Summary: This is the worst dvd player I have ever used. If you use the HDMI out your aspect ratios are wrong and you can't change them on the unit or the TV. With the composite video out full frame dvds play right but all the other aspect ratios are wrong and again can't be corrected with the unit.
Summary: This DVD player is a basic no frills unit but performs its job well dealing with muliti-region DVD discs that I own from Europe, the Far East and of course the USA. It comes with a European two pin round plug and you either have to get an adapter or change the plug for use in the USA but it works...
Summary: It's a pretty decent region-free DVD player, especially now that Philips produces total crap, pardon my French. There is one issue, especially for those who buy a region free player for old Hollywood movies only available on DVD in the UK (I would just move there if I spoke the language :).
Summary: I bought this player to view DVD's I had purchased from the UK that would not play on my other DVD players. Set up was easy and the instructions were straight forward. I played a DVD from the US and then one from the UK. Both played fine.
Summary: The announcement of the device was wrong, said the device was Multiregional because I bought to watch DVDs from any region here in Brazil, which is Region 4 and Region 1 received a unit that returned.
Summary: This is my second XDE600. I bought one from B&H 2 years ago & I use it so much that before I wear it out I decided to buy another before they're gone from the marketplace. The picture is as close to HD as you can get without actually being HD.
Summary: We watch a lot of PAL version DVDs so this worked out great for us. The various inputs make use of many formats and the up-converting feature works perfectly for a higher quality image. I DO NOT like a black remote especially the one that comes with this model.
