Yeah, I bought my first (only!) AV receiver from them, as well as my macro lens. No problems at all.

Nick, I just checked out their site. They are having a Chirstmas sale on, among other things, Panasonic's replacement brushes for their Oral Irrigator #EWDJ10 @ $10 ea. You could buy 5.

OK. So now that I am seeing the drywall quotes for my basement, I probably should get something besides an Oppo 93 player and try to use my $50 credit at OneCall.com for a blu-ray player from there.

Any suggestions one which player? Looks like they carry 24 different models.

Some are more than the Oppo, so that would be dumb. Others get bad reviews I am sure (like the Onkyo seems to be crap. I checked it out since I just bought an Onkyo receiver)...

Price list as of this posting time:

Nick, I myself wouldn't consider any single-disc player for general music/movie use, but if you just want a player for movies, there wouldn't appear to be a good reason not to just go with the least expensive LG.

Well there is one reason, depending on your sourcing habits and legal/moral obligations. JohnK is in the US where the rules are stricter but in Canada, we still have no definitive laws against copying or sharing "digital" media. However, that is likely to change soon as our gov. has some bills in the works.

That being said.....
If you play to buy a device that can also receive streaming content, then you may want to check out the latest list of devices to avoid that have incorporated Cinavia. That would, of course, be any Sony product (since they invented it) but there are some others as well including several LGs. Wiki keeps s list under the topic "Cinavia".

If you only watch from the original media, then this should not be a concern.

I don't know what Cinavia is (???), but I have a Sony with wireless capability and I don't have any problems streaming stuff. It's the Sony BPD-S580. Reviews said the menus were slow, but in my experience, they were faster than the Panasonic menus. Panasonic had a better interface for entering keyboard data than Sony though, especially when using Pandora. I've gone through 3 Panasonic BRD players in 4 years. This is my first Sony, so I don't know how it's drive mechanism, etc, will last yet. I've had a lot of problems with Panasonics.

Panasonic 30 (oldest) model was the best, but no wireless. Panasonic 60 model was the worst. I had 2 of them, traded one in with a problem, then the 2nd one I got developed that same problem. It would occasionally go back to the units original menu for a second or 2 then start playing the movie where it left off of. Panasonic 210 model was my first wireless. The first thing to go wrong was the ability to wave your hand over the top to open/close door would only work when it wanted to. Then the drive mechanism started to really slow down. Had to keep jabbing the open/close button to get it to work properly.

Cinavia is Sony's newest form of copy protection. If you try to watch a Cinavia protected movie on anything but a legit copy of the media, on a player that has this built in, you will eventually see an error message appear that "you don't own this movie......" and the audio will shut down.

They let you watch just enough of the movie to wet your appetite. I guess they believe that by letting you watch, n minutes, you will be so engrossed that you will have to go out an by a legit copy.

The code it monitors for this is built into the audio tracks and so far it has been handily surviving any attempts by hackers to invent a convenient way around it. Last I read (which was a good while ago), the only way to beat it is to keep changing your devices time clock to be nn minutes into the future but you have to do it every time the error comes up.
