I have a samsung sv-5000w and have had it for about 2 years.It not only plays British(pal) tapes but converts them to the USA(ntsc) mode. . I usually watch the tapes from back home and then transfer some of them for my mates.

I have the same model but for about 2.5yrs. No problems with it at all.

I've wanted one for a while but at the cheapest new it's $300 USD, vs a regionless DVD player that you can get for under $100.
