Any other confirmations on the S-5200?


I've heard samsungs have DNR built into all of their players.

I think the 3D TV is the more important component in 3D playback. I usually buy whatever is the top of the line Sony player and they are fine.

I want an Oppo, but at this point, I'm waiting for the 4K player if I'm going to drop that kind of cash.

I bought a Sony BDP-S5500 for $75 at BB (it got solid reviews on cnet but the only knock on it is the loading times in comparison the the similarly feature wise Samsung BD-J5700) to replace my Denon DBP-2012 UDCI. It will be a holdover until OPPO releases their 4K/3D blu-ray player.

Default Region B players for the U.S.A.

Does anyone in the states have recommendations for a dedicated region B player or region free player for use in region A? I'm tired of missing out on titles or worrying about the region coding but I'm worried about the reliability of some of the advertised players. I'd appreciate any input from someone in region A with experience with such players.

I've had the Sony BDP-S6500 3D, hardware-modified, multi-region player for about a year now. Works like a charm. Got it from 220 Electronics: http://www.220-electronics.com/regio...ay-player.html

Thanks for the reply! I was afraid nobody looked at this forum anymore.

I notice that is a 4k player, is a 4k tv required even for non-4k media?

No, it's a regular ol' 1080p player. The specs say it will upscale the picture from 2k to 4k, for whatever that's worth. I have a Sony 1080p tv, so I doubt I'm benefitting from this upscaling feature. I'm by no means a technical expert, but I'm guessing a 4K tv would see the benefits of this feature.

Hi Damon, I recently bought the modified Sony BDP-S5500 through Amazon. I absolutely love it! You can switch regions very easily, and it works like a charm, couldn't be happier with it.

I see that's the same as kurosawa's minus the 4k. So two plugs for the Sony so far, thanks for replying. I thought 220 was cheaper than Amazon but you have to pay extra to make it region-free so it ends up being the same.

Add $40 for the region free Blu Ray ability on that.

A couple of codes that might work.

74195 - 5%
BLU10OFF - 10% got this one to work on a region free Sony BDP-S6500, wouldn't work on the LG you listed.

Could you explain what this means? Sorry if I'm slow, but if I need to use codes on these players, that would color my decision.

These would be discounts codes you would apply in the shopping cart at 220-electronics

Read and read and read on here and still not certain on what to buy. My sony bro s580 keeps cutting video in and out. Done everything I've read to fix problem and still no luck. Looking for a player that will play 3D.

Suggestions? Under $100!

Thanks

Just a funny note. I finally pulled the trigger and got the sony 5500 which looked remarkably like those little $30 DVD players. Set it up and put a movie in and sat on the couch. Some previews started to play so without looking, I point the remote behind me and hit the page forward button. A few seconds later I'm listening to two soundtracks. Turns out the remote works on the blu-ray player I already had as well. So it looks like I going to have to find a way to separate them.

I don't have a region B disc yet to check out but there are some in the mail.

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.
