5.0 out of 5 stars Multi region Bluray player
This is a serious bit of kit. To set the blu-ray region. Switch the player on then switch it off. When you see the words "See You" flashing then select the region by pressing 1 2 or 3 (1=A 2=B 3=C ) on the remote. Press on again and the region will be set to the one you picked, Easy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray region switching NOT possible after firmware upgrade!
I got the BDP-S590 last week, set it up with no trouble and everything fine, until I checked the firmware and found that it was NOT the latest version, as described above. Despite this, I believed the "100% guarantee" in the product description that firmware updates would not affect the multi-zone feature of the player, and created an update disc. After...

This is the best dvd and bd player that is totally region free so you can watch all of you favorite discs its full auto so theres no need for changing the region status by remote if you combine it white your digital plasma 3d tv it will give you the best experience to watch your moves for a very good price in this package you got a hdmi cable and all types of plug in leads so if you are in the uk Europe or usa just plug it in the socket and away you go to make this reve short need a bd player that plays it all then this is it :}

1.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray region switching NOT possible after firmware upgrade!, 5 April 2014

I got the BDP-S590 last week, set it up with no trouble and everything fine, until I checked the firmware and found that it was NOT the latest version, as described above. Despite this, I believed the "100% guarantee" in the product description that firmware updates would not affect the multi-zone feature of the player, and created an update disc. After successfully installing the latest firmware, I then tried switching regions but now the player will not play Region A discs!

Since the multi-region feature was the main reason for buying the thing, I'm not very happy and I'm not very pleased with the erroneous claims made in the product description either. I tried to call Multi-System Electronics about the issue but no-one answered the call. So it'll just have to be a return and refund. Disappointing!

So, it's a fine Blu-ray player so long as you only want to watch Region B discs or never want to be able to update the firmware.
