for me is using separate FHD player to play regular BDs lah... UHD is like modern "mini laserdisc" where no region coding is a major concern.

However, different individuals hv different "ideological" setups. Some goes separate gears for different purpose, some looks for minimalistic setups.

Everything I play these days are UHD discs.

Or streaming.

FWIW I had a region B locked Oppo 203 before and playing a number of Region A discs I imported from Amazon and they all played fine. I think most companies relaxed the region coding towards the end.

Same here DH. I fully agreed on your last few posts. After going into UHD, I never turn back to FHD.

Same here.  I have many FHD musicals and concerts which I won't double dip to get UHD.  Has anyone got a set from US?

I'm on the verge of placing an order from US. At this moment, Panasonic Singapore has not announcement on the UB-820 availability.

Bro Doggie, any "more" comments you like to make after using the UB820? especially the HDR Optimizer feature. Good, great?
