0 Stars-Do not order if you want to play DVD's from regions other than 1. Amazon must change its advert!!!

Summary: The Amazon advertisement is quite clear- buy the BDX1300 (not the BDX1300KU) and it will play from all regions. Incorrect. I received a new BDX1300 today and it will only play region 1. The player is labeled BDX1300 but the instruction manual is for the BDX1300KU. Ironically, the purchase was made because I bought another BDX1300 in September and it does play all regions. What is going on?
Summary: I just bought this Toshiba Blue Ray disc/DVD player BDX1300KU apparently "Region Free DVD" . It is suppose to play back DVDs from Regions 1-8. On the Box of the product it has that it is "Region 1" but,it also has 2 stickers that says: REGION FREE DVD Plays regions 1-8 Zone A blu ray and the other sticker says: XOOOJHOTK1 Toshiba BDX1300 Region Free DVD and Blu Ray player new. It does NOT play back DVDs with regions other than Region 1.
Summary: READ THE PRODUCT REVIEW CAREFULLY! IT IS NOT REGION FREE FOR BLU-RAY......ONLY PLAYS REGION A!! Otherwise, I'm sure it is a fine product. Interestingly....the box stated it only played Region A blu-ray, but in another spot on the box, it stated that it was a "region free Blu-ray and disc player". Go figure!!
