Summary: We bought this machine because we heard that it could be used for movies that were not region 1. We tried our regular machine and were it could not be used. THIS MACHINE.....best purchase from wal mart that I have made so far. Picture quality is great and works great on movies purchased from the UK. Cheap but perfect. No where else could tell me where to get a machine like this so thanks wal mart. Buy this machine and you will not be disappointed.
Summary: I had Dvd that was in PAL-india made(indian movie) I can play those DVD without any problem on my NTSC TV.I had samsung blue ray player but it was not playing same dvd. if you are looking for DVD player that can play PAL/NTSC coded DVD than this is good one to buy. i can play dvd that was burned with movie.
Summary: For $24.99, you can't go wrong. Other players do have better definition, and the interface is down right ugly, but it does play nearly every disc you load into it, and thanks to some time spent researching Region Codes on the internet, I found a way to make it Region-free!(go to Videohelp.com, and look under Curtis DVD 1041C for the hack) Resume play only works when you leave the player on.
Summary: I purchased mine in July of 2011, by middle of October it was already having trouble. From the beginning you have to basically be about 2 feet away from the unit to use the remote otherwise it's just a crap shoot. Now it's been about a week the it seems to freeze up, and not be able to play much. Buy another brand!!!!
