Oppo BDP-80

CNET
4 September 2010
  • Summary: Oppo's BDP-80 Blu-ray player doesn't perform well enough to make up for its lack of Wi-Fi, streaming media features, and 3D Blu-ray support.
  • Cons: No streaming media services like Netflix; lacks built-in Wi-Fi; does not support 3D Blu-ray; bare-bones user interface; DVD performance lags slightly behind competing players; relatively expensive for its feature set.

Oppo BDP-80 – affordable universal disc player

etechreviews.net
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: $500 priced the Oppo BDP-83 is one of the best performing Blu-ray disc players in the market. Now, the company has released – the Oppo BDP-80 that costs $290 with quite similar functionality of the BDP-83. However, it lacks inbuilt Wi-Fi and media streaming services. Fairly, the Oppo provides the option to go for a cheap Blu-ray player to attract the budget conscious users who just need a basic player.

Blu-ray from Oppo Just Got Cheaper

Gear Patrol
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Back in 2009, we covered Oppo’s long awaited Blu-ray player, the BDP-83 and it’s special edition counterpart . Both versions definitely sit at the top of the stand alone Blu-ray player heap in terms of image and audio quality, however at $500 and $899 a piece, they aren’t the most affordable machines. Understanding this complaint, Oppo has created a more wallet friendly player in the BDP-80 which will soon sell for a more reasonable $289.

OPPO BDP-80 Universal Blu-ray Player

Audio Ideas Guide
9 April 2010
  • Excerpt: “I was interested in this player as much for its audio capabilities as its video quality. That said, I started my evaluation with our standard Blu-ray and DVD video test discs through the Anthem LTX-500 1080p projector onto our Vutec 92″ pull-up screen. The discs included Joe Kane’s Digital Video Essentials in both Blu-ray and DVD editions, and the FPD Benchmark Software disc.

OPPO Digital BDP-80 Blu-ray player

Prillaman.net
25 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The BDP-80 owes a lot to its older big brother, the BDP-83, and that's an excellent starting point for any Blu-ray player. The removal of the BDP-83's ABT2010 video processor, the less robust analog section, and the plastic faceplate are the most obvious concessions that the BDP-80 makes relative to the BDP-83, which may be the most frequently reviewed and praised Blu-ray player on the market today.

  • Excerpt: Oppo Digital is a smallish US outfit that, until recently, had a product line-up consisting solely of DVD players. Now it has dropped them entirely for Blu-ray, of which it has three models. A while back we looked at its first one, the BDP-83, which was very impressive on a number of fronts — so impressive, in fact, that a famous high-end US audiophile brand released not much more than a badge engineered version of the unit at several times the price.
