It had been a disappointment since day one. Due to the slow load times, audio drop outs, and handshake issues I wont be paying the absurd $85 to have it refurbished after such a short time. So time for a new player.
I do love Blu Ray but after this experience I am feeling a bit jaded, and I want to make sure I get a good quality player that will work properly and last.
So generally speaking how is the reliability of the OPPO players? From what I am reading they sound solid, and dont have issues like my samsung did. I guess I am just looking to hear any negative experiences anyone may have had with the OPPO players, just to know what to possibly expect.
Reliability of OPPO players is well above average compared to other OEMs.
OPPO takes great care in trying to use parts that are both quality and allows the player to be affordable to the buyer, thus creating a real value to their customers.
Their players also come standard with a full 1 yr warranty, and if anything should happen during that period, you are covered by their warranty... and for the most part, those who do need service usually report a very fast turn around time from OPPO.
Just as well, the history of OPPO service and support has revealed that they even offer VERY affordable repair service for players that are no longer under warranty.
No matter how you slice it, the overall experience of owning an OPPO product is much less stressful than from other OEMs like Samsung and the like. ESPECIALLY Samsung! Been there, done that, never going back.
