Swapped multiple emails with supplier to try various codes and even a software download and nothing worked. But it lets me play usa discs i had, was a cheap price and is very small, so decided to keep it rather than send back.

A much better picture than my older sony. A much better picture than my older sony. However, the amazon video app is linked to the u. If you have a ‘prime membership’ with the u. I could find no way to choose which amazon site i wanted, so was stuck with the u. Videos on the amazon site are only available as a ‘prime member’ joining the u. Site as a ‘prime member (i doubt) will give you free postage for items bought there. So you’ll be paying for the videos only. Of course, before amazon joined up the two services into one. But to pay for something you’re not going to get seems a little foolish.

Region free disc play is goodinternet streaming has issues. I ordered this as my husband moved from the us to the uk and wanted something that would play both us and uk based dvds and bluray discs. The player does this just fine. We can pop in a uk disk (either format) and then pop in a us disk (either format) and it plays all without issues or prompts. Added my husband’s netflix account and had no issues (being his netflex account is us based). When we attempted to add my uk amazon prime account ran into major issues. The device tries to always connect to the us based amazon (. Com) and would not link up with the uk based amazon (. My husband spent over an hour in a chat and then two hours on the phone with amazon support trying to sort it all out. In the end, amazon has no idea what is wrong nor how to fix it.

Ive converted a few dvd and br players myself over the years. This is a us model (states r1/a on the rear). It comes with a 3 pin plug adaptor (us 2 pin plug still on it). After some searching this adaptor seems to conform to uk safety standards and has what appears to be relevant safety marks and numbers on it. Mine came with a 10 amp fuse included which seems quite high considering most uk players have either 3 or 5 amp fuses fitted. Maybe this is to compensate for the voltage change(?) (110 upto 240v). As for the region free, i have to assume these are brought over as locked american players and converted using a code to the hidden installer menu or a software ‘hack’. This is normal practise when it comes to converting players, and it’s how i’ve had to do it in the past. The region free dvd automatically selects relevant region depending on the dvds coding.

Does exactly what it said on the tin and more. All dvds play fine; i’ve even played brd from regions a & b without manual configuration being needed.

Excellent picture quality on a 75′ 4k samsung tv.

I have got this m/c in my lounge hooked up to my samsung 4k tv and its brilliant, so for my mans room i invested in this one, i have a huge collection of blu rays from the usa which i used to put through my ps4 usa version but i had to keep taking my games out, so i got this, and its absolutely wonderful. Watched a dogs purpose blu ray last night,brilliant,then followed by bad moon directors cut region a straight afterwards and it was absolutely flawless. This machine worth every penny and is so easy to use, brilliant service as well, spoke to the shop who supplies these for general info and they were brilliant, all in all a brilliant transaction 10 out of 10. B this review only applies to the samsung bd-j7500 and nothing else.

Arrived two days early, looks smart, decent price and can play every region. Very happy with my purchase.

Great purchase efficiently delivered. Item arrived on time and as advertised.

Does exactly what it said on the tin and more. All dvds play fine; i’ve even played brd from regions a & b without manual configuration being needed.

Good value for money – great service too. . Item works perfectly as described – works with all dvd and blu-ray formats from all regions. Simple to use and has the added feature of being able to play media files (pictures files, mp3 and mp4) as well, either from disk or usb stick. Can be networked via ethernet cable for upgrades, wi-fi would’ve been nice, but i suppose you can’t have everything. Overall, great little unit and great service – would definitely recommend both the unit and this seller again.

    Great little multi region player. I would have given 5 stars but for a couple of niggles. No power on/off light, so you cannot tell if its on or off, also if i swap regions the player does not automaticmaly detect, i have to press remote number to select the region i require. I cannot comment on the internet side as i am still waiting to be connected. I will update in the future.

      1. Beware the accompanying hdmi cable. The hdmi cable which came with it was a basic one and was not powerfully enough to connect with new samsung tv. As soon as i replaced this with high powered gold plated hdmi connection was excellent.

    1. Fast loading player, memory function for easy continuation after stop etc. Many pre-installed apps and good webbrowser to find your own websites. Cables and plugs for most parts of the world. Excellent in combination with my epson laser projector.

    Having purchased this unit i can endorse the favourable reviews but wish to warn potential purchasers of a ‘problem’the unit is sourced in the usa and has been tinkered with to make it play in the uk (one excellent review describes the process) that is fine until you need to access samsung customer support. Samsung support will not assist a uk customer with a usa coded machine unless you are asking them from the usa. In my case the unit played perfectly but would not respond to a remote instruction to change region for a region a or region c blu ray normally a very straightforward process. I tried everything at my level stripping the unit back to factory defaults rebooting the remote nothing worked. Amazon support were as usual helpful but had no fix so sadly i had to return my unit for a refund. To their credit amazon obliged without a quibble although apart from the regional switch glitch the unit performed perfectly. Picture quality look and build are first class the purpose of this review is simply to sound a warning.
