Review: 4-star DVD Player

Oppo DV-981HD Universal DVD Player with HDMI, 1080p Up-Converting, DivX & SACD

Sleek and slick, March 29, 2008

The Oppo does all that I was led to believe it would. It makes older DVDs look sharp and newer DVDs look near-HD on my Panasonic 65-inch plasma. Very smart and easy to use. With the future of DVDs uncertain (will all movies be digital files on a hard drive soon?), I saw no logic in paying top dollar for HD-DVDs or re-purchasing my collection of 300-plus DVDs in some other format. So the Oppo figures to give me many years of enjoyment with the standard DVDs I already have.
