Summary: The first thing anyone should realize before purchasing is that with an hdmi cable, the bluray picture quality will be identical with any player, regardless of price. the advantage of this player is with the standard def upscaling, build quality and codec compatability. whether this is worth the premium price is up to the individual. personally i am very happy with it and feel it is worth the money.
Just doesn't get any better than Oppo Blu Ray DVD player

Summary: OPPO BDP-93 Universal Network 3D Blu-ray Disc Player I am totally stoked about my new Oppo DVD player. I never thought I'd spend that much money on a DVD player. But, after reading all the reviews on what's available out there, including Consumer Reports online, I decided that buying anything other than an Oppo would be a huge mistake. I'm not going to go into all the specs and features here.
Summary: Until yesterday, I'd been using the Denon DVD-3800BDCI Blu-ray Disc DVD/CD Player, for which I paid $2,000 when it first came out, and I gave it a stellar review on Amazon (currently, top billing in the review list). However, I'm a big fan of SACD and I always regretted that the Denon did not support that format. However, the Denon did run flawlessly until a few weeks ago. Suddenly, it stopped playing some DVDs and even some CDs.
Summary: I've been dissatisfied with blu-ray products. Not with the visual results, which have been universally pleasing, but with the durability and...well, the elegance of the players. Go into the big-box stores and you see players from all leading manufacturers -- Sony, LG, Panasonic, Samsung --bidding each other down to the lowest price point.
Excellent build quality, tons of useful features, superb video and audio

Summary: I recently set up a mini home theater in my den, and I wanted to enable it for Bluray playback to take advantage of the 42" 1080p HDTV I have set up there. This device also lets me play a host of different media, like SACD, DVD-A and the like using just one unit, which saves me space in terms of components. I'll be honest, it's more than I need in this room, but I have plans to eventually integrate it into the main system in my living room. More on that later.
If You Want the Very Best Media Player, This is It

Summary: As there are already over two hundred prior reviews for this player, I expect few will bother to read mine. Nonetheless, I should like to make a few comments about the BDP-93. I was one of the people who was a beta-tester for this player, having received my first one from Oppo themselves immediately upon its being made available to us testers. I have upgraded my player each and every time a new firmware release (including the beta ones) were introduced.
Summary: I'm listening to the BDP-93 right now, and the sound is sharp and detailed. The recording is an SACD of Dvorak's Slavonic Dances and the orchestral textures are quite thick. The OPPO seems to pull out the details of the inlines of the music and make it all beautifully clear. I went through a brief period of stumbling during setup, which happened in a rushed period of my life. No fault of the unit.
Summary: Other reviews detail the technical brilliance of the OPPO BDP-93 and it is an incredible value. My story starts at 8:30PM Friday evening when my picture started flickering. I tried a variety of fixes including trying multiple movies and rebooting. Nothing worked. In desperation I called the service number, and late on a Friday night a tech answered, and immediately solved my problem. How anyone could rate their service below five stars eludes me.
Summary: To echo all the other reviewers, this universal disk player is absolutely provides absolutely outstanding performance both visually and sonically. But, to add to the owner's experience, I would like to focus on the customer support aspect of Oppo. I emailed them on a Sunday evening that I was experiencing stuttering video on the LIFE BBC blu-ray disks (the Oprah Winfrey version).
