quartz's review of Panasonic SC-HT520

Panasonic SC-HT520

“Don't be fooled as I was! ”

Bad Points
A deliberate deception of the customer

General Comments
Don't be fooled as I was!

I specifically bought the Panasonic SC-HT520 model because it was billed as an "all region" player and I have a collection of region 1 dvds, many of which are just not available in other formats.

It turns out that what "all region" means is that it will play dvds marked "ALL" instead of with a specific region. Thus my region 1 collection remains unplayable. Worse, there appears to be no crack for this particular model, meaning I am lumbered with a useless pile of junk.

I therefore rate this player 0 in all categories and urge you to boycott this and all other region restricted players until this stupidity is overthrown

Hmmm, yes, but why do that when you can buy a region free player from any number of suppliers, including your local supermarket, for under £30?
<br>Vote with your wallet and destroy the region coding nonsense!
