I am going to jump on the Blu Ray Wagon - probably on Friday. I started out thinking I was going to get the Oppo - but have read several reviews on the LG BD390. After skimming 126 pages over on AVS, I posted a question and we shall see what type response comes in. I figure I can get the LG at about half or less the Oppo. I don't know if Oppo discounts on Black Friday or not.

Any thoughts on the LG?

Well......I have not agonized over the Blu Ray decision as much as I did the Axiom decision - but I have read as many reviews on the Oppo and LG as I can find. Spent waaayy too much time on the respective AVS threads. Does anyone here have the Oppo? That is my current leaning. There are not many negative comments/posts on the Oppo and most, if not all of the reviews are raves.

Have you read over this thread:
http://www.axiomaudio.com/boards/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=280127

It's basically just me saying why I wouldn't buy an Oppo. A little counter-point to the endless glowing reviews which is seems to receive. But it comes down to: the Oppo isn't perfect, the PS3 Slim isn't either, but it's closer, and costs $200 less.

Yes, I have been closely reading that thread and, let me say I am glad to have a tech savy person like you offering the counter points. I read each of your posts carefully. There are 2 or 3 points that have me leaning towards the Oppo - first and foremost is the upscaling of standard DVD's. I am not sure how much better "better" is - and no good way to compare since you can't see an Oppo anywhere. But it gives me pause. Second, I like the idea of good customer service that they are known for. Third.....and I saw that you have a girlfriend that isn't that big on your system..... buying another gaming system (I have the 360) is a much tougher sale than a plain Blu Ray.

I am hiding my "man card" in advance cuz I know somebody on here will demand revocation.

Don't worry about the revocation of your "man card" because you're not getting a second gaming console... you might have to give up your "teen card" though... ;\)

Also, don't forget that the Oppo makes a much better conversation piece. "I have a Oppo at home!" "Is it house trained?" "I have a OPPO, not a HIPPO!". Try to do the same with a PS3...
