    About $264 SHIPPED from nbtelectronics.com

    New firmware and upgrade switch on the back of these.

    You can NOT go wrong with this player...

    It is by far the best for the money...

    If budget is an issue, go with the Daewoo DVD5700 available for $99.95 at just about any Sam's Warehouse store.
    Then go to this link:
    http://www.dvd-wizards.com/darrenk/D...-5700patch.htm
    This site tells you how to make the 5700 region free and RCE proof with the supplied remote control. No region changing is needed once the unit is set up, and any disc plays when you load it.
    It does not offer progrssive output, but it has quite good picture quality and component outputs.
    It offers decent onboard PAL to NTSC conversion and vise versa.
    The player's firmware is upgradeable by CD-ROM, and the above site also offers firmware upgrades that tweak the player for best performance and versatility.
    For $99.99 it's a no brainer.

    I just ordered the Malata, first at AVDeals and then at NBTElectronics. I canceled the one with AVDeals. Those people are amateurs in my mind.
