Default What do we like for region-free 3D BR Players These Days?

Am expanding where I buy from in order to get things not released in 3D here in the States.

What is a good 3D BR player that will play blu-ray discs from other regions?

I bought an s5500 Sony from Amazon. They sent an s6500 which upscales to 4k and does something else that nobody does but I forgot what that was. It's been working for 3 months without a hiccup. That's not long, I know. One thing I don't like about it is that it streams poorly, often glitching, as does an older Sony player I have.

I've had a Sony s5200 modded from 220 electronics for close to 2 years now without issue. When I got it I was super excited to import everything, but so far Ive actually only ever gotten 2 region B things - Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 3D and Rattatoulie 3d.

I am anticipating needing one of these for T2: 3D from UK. But hopefully it ends up region-free! Thanks for the suggestions so far.

I’m starting to think this may be necessary soon. Are there any 4K ultra HD players that will play 3D movies region free?

The Oppo UDP-203/UDP-205 with a region free mod kit.

Also see http://www.220-electronics.com/regio...y-players.html

If you already own an Oppo, see the following link http://watershade.net/wmcclain/UDP-2...-modifications
for region-free mods.

If you have a lg oled, get the player that matches all its performance: the oppo 203 region free. It is region free from Bombay Electronice and they are having a 15% off sale today, so its only $50.00 more than a region a model. This player blows everything else out. I promise you won't regret it.

I was looking for an inexpensive option and found one on 220 Electronics, the LG BP550, with a discount.

I'd love to buy an Oppo but it is not within my means.

Has anybody tried or bought the LG BP550? Is it a decent player?

Thanks in advance!

I don't have the LG BP550 but I have two stock region B BP250s imported from Amazon UK and they work perfectly in the US with a cheap plug adapter and even convert PAL to NTSC, total cost including shipping and plug adapter was $66 each.

We've been discussion in another thread what the options are for region B 3D playback. The LG BP450 should fit the bill but it's not clear if it does the same PAL-NTSC conversion that the BP250 does, but more annoying, it doesn't seem to be available to purchase anywhere.

If you don't mind having two players (and the power adapter works in both the US and UK), then importing a stock region B player is worth considering versus a region free one. I did see a couple BP450s and 550s showing up on eBay; I'd be curious if someone bought one how it'd behave in the US.

Thanks so much for your reply.

220 Electronics seems to have a good reputation, so when I ordered I was assuming the player would just work wright out of the box. The product listing sure made it seem that way. LG does sell a US model of the 550.

I really want this thing to work. I ordered some kind of plug adapter somebody linked to on another thread just in case. It should arrive the same day. If I knew all of this was so complicated, I would have just tried to sell the movies I bought on eBay.

If you buy a region-free from 220-electronics or Bombay electronics, you won't need an adapter, because it's been custom-modded. An adapter is only needed if you import a retail region-B-locked player straight from the UK.

Note that if you buy from 220-electronics, you need to pay an additional $40 for the region-free blu-ray playback. It's an option you need to select when you select the model you want.

Default Oppo mod installation

Bought my Oppo region free mod from this site.
http://www.jvbdigital.nl/jvb.asp
I picked Fedex delivery and it was fast. Directions for installation are on their site. One thing you need to do, that is not in the directions, is after you install the mod, you need to unplug the Oppo power cord and plug it back in. This makes the Oppo do a hard reset where it remembers the mod install points. After that go by the directions a remember that #2 is the region you want. It will then play A & B region locked Blu rays.
