I bought the Seiki SR4KP1 and it was delivered from Amazon yesterday. We set it up last night and it seems to work 100% Groovy!
It played my Australian "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" BR and it's Bonus Features just fine.
It also played my German PAL Northern Exposure DVD perfectly! In fact, I think it played it better than my now-extinct Oppo DV-981HD. I couldn't compare it to the Oppo but I think the Seiki's Upscaling looks a LOT better!
There is a Programmer Code that let's you into the Region and PAL settings and you can set it up to play PAL AND American DVDs. It seems you only have to change that setting once and from then on it'll play both PAL and American DVDs forever and a day. (I've already been beach-slapped in here for doing something against the rules, so I'm not sure I can post the code here - but it's easy to find, and if I find out it's ok, Ill post it).
The BR Region setting looks like you'll have to reset it whenever you play a "Different" BR Region than the one it's set to. So it's not automatic, but it's pretty easy to do and only takes a few seconds.
It's amazingly LIGHT WEIGHT and I really like the Displays for Time, Chapters, et al.
EDIT: October 13, 2017:
One correction: The Remote is serious crap. Flimsy and Badly Designed: To Rewind and then Play is basically an annoyingly Two-Handed Operation.
EDIT: October 16, 2017:
I just found out that the Seiki plays Data from a Burned Disc. It has no USB port (except one on the back for Technician Support, I think) but it will play mp4s from a DVD-ROM (UDF) burned DVD.
