The only difference difference between the models is the regieon on which it
is used.

Othere than that the units are identical in performance and features

This guy spammed the internet with this trash. The 951 is at least a 3 - 4
years old model. From what I've read it doesn't play mp3. dvd-r/dvd-rw/ some
vcd and svcd.

Stick with the 642 its a great player with a playback format guearantee. If
it can't play a particular format they'll refund your purchase price.

No, they definitely play them. But there may be some flavors of DivX that
can't be played, depending on what Codec was used.

i agree...believe it or not..i have seen maybe one divx that wont play.
if you get a scrambled video try switching the video output to 4:3 standard
to 4:3 letter box or 16X9
my brother showed me the trick

I hope so since that's the main selling point of that particular player.

The only divx/xvid video that I've found that won't play are ones that are
encoded using either the QPEL or GMC options.
