    I'm interested in buying one at a reasonable price. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    There are only two options...

    Oppo 203 ($550) and LG UP970 ($250)...

    There have been no other official announcements... Although lots of rumors...

    My new LG player buzzes but I ordered the twice as expensive (although I know I will love it) Oppo 203 from ABT Electronics! Sorry I didn't see the earlier post!

    My Philips 7502 UHD player finally got its promised Dolby Vision update today, so now I can see the few (though increasingly numerous) Dolby Vision-capable UHD releases for myself.

    ...and he's so upset that he cannot even type correctly! ;) Hang in there, Sam -- hopefully your firmware updates are coming soon.

    I'm not fully Dolby Vision capable yet, either -- my Vizio display supports the format, but my Sony X800 player never will. It really hasn't been a big deal for me so far, but the release of Saving Private Ryan in a couple of months may be the push I need to upgrade my player and move the Sony to our bedroom.

    After seeing your post I looked into this player and found that Sam's Club(online) sells it but it's labeled as 7302 model. I was looking for a DV capable unit for my bedroom TV and I'm going to give it a try.

    Yes, it's the same player. Sam's club/Costco have a different model number, but it's the same player. Sometimes those players come with an included HDMI cable.
