"A must have player!"4.5 starson by jeroque
Pros: Much better picture & improved loading time.
Cons: Still unable to compete w/ HD-DVD pricing.
Summary: I hesitated to replace my PS3 game console for a few months to wait for this stand alone dvd player...the wait was well worth it. This player has a better picture quality than my PS3 and bitstream Dolby True HD and DTS-HD MA to my Onkyo 605. The front display of the 605 now shows these 2 audio soundtracks...the sound is amazing better than the LPCM 5.1. I have not dwell yet into the BR profile 1.1 yet but will update this opinion.
I just did not like the LED display of this player...sort of old looking. The price of this player is still unable to compete with HD-DVD agressive pricing. The player maybe one of the best blu-ray player out there as of this time in my opinion with regards to features and pricing. You will not regret buying this blu-ray player.
