Default Life BD set for sale (UK import; BBC series)

First of all, price is $40 shipped in lower 48 via first class USPS. Add a little for Canada.

Second of all, US/Canada viewers must have a compatible blu-ray player and possibly a compatible display (unless the player converts 50hz to 60hz) in order to view this series. For example, my Oppo player converts the 50hz to 60hz and sends that to my display.


Here is info I pulled from blu-ray.com:

US Blu-ray Players compatible with 50hz content:

Denon DBP1610 [Outputs 50hz content at 50hz - cannot convert 50hz content to another refresh rate]
LG BD 370 [Can convert 50hz content to 60hz]
LG BH200 [Outputs 50hz content at 50hz - cannot convert 50hz content to another refresh rate]
Momitsu BDP-899
Oppo BDP-80 [Can convert 50hz content to 60hz]
Oppo BDP-83 [Can convert 50hz content to 60hz]
Panasonic DMP-BD30 prior to firmware 1.6
Panasonic DMP-BD60 [Outputs 50hz content at 50hz]
Pioneer Elite BDP-05FD [Outputs 50hz content at 50hz, also up-converts 50hz content]
Pioneer BDP-51FD [Outputs 50hz content at 50hz, also up-converts 50hz content]
Samsung BD-P1000
Samsung BD-P1200
Samsung BD-P1400
Samsung PD-P1500 [Outputs 50hz content at 60hz]
Samsung PD-P1600 [Outputs 50hz content at 60hz]
Samsung BD-P2550 [Outputs 50hz content at 60hz]
Sherwood BDP-5004

Note: You will need a 50hz compatible display to play back 50hz content with some of the above US players (eg. Panasonic DMP-BD60) or use a video processor to convert it to a compatible rate.

Other players (including the Samsung players) convert the content to another frame rate (eg. 60hz) so they don't need a 50hz compatible TV.

US Blu-ray Players NOT compatible with 50hz content:

Panasonic DMP-BD30 with firmware 1.6 or later
Panasonic DMP-BD35
Sony BDP-S350
Sony BDP-S550
Sony Playstation 3


No need to wait until June 1 US release. This is the Attenborough narrated edition. PM if interested.
