Oppo DV-981HD Upscaller

Strengths: Excellent upscaller, ease of installation.

Weakness: Flimsy Disk Tray; remote extreamly difficult to read.

Was able to hack my way through the setup without using the manual. The imagery is excellent. Wish they had made the remote easier to read with better contrast and larger fonts. Also, most of my other remote do not have codes for the Oppo.

OPPO Brings New Life to your standard DVDs. I choose this DVD player based on it's features and options, I just love it!
