    Hi all. Can anyone verify a couple of points regarding the Toshiba 220E, which I am about to order.
    1. Is it only available in silver?
    2. Does it play home authored DVD-R?

    I am going to get it pre-modded for mulitiregion, and the last machine I bought was supplied multiregion from Techtronics. Now before you all start crossing yourselves and chanting mantras to calm down, I had no problems.
    This time I thought I would try an alternative source - who do you guys recommend for supply of this model? What's the best modded price you've seen?
    Any 220E owners out there with any pertinent info to add?

    All info much appreciated.

    I haven't had mine for long (a few days infact) so can't really give much info on it but I can confirm it plays DVD-R disks that I recorded on my DMRE20.

    Give Multiregion Magic a whirl - I've seen some good recommendations on DVD Reviewer (where I moderate) for these guys.

    220e for £169 multiregion, or £199 with VCR Friendly option too :)

    Yes I second that - that is where I purchased mine from - although I only went for the Multi-Region mod rather than the Multi-Region and Video mod.
