As far as I know hardly any manufacturer sells region free BD players because of the reason you already know. One popular practice is to buy a region-locked player and hack it using available codes through remote. However, they are just hacks and you can't held responsible anyone if doesn't work. My friendly suggestion is increase your budget, as I guess you are not going to buy BD players every 2 years or so. 5K-8K range is good to start with, but then again you will probably have to go for a better one. As for me I have a LG BD 550 (region C, around 7K). Its OK and nothing more. Now going for a better region-free one. In my opinion SONY models are marginally better than Philips in terms of performance, loading time, remote, NTFS/FAT 32 issue, upscaling. Check by yourself : customer feedbacks in AMAZON US, at least thats what I usually do. If you are really into films, invest heavily - you won't regret. Me more into music, so not sure about me getting a OPPO!

Within your range you can get Samsung D5100 at about 6.9K..It plays all video audio formats..Besides it has excellent GUI.

Get the Sony, it's region free for DVD out of the box and is nearly identical to the much respected BDP-S370 apart from the addition of the ability to read NTFS formatted HDDs and the removal of one of the digital outputs.
