Hi All, I am a current PS3 user. It's getting close to its 5 year birthday and with all of the wear and tear on it I'm fearing that it will soon give up the ghost. I've really liked using it as my BDP for the entire time, with its only weakness being the loud internal fan that kicks up during BD playback. Luckily I tend to have movies on fairly loud so I don't hear it most of the time, but on quieter passages I can occasionally be distracted by it. For my next BDP, I would like: 1. To spend $500 or less 2. To have BD load times near to the PS3 3. To be able to play the 50 or so DVD-A and SACD discs that I own (currently the PS3 plays SACD and my old Pioneer RP91 plays DVD-A but I'd really like to retire that player). 4. To have great 1080p upscaling of DVD content (ideally 24p would have been great but I understand the Oppo dropped that feature). 5. Solid build quality. 6. Ability to connect external storage devices for BD-Live and other content. 7. Of course great A/V playback of all BD/DVD/SACD/DVD-A/CD media. From my research it seems the Oppo not only is good or great at all of these things, but also seems to be the "only game in town" in the $500 and under range. Am I wrong? Is there another machine I should be looking at? I'm looking to pull the trigger on Wednesday so feedback sooner rather than later would be appreciated! Thanks!
