Great little player,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips DVP3520/05 DVD Player (DivX,USB MP3 Creation and Progressive Scan) (Electronics)Bought this as a replacement for a Toshiba player that didn't like ejecting discs! It also replaces a couple of failed attempts at getting a simple / cheap media player to play DIVX files.
This player fits the bill very well - it's a nice compact DVD player and has a USB port on the front, which is great to plug in a flash drive.
The only slightly frustrating thing is that I can't find any info about what the USB compatibility is. So far I've tried a Lexar 4Gb flash drive and that works fine. It plays all the DIVX files that I've thrown at it yet.
The remote is good and responsive and not as angle dependant as my previous players. It does have a slightly cheap appearance, though, which is a shame as the player looks very sleek.
Overall, I would recommend it highly.
Player died after less than 18 months - total failure. Not impressed and, needless to say, did not replace with a Philips player (Philips refused to fix and the best they offered was a 20% discount code to use on their website - this didn't even bring things down to Amazon prices).

How does one make that one region-free? Or multi region???

Not tested by me as I haven't needed to play any multi-region discs yet, but a quick internet search gives the following (which is the same unlock code as some of the earlier Philips models):
1. Open loading tray
2. Go to preference page
3. Enter "138931"
4. Press up or down to set region code 0
5. Press setup
And just to warn anyone that doesn't know - I think doing this may invalidate the warranty...
