    Do any members have any advice on purchasing a portable DVD player from the US. With the good exchange rates the prices look tempting. Can any of the players be changed from region 1 to multi region?

    Be wary of import tax - you can check on Govt Excise duties website value of goods which would need tax paid - some companies may pay the tax for you ( merconnet comes to mind).

    I bought one a few years back when on holiday there. It is a Panasonic LV60 and have since found out it cannot be changed to muti region maily dure to the playback via PAl etc.
    I found a web site in the uk that supplied mods to all portable DVD's, my model included, and thjey wer the ones who told me it couldn't be done with a US bought machine.
