Finally found one German E-tailer that ships PANASONIC UB9000* @ competitive price that ships to SG, with German TAX removal...
http://hidden-audio.de/index.php/panasonic-dp-ub9004-uhd-blu-ray-player-4k-hdr.html
Total under SGD$1.4k shipped.
*Region locked @ FHDBD-B/DVD-2

Wow good price! If only it's region A!

if U want multi region on FHDBD,go to the Brit‘s etailer which i linked to their Pioneer LX500 offering. However,i couldn't guarantee on their hacking stability as it's known that any updates will factory reset the machine to it's original specified zone。

best to read other forum owners‘ response about the updatesla... today‘s new generation chipsets seems to be the culprit。

Typically most of the consumer electronics do not carry international warranty unless the selling country agent provides such warranty with limitation.
For example, Philips Singapore selling TVs with International warranty that thru Mustafa, is viable for warranty claim in India.

In another thread, other bros shared that Pioneer players bought from overseas can be serviced in SG Pioneer, but with some nominal charges. So... it's best if u can check with Panasonic SG on such serviceability.

Grabbed a player in Melbourne. Got tax refund somemore. Can't wait to set it up with the JVC NX7 for 4K/HDR playback.
