    Default short of getting a new DVD player, anywhere i can buy Region 3 DVD locally?

    hi folks!

    hope there are some DVD-philes can help me out here? i'm into collecting old (circa 1950s-1960s, and some 1970s) movies. problem is places like amazon and barnesandnoble.com only sell region 1 DVDs. my home DVD player only works for region 3. short of getting a new mult-region DVD player, is there any place or any online shops dat sells really old movies in region 3?

    carrefour used to stock those value-pack $10 DVD. but, lately, they stop stocking the old titles and replaced them with newer movies. sigh....

    ps: dun bother suggesting to go JB and buy 'friendly' copies, hor?

    think 'the king and i', 'guns of navaron', 'the eagle has landed', 'sands of iwo jima', 'battle of midway', the entire 'dirty harry' series..... and u'll get my idea of 'old movies'...

    NW, why not a new DVD player ? Some of the cheaper brands sell for less than $100, and multi-region to boot.

    Or if you queued up at Giant Marina yesterday, spend $30 on groceries and get an LG free

    i think just get a new DVD player?

    maybe an ENZER or AKIRA one will suffice?

    actually brands like philips, pioneer are region free, only minority still stuck with the 'rules & regulations' of using region lock, like sony... besides, sony can't read majority of the media as well... sometimes the cheapest seems to be the best to read all medias, like someone mention the enzer & akira ones... only thing to differentiate is quality over compatibility...

    Just a warning: The oldies you find in Singapore may be unlicensed (no matter how many green stickers are pasted on it). So buy at your own risk.

    I suggest buying a new DVD player. It will be better in the long run.
