So Amazon "lost" the first PS4 (the mind boggles) and I've now received a replacement which I've not yet opened.

On the Oppo front, it turns out that this is a known issue with the drive and keeping a disc inside it makes the problem go away. I finally managed to open the drive and stick a disc inside. All seems well. But... Oppo in the States is going to try and send me "a tray eject kit which may be used to resolve [my] issue". Amazing support for a machine which was bought in 2009. I note use of the word "try" though!

Do I send the PS4 back?

The RMA period for Amazon receiving the goods back is three months, I think: it was when I returned a Kindle. Initiate the process and just sit on the unopened box until the Oppo issue is resolved one way or the other. Only then cancel the return if you need to.

Edit: Unless, of course, you're trying to justify to yourself the retention something as time-wasting and fun frivolous as a gaming machine. Been there myself with the XBox X, which I am now selling (having replaced it with the 203).

Good plan. I'm thinking of keeping it to replace the stupidly cheap (£50) Philips player we have in our living room. My daughter will be over the moon that she can play Minecraft... laugh
