Just wondering because of a recent discussion in The Mutilator thread. So, are you region free?
I bought my region free Sony off of eBay last year and it was some of the best money I ever spent. If you're just a casual movie buyer, I get not investing in one, but if you consider yourself a "collector" then it's a must. They're extremely afforable now.
Yes, got my first DVD player in 1998 and my first Blu-ray player in 2009, both region free.
It's interesting how things have changed in that time. Over 90% of my DVD collection is imported (region 1/US) but probably less than 10% of my Blu-ray collection is imported (region A).
With most releases worldwide using the same HD transfer + much closer or simultaneous release dates + less censorship in the UK than before it's easier and cheaper just to pick up the local version for the majority of titles these days. Obviously a few horror flicks and Criterion Collection titles are the exception and I continue to import those.
I am region free with DVD but haven't bitten the bullet yet for blu. I'm sure I will at some point.
I agree entirely! The money was very well spent in my case too. I've had my region free Blu-ray player for two years now.
I have a Blu-ray drive that I connect to my Mac so yeah. Region free and loving it.
Of course. I've been region-free with both of my computer Blu-rays drives for years now, thanks to AnyDVD HD.
And I bought a multi-region Sony Blu-ray player last year for the TV. It plays anything I've thrown at it.
Hey, what's the model of the Sonys you guys are using? I have two players: One Region-A Sony, and an all-region Toshiba. The Toshiba is kinda flimsy with a horrible remote, so I only use it for region-free playback. The Sony is my workhorse. I'd love it if I could have a similar player that does everything
I have a hardware modified Sony BDP-S5200
The regions can be switched by the remote control, and it can convert PAL and handle those pesky 50/60hz Blu-rays also.
No - haven't had a need for it yet. Like Hook mentioned in that Mutilator thread, we're pretty spoiled here. I'm certainly a "collector" and have quite an extensive collection. If I weren't a gamer owning a PS3/4 then I most likely would own a region free player - if the prices are indeed comparable then there really doesn't seem to be a reason not to.
Yep. But I don't think I have any non Region A disks. Maybe one that I haven't watched yet. Shit, I've had the player for years now and I don't even know if it works for that. It does play all region DVDs good though.
I've had my Orei region-free blu-ray player for several years now. I love being able to order films on my wishlist without worrying if it will work. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, House on Haunted Hill (2000), The Dreamers, Rabid, Cemetery Man are examples of films I've recently ordered.
I've been region free on DVD since around 2008. When I upgraded to Blu in 2011, I made sure to get a player that was region free.
I have three options for region free bluray. A Laser BD2000 Bluray player, a laptop with AnyDvdHD installed and a PS3 with Custom Firmware which allows region free playback. I'm pretty well covered
I have mine since january.Best money i've spent in a long time!
Been region free on BD since 2009, when I got a drive for my HTPC.
Upgraded to an Oppo 93 in 2011, which I got a multi region chip for.
Worth every penny
Yes, I have an Insignia NS-WBRDVD2.
Only cost me $60.
Never owned a BD player that wasn't multi-region or a computer with a BD drive that did not have AnyDVD HD installed on it. I learned my lesson after I bought my first DVD player, which was region locked.
Region free Oppo BDP-103. Love it.
No - like Mutilated Prey - never had a need to buy a region free player.
