I didn't know it was region free, I guess I will have to start using it for that.

Thanks

Is it?  You may want to verify that.

By far the best (much better than the PS3) is the Oppo 981HD.  The 980HD is a good second choice.  Check reviews, you won't find a better upscaling unit.

FYI - just verified that the PS3 is NOT region-free for DVD movies.  It is region-free for games, however.

once again - fact checker john is on the case... sorry for the confusion...

(the blu rays can be region free, too - that is where the confusion came from, i have bought several imports that are region free, but they are blu not dvd)

Last summer I bought a Pioneer DV-393-S from Walmart that is region free and thus far will play everything I put in it.
I think the DV-400-K replaced it. The remote looks the same and functions quite well. Like the 393-S it upconverts. Could be worth checking out, especially for the price. Oh and my 393-S will play PAL disc just fine.
