Good looking slim and compact player, plug in and ready to go instantly. It can be made region free by the following steps:

1) Turn on the dvd player
2) Press the eject/stop button on the dvd player (not the remote) to open the tray, and leave it open!
3) On the remote press 98790 (if done right, a message will appear stating that region has been changed to 0)
4) Done

worked first time for me and plays all my USA region 1 dvds

The Toshiba SD1015KB DVD Player is a basically a budget DVD player that does all the standard run-of-the-mill stuff that all other DVD player do. It's no frills but does the job well. However, the real perk with this particular model (aside from the very competitive price tag) is that it's an absolute doddle to convert it into a Region Free DVD player (i.e. you can play discs from any region on it).

The DVD player takes SCART Leads (as opposed to the more recent move over to HDMI) and has only one input for the SCART. It also comes with Toshiba's standard bottom-of-the-range remote control which is the same remote that comes with many of Toshiba's budget range. But it does the job. And that's pretty much all you want from it!

One small point to mention about the DVD player is that it makes a bit of noise when loading up a disc. You'll hear the motor starting up, the low rumble of the discs whizzing around and all that sort of jazz. It also takes a bit of time to kick in...so a bit of patience is necessary. Nothing to really get your knickers in a twist about, but probably worth mentioning nevertheless.

Anyway, on to the region code hack. Now I'm not going to merely repeat the process which has already been included in the other review(s) on here. But I can confirm that it works. And once it's done - that's it, region free for good. Furthermore, for anyone who's still just a tad sceptical...I've included a video with this review showing the process being performed be my wife and I.

So there you go. A budget DVD player that does the job, but more importantly, it can be turned into a multi-region DVD player in a matter of minutes. Nice!

After my old DVD stopped working (with some help from my little daughter) I was in the market for another one. I wanted something cheap as we only really use a DVD player for various children's DVDs and I was concerned that it might receive similar punishment to the last one. This was cheap, it works, and can be easily made region-free, but I would not recommend it for anyone who has children, because it lacks a proper "pick up where you left off" memory function. So every time the DVD player is switched off, you have to go through the whole 5-minute "CopyRight Warning / DVD production company video / little Peppa Pig intro song / etc. etc." again before you can get back to the menu; or if half-way through a film, you have to get back to the same place. Since we rarely if ever watch an entire DVD in one sitting, this is a major pain - though I'm sure for those who just put in a DVD to watch it the whole way through, it would not be such an issue. It is also extremely noisy when you first put a DVD in.

This would be an impressive enough DVD player anyway, given the look, quality and price of it. But the added bonus of being able to bypass all that spitefully inconvenient region coding nonsense with the hack which has been so thoughtfully provided by 'Gary' makes it even more versatile. You just type in that code once (in my case, as soon as the thing was plugged in, after only the very briefest of introductions) and the machine, realising you have outwitted it, declares itself to be 'Region 0' without any further fight whatsoever.

This is slim and it is sleek. Despite the fact that I am hurtling rather reluctantly towards middle age, I have no problems with reading the buttons on the remote control (that remote control takes 2 AAA batteries by the way, which are included). The DVD player comes with no leads, but I daresay everybody's got a SCART cable in the back of a cupboard somewhere. There is also the option to use something called a 'composite video jack' (or 'CVBS') - whatever that might be. Sensing I was out of my depth even by learning of its apparent existence, I decided to stick to my SCART lead, which I simply plugged in to the back of it and that was that.

You will need the remote control in order to explore the vast majority of what this machine can do. There is no volume control on it either, so you might need to sit there armed with the TV remote as well.

Just bought this to replace a Sony DVD player that had stopped playing DVD after just a few months of use. I thought the Sony DVD was a poor purchase but at least it worked for a few months which makes it a bargain in comparison to this piece of rubbish.

The new Toshiba has failed to adequately play any of the 3 DVDs I've placed in it. I'm instead greeted with a mixture of large pixelated blocks, jagged lines across the screen, constant pauses, then leaps forward a few seconds or to the next chapter.

I don't know which brand to turn to next as I've lost faith in both Sony and Toshiba. I just want a DVD player that will actually play DVDs.
