Excerpt: This is the very first review of an Oppo product, a company that is based out of Silicon Valley. We have been hearing only good things about it from various sources and if that doesn’t raise expectations, we don’t know what will.
Summary: Those who would be satisfied with a player that's "only" very good should consider the Sony BDP-S5100 (Est. $120) . Picture quality is a hair behind, though it should be more than good enough to impress the majority of viewers. The Sony also falls behind in high-end features and connectivity (no analog audio outputs, for example), but is otherwise well equipped, with robust streaming and 3D support.
Pros: Incredible load speed, Superior picture quality, Tons of features
Cons: Limited onboard streaming, Costly compared to other mainstream Blu-ray players
Excerpt: OPPO’s BDP-103EU is a state-of-the-art Blu-ray player, matching a luxurious, heavyweight build quality with an astonishing range of features. In addition to two HDMI outputs, external sources can take advantage of the player’s high-grade processing via its twin HDMI inputs, while USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi capability make it easy to play back your own media files.
Oppo BDP-103 Universal 3D 4K Blu-ray Player Review
10 December 2012
Excerpt: At the 2012 CEDIA Expo the show floor may have had lots of 4K displays, new speakers to demo, and a whole host of audio and video products - but one device was shared in whispers. There was no booth... no demo room... just secret meetings all over the place. If you're a fan of our site you're probably aware that we're talking about the Oppo BDP-103 Blu-ray Player. At first glance the new Oppo looks both very similar and very different than the existing BDP-93 .
Conclusion: What's left to say about the Oppo's new BDP-103 universal Blu-ray player, except that it is currently the universal disc spinner to have and the one to beat and the fact that it doesn't cost you an arm, leg and kidney is just icing on the cake. There isn't anything this mighty player can't really do outside of a few missing formats, mainly ISO, and true UltraHD compatibility. Beyond that, the BDP-103 is all the player you need and then some.
Excerpt: I want to begin by stating that my BDP-103 was an impulse buy, and so far I have not regretted it. Before purchasing it, I had been eying the OPPO players for quite some time, probably a couple years if I'm honest. After toying with a few PC-based music and video sources for my home theater, I decided a multi-format disc player with some network features would suit my needs quite nicely.
