Summary: The unit has the ability to play any of the nine worldwide region DVDs or any of the three worldwide Blue-rays. No computer hookups, just put the disc in and sit back! I enjoy travel and viewing videos that are not all blockbusters, but good films or documentaries. This machine does it all.
Summary: I bought this about 6 months ago and have been loving it, it shows Blue-ray as well as DVDs as expected. I purchased some Region 2 DVD's of movies not available in the US and it performed beautifully. My only complaint is that the remote is too small.
Summary: We bought this player due to its good reviews both for the player and the customer service. We weren't disappointed. We had a software problem, emailed the seller and within hours (on a Sunday) had the fix. We were also told that we could return the player if we preferred. It works wonderfully. We've enjoyed being able to watch both Region 1 & 2 DVD's along with our Blu-Ray's.
Summary: The reason I am unable to rate it was because I did not receive the Toshiba BDx 1250rx. I ordered the 1250 via AudioVideoCenter, and they sent me a Toshiba BDx1300vu which was selling for $110.00 vice the $149.00 I was charged. I notified AVD that I wanted a $39.00 refund to my VISA account. They refused. Do not do business with this company. What they basically did was a bait-and-switch. I was able to get a $39.00 refund from Amazon.com. Thank you Amazon.
Summary: Well to be honest I got a different model - 1300rf - not 1250rf. BUT... Everything is just perfect. It reads Region 1 and 2 DVDs as well as A and B BluRays. It is not blazing fast but can handle operating on all discs without causing irritation. The remote could be more clear and slightly larger - some find it confusing. The picture quality is very good. Overall satisfied.
Summary: BEWARE, I purchased the Toshiba BDX1250KU Region Free Blu-ray player at the end of September 2012. At first it worked fine. I played 3 movies on it right away. Then over the next 90 days I played a couple more movies. (In all, the player has only about 10 to 12 hours on it). After 3 months I went t to play another movie on it. and it wouldn't even turn on. It wasn't a problem with the remote, it still wouldn't turn on even using the unit's on/off switch.
Summary: I've had this player for a couple of months and have been able to play all regions of DVDs (PAL and NTSC)and both Region A and Region B blurays without difficulty. No pausing or freezing problems whatsoever. The problem some have encountered with the multiple angles and multiple audio icons staying on screen can be fixed easily from the Setup Menu. I found this to be an excellent entry-level bluray player, especially since it has multi-region capabilities.
Summary: Can read all my DVD and Bluray disks (french, italian, american), easy connection to my NTSC TV (no PAL or SECAM problems). Only drawback: I learned afterward there is a wifi model, I would have opted for that one if I had known...
