  • Region-Free LG UP870 and UP970 Ultra-HD Blu-ray Players

    lg up870 and up970 region free blu-ray playersLG is up against some fierce competition when it comes to Ultra-HD Blu-ray players, but there are two models that stand out for us - the UP870 and the UP970. These two models are somewhat basic, but in the world of 4k Blu-ray they're affordable, reliable, easy to use and they're less expensive than many of the competitor's models. With a simple but clean design, they fit in well with any home theater to power your 4K TV with Ultra-HD disc playback. Furthermore, the models we sell are region-free which gives them additional capability over the models sold by LG or in major department stores. They've been professionally modified for region free playback (plays blu-ray discs from all regions and DVDs from all regions), feature worldwide voltage (works with 110 - 240 volts without a voltage transformer), and are equipped with internal Pal/NTSC conversion (these players work with any TV from any country without expensive video converters). They're truly global players that can play any disc, on any TV, from anywhere in the world. This makes them an excellent choice for travelers or anyone who likes to purchase foreign film titles. Let's take a quick look at some of the features of these players.
     
    4K and 3D Disc Playback
    Enjoy your favorite movies and TV series on Ultra-HD in the finest resolution available. Rich colors, deep contrast and HDR support make for an amazingly realistic home theater experience. If you have a 3D TV, you'll be glad to know that the UP870 and UP970 both support 3D disc playback.
     
    1080p and 4k Upscaling
    If you have older DVDs that aren't Full HD, these players will upscale them to near HD quality. For non-4K Blu-ray discs, they will upscale to near 4K quality. This means that whatever you're playing will be shown in the highest resolution possible.
     
    Audio Support
    Both models support a wide range of audio formats for playback, as well as your home theater setup. This includes LPCM, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos, DTS, DTS-HD Master Audio, FLAC, AAC, WMA, MPEG 1/2 L2, MP3, and more.
     
    Video Support
    The UP870 and UP970 play practically any video format you can imagine. Support for all major/popular formats includes MPEG-1, MPEG2 PS/TS, MPEG4 AVC (H.264), SMPTE VC1 (VC-9), H.265, MKV, Xvid, AVC Rec, AVCGD, M4V, WMV, 3GP, MP4, MOV, FLV, VOB, TS, DAT, and more.
     
    Web and Streaming Content
    You have 2 options here, depending on your needs. The UP870 doesn't feature Wi-Fi or streaming media. If you already have a Smart TV, then this really isn't an issue because you already have access to streaming content. The UP970 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and streaming media access (including 4k streaming), but is limited to Netflix and Youtube. Both players do feature a rear Ethernet port for a more stable connection.
     
    Inputs/Outputs
    Both models are equipped with a frontal USB port that allows you to plug in a storage device or smartphone/tablet for playing media. The UP870 has a single HDMI output, while the UP970 has dual HDMI outputs. Both players also have an optical audio output.
     
    If you're ready to get into 4K Blu-ray, both of these players are a fair choice. The Region-Free version of the UP870 and the Region-Free UP970 are not available in stores. If you're searching for global functionality and unlimited playback, plus the ability to use your player with any TV at any voltage, these LG machines will do it. Just don't forget to buy from a trusted retailer who specializes in Region-Free players.

  • Global Electronics for International Use: What You Need to Know

    global electronics for international useAll electronics are not created equal. In fact, around the world - even if you purchase the same brand and model - there are various differences in both construction and performance. Not always visible to the naked eye, these differences can make or break your ability to utilize your electronics in other parts of the world.
     

    Most Electronics are NOT Universal

    While it might not be common knowledge to the average person, the truth is that most electronics are not designed for global use. From the different standards in voltage to the multiple audio & video formats used in various countries, there are many obstacles to overcome if you plan to purchase or use your electronics in other countries. With the exception of laptops - which usually feature a power adapter that works with any voltage - nearly all electronics are only useful in the country or region where they were purchased. While it's possible to use your devices in other regions of the world, it will usually require expensive converters, adapters, and a lot of messy cables.
     

    The Voltage Problem

    Voltage is just one of the many issues with electronics. The voltage problem also applies to personal devices and kitchen appliances; anything that uses electricity. While North America uses 120 volts, Europe uses 220 volts. This difference in voltage means that your US electronics will receive an overdose of electricity if used in Europe (which is very dangerous), while European-bought electronics won't have enough electricity to function properly. Either situation can result in damaged devices, fire, or even electrical shock.
     

