I am done with OPPO. I can buy another brand and replace it regularly to get over any issue and still be ahead.
Will not buy or recommend OPPO again.
I said the same thing to myself before, regarding Panasonic and Samsung;
that's when I bought my Oppo 103.
I will never purchase a Panny and Sammy BD player, ever! ...Oppo for life.
...And Sony best second. ...Even if Sony made many many mistakes for many many years; in their malpractice. But Sony get very very little from me now; only BD players for less than $150.
...And no Sony TVs for me. ...But I still look @ their front projectors (3D) and 4K movies.
And regarding the 83; only one BD title (X-Men latest) that won't play, because of no more support from Mediatek...we cannot blame Oppo for that...it's not their fault. ...Plus FOX studios ain't much cooperative either, and not only here, but also with all other BD player brands and for many years, because of their deep paranoia and constant changes with their codecs (piracy paranoia).
FOX have been playing hard balls with all of us, and for a very long time too.
...One of my least favorite Hollywood studios; and from various aspects of their business with customers, us, who support them and keep filling their cash machines.
Anyway, Oppo has nothing to do with FOX and the way FOX operates.
Plus, Mediatek too, of course. It is Mediatek who doesn't support their video processors any longer, and not Oppo. ...Oppo is taking a hit here, because of unpredicted life's circumstances (Mediatek & FOX).
And that is all there is to it. ...In my sincere and intelligent and logical deduction/opinion.
Oppo is still the best of the best.
