I've got a BDP-83 and I've had similar issues as well. You are correct that there haven't been any firmware updates for the 83 in a while. I feel like Oppo abandoned 83 owners as soon as the 93 came out.
OPPO confirmed for me that the last firmware released (I think some time in 2012) was the final for (for now) as the player hasn't been locking up or experiencing any issues with new BD releases to come out as of late...

For a problem as widespread as this. I would have liked the opportunity to upgrade to a better model then being told, "Turn off all the features of the player and maybe it will work."
Which problems, specifically, are you encountering...the same ones as me? That is, the player just freezes up or sometimes won't respond to the OPEN/CLOSE command for the tray?

For a $500 blu-ray player to function like this, has kind of soured me on Oppo. My friend says I should upgrade to the 103, but I'm doing alot of re-thinking about that.
I know what you mean; though I received the player as a holiday gift, the $500 price point seems "final ceiling" for me in terms of budget -- that's all I really want to spend on any source component to be honest, so when my wife heard the new OPPOs cost far beyond that, she got nervous because she too thinks our '83 may be on its way out...

For me, I clear out persistent storage, which most of the time has maybe 1MB of data in it,
Yes -- for me as well; I always seem to have just 1MB of data in mine too...

whenever I have a disc that fails to load. Sometimes I have to do a hard power off (physically hold in the power button) and that clears the issue.
Right -- the ONLY thing that seems to unlock or unfreeze this player from ANY of its functioning issues is to do the hard power off, then power on...but this is such a pain in the neck when you're settled in, all your audio and video ready to go to view a disc...
