Hell, at first I thought it was 1/2 the depth of the 83! I thought that was amazing!

Then it was pointed out that somewhere along the way, the abbreviation for inch was dropped.

Oh.

I'm not sure I understand the reference to the "eSATA" availability Is this for an internal or external HD ? If so , where is the connection ?

"eSATA" is the external version of the SATA interface, so it would suggest support for an external SATA drive (not going through the USB).

I was kind of wondering why the pictures of the prototypes weren't displaying a wifi symbol ... guess we know now. Here's what Oppo had to say on Twitter today:

I could never NOT touch a player after setup. Have to press the open/close button to insert/remove a disc. To do otherwise would involve 75 feet of walking just to avoid touching it. Would make no sense.

Oppo's dont' have an eject (open/close) button on the remote? That's what I always use so that it's open when I get there and just have to remove/insert the disc.

My remote is at my listening chair, which is 25 feet from the player (player is at the entrance to the room). As I said, I'd have to walk 75 feet to do what you suggest. Hardly worth it.

They do have an eject button on the remote, but my equipment cabinet has a door on it - I have to open that door before I can eject the tray, so I may as well use the button on the front panel. Others probably have similar reasons for using at least that front panel button.

Will an external eSATA HD be a requirement of its streaming potential ? Is this a Netflix requirement ? I'll have to research a bit to see the advantages of eSATA over USB .

Some info on eSATA for those that are curious...



External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment or eSATA is an external interface for SATA technologies. It competes with FireWire 400 and universal serial bus (USB) 2.0 to provide fast data transfer speeds for external storage devices.

SATA replaced ATA legacy technology as the next generation internal bus interface for hard drives. The SATA interface is more streamlined than ATA and provides serial architecture for greater speed than the older parallel technology. eSATA cables are narrow and can be up to 6.56 feet (2 meters) in length, whereas parallel cables are much wider and limited to a length of 18 inches (45.7 cm). With eSATA, the speed of SATA expands to encompass exterior storage solutions.

While eSATA reaches transfer rates of at least triple those of USB 2.0 and FireWire 400, it does have one drawback. eSATA requires its own power connector,

Original SATA, or SATA 150, has a data transfer speed of 150 megabytes per second (MB/s). SATA 3G doubled the speed to 300 MB/s or about .3 GB/s. This is also sometimes referred to as SATA 300.

The player carries the standard 1GB of built in memory required to be BD 2.0 compliant. This is more than enough storage required for streaming Netflix and other internet services.

eSATA is used for external media support for audio, video, and picture files. Think USB, but a crap top faster and more reliable.

You can register here to be notified by OPPO when the player is available for purchase.
