Perfectly Fine for playing Region 1 and 2 DVDs,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony DVP-SR170 Multi-Region DVD Player (Electronics)
I'm not sure why some reviewers are saying it doesn't play Region 1 DVDs or needs hacking in order to do so: I just switched it on, inserted my Canadian documentary about Stan Brakhage and away we went! Then I tried a Region 2 DVD and that was perfectly OK as well.
The best thing for me about this, apart from the price is that it has no front display/blinking lights/numbers - so you can get as close to a Cinema environment as I've had with a DVD player. Picture quality and stability seem fine, build quality is very good. Yes, it does have a short mains lead, but hey....
