glangford experinece is mine as well. I have not seen the OPPO go on sale. Used and refurbs are the route to take when looking for cheaper prices. Right now the OPPO 103 is still pretty new, so it will probably a "wait" before we see some hit the used market etc. As you can see, since the 103/105 were annouced, we saw a "flood" of the OPPO previous models hit the classified forum, as members are looking to upgrade to the latest version of their Blu Ray player.
