Thanks for chiming back in, Todd! There certainly could be an issue with the combination of gear people are using. Either way, it seems just a little more uncharacteristic for an Oppo product to have as many people I've been seeing to being reporting problems and even as many people have been commenting that they had returned their units.

I've had an Oppo product (or multiple) in one way or another since they first started coming out with DVD players here in the US, over a decade ago. I had about 3 different of their DVD players. Then came the BDP-83. My original BDP-83 blu-ray player had some issues, tray loading mechanical problems and a couple other minor problems, but it was still a good experience overall, mainly because they actively try to work to fix the problems. My current 103 is serving our family's purpose fantastically with very little problems. My Oppo PM-1 Headphones are used and enjoyed nearly every day since I got them.

With my previous experience with their products, I feel confident that they will fix the problems, however this time around I'm kind of torn. While I don't entirely feel the urgency to be an "early adopter" to work through the kinks they might have, I also hear that there are a good amount of people who don't have problems, similar to your experience, so... decisions decisions!

I've got a handful of UHD movies that are just sitting and waiting to be watched, too. So that doesn't help...

It's understandable that reading so-so firsthand reports gives you pause. That's the one of the great benefits and problems with the internet... nice to get user accounts, but it's very hard to know true circumstances.

This 4K business (mixed with HDR) is a difficult trick to pull off. Having seen pros somewhat struggle with getting some 4K equipment to play nicely with other 4K equipment (at industry events), it makes me wonder if some of the issues discussed on the net have resulted from incompatible gear, associated gear that has old firmware...or poorly supported firmware...,or (more likely) needs to tweak some internal settings to make things work perfectly. Certainly not accusing anyone of being deceitful or dishonest...

On my end, the 203 seemed to like my LG B6... and the older 1080p gear. I just quickly scanned through the other reviews that have been published for the 203, and no major glaring issues seemed to come about in those professional settings. Yes, there may have been a few hiccups, but it looks like everything was worked-out.

Well, I guess this is the machine for me when I go 4k. Looking forward to it. Should happen this year. I've been saying that for a couple years now, but it should be this year . . .

Bummer. Next thing we'll read is 4K Blu-ray player's manufacturers dropping the 3D feature from their UHD BR players. Then 4K front projectors doing the same. Then 3D will be truly dead going forward in our homes.

It's ok though, 8K will come, and it should add some more field-of-death in this full picture. I mean ... field-of-depth.
Like a more 3-dimensional picture, but without the 3D glasses.

That would also make the 2D people more ... happy. A life without glasses is like being there Live.

I used to work up the mountains; in some days the sky was blue transparent without a single cloud, only the sun making the snow caps so bright that if you were not wearing sunglasses it would burn your eyes down to behind their retinas.

Speaking of brightness and 3D: http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/tvs-e...d-best-hdr-yet

Read on, it's a short review anyway, very.

Re: OPPO Digital UDP 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Player Review Discussion Thread

I recently purchased this player. I used Jason Bourne blu ray and 4k blu ray as my litmus test. Sadly, the 4k looks worse. I have take pictures of it too. Crutchfield can not figure it out. They said best guess is that it's because TV is not HDR but I shouldn't see pixelation regardless. Any help is appreciated.
