Any Opinions on the Viability of this Region Free DVD Player?
Hi everyone.... I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this region free dvd player:

<small>Live eBay link removed & replaced</small>

It is not a brand that I've read about here and am curious as to whether anyone out there is familiar with this unit and has any opinions.

Your responses / opinions are greatly appreciated.

It's nice looking and all that, but based on the face buttons I'd say it's another Sampo clone. Given that, I'd say that the player will do all it says and you'll be happy with it, but don't expect a good PAL to NTSC transfer - especially on anamorphic discs. I didn't see anything about it at the nerd-out forums, so it must be really new.

Thanks Trigger. That's kind of what I thought as well....

Anyone else???

I'm not so sure that it's a Sampo-clone, as there's no mention of this player on the Area 450 site.

After doing research, it looks like a Lasonic clone.

In any case, as far as we know - only DVD players with the mediamatics chip can do a proper conversion of PAL to NTSC as of yet.
