Well, it's easy to make region free :
- Open the DVD tray, be sure to be in stop mode
- Now press SETUP KEY
- Now press NEXT , PREV , NEXT , PREV
- On screen you will see VERSION 2
- Select 255 for Region Free (using left and right)
- Press Setup Key to save settings
From what i can see of the specs , it looks very crappy to me (then again , what do you expect for such little money).
It seems to have a crappy remote control (looks very cheap) , but overall it comes out quite nice in reviews i fond everywhere.
