I read a review of this unit(BDX2500) and the review was really good, with good picture and good streaming as well. Price wasn't bad either at 1round $110.
It seems as soon as I find a unit that seems like a good choice, things wind up being wrong with it.
Panny, seems to have streaming issues,Samsung reliability problems, sony streaming and compatibility problems, and now the Toshiba with just turning on. What the heck happened to Quality Control?(yes I'm a QC guy)
Oppo seems great, but I'm not about to shell out $500 for a Blu-ray player, especailly since I don't need a lot of features it has anyways. I did email them about a simpler unit without all the chrome and flash and they said it wasn't going to happen. I think they'd make a lot more money with a $200 stripped down model than they will selling fewer $500 ones.
