Finally popped in a couple of discs yesterday. They were U.S. discs though. I like how responsive the player is. Disc content loads quickly, the player responds well to when you push buttons on the remote.

I don't have an imported disc to try yet though. Hopefully they will be here from Zavvi within a week.

Glad I found this thread. Hope the player lasts a couple/few years!

^ I'm also pretty happy with it. Sure the sharpness a just a touch hot and it's a bit on the noisy side audibly, but I'm very sensitive to those sorts of things. It's hard to complain at it's current price point. For perfect PQ I use my HTPC for region free playback. With the saved money (buying the Seiki) I can now upgrade my HTPC and not feel guilty about wasting money.

The Seiki is for the bedroom and I'll most likely get a second player for the living room later on.

I seems to have found the SR4KP1 model on sale at Kmart. There was talk of the region free thing getting patched earlier on in the thread? Is that a concern or should I pick this up?

They can only patch your player if you let them. You don't have to apply a new firmware if they do patch things down the road. If Seiki did, it would severely hurt their sales. I don't see that happening any time soon.

I think so...

But only you can judge that based on what it does (and doesn't) offer per dollar spent. If you're asking about firmware changes, nothing has changed.
