It really won't impact them any more than a non-modded player. Last year I sent my solid state modded BDP-83 into Oppo as the drawer was sticking. It was a known issue. I also had to send my UDP-203 in as it froze after an update. They covered shipping both ways on the 203 and since the 83 was out of warranty, I paid for shipping one way (and nothing else). I got the players back promptly. Oppo customer service is wonderful. When I called them, they asked me about the mod (e.g. whether it is solid state or tube). So they are familiar with them.
