It makes a little noise when loading a disc, So Be It! It takes a little time to load, Oh My! It's tempermental and doesn't want to play discs all the time, Really?!

Let's address the complaints first and then I'll tell you why you need to get this player as soon as possible. First ALL players make noise loading discs and Blu-Ray discs take a while because you are loading up software. If yours doesn't do either of these thing well, Burah! You have a unique player. As for not playing discs all the time, Huh. The only problem I had with playback of my entire library were a couple of imports and I think that was in the mastering.

So now that that's been settled let's get on to all the reasons you should buy this player-----This is a region free Blu-Ray player, PERIOD. I shouldn't have to say anymore than that. Unless you've just had your decapated, cryogenically frozen head thawed out after 20 years, you know all about the region debate. Distibuters have markets and in order to keep those rights DVDs got regionalized. Funny thing though, European players have had the capablility to play NTSC all along and multi-region, while the US has been stuck with our region only. Hmm. You even have a major company like Disney buying up the rights to the domestic distribution of Asian properties and puting a great company like Tai Sung out of business by theatening to sue them into the ground and then not releasing these movies in favor of crummy remakes instead. But I digress.

Foreign special editions have been around forever and I've been region free since players first became available (I even have a VCR that will play PAL tapes) because I just wouldn't settle for what the US companies had to offer.

*** The Sherwood 5004 is a reliable Blu-Ray player. It performs excellently and is very similar to the Momitsu 899. I have set up my player to take advantage of all BD-Live 2.0 features. I am pleased to report that the player performs these functions very well indeed. It loads and plays BD-Live content much faster than does my older Panasonic BDP-35.

Using the HD Bitstream setting sent through HDMI cables to my Pioneer VSX-91TXH Receiver, I have found Dolby True HD and DTS Master Sound to sound splendid whether the movie/music is encoded at 7.1, 2.0 or 1.0 channels. Immediately prior to the install of the player, I re-calibrated the room and speakers using Pioneer's built in sound analyzer.

The upconversion of pictures appears to be of a higher quality than my older Panasonic, however, I am not certain I can state the same thing about the Oppo DV-981 and will need to look a while longer. At any rate, the Sherwood certainly loads much faster than the Panasonic. This was examined after I reset the various levels on video display on my Samsung 46" monitor using two separate video programs.

That said, I heartily recommend the Sherwood, especially given that I have repeatedly switched it from Region A to Region B and back again. The machine handles each very well.

*** Since I wrote this review, an update to the firmware came out. Save yourself the trouble and DO NOT UPLOAD THE NEW FIRMWARE!! It removes the ability of the player to play Region B/C Blu-Rays - the reason I purchased the machine - and renders it a Region A player only. Continue to use it with the original firmware which works just fine.

I bought this player for what I understand are its multi-zone/region capabilities. While I haven't tested that yet, the unit is quick to start and load a disc. In addition, the quality of the picture seems to be as good as my Oppo 83 and Pioneer BDP-51FD. Upconversion of DVDs also seems to be quite good. All for about $170 delivered from Amazon. Good deal. What would make it a five star? More connectivity options. Great deal for the money.

3-3-2010: Update to original review. I've now purchased two of these units through Amazon. The original from [...] and the second unit from Ritz Camera. I am very pleased with the multi-zone capabilities. The unit plays anything I've gotten my hands on as well as several multi-zone/region discs. Most recently the unit played a European bluray of the Hurt Locker without a hitch and I should note that I didn't have to enter the secret remote codes that one can locate on the internet.

Kudos to Amazon and Ritz Camera for refunding me the cost of the second unit and shipping me a new player when the unit that was shipped had problems with going to a green screen after several minutes of use. It took about three weeks for the refund to process and I am happy with the replacement. If you are wondering when the problem occurred, it was immediately out of the box and did not develop over time. It was a factory defective product so please be sure that you hook up the unit immediately and test that it plays before you start throwing out the packaging material. I called Ritz Camera immeidately for the replacement and Amazon processed the refund. Ritz Camera covered the cost of shipping the defective unit back to it. Good customer service.
