  • Pros: It upscales beautifully, extending the life and usefulness of DVDs, while increasing their impact. Plays esoteric CD formats as well. Works well in my system.
  • Cons: The 981 has no cons that I am aware of.

"This is an outstanding HDMI 1080P HD upverting Player!"

  • Pros: Excellent resolution from regular DVD commercial movies; top quality sound; lightweight and thin; reasonable price; performs like the high tech player it was designed to be. It is truely an engineering marvel in all areas.
  • Cons: The remote control is a bit daunting, with no less than 49 tiny buttons on it and several menus, but most of them I don't use anyway. I basically use Play, Pause, Movie Menus, the memory function, and of course the Eject button.

  • Pros: It plays burns, regular dvds, etc. there are a ton of features. Its about time someody came out with a dvd player that is not a peice of junk. This thing is fast, when you push play there is no delay at all. it plays immediately.
  • Cons: Really cant think of any. I bought this dvd player straight from "oppo digital" and it was a refurb but has a just like new warranty. It plays excellent.

"***Upconversion noticeably better than PS3 IMHO***"

SFergs, CNET
11 March 2009
  • Pros: Extremely low profile. Very sleek looking black case. Simple dashboard buttons, HDMI connection, auto-play upon disc insertion, outstanding upconversion and It just looks cool.
  • Cons: The remote sucks. I can't say anything good about it other than it works. It's not back-lit although buttons glow but you can't read anything with the lights off. Remote is cluttered, common buttons such as play, stop, FF, RW are not prominent.
