    As X-Mas is coming, I'm sorting out gifts for the family. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get my father a blu-ray player, but I don't have the fogiest which one to get. The main thing I want is one that can play R1 DVDs. Any suggestions?

    At some price. The Oppo 93 which replaced the 83 is around 500.
    A more realistic choice may be one of the Sony or Panasonic models, that is if they are region free.

    I'm very happy with my Panasonic DMP-BDT110, but that's partly because when I ebayed the free films it only cost me 40. Nevertheless I still still think it's a decent player.

    Take a stroll over to the dreaded AV Forums and see what you can find.

    Most if not all Sony models can be made region free for DVDs. I paid 100 for a BDP-S370 last Xmas & i couldn't be happier with it.

    Any idea how to region free them? I have a 570 and haven't found out how to do it, which means I have a bunch of PAL DVDs waiting to be chucked out.

    For the OP, get this and be better than ecosse.

    PS3 just died. Any recommendations for a decent blu ray player?

    I can't believe the PS3 still costs around 200 at it's cheapest model!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Ps3 12gb has been down as low as 120 in some places you could get one for around 140 I reckon and then just stick your hard drive in it.

    Dont kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, hed eat you and everyone you care about!

    Game are selling 40GB fat models for 99 preowned.

    Might get one of those. The question is will GAME be around in a year for me to claim on the guarantee? :)

    ... which is 190 on the website.

    You may as well buy a new 12GB PlayStation 3 for nearly 60 cheaper!

    Sorry, it's much cheaper in Switzerland, it is much better, quieter and faster as a BD player than the cheap and nasty latest PS3

    100 Samsung BD-E6100

    And the others...

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Ah, fair enough ...

    ... : )

    I just spotted new Sony Blu-ray players here. Only downside is that they won't be available until early March though.
