The Pacific Ocean is three times bigger than Asia, the biggest continent on Earth. It covers nearly one-third of the Earth's surface. Its widest part is about 1,770 km or 11,000 miles. That distance would take you halfway around the world.

When I was in Hong Kong over Christmas, I was researching the current DVD Players models that were in the shops - focusing on the fact that the UK Players were encoded to Region 2 only...

I also took some time to research on and noticed that the price of a relatively "cheap" model was pretty similar about £40-£50 - so I decided that it wasn't worth the effort or risk of trying to purchase it in Hong Kong and taking it through Customs

Instead, by reading the reviews on Amazxon it appeared that some models were actually Region-Free by means of entering a "special code" - making these quite an attractive buy! I also though about the quality of purchase, and it appeared that a £40 DVD Player was generally similar in manufacturing quality assurance than an £80 one.

When I came back, I decided to make the purchase in prepartion for my new place - or as a back-up to my current place - whose Aiwa DVD Player was over 10 years old already - wow - and still going strong!!

The Philips models seemed pretty good - so I decided to purchase the "Philips DVP 5990" model.

To make it region-free, I followed some nice intructions I located on a forum...:

  1. Press "Setup"
  2. Select the "Preference" Tab
  3. Press 1,3,8,9,3,1
  4. Press the up / down key to select "0" and hit "Setup" to exit.
And voila!!! A region-free DVD Player for £40 from within the UK!
