If you are like me, and just want a player to plug into a 15 year old TV and do a cheap and cheery job, then this is the item for you. Easy to set up, multi-region capable, and with a slim, modern design, this player, for its price, really cannot be beat. A word of warning to those who own PAL televisions - you will need to set the DVD player up to recognise your TV if you wish to play non-region 2 DVDs. This is not made clear either here, or in the instructions, but is easy to do. Simply go into the display screen, select Video, and then TV setup and then change from the 'Multi' setting to 'PAL'. Other than that little hitch, which almost caused the machine to be sent back, this is an excellent deal.
