    no mate! unless you want to pay about 150 to have it modded.

    you can purchase the mod kit so it's a cheaper option, but you really have to know what your doing soldering etc.

    or but an Oppo they are multi both BD and DVD, cheapest unit about 450

    i'll stick with region B and region free i hear you say

    watch out some are only region free for DVD!
    buy 2 blu ray players: 1 for region A (USA) & 1 for region B(EU). It will cost you less.

    yep m8s, read me post below- it IS possible but it's also a pain in the neck - u have to reflash each time u wanna watch a different zone BD. Furthermore, only tested with Sharp 21 (in a nutshell-go to their e-support site, dload firmware versions for BD zones of interest to u and burn bootable disks with that firmware. Be4 watching a BD of a zone other that B, reflash the bd player with the bootable disk of the zone of the disk u wanna play. May mnot work with other makes/models

    actually the OPPO BDP-80 is only $299, plus a mod kit for about $60, so it's not too bad anymore price wise. I have the BDP-83 which is a little more pricey, but it's a fantastic player.

    OPPO are the only decent ones when it comes to modding, no soldering required, just pull out a connector and slide the module inbetween.

    Oppo are nice players but personally I would just build a HTPC and fill it up with Bluray ripps

    BTW a lot of BD releases don't even have region coding

    The package I bought came with a handful of Blueray discs. One was actually for the Japanese market. It was the first one I put in the player and all I got was Japanese on the screen. I figured the player was screwed up. Nope just the disc.