    Color Systems and Formatting Issues

    Color systems are another issue, and something that we would hardly ever think to consider. TVs and blu-ray players use specific formatting to encode and decode the information that displays the image. The 3 main color systems around the world are PAL, NTSC, and Secam. Each color system is specific and it's not possible to use a PAL TV with a NTSC Blu-ray Player. PAL, NTSC, and Secam models are respectively manufactured and sold to regions that utilize those formats and are not cross-compatible without expensive converters.
     

    Disc Playback and Region Coding Problems

    This issue is similar to the rest but it only applies to DVD and Blu-ray Players. There are 3 different "regions" of Blu-ray and 7+ regions for DVD discs. In each region, the players are coded to read discs that originate from that region only. For example, Region 1 DVDs are only compatible with region 1 DVD Players. The reason for this is mainly to prevent copyright issues, minimize pirating, and to ensure timely release dates and fair prices in various parts of the world. Another aspect is political and religious environments in which much censorship demands that certain versions of media are not available, especially if they are deemed to violent or provocative.
     

    How to Solve it all?

    There is a simple solution to all of the challenges faced by traveling, purchasing, and using electronics from around the world. After all, it should be easy enough to simply plug & play without the headaches, right? Actually, it's much easier than you think.
     
    Multisystem electronics, global electronics and region-free players unlock the universal potential of your devices to guarantee compatibility regardless of where you are in the world. Specially, professionally modified and not available in major retailers, these units feature hardware/software advancements that give them the global flexibility and functionality that the manufacturers should have given you since the start.
     
    Multisystem TVs feature updated internal components and specialized software that allows them to work with any color system. They can also work with any voltage - all you need to do is flip a switch on the TV to change from 120 to 220 volts. This lets you use your TV with a Blu-ray Player from anywhere in the world, and to utilize the local cable TV without a mess of extra wiring and pricey video conversion gadgets. Region-Free DVD and Region-Free Blu-ray Players allow you to play discs from anywhere, on any TV (even non-multisystem TVs), with any electrical voltage from 110 to 240 volts. Universal personal devices such as curling irons and razors are compatible with any voltage, relieving you from any worries about a fire or damaging your device.
     
    The best part about these global, multisystem, and region-free electronics is that you can choose from your favorite brands and the latest models. It's important to find an experienced retailer who specializes in these modified units because they are not available in department stores or major retailers. They are professionally modified to give you the global flexibility that you deserve and most of them feature the same manufacturer's warranty.
     
    With over 35 years of experience in global electronics and international relocation, we're an authority on traveling with electronics. We carry a wide selection of electronics and appliances intended for global use, as well as hard-to-find 220 volt electronics from the top brand names.

  • Region Free Blu-ray Players: More Than Just Movies

    region free blu-ray playersWe've came a long way since the glory days of VHS tapes. Even DVD Players seem rather ancient right now with their capabilities limited only to disc playback. The invention and advancement of Blu-ray has brought with it much more than just improved resolution and sound clarity; it's opened up a whole new world of home media.
     
    Combined with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and other smartphone technology such as applications, the Blu-ray Player has transformed home theater into a vast world of endless media possibilities. We can share photos and video from our phones onto our TV screens without the need for cables. We can access and our favorite music playlists from our laptop in another room and play that music on our surround sound system without ever touching the laptop - and then we can adjust the volume using our smartphone while sitting on the back porch. We can check the weather, communicate with our friends and even surf the web directly from our Blu-ray players. We have access to thousands of hours of movies and TV shows that require nothing more than our internet connection and the use of our remote control. We can share our tablet or smartphone screen on our TV and vice versa. It's actually rather amazing if you think about it.
     
    A Region Free Blu-ray Player takes all these conveniences and pushes it a step further by allowing you to use it anywhere, to play any disc, on any TV. That's right. While it might not mean much to you at home, there are some serious benefits to this.
     
    When you purchase a Blu-ray Player from Wal-Mart or Best Buy, you're getting a player designed to work with the local voltage, capable of playing blu-ray discs that are sold only in your country. With a region-free player, you're getting a unit that works with any voltage (from 110 to 240 volts) and is capable of playing any disc, from anywhere in the world. Region-Free players also work with any TV, thanks to their internal video conversion. You can take the player to Canada, China, Russia, or Brazil or anywhere else - it will always work. No voltage converters needed and no worries about foreign disc playback. While this is perfect for the world traveler, it's also perfect for anyone who likes to purchase, collect and watch foreign film titles.
     
