Any Portable Region-Free DVD Players?

Can anyone recommend or suggest a portable DVD player that's region free and can handle both PAL/NTSC? I'd prefer something under $150.

Thanks.

You can make many potrable DVD players from Philips region free just by using remote, reatively easy. Codes are available on many websites, just google model and region free. This way it would be much less expensive than ordering region free player from websellers.

Yeah, I'm not looking for a modded region free player from a webseller. I'm looking for something I can order from Amazon. Then punch in an all-region code. And I also need it to do good PAL/NTSC conversion.

Thanks for the heads up on the Philips. I think the Coby can be made region free as well.

Any other recommendations?

PAL/NTSC shouldn't be an issue on anything with a built-in screen, just as it isn't on a computer. Some DVD players simply refuse to play any PAL discs though (they give you an error message) so that should be checked for.
