I'm considering upgrading from my 59 Elite which I just bought this past Spring. Possibly moving that to my bedroom and the new 59-AVi to the home theater. The only thing is, I'm going to have to order it online with a chipset hack for region-free mod. I wonder how long it will take for the code free e-tailer sites to get these units in from the distributors and what they will charge for them modded? I'm most anxious to hear how this new unit handles layer changes which is currently my biggest complaint with the 59-AVi. If this aspect hasn't been improved upon with the new model, than I'm going to save my money. Anyways, I'm curious to hear if anybody's seen this thing in action and how it fares performance wise to the previous 59 model and if the improvements are enough to justify an upgrade?