    It's important to note that Region Free Blu-ray Players are specially modified by professionals. The modified players are the same brands and models sold in big box stores, but the ones in those stores have not been modified. If you see a player that's region-free, don't expect to go purchase that player in your local electronics store. They won't have the region free version and you'll end up disappointed with your purchase. It's important to purchase from a reputable retailer who specializes in the sales of Region-Free Blu-ray Players and global electronics.
     
    With the advancements that Blu-ray technology has delivered to our home theaters, it only makes sense to own a player that has no restrictions for use or playback. Region Free Blu-ray Players offer exactly that, you get the best of both worlds. Stream media, watch your favorite movies, surf the web, listen to your music, share your photos, access your image & video library, and use your smartphone as a remote control to do it all - from anywhere in the world, on any TV.

  • Region-Free Blu-ray Players For Travelers and Expats

    region free blu-ray players for travelers and expatsOne of the biggest inconveniences from people who move, retire or live for extended periods overseas is that they can't watch their movies on a Blu-ray or DVD Player. The reason for this is simple - discs and disc players are designed, manufactured and sold to only play movies from their respective region.
     
    For example, a Blu-ray player from Europe will not play discs sold in australia, nor would it play discs from the USA. Likewise, a North American Blu-ray player won't play discs from Europe, Japan, or South America. The reasons for this are many, but the reasons aren't really important. What's important is to understand that a simple, effective, reliable and affordable alternative is right at your fingertips. The Region-Free Blu-ray Player.
     

    What is a Region-Free Blu-ray Player?

    Region-Free Players (both Blu-ray and DVD) are specially modified players that will play discs from any region in the world. Typically a 3rd party business will buy the most popular brands & models of which are available in stores and then modify the hardware professionally. Once the modifications are complete, the players are sold as region-free models. Consumers can purchase these models and play discs from any region without worry.
     
    Another great aspect of region-free players is their compatibility with the electrical voltage and color systems of foreign countries. Let's take a look below at this works.
     

    Voltage

    In North America, all players are designed for 120 volts use because that's the standard electrical voltage. In other regions of the world, it's usually 220 to 240 volts. To make things simple, region-free players feature worldwide voltage, allowing you to flip a switch on the back to choose your operating voltage depending on your location. This lets you use a region-free player anywhere in the world without the need for a bulky voltage transformer or converter.
     

    Color Systems

    As far as color systems are concerned, the resolution and color format varies from continent to continent. PAL, NTSC, and Secam are the 3 major color systems, and if you try to use a PAL Blu-ray player with a NTSC TV, they'll be incompatible. The hardware inside the TV won't be able to process the formatting of the disc, or, process the information the Blu-ray player sends the TV. To resolve this incompatibility issue, you'd normally have to purchase an audio/video converter. Luckily, 95% of region-free players have been modified with internal PAL/NTSC/Secam conversion. There's no need to buy converters and deal with messy wires and additional costs. It's plug and play!
     

    Region-Free Blu-ray Players Are A Perfect Solution

    As you can probably see now, the benefits of owning a region-free player are several. It can play discs from anywhere in the world and it will work at any voltage. It can also work with any TV, regardless of the color system. You can literally take these players anywhere in the world, play any disc, and use it with any TV. That's a flexibility that you can't afford to miss out on.
     
    Surely, the age of the internet gives us things like streaming media and Netflix for watching movies, but there's not always a solid internet connection available for these services. A lot of us prefer to own the actual discs, or, we may already have a large collection of discs that we'd like to be able to use - even if we relocate to a foreign country. A Region-Free Blu-ray Player is the ultimate, affordable, and highly reliable solution.

  • Where to find Movies for Region-Free Blu-ray Players

    region free blu-ray and dvd discsSo you've purchased your Region-free Blu-ray Player, now what? You have quite a few viewing options at your disposal, depending on the reason you've purchased the player. Generally speaking, most people fall into one of the following categories.
     
    1. Those looking to play discs from a specific single region other than their own.
    2. Movie lovers who have seen titles available in other regions and want to be able to purchase and watch those titles in their own home.
    3. Those who already own discs from another region and wanted to be able to watch them.
     
    Whatever your reason may be, it's highly probable that you've already found a source for purchasing movies from other regions. However, there are a few very good retailers out there who you may have not heard of. While there are plenty of overseas websites where you can buy Blu-ray and DVD discs coded for a specific region, most of them don't offer discs from all regions. In other words, there are only a handful of decent websites catering to people who want to browse discs from all regions of the world.
     
