Oppo DV971H Vs Others

You may have read my thread regarding a dvd with hdmi for under £100!

I think the main opinion on that thred was that a player like the sony NS76 would be best for that money.

Im now considering paying a bit more for my money.

How much better would the Oppo player be? worth the extre £60???

I believe it is imported? so is this machine better at playing r1 discs or is it good at r2?

Thanks

I'm in a similiar position to you and I've now convinced myself to spend slightly more money and buy an oppo.
Will probably end up buying direct from oppo rather than a UK reseller as I should save 20 notes after import duty (if i get stung)
I've seen on other forums posting saying that the visual reproduction matches/exceeds players that cost 300.

how much can you get it for direct? and what sort of tax/inport etc do you have to pay?

My only worry about an inport is that it will have a 2pin plug, also will it be multiregion?

Mult region unlock is just a remote hack

The region setting is easy to change/remove

My only concern would be service.

The UK distributers have been exemplary in swapping out faulty units/components, of which there have been some.

The small saving isnt worth it IMHO.

It's 125ukp including shipping import duty should just be vat.

Or you could just buy from the likes of crtprojectors.co.uk, and have the peace of mind that if anything goes wrong, you won't have to sell a kidney to send it back for repair or replacement
