"Outstanding Picture and Reliability"4.5 starson by cyberfly77
Pros: Awesome Picture and sound, Rock solid playback
Cons: This model seams to be a bit slower than other models but its worth it for its Reliability.
Summary: I originally purchased the Samsung because I thought it was the best but then it would hang in the middle of the movie occasionally then I returned it for the Sony and I liked it ok until my neighbor got a Panasonic and we checked it out with the movie UP, then we took my sony and played the same movie and it wasn't as clear or vivid in color. It was enough difference for me to return it and get the Panasonic and I like the features on it much better, like having a SD card slot for viewing pictures of our kids. I really love this unit the best.
I dont think cnet has rated this unit correctly because it should be at least a 4 or better.