    You can thank us later - Here is one of the best, most unique sites who offer hard-to-find Blu-ray and DVD discs from other regions. That is, assuming you're into horror, Kung-Fu, cult favorites and odd documentaries.

  • Region Free LG BP220 Blu-ray Review

    lg bp220
    When it comes to Blu-ray players there's a seemingly unlimited amount of models to choose from, many with their own unique and impressive features that offer cutting-edge technology for your home theater. But how do you decide what Blu-ray player is best for your needs? Research. Read reviews, compare prices and options, then decide which features you can or cannot live without. Depending on the brand, the technology and the features, the difference in pricing can be drastic from model to model.
     
    Today, we're going to review a very economical and relatively inexpensive Blu-ray player that's not only affordable, but highly functional. It's the Region Free LG BP220 - and it offers a big bang for your buck.
     
    LG has a reputation for offering next-level technology that's reliable and highly usable. Considering this, the LG BP220 Blu-ray player has hit its mark perfectly by providing just the right combination of attractive options, flexibility and ease of use. As a player that falls into the "less than $150" category, we were very surprised with the overall quality as well as the capabilities it offers.
     
    We'll begin with the fact that the BP220 offers the LG Smart TV experience. Using a simple and clean user interface you can connect to a variety of apps, movies and streaming media including YouTube, Netflix, Hulu PLUS, Pandora and more. Some services are free while others are paid, but regardless, you'll have endless audio and visual entertainment right at your fingertips. Setup is easy and although the model doesn't have Wi-Fi, a wired connection works flawlessly and gives you access to all your favorite services including the LG app store. It also has DMP, or DLNA capability, meaning you can connect and share media with other devices in your home.
     
    In the Audio/Video area, we felt that the BP220 did quite well, often exceeding our expectations of quality. The player uses full HD 1080P playback, plus 1080P up-scaling which dramatically increases the picture quality of non-HD DVD discs. Blu-ray playback and quality was wonderful and it's truly hard (if not impossible) to differentiate from that of a much more expensive device. We used it in combination with a 55-inch LG smart TV and it performed very well, serving up a crisp image with deep colors and great detail.
     
    Of all the discs we threw at it, it didn't fail to play one. It literally plays everything including DVD-R, DTS-CD and CD-R's. It also fully supports the most popular video formats such as MPEG2, MPEG4, MKV, AVCHD, M4V, 3GP, FLV, VOB and more. HDMI 1.4 and a video enhancement feature lends additional options, making the movie experience even more enjoyable.
     
    As far as audio, we found no reason to say that the LG BP200 falls short. It comes equipped to support Dolby Digital(Plus), Dobly True HD and DTS 2.0 digital output. It features dynamic range control for configuring surround sound to your exact preferences while providing a theater-like experience in the convenience of your own home. Although this player might not feature the highly advanced audio options desired by the expert home audio buff, it is more than capable of high-performance sound delivery.
     
    The BP220 also has the following input/output features:
     

    • - Composite video out
    • - HDMI out
    • - Audio L/R out
    • - Digital Audio Out
    • - USB 2.0
    • - LAN

     
    Seeing as the model we tested was a region free player, it has advanced capability and convenience that come included for the price, making it a truly unbeatable deal.
     
    The region free LG BP220 has worldwide voltage capability that allows it to work with a 110 volt or 220 volt power supply. This means you can use it anywhere in the world without the need for a voltage converter, making it ideal for those who travel abroad or have more than one home. Additionally, the region free playback feature lets you watch Blu-ray discs and DVD's from anywhere in the world without having to worry about region codes. It's perfect for people who buy movies when traveling or those interested in watching foreign films without complication. If that's not enough, it uses built-in PAL/NTSC conversion to ensure compatibility with any TV regardless of the color format. This region free player can be used to play any disc, on any TV, from anywhere in the world - we truly cannot express the coolness of these features; they genuinely make it a universal Blu-ray player.
     
    overall, we've found nothing we didn't like about the BP220. It's stylish, smooth, highly functional and delivers a professional quality viewing experience for an amazing value. The added bonus of region free options really do make it an unbeatable deal and there's no arguing over that. LG has done very well with the BP220 Blu-ray player and in our expert opinion, the spot it has earned in homes around the globe is very well deserved.
