Since so many people constantly whine about PAL sources not playing in the USA, it seems like a good idea for folks who have (or know of) a player that'll do it to list the brand and model number.
It'll make it easier for those who haven't yet gotten a converting player to find one.
Since the great majority of the best shows are PAL, this item is a necessity, not a luxury.

Searchable technical specification of various players, recorders, capturing cards you can find at VideoHelp (http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers). Another site which provides useful info is Club CDFreaks (http://club.cdfreaks.com).

numerous threads about this here already, but pretty much most of the cheap dvd players you can buy a WallyMart or similar will play anything -- PAL, NTSC, data discs, etc...there are numerous namebrand players that are multi-system as well, such as these (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?ci=0&shs=multi-system+DVD+player&sb=ps&pn=1&sq=desc&InitialSearch=yes&O=jsp%2Fproductlist.jsp&A=search&Q=*&bhs=t&Go.x=0&Go.y=0&Go=submit)

the "cheapo" brands i can remember offhand would be Apex, Cyberhome, Coby, ILO, Durabrand, etc

I have an Oppo 981HD which I love, no complaints.

Doesn't do dishes or laundry.
