One thing you should know...

Pierre Burthey, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: I'm writing this review to help customers, like me, who could't watch foreign DVDs from Region 2, 3, 4 etc...since last week. The S-5100 asked for an update of firmware, I accepted, and it returned as normal Region 1 player.

Very good, not perfect for the price.

  • Summary: I ordered this along with SAMSUNG's BDF-5700 (also a "hacked" all zone, multi region player). The Sony is a larger sized unit and also sports a second USB port in the rear (both units have front ports). Easy set up, though you'll also need to register the machine if you use Amazon, Pandora, etc.

Review of Sony BDP-S5100

  • Summary: This Multi-region Blu-ray/DVD player plays any Blu-ray or DVD movie onto an American TV. So far I haven't encountered any movies it won't play.

So far everything looks great!

A. Vickers, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: I've recently been getting into some great Blu-Ray releases from Arrow Video over in the UK, and soon realized I'd either need a Region free player or import a Region 2 player for some movies I'd like to get in the future and already have.

Code/region free disk player.

Graham Chalmers "gc2000", Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I wanted a multi region player as I have some PAL region 2 DVD's and also supposedly region free BBC bluray disks of the 2012 Olympics, which disks my old Panasonic bluray player could not handle. So far the BBC blurays and one region 2 DVD have played successfully on this machine.

Works very easily with DVD's from different regions

La Jolla Library User, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: For some reason, I didn't notice before purchase that the machine was altered by Bombay Electronics and isn't sold as a multi-region player by Sony. I don't know what that does to the warranty, but it does work as advertised. The DVD switching is very simple. It just plays any disc from any region.

Works fine. User interface could be better

Thomas V Cox, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: The unit appears to run rock solid, unlike the LG Blu-ray player it is replacing, which would drop out about every 10 minutes. The Sony unit comes with a staggering array of links to inline entertainment resources.

A Good Device

George Thomas "Minstrel in the Gallery", Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Overall a very good player. everything handles well. haven't tested the 3D features yet. but otherwise plays region A discs without any problems. I live in a Region B location but haven't tried out any Region B discs yet. the DVD discs seem to have better quality than on DVD players.

Good once it gets going

Emily A. Roesly, Amazon
5 November 2013
  • Summary: This Blu Ray seems to work just fine - now that I finally got it to work! It only connects with one HDMI cord, so it's rather difficult to mess that up. However, I kept getting a message on my TV "unable to find signal".

Does exactly what I wanted

Renea M. Perry, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: This player does indeed play several different regions of disc, both DVD and BluRay. It is marketed as all voltage, however the cord that comes hardwired into the player is a US only plug. Otherwise, no complaints.
