Oh memories. The Superblu was my first ever blu ray player. Went with it because I wasn't sure which direction to invest in the format war.

It is still being used to this day, but it is no longer super nor does it play blu. A while back it lost the ability to play either format of HD, but DVD's continued to play flawlessly, so I gave it to my in laws since they were only looking for a DVD player for their bedroom.

Mine still plays every BD I throw at it, but I haven't played one in the bedroom since Christmas.

I would get the Sony 590. I use the cost club version with a slightly different model number (BX59 I think.)

Or the 790, I guess if you can find it on sale or something.

I am thinking of getting the S590 as a back-up player just in case my S790 dies

Instead of wasting money buying back-up players, just buy one good quality blu-ray player, that's going to last a long time. You may pay a little more, but it'll be worth it in a long run. At least you don't have to worry about the blu-ray player breaking down, or stop working altogether anytime soon... A person will be spending 3 times the amount of money buying replacements, than buying one halfway decent player. Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony are deliberately building their blu-ray players, using low quality materials, to keep the consumers to repeatedly buy them. Have you checked out the Oppo 103? It's been receiving 5 star reviews from all the critics and consumers.

I agree with your statement.

It is time for a new upgraded player

I would like another Sony player, I am thinking of picking up either the S590 or S790 but I am leaning to the S790 due to better build and 4K remastering

To anybody who has the S790, how do you like the player?

Thank you for your replies!
Sadface. Maybe go multi-region this time?

I just got the S570, the first thing I did was put in Avril concert DVD and I have to say the DVD up scaling is very out of this world! Avril's face is clear and detailed, I do not think I have noticed her red eyeshadow on my 1000ES but maybe I am blind or something! I am going to pop in a Blu-ray soon

So far I am loving this player and I think it is much better than the 1000ES

My Sony isoniazid the blink and cannot decide from disc to disc if it wants to read the disc or not. It will be replaced with a 103, though the wife will be pissed when she finds out how much it costs.

I sure am glad I have the PS3 s my backup, but what I would get for it would nearly put me over the top for the Oppo.

Also thought about going to Costco and spending $100 bucks on a player, but will leave that in the Oppo account instead.

sorry to hear your player broke, i have the 1000ES in my bedroom and still plays everything i throw at it. I got it about 3 years ago from Best Buy for $40 on clearance (and the box was open so my boss hooked me up) while i still worked there.
I'd love to own an Oppo but until i get a 3D/4K TV the 1000es will have to get it done

I bought the oppo 103 a couple weeks ago and is by far the best player i have owned. I had a question about setting it up so i could have 3d on a older avr that isnt 3d ready and called them up and they walked me through it so they have great customer support as well. Def check them out.
