    As I have been reading these forums I have many good things about both companies. Is there any real difference in the picute and sound quality of their Progressive DVD players? And if so, what models will perform better.

    I just bought my first HDTV and am looking to buy a new DVD player and any help will be greatly appreciated!

    The Panasonic's (RP82, RP-62 and CP-72) have the very good Faroudja chipset. I don't think I've seen or heard anyone unhappy with the picture quality of those players. There's nothing wrong with the Toshiba's, the 4700/4800 has a nice picture as well. The sound should all be handled by your receiver so I don't think you'll notice a different between the two brands unless you use the analog connections.

    Is there a big difference in video between RP 82 & 62?

    The reason I ask this is because I can pick up RP62 or Toshiba for about $115 new.

    I have the Toshiba DVD player you are talking about hooked up via component cables to a Samsung HDTV and I think the picture is outstanding. I think both Toshiba and Panasonic make quality DVD players so if you can get a good deal on either one, then the choice is already made...
