Summary: I've only just received this item so don't have much to say yet except that it is NOT region free, at least not straight away...as others have mentioned, a sticker on the box states that it's region FREE, the manual says it's region THREE, try and play a region 2 disc and it doesn't work.
Summary: This machine has good upconverting HD quality, and is indeed code free, but this player lacks some basic features that other budget DVD players have (Philips, e.g.). It lacks any native means of rendering a 4:3 pillar box image (if your TV lacks a means of rendering 4:3 from an HD image, the 4:3...
Summary: Very nice player. The height is fairly small, making it a nice addition for a small video system. My only real complaint (so far) is that that player does not seem to be "region free" per the Amazon description and the sticker on the outside of the box.
Cannot really review this item because HDMI cable bought with it appears to be faulty

Summary: This DVD player is potentially pretty good (my HDTV is also a Toshiba) but the HDMI cable bought along with it (from DVI Gear) appears to be defective - i.e., after being properly connected and configured, the HDMI cable will not provide a video signal to my HDTV.
