optional karaoke. For whatever reason they are both listed as just the DV-220V-K on the title page, but if you double check on the product details & model number below, the region free one should indicate DV-220"K"V-K.
Here's where it gets a bit technical...
Some of the "K" versions from Europe (Region 2) were originally designed to handle 220v-240v (this is not what you want for use in the US). But most "K" Versions from Asia like Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia or Singapore should indicate on the back of the unit that it will handle voltages ranging from 110v-240v just like most laptop adapters do, making them more suitable for international usage. The K Versions comes standard with an European/Asia Pin type Power Cord, but the sellers should give you a U.S. Prong adapter Plug to fit into U.S. Socket Outlets, because it was not originally intended for the USA. Also note, The US version (Region 1) can only handle 110V.
The "K" Version also has a twin wave laser pick up system,(which reduces noise and increases the units durability, since 1 laser is dedicated to playing CDs and the other laser is dedicated to playing just DVDs) and it's the only "TRUE" Region Free Player, because it has the Dual system Playback ability to handle both NTSC (USA DVVDs) and PAL (European & Asia DVDs) disc formats. The US Version can only handle NTSC, but not PAL format.
This would explain why some buyers who purchased the player and got the US Region Free version, complained that it wouldn't play some of their discs, b/c it's probably a PAL formatted disc and you need a region free that handles both NTSC& PAL, so be sure to check the seller's note to make sure you're getting the region free K Version, aka DV-220"K"V-K.
So, I did have some doubts -but, since I really needed a DVD player that could play both US and Japanese region DVDs, for my young daughter, I decided to give it try.
I too received the, "DV-220KV-K" model with the Karoke function (which is not the exact model advertised in the Amazon product details), which came with a European prong (but, also included an US prong adapter).
I still do get the sense that there might be something fishy going on with this model so that it does fuction as a "Region Free" player ....but for me I have been able to play both US and Japanese DVDs with absolutely no issue, and at this price, I have no complaints.
Update on Dec. 15, 2011 -Sorry to say, my unit just stopped working properly...I Google'd the issue and found out that it seems many users have experienced the exact same problem.
The unit suddenly locked up and the following message came onto the screen:
(Player's Region Setting)
<1> : Region
<2> : Region
<3> : Region
<4> : Region
<5> : Region
<6> : Region
Pick out any one of these!
The message stays on the screen and locks the remote, so the region numbers cannot be selected..
When the power is turned on it displays "ON" ->"480P" ->"Load", then ultimately shows a "rE61" (which appears to indicate "Reg 1") and locks up.
Based on my Google search of various tech. forums, no one has found a resolve, other than returning the product to Amazon. (It sounds like the Pioneer warranty is void because there is no such thing as a region free player...)
So guess it was too good to be true after all- nice while it worked, but have no choice but to change my star rating from 5 to 1.
