Here too...

As long as the price is less than just ordering from Nintaus direct and there is no Macrovision, region-free and is a VGA port.

I'm in the market, just trying to figure out which $300 DVD is going to give me the best picture on a Zenith 895X FPTV. I await more reviews from someone who owns one of these Nintaus. Thanks

madman0,
I would contact Stacey and make arrangements to loan him your evaluation unit for testing. This could do a great deal towards generating interest in the player. Many people are interested in the Nintaus, but are looking for more test results/user evaluations.

nekobus, i am up for the testing with Mr. Stacey. I will pop him a email tonight. i totally agree with you.

as you guys know.. as the amount of unit increase, the price will go down.. i am trying to import ths in larger quantity.

The unit as it is, is REGION FREE, along with another feature that is common from china made DVD player. While the region may be able to stay, the other special feature have to go if i am to import them in the quantity that i want.

please send a email to sales@techreactions.com with a subject "nintaus pdvd-n9769" if you are interested.

No Interest if it doesn't scale non-Anamorphic DVD's like the RP91. And if course buying this unknown before it has been reviewed by several reputable reviewer is a MUST!

I'm very interested.. given the fact that this player:
1. Convert NTSC -> PAL perfectly like the Malata.
2. Region free (which it seems like it)
3. Progressive VGA out for NTSC & PAL.

Edit - to clarify, I AM interested in one of these US based units if the RGB shifting problem is fixed. (I'm pretty sure that the subtitle problem can be fixed with new firmware, and I don't rely on conversion most of the time, but it is handy)

If only these were true...

In my experience, the PAL<->NTSC conversion is always at the correct aspect ratio, but it can look stuttery if the material is mis-authored, and the subtitles always have nasty streaks in them making them difficult to read, at least with the current firmware revision...

The Progressive VGA out ifor NTSC and PAL is just as good as the Skyworth, except that on the Nintaus, the rightmost 3-5% of the screen is shifted down by a few scanlines, causing an odd seam. If you crop the overscan, this doesn't mattter, but I want full overscan, so the Skyworth is better in this respect.

When would you be able to ship the units out if an order is placed with you?
