Summary: Everything you've read about this player is true. It is a high quality cd, dvd,sacd & dvd-audio player. Its the only player you need to buy unless you want to record cd's or dvd's. The audio is superb, with no distortion and true and natural sounds coming from the instruments being played. Even heavy distorted guitar music sounds crisp and clean. That being said, the player does have a few glitches.
Nice piece of equipment - might not be worth the extra cost

Summary: This is a great player with all the bells and whistles. It is also built very well; sturdy and heavy unlike many players out there these days. However, I use it with my projector on a 106" screen and I'm not sure that the minimal added quality is worth double the cost of the next best player.
Summary: I was pumped and ready to get this great blu ray player that cost me hundreds. It finally arrived. Very cool packaging, fancy box, and cool gidgets inside. hooked it all up, played a movie and, yup, its a dvd player. Loading seemed slower than my 10 year old $100.00 pioneer...Remote kinda confusing..display will make you yawn....Unless it last for years, I wish I had spent less on something else...I think it said made in China too...
Summary: After having tried other Blu-ray players from Samsung and Sony, I wasn't satisfied. They were OK, but both had problems loading discs and sometimes required fiddling to get a disc past certain menus, etc. I came across the OPPO while searching Amazon and was amazed by the overwhelmingly positive feedback. At first, I thought that $500 was too much for a DVD player, but quickly realized that it was pretty reasonable given what I have already invested in the theater room.
Summary: Best out there. If you want to buy a amazing blue ray player you need to buy this oppo. I have had this blue ray for about 1 year and i can sure tell you that it will give you the best picture and comes with a fast download. You wont regreat buying this item. Pay a little more and you wont regreat having this item at home.
Summary: I have had many problems with the Netflix software. It freezes often, or will reboot (rebuffer) at the weirdest times. In addition, when you first turn it on, it takes for EVER for the selections on your queue to load. You would think that if someone is paying top of the line pridces, they would get top of the line software and not the cheapest available. OPPO you have let me down big time.
Summary: If I think this thing is so great why did I give it only 4 stars? Because it does not suport Amazon Video. Netflix, Vudu, others, but why not Amazon? As soon as my Oppo 93 supports Amazon Video I'll change this to 5 stars.
Summary: Leaving aside the fact that everything you hook to a TV these days has to offer streaming video "apps", the Oppo is simply an outstanding 3d Blu-ray player. The setup was nice and smooth. The audio decoding is great and the picture off of a properly prepared Blu-ray is simply stunning. There is simply nothing bad to say about this player. Although, I really could have done without the streaming apps. If you want those, get an Apple TV or a Roku.
