    i think most Region 1 players are NTSC only, but you can get a 110 -> 240v convertor pretty cheap.

    slightly off topic, but i had a Sony DAV-S800 and i had no problems at all with it. I only got shot of it when i upgraded my kit.

    Well, I too own a Sony Player. This particular one is a very good one. colour definintion is particularly much better than my previous 2 models (panasonic and Samsung).

    Although news is that the Sony players have no error correcton when playing DVD's and have the most sensitive pick up lens (romour has it you will start getting problems playing disks after a couple of years depending on it's useage). Basically what this means, is that if you are into buying asian R0 copies you may get glitches in them or may stop playing at some point whereas other players will handle them perfectly.

    Oh, and I only found out about this AFTER I had bought it, but so far I am happy with mine - touch wood. !

    I had no problems with the sound and picture quality. It was the mechanics of the changer that kept getting stuck/failing to pick up discs/scratching discs/discs getting stuck etc.
    Sony said I should remove all the discs once a month and clean them so the sensor would detect them better, but removing the the discs wiped the memory.
    This meant you had to re-type the titles of the films into the menu for the discs that didnt automatically register, which was about 85% of them.
