Of course I would like a progressive scan player and I prefer a single disk loader. Don't care what brand it is but I would love to hear everyone's opinion as i'm about to take delivery on my first HDTV and now i'm about to buy my first progressive DVD player. Thanks for input. Posted Image

Daniel, take a look at the Panasonic DVD-S55S and 'F85. The 'S55S is a $130 single-disc player, while the 'F85 is a $150 five-disc changer. Both players do progressive scan and DVD-Audio and appear solid for the money. For more information, go to www.crutchfield.com . I've also seen the 'F85 at Circuit City. The build quality is excellent for $150.

Daniel,

Which HDTV did you get? Do you have lots of non-16x9 DVDs?

The answers to these questions may factor into what you should get although $150 is a bit limiting if you need to scale non-16x9 DVDs for a large display.

I'm having a Sony Wega 32" HS500 on June 2nd. Posted Image I can't hardly contain myself just thinking about it! Posted Image

No, I don't own that many DVDs that are non 16:9. I don't own any tv shows on dvd and only a couple movies that I can think of are 4:3. Happy Gilmore is 4:3 and Iron Eagle non-anamorphic letterboxed. Posted Image

Well, then you're probably ok w/ the cheap new Panny players as suggested by Keith.
