Cannot wait to give it a run! Surprised to see it on these forums so I thought I would post.
Oppo customer service is outstanding as well, a few years back my wife lost the remote to my 981 and I called oppo, they sent me a new remote FREE OF CHARGE and thanked me for being a customer! Who the heck does that sort of thing anymore? They have a customer for life!
Excited to read your impressions (they are forthcoming, right ;) ).
FWIW, being an avid fan of GT3, I absolutely l ove GT5 even if it is not the step forward it should have been... more a refinement and entry in HD.
I am using a cheap oppo DVD right now as my universal player... other than it being slow as molasses loading CD's it ready everything under the sun and works without a hitch!
if I get enough money to spare I would love to upgrade to the newer oppo. Is the video quality really that much better? I am using a Samsung 5000 level LED tv (40 inches). Not exactly videophile, but it was the best my student pocketbook could buy me.
