I've never dabbled in region-free player land, so I think I'd rather go with a brand name like Pioneer than risk it with the cheaper no-name brands like the one's that screwed stypee over. Shame being a region-free Blu-ray owner still costs an obscene amount of bucks, especially when a beauty like THIS comes out across the pond.

It seems like there would a be a factory reset option though that would reset it to default settings. Holding down the power button or something.

They have played everything I have stuck in them and the picture & sound quality is really top notch. It may be 30 bucks more expensive than your average baseline region free player but it is money well spent.

Then again people have said PAL works on HD TVs as well.

VLC. it's free and does a great job with DVDs and all media. Also called VideoLan but a google search for VLC media player should get you going.
