The new Oppo 203 has major problems. One of main problems is that for many owners it simply cannot play 2D, 3D or 4K discs without the unit completely freezing during play back. This is my current situation and it happens with every disc I put in the unit. Reinstalling the latest firmware doesn't resolve the issue. Sound drop outs are also a big issue with the Oppo 203, as is 3D and 2D judder. Oppo itself seem to be rather nonchalant about bringing out firmware updates to resolve any of these issues.
I find it utterly astonishing that the writer of this review https://www.avforums.com/review/oppo-udp-203-4k-ultra-hd-blu-ray-player-review.13335 gives this new 4K player from Oppo a 9. Its brushed aluminium box that houses the componemts looks very nice, it's just a pity that the components are not working properly for many buyers. You could call the Oppo 203 4K blu-ray player a case of 'fur coat and no knickers'.
