Need a new BDP, current one very annoying
I currently have a Sony BDP-BX2 bought from Cosco many years ago.
This player has a couple of really annoying issues. Firstly, it takes forever to begin playing the disc. Secondly, it skips all the frigging time.
I'll be watching a movie, and it'll freeze, sometimes picking back up several minutes later in the movie.
This was a fairly cheap BDP when I bought it in ~2008, like $200.
I am thinking about replacing it but do I pony up and get a Oppo 103, or just go with a cheaper consumer model?
What does the Oppo have over say a Samsung - Smart 3D Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player?
I don't need 3D, and I don't need WiFi, I don't need any kind of network player capabilities.
I just want it to play movies well.
What say you?
