Don’t get me wrong — I think the DVD format is awesome. I just hate the stupid region encoding imposed by big media companies on their DVD releases. I mean, God forbid I should want to broaden my tastes with something produced on another continent!
Fortunately a little research hipped me to this Philips DVD727, a cheap home player with very advanced features and the ability to hack the region hobbling on any DVD. How cheap is it, you ask? Well, I picked one up at Wal-Mart yesterday for seventy-nine bucks!
