Summary: Oppo is a great product. only had a few little quirks with certain disks . My hats off to the person I got this player from and hope this review finds its way to him. Bought this player used and the person that sent it to me had the original manual and remote and everything was packed up and sent in the original box. It was like opening a brand new one.
Summary: This machine, made to Oppo's usual exacting standards, plays virtually any format of disc (Blu-ray, PAL, NTSC, DVD, CD, CD-ROM, etc) at a reasonable price. Operations are relatively straightforward for such a device. The one it doesn't do (alas) is to play discs from other region codes than 1 (the United States).
Summary: I was attracted to the BD-80 due to owning SACDs I wanted to be able to play over HDMI as well as to owning a seperate high-end video processor. My biggest complaint (and I know people are going say this is not the place) is that Blu-ray still sucks (can you say "bleeding edge"). Easily half of the new disks with cool BD-live content over the past couple of years have been problematic (and all of them have been unplayable on the Blu-ray drives in my new Dell and HP...
Summary: The OPPO BDP-80 is a fantastic Blu-Ray DVD player. This unit is also available as multi-region. The Hollywood cartel in an attempt to LOWER DVD sales has created various regions. This means that a movie sold in Australia or England will usually not play on an American DVD player. There are many fine movies that are not for sale in the American market but you will find them for sale from England or Australia.
Summary: Actually i am residing in INDIA and i have ordered this player for me to use here.Since amazon doesn't deliver items to India i ordered this item to my sister's address who resides in U.S.A. She handed it over to me today here in India and i have installed it .Along with the player the same day i have ordered a package of DIE HARD series BD Discs from Amazon which also handed over to me by my sister today.
Summary: I have been looking at Oppo products for some time on the web. They have an outstanding reputation for quality and performance. I purchased the BDP-80 player because it can play Blu-Ray, DVD, DVD-A, SACD and just about any format on a disc that you can load into it. It will play all through a standard HDMI cable. That hasn't always been the case for DVD-A and SACD decks, at least it wasn't obvious to me. Also, the price was right.
Summary: I replace my old DVD for the Oppo 80 in order to play a wider variety of media (namely BLU-RAY, SACD & DVD-A discs). Work perfectly well. Solid construction, ease of setup, speed, and the ability to play almost all audio/video media sets this player way above others in this price range. Simply a perfect machine.
Summary: Have had this player since early July. I purchased it due to Oppo's reputation, reviews that I have read, pricing and for the 7.1 analog audio outputs. One thing that I needed was the analog audio outs. I probably would have better audio (I find the audio good/very good, but not great) if I bought the BDP 83, but $499 was not in the budget. I got this unit for $289 and I now see that its going for $489 because Oppo has discontinued production due to a parts shortage.
Summary: I already owned an OPPO DVD player, and found it to be the best (out of maybe 12) that I had ever bought, so I was thrilled to find a region-free Blu-ray player from the same company. It works as described. A few comments: -setting the player to Region 0 allows it to play DVDs from all regions (I tested 2 and 4), and is much more convenient than resetting the region code for every disk.
