I have purchased a total of 4 players from Oppo going all the way back to the DV-980H. I suspect that might have something to do with why I got an invite and others didn't.
Yes I ordered directly from them but only once before so maybe that has something to do with it.

Got the email to purchase the 205 today.
I signed up on April 9, and confirmed my email on May 9th.
I only made one direct purchase from Oppo (a 203).

FWIW, I signed up when I found out in early June. I was told last week there were five times the amount of signups as they had units coming in the last shipment so there was no chance I'd be getting one.

I just wish they'd told me that when I signed up in June because knowing many of the 205s were being snatched up for people to make a quick profit, I might have bought a 203 from them at that time while they were still available.

I signed before the 203 got its sign up list. I just got my 205 notice yesterday (day before?). Since I got my second 203 I decided to let some other lucky soul score the 205. You're welcome ;-)

For those wondering if Oppo is prioritizing previous customers, here's my data: I purchased my 103 direct from Oppo back in 2014. I signed up for the 205 email in April of this year and got my notification two days ago. I ordered the 205 today. I don't really need it (no 4K projector yet), but it's nice to have around if I want to try it out for awhile and see if I like it better than the 103. I'm sure I can always get my money back if I decide to sell it.

I signed up June 3rd for a 203...... crickets! At least I have a 103D, and has been wonderful! Still interested in the 203 if more should become available say around CHRISTMAS!

"New" Isn't always better, but you'll never know if you never give it a try!

Yes, unless Oppo surprises us with another production run, which doesn't seem likely.

Watch them selling on ebay for 3 times the price, as a matter of fact any Oppo will be inflated substantially.

I don’t think I’ll be selling mine. I love my 103, but the 205 is definitely overkill for my needs.

What's your source? I'm not doubting you... just that I've not seen anything official on the website.

Maybe you can trade your 205 for multiple 203s.

Can't tell a diff from the 8 other BD players i got and the insane good bullet proof Pioneer Elite DV-59 AVI i had since 2004. I did play the only 4k disc i have and it did look great with Planet earth ll. Tarzan lord of the jungle was not redone worth a hoot for DVD. Looks just like it did on Sat mornings in 1976.

I start my Year one SPACE1999 BD's next week and i am sure it will look super on the 203 as it was redone first class.
