I have been having sporadic issues playing back various standard DVDs on every Bluray player I have owned thus far, so I decided get the OPPO DV983H player, based on all of the great reviews. I have a large library of DVDs and I was hoping the OPPO would play them back well enough that I would not feel compelled to re-buy every DVD in Bluray.
I'm really impressed this player. It's playback of DVDs better than any player I have had thus far. It's also a high quality SACD/DVD Audio player as well. It amazes me how these guys can make such a great product for such a reasonable price. I can't wait until their Bluray player is in production.
I'm not saying that it is s good as Bluray (because it isn't), but it is good enough that I have no problem watching my current DVD collection.
