My Phillips SD DVD player just died and it's time to get a replacement. I've had all-region DVD players for quite a few years now. I figured I might as well get a regio-free blu-ray player this time. I have a ton of R2 PAL discs I've accumulated.I'm on a tight budget and I'm looking at buying one around $100-$150. Been researching, looking at Phillips and Sony players. I'm researching for the right player, and I've had suggestions for the Toshiba BDX5300 from Bombay Electronics.I do have a blu-ray player, which is my Playstation 3. I plan to eventually get a PS4, so this new player would be my secondary player. I've read about the firmware issues, (don't upgrade as it will eliminate the hack?) I don't care about streaming, as my PS3 and HDTV already do that.
Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks.
