In January 2009 I purchased (through Amazon) form this seller a Phillips DVP3140 All Region Code Free DVD. After I had placed the order I was contacted by VCT and told that the item was no longer being made. The salesperson told me that the LG 271K-W1 was the "best" substitute for the one I had ordered. I increased my purchase from them for that item and put it away until I had the new television. I had checked to make sure the power worked etc... but didn't have a multi-system to hook it up too. Just ..
I purchased this to download Babylon 5 VCR tapes to my laptop. It worked fine, using a KWorld DVD maker USB 2.0 for video capture (about $29.00 at various sites). Sound and video quality were fine. If you want to play PAL format tapes on NSTC TV, you'll also need a converter, but the KWorld (or other video capture units) obviate that requirement for downloading to a computer. The unit will also play VCR tapes in NTSC format, and dvd's in either PAL or NSTC format. Real bargain for the price!
