    I'm going to Japan for the next 12 months, and will upgrade my DVD player while there...or bring my XBOX with me (if not - hence the post before I leave)

    I need a region free PAL/NTSC player, and am wondering how readily available they are in Japan, and how much I should expect to pay...

    I've tried to do a bit or research myself, to no avail so far, so i thought I'd try my luck here...

    Anybody know of any/many players?
    Any good/bad brands to look out for/avoid?
    What kind of features?
    Estimated prices?
    Possibility of DVD-Recorders?

    Even any links to English websites, which might be able to help me out, would be greatly appreciated - as I have had no luck so far...

    Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to help me out here...

    Daniel

    The JVC 502SL or 602 SL is probably the only one I can be sure you'll find in Japan.

    Other than that, the usual Malata recommendation works, but I don't know about availability. Go to Akihabara in Tokyo, I'm sure you can find one there

    Thanks Jeff,

    I want to be sure the PAL/NTSC region free players are available over there, that's all.

    Does the JCV have those features?
