    I just received mine last week directly from the manufacturer. This is probably way more than I need but I liked the fact that it did not include the streaming services and since I have a new LG OLED65E6P I figured it would be a good match.

    Congrats, Keith!

    I've had my Oppo 203 for a few months now. Love it! And...I don't even have a 4k display yet. But I find it very easy-to-use and love the way it's menus and such are laid out.

    Enjoy!

    Keith,

    That's the same player/display combo I have so you're going to love it.

    Congrats Keith! I have the same display as well, and it's awesome! Don't forget to check for a UDP-203 firmware update. Oppo released the latest official public firmware on 2/27, and who knows what version your unit has installed. It fixes several vexing problems, so IMO you should update as soon as possible.

    Thanks to all. The first thing I did was to connect to my wireless internet and install the updates. So far I have only watched a few blue ray disc from Netflix and the picture is stunning.

    Edit: I just noticed that I have been a member since 2003 with only 10 post. There should be a prize for being the longest tenured lurker :)

    My one complaint about this player so far is that they dropped the Angle button from the remote. True that not many discs use that, but some do. The new remote only lets you access this by hitting an "Options" button then scrolling down to "Angle". Luckily the older BDP-93 remote still works with this player so I'm using that instead, though I have to keep the other remote around mainly because I can't active the convert-2D-to-3D function with the old one. I wouldn't use that much anyways, much less than the Angle button.

    Issues like this are but one reason why I just love universal remotes. :)

    I am thinking of this player when I get by the WAF and I'm wondering...if I buy this from 220 electronics with a region free mod, does that invalidate the Oppo warranty?

    If it's a hardware mod then no, it does not invalidate the warranty. It's been proven that the BDP-103/105 hardware mods work just fine with the 203 (I use one myself), and the external version can be purchased on eBay for around $60. That makes buying the player directly from Oppo and getting the mod on eBay more cost effective:

    UDP-203 from Oppo: $567 shipped
    eBay RF Mod: $60 shipped

    $627 total cost vs. the $699 that 220 Electronics is charging.

    Link to the external mod:

    Thanks Doug. That mod you linked to doesn't mention the 203, is to compatible with the 203. It looks like it used an HDMI port, does it?

    It uses the USB port and it works with both the 103 and 203 players.

    What Robert said, but it also uses the RS-232 port. ;)
