For me, when ALL things are considered (reliability, speed, DVD PQ, price, audio, tweakability, firmware updates, etc.), Oppo is my current fav.
Absolutely! What kind of a BD player one buys is a matter of personal preference. I don't think either PQ or AQ is affected very much, if at all, by the BD player playing the BD. I agree that the Oppo provides customer support, timely firmware updates, and flexibility that is unrivaled by any other BD player. Even the price ia all right when looked at in the correct light. I went cheap on my first all regions player, the LG from World-Import, which I have posted about before. The result of that was my having utterly wasted more than $200 because the player failed during warranty but World-Import couldn't fix it and wouldn't replace it. If I had bit the bullet and bought an Oppo in the first place I would have saved considerable money and even more heartburn.

I liked Jack Reacher
a lot when I saw it in the theater. Still, I decided not to buy the BD. I just felt that as good as the film was, it wasn't quite good enough to convince me to buy it for my BD collection.
