With everyone else throwing in their two cents . . . I can’t resist my own pocketful of change.
I’ve had my OPPO 93 for a little over a year and have read every post on the Oppo 93 Owner’s Thread. (yes, all of them from the beginning)
I bought the 93 to play regular DVDs and especially Blu-Ray Discs that two other, cheaper players refused to do with any type of regularity and consistency (like skipping whole chapters and freezing up – even after being upgraded).
The Oppo 93 has played every single disc that I’ve thrown at it. No glitches, no failures, no problems whatsoever. I use none of the “extra” features (Netflix streaming , for example). I dropped Netflix streaming and use my Roku for Amazon. I did not even know about ISO before coming to this thread. (Because it isn’t officially supported then it isn’t in the owner’s manual)
So, it seems to me that the screamers on this thread for the last few weeks are upset because they can’t record the movies they’ve bought (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) to hard drives because they don’t want to expose their expensive Blu Ray discs to handling by inserting them into the player. Geez. How much does that array of hard drives cost and how many back-up copies of movies could you have bought with the money?
Anyhow, my point here is that anyone reading this thread who is thinking about buying an OPPO 93 to play and enjoy movies, please know that it’s the best thing out there. As a wise person on this thread is known to have said (more than once) buy the OPPO for what it does, and not for what it doesn’t do.
