I just happen to really like DVD players that can handle DivX. Of course, this has nothing at all to do with the BitTorrent/DVD-RW combination that allows you to fit up to 6 movies per disc. No, see, I just like knowing that my player can do cool stuff.

This particular model, the D900SX from Evergreen, for instance, can handle the now two month old DivX 6.0, and has the ability to play DivX 5.0.5 files at 119fps. It’s in English and plays PAL/NTSC. Some tinkering from GeekStuff4U has also made it region free. My question now, of course, is why exactly I’d want to play video at 119fps. Any ideas, anyone?

It looks sort of neat, and you can get it for $97, right here. Story VIA Akihabara.


  1. 120 fps happens to be the least common multiple of 24 and 30 fps. When such clips are shuffled together the end result becomes 120 fps with lots of dropped frames. It is a way of doing resampling.
