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.
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...
Summary: I cannot speak about the Toshiba BDX 1300 simply because I order a FREE REGION FREE ZONE BD / DVD and that was not what I received. Probably the unit is good but the information is MISLEADING.
Summary: Taking the advice from other reviewers, I checked the player itself inside of the VERY damaged box. The box had the correct model number (BDX1300) but the booklet and the player had BDX1300KU and a region 1 symbol on it. All numbers or ABC should be listed and it's definitely not region free.
Summary: I purchased this unit, advertised as REGION FREE. Sold by: MoneySaving Deals, fulfilled by Amazon June 2013. What I got was NOT region free. I contacted Amazon and returned it for a refund. Their rep promised to have the incorrect advertising corrected.
Summary: Despite ordering this twice, it appears that this product is NOT region free--at least in the US. Can't speak for anything else about it,since I returned it both times. I ended up sticking with my old non-blu ray DVD player from Japan.
Summary: I bought this as we moved back to the US after a few years in the UK and wanted to play DVD's we bought there etc. Have changed the region to UK and it will not play any UK DVD's - keeps telling me that it is the "wrong" region.
Summary: I purchased this item a month ago and it was great! So I thought I'd buy one for a friend. I bought the same model from Amazon. This one is NOT region free!! It's a piece of crap. I wouldn't be so upset but Toshiba customer service is non existent. Pathetic.
