Excellent - USB, DIvX/.avi, Multi-region - all you need and a steal.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips DVP5960 - Multi-Region Capable DVD Player With HDMI And Upscaling To 1080i - Black (Electronics)Works straight out of the box, no need for updated firmware. Compatible with standard USB pen drive, plays .avi and jpeg no problem. As noted in a previous review you have to follow these steps to switch to multi-region:
1. Switch unit on
2. Open the loading tray
3. Press the "Setup" button on the remote
4. Navigate to the "Preferences" page using the right arrow key
5. Enter 138931
6. You will now see the current region code displayed
7. Use the Up/Down arrow keys to select the region required or "0" for all regions
8. Press the "Setup" button on the remote
9. Press "OK" on the remote
Tried it this morning and it works. I can't believe this unit is so inexpensive. So far having played Region 1, Region 2, and .avi/DivX/jpeg from USB and DVD the unit performs well. Sound is crystal, picture quality faultless. Unit itself is sturdy enough, some people complained about the remote but it's fine - comfortable and intuitively styled.
Excellent service from Amazon too I'd have to add (next day delivery was by 9am on a Saturday)
A note too on the review from 17th Nov by Maca - although not indicated there IS a FastForward/ReWind facility with speeds up to x32, you just use the left/right selection buttons on the remote.

Thank you very much for this information. In my instruction manual there were no instructions about setting the region code. Thanks!
