    Buying directly from Oppo is the best way to go IMO. Why get a middleman involved?

    Unless you can get a price break from somebody like Value Electronics.

    Last week, I bought that Region Free Mod Kit for my Oppo 203 and it works perfectly. I then placed my Region Free Modified Oppo 103 into my Bedroom HT and moved my Region Free Oppo 93 into my Computer Room HT.

    I don’t think Oppo’s are discounted. Oppo itself may have refurbished models for a discount. I’m thinking I bought my 203 via Amazon, but the seller was Oppo.

    Something that Oppo does not permit its dealers to do AFAIK. The only way to get a price break on an Oppo is to buy used or buy refurbished.

    Bombay Electronics seems to be offering me a price break on the region-free modification. Right now I'm looking at a price of $591 including the region-free mods (normal price is $699 still listed officially). Maybe that conversion kit is having an effect on the market. Or maybe its the military-vets discount.

    Holding off till Dec 8th (credit card cycle (more points) and also closer to Christmas. Also for warranty period reasons). Money is put away for this but my credit card point total almost covers the purchase entirely.

    Wife is getting a nice new laptop at the same time.

    Next year is the year for the new 75" UHD-4K TV (with HDRxx and DV). Looking hard at Vizio M 75.

    I ordered from Oppo via Amazon. It shipped directly from Oppo.

    Why does holding off the purchase mean more points. Isn’t it the same points whenever you buy? Are you sure the price break will be good until then?
