Multi Region DVD Player (Germany)

I am planning to buy a multi region DVD Player over here but so far I have been unable to find a multi region player anywhere. I would be so grateful if anyone could tell me what this particular feature (multi region) is called over here and where I can find one (if they're hard to find). Thank you very much.

I'd say try to get a good one but I don't know any good brands..   However, mine's PHILIPS. It had a advertisement on the box, saying, "You got it, we play it" LOL and that's no joke. That thing plays every disc we got. Including bootleg movie copies!

I don't know if it helps, but in Belgium, they're called "Region Free" players. I think most of the dvd players over here are region free, we bought one for only 49 a few months ago.

Hah, that's great! That sounds like the one I just read about on Amazon. One reviewer on the site said it would even read the daily newspaper if they tried to put it in the player.

Thank you Cristiel, so do you think if it doesn't say anything in the description, it will play Region 1 DVDs for example? Or would it be better to go in a store and check there?

I still have my Bumblebee DVD which I want to see.

We do have a Philips DVD player as one, we payed 200 for it, it's region free. The other one is some "white product" as we call it (no famous brand) and I was utterly surprised to see that it could play my "Bumblebee" DVD 

I would check, Carina, just to make sure it can play both region 1 and 2. That way, you won't be disappointed when you get home and the thing refuses to play you precious DVD.

Thanks Cristiel for getting back to me, I'm glad both players played your DVD, that's really great.

Yeah, I think I'll head to the store this week and see what they come up with.

By the way, and this won't be a surprise, but I love your GSH Icon!!

P.S. Do you know how frustrating it is to have a DVD and not being able to watch it?

You're welcome 

I bought the EE of FotR before we had bought our dvd and I wanted to watch it so badly that I would've done anything to see it. So I can pretty much imagine what you are going through right now.

I hope you'll find your dvd player soon
