I've been enjoying DVDs from all over the world for the past 2 years. I own all of Metrodome's Headmaster, Masterforce, Victory and RiD sets, Metrodome's "Transformers Movie Reconstructed", as well as all of Madman's incredibly flawless Beast Wars sets, their very awesome G1 boxset and their version of the animated movie. For those of you who don't know, Metrodome is based out of the UK and Madman is based out of Australia.
I don't need to hack any DVD player to play other countries DVD regions.
There is a extremly cheap DVD Brand called "COBY" that plays all DVD regions world wide. the Coby DVD player I buy is extremly small & has a pop up cover to inset the DVD in to play. I usually pay under $20 bucks for it. Walmarts & kmarts sell the Coby DVD players.
I went to amazonUK.com a few years ago & bought the metrodome complete japanese G-1 series & UK Rid series for like 75% off. All these dvd's played in my Cheap portable 6 inch by 6 inch dvd player.
ALSO I noticed my e-machines computer from walmart DVD player has no problem playing all the international DVD's. without the need to hack the dvd player on my computer.
