    Hi all,
    Just after a bit of advice.I've got a massive dvd collection which has been neglected for years.Dusted them off and thought to myself i'll watch a few.Using a cheap as chips Sony BDP S480 that upscales to a certain degree.The picture isn't the best but watchable considering where the tech was at the time
    I was offered a second hand oppo BDP 83 for not much cash and told it was a good upscaler of dvd media plus the fact i can throw in bluray aswell so no need for 2 machines.Just how good is the upscaling of dvd's on the oppo?
    Thanks in advance.

    It is very good indeed, with 4K now being common I'd also look at the 93 and the 103D and see whether you can get a good deal on those.

    The rubber band that opens and closes the drawer will perish over time. It's an easy but expensive fix....£36 from Oppo. Might be worth asking if it's had a replacement band. If not, I'd haggle. ;)
