I know I can use things like regionset and VLC to bypass region encoding (which I already do), I was really wondering if you can actually purchase a drive that is "region free" without having to apply hacks/patches/voodoo etc.?

I've done the "google thing" and all I come up with is hacks while using windows, I'd really like to get a drive that is completely region free.

Any help or pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

All drives are region free when using linux, the region limitations are imposed by the OS and not the hardware.
I play discs from regions 1+2 and have never had to think about using regionset or any other fixes.
