I am looking for a new blu-ray player that is flexible (will play most regions and possibly even PAL. USB would be nice but I have AppleTV so I dont really need Wi-Fi or too many bells and whistles).
Is there a reasonably priced player that anyone can recommend? Too many options, I'm having a hard time getting started in my search.
Thanks in advance for your help.

You need to tell us what country you live in or we are wasting our time. Assuming you are in the USA/Canada:
Amazon has a few that resellers sell. All I can tell you is that you have to be VERY careful with Amazon resellers because Amazon does not in any way back you up if you have a dispute. If you buy a "region free" player and it's not really region free, you are probably stuck with it.
Another possible source is here:
Region free players can't be bought in US stores and must be bought online.
Thanks. Yes, I'm in the US.
are the players sold by a site like 220-electronics.com "unlocked" or something or are they just the retail versions. I guess my questions is if I buy a player from there, am I getting the same product that I would get from Amazon or Best Buy, or is it "modified" in some way?
Thank you for your help and I apologize if my questions seem amateur-ish, which I admittedly am.
Read the descriptions carefully so you get the features you want. Some players are only region free for DVD. Others play PAL discs but do not convert from PAL to NTSC for compatibility with N. American TVs.
