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!!
Summary: This item is advertised as a Toshiba BDX1300 Region Free DVD & Blu-Ray Player. I tried to buy this item twice. The first one was neither DVD nor Blu-Ray Region Free. The second one had a label added that indicated it was DVD Region Free, but only Region A Blu-Ray. Usually a label like this means it was modified after it left the factory.
Summary: First of all, fast shipping does not count for stars. We are not rating fast shipping here. We are rating the product. Secondly..... I wanted this all region DVD player to work. In the same order from Amazon I purchased this Toshiba Bdx1300rf player and a new Pioneer DV 420K - All Region Free Multi System / Multi Region 1080p DVD Player (with HDMI Upconverting & USB). Both DVD players were received the same day.
A good all-round performer - poor BD error tolerance
22 October 2012
Summary: Sorry folks, originally I gave this player 5 stars, however having played more BD discs, I've noticed that if a blu-ray disc has a very minor disc error (even if disc is clean and dust free), this player tends to freeze up and you have to unplug and start the movie again as the buttons won't work when this happens. I know its a minor disc error as it happens on the exact same frame every time. This has happened on two discs on Disney's" Brave" and on new "Total Recall".
Summary: Points positifs: petit prix & faible encombrement. Défauts: bruyant, ne lit pas le format MP4 de vidéos Apple (je pensais que la mention MPEG4 signifiait cette capacité), ergonomie et télécommande "cheap". Globalement déçu mais pas le courage de le renvoyer !
Summary: Pues eso, que me he equivocado. He comprado este reproductor por las espeficicaciones que tiene y las buenas reseñas que se pueden leer del él por ahí. Lo he probado con PSYCHO en blu-ray y la reproduce de miedo, imagen y sonido 5.1 perfectos. El problema está cuendo intento reproducir un DVD o BLU-RAY no Europeos, osea, que no sean Zona 2, en el caso de los DVD, o B/2 en los Blu-Ray.
