Your next question is probably going to be: "What difference does it make if I have a 10mb Pal to NTSC converter or a 12 or even a 16MB converter?  That is probably the single most important thing you need to look at when purchasing a Code Free DVD Player that converts Pal to NTSC. You need to be very careful when comparing models, as all Code Free DVD Players / (Region Free DVD Players) are modified to be code free and have a Pal to NTSC converter built in. If the company you purchase from doesn't offer a lifetime guarantee like we do and doesn't say how many MB there video converters are you may not be comparing apples to apples. When purchasing a player from us you can rest assured that we use the highest quality of parts for our modifications, and we guarantee them for life.  Pal is the standard of broadcasting used in almost all the countries except for North America. Therefore if you are looking to view DVD movies from another country in the USA, they are most likely to be in the Pal format. In order to view Pal movies on a Standard TV in the USA (NTSC TV) you will need the DVD player to convert the Pal Signal to NTSC. The amount of (Megabits) MB used in the converter determines how your picture will look when you are playing movies that are Pal on your NTSC (North American) standard TV. We normally recommend at least a 8MB video converter.  If your TV is less than 27" big usually a 8mb or 10MB converter is enough to get a good picture quality.  For TVs that are 27"- 34" we normally recommend at least a 12MB video converter. And for all HD tv's, and Large screen TVs over 34" we recommend a 14MB or 16MB video converter.  If you are picky about the picture quality, going with a  16MB video converter will never hurt no matter how small your TV is.  Please remember not all code free modification are the same. When buying a dvd player modified by us, you can rest assured that the modification has been performed with the best chipsets and latest technology. That's why we can offer a lifetime all region guarantee on our modifications.  If you have a newer HDTV with DVI or HDMI inputs, please also look at dvd players with HDMI or DVI outputs to give you the best picture quality.
