"The Cnet reviewer is incorect on about TrueHD"4.5 starson by extirpator
Pros: Price is good for a dedicated player, Blu-ray has the largest selection of movies, Blockbuster just went Blu-ray exclusive in 1400+ stores.
Cons: PS3 is a better bang for your buck as you can still get the 20GB version at some places for the same price, and it supports HDMI1.3, can play games, and work as a media hub.
Summary: So, a quick look at the manual for this unit reveals that indeed it DOES support TrueHD sound. I'm puzzled how the reviewer got this important feature wrong... Perhaps they should RTFM before the make inaccurate claims. The manual is available at http://www.docs.sony.com/release/BDPS300.pdf page 48 shows TrueHD as a supported 5.1 channel PCM output on BD-ROM.
