    I'm looking at buying a region free DVD player. Problem is, I know little about these things.
    I have this TV:

    and I'm looking at getting one of these two players, unless you have other recomendations?

    Does anyone know if these two will work with my set? Or can someone reccomend another player that plays both PAL and NTSC DVD's?

    i have the Daewoo DVD-5800 and it will work but it will only work with 4:3 full screen dvd's or non-anamorphic dvd's
    16:9 anamorphic dvds will be messed up other than that its good
    but don't pay the $149.95 you can get the un modified version at sam club for $89.99

    the region free set up is very easy as well as the macrovision

    Go with a modded JVC or Malata. They will handle the anamorphic DVDs. The above choices cost more, but with this type of equipment you get what you pay for.

    I got a Malata 520, which so far is working pretty good. PAL plays fine, as do other regions.
