Default Re: 0ppo 95/Multi region

I was confused by this model and sent an email to OPPO:

Last week I bought the Oppo 95 Blu Ray Player. I bought it after going to your site and seeing the ads.
There is only one model listed, yet I see my instructions say that this is a "zone 1" model, other ads show it as a zone free model. Did I get the wrong one? Is there a zone free model of this?

Can you let me know. Thanks!

Their response:
All players which are shipped from official resellers are DVD Region 1 and Blu-ray A locked. It is possible to hardware modify the player to support alternative regions, but we do not support such changes to the hardware.

Best Regards,

Customer Service
OPPO Digital, Inc.

I sent another email to make sure:
Does this mean that the unit from Amazon and other places are NOT factory OPPO units but are fixed up outside of the company? And now I see they mention that $100 update may be available.

Please see: (The Amazon listing, I included the link)

These players are modified by third parties and are not authorized by OPPO.
