Beware of Amazon, Oppo has solid customer service.

Summary: This review is for Amazon and Oppo Customer Service, not the player. Amazon had a credit card offer that allowed me to buy the BDP105 at no intrest, so long as the full balance was paid in 12 months. Amazon did not show expedited shipping, but the supplier, Oppo digital did on their web site. I contacted Amazon by chat, and they promised me they could offer 1 day shipping for less than $10 extra, and I placed the order.
Cinavia infected firmware mars an otherwise awesome player

Summary: I am a HTPC user and would want this to stream my library from my external hard drives. At the time of this review, the player will play back Cinavia infected files as long as they are not on an optical disc, and as long as the file type is not m2ts. However, one must keep in mind that the studios forced Oppo to remove ISO file support from the previous generation player (the BDP-95), so any firmware update in the future might enforce Cinavia more broadly on the BDP-105.
Summary: The player has very good picture and audio quality but the software is very buggy. There is a severe lip-sync problem with the hmdi inputs and Marvel video processor despite a "fix" that requires you to manually set the delay each time you change the source. Really, this is unacceptable for a player that costs $1200. The dlna software does not work properly with any of the various dlna servers I have tried.
