Where to get a Blu-Ray 3D Player Region Free

Does anyone know where I can buy a Blu-Ray 3D Player that's Region Free? So it will play 3D movies and DVDs Region 1-8, and Blu-Rays Region A-D. Thank you.

Re: Where to get a Blu-Ray 3D Player Region Free

The most commonly used place is one of the umbrellas of 220-electronics, bombayelectonics, world-import electronics. These items come modified and most seem to have warranties that guarantee they will continue to work.

SOme of the these have Ebay stores where you can negotiate/best offer and the Ebay $15off $75 that show up regularly can help on price if you're patient (several folks did this yesterday). Some have used/refurbs.

If you want "Best of the Best"/Money no Object, then Oppo directly or via Amazon and get the Region Free plug module.

Amazon is also a good source for region free Blu-Ray players. I 've been very happy with the Saachi 3d player I bought from them a few years ago.

I have that "module" for the 95. I thought the Oppo blu hack hardware circuits had been pulled off the market by the USA gvt? I haven't seen it for sale in years. Bought mine on ebay for $30 in 2012.

I know the labels forced Oppo to remove iso compatibility from the firmware which really sucks.

I think teh ISO playback is still missing , but the region free modules still exist.

My OPPO93 was from 2012 as well. I forget which of the plug in modules I bought.

I know several folks have bought 103 and 203 modules within the last few months. Ebay is selling them of course as well as at least one other website. You can also buy them from the above companies but for a large premium over just doing it yourself.

Re: Where to get a Blu-Ray 3D Player Region Free

Videohelp.com has quite a list of hacks to make players region free. These hacks usually only involve pressing a few buttons on your remote. They also have an extensive list of players but 3D is not listed in the advance search terms. If you don't want to spend a small fortune Philips players are usually very easily made region free.

My understanding is the handset hacks only work on dvd, NOT on blu-ray. Am I wrong?

A handful of Blu-ray players have been released that only needed a code to change regions for BD play.

The most famous is probably the Seiki player.

I have a Seiki SR212S I got @ K-Mart a few years ago for $30, and I love it. There isn't a DVD or BluRay I've thrown at it that it won't play.
