Nice article, maybe not a critical review, but a good overview. I understand the Oppo has a big front proj. following.

For all those who think upconverting dvd players are a waste of money they should give OPPO a try, I bet they would sing a different tune. There's no risk, they offer a thirty day money back guarantee!

There is more than just upconverting going on and the difference is very noticable.

Since I got mine I have decided that I don't really care so much when the HD-DVDs come out (regardless of wheteher Blu-Ray or HDD). The price of "standard" dvds continues to drop and I expect that when the new discs come out the regular ones will drop even more. And the quality thru the OPPO swings the decision for me of whether I want to pay the price they will ask for the new HD discs or be able to build a really nice collection; at 5 or more discs for the price of 1? Of course the price of the new discs is an unknown at this point but I would think they would ask at least the same price they do for a first release disc at present, and then there is the cost of the player. Not that I wouldn't adopt eventually, like after the price for the HD discs and players becomes reasonable.

There's a short article in Newsweek (June 20 page 6) on how Warner Bros are experimenting with releasing dvds in China. They're releasing US quality dvds of first run movies on same day the movies are released in theaters here in hopes of beating the bootleggers to the punch. Price? $2.75 for the real deal not a dual layer disc shrunk to a single layer disc. As for RCE OPPO's are easily made region free first models came region free new models need a hack or so I've read.
