I've been scouring this forum for ideas on a new DVD player. I currently own a Panasonic A110, which as many of you know has significant pixellization (and other) problems I've suffered through for many years. I didn't get notification of the class action settlement, so the only recourse I have to protest Panasonic (since, when these problems started 366 days after I bought it, I got no help from Panasonic whatsoever) is to not buy their products anymore. Unfortunately, it seems that the best DVD player for the price and picture quality is the Panasonic RP82. It has all the features I'm looking for: quality MPEG decoding, a high quality de-interlacing chip (Faroujda), and excellent progressive scan performance. I don't need any DVD audio, multi-disk changers, or recording capability. I just want really good video performance for under $300. Is there any other brand out there which has similar (or better) video performance in this price range? Or should I swallow my pride and give Panny my hard earned $? Or, should I wait a bit for other brands (and/or technology) to catch up? My A110 is tolerable, and I don't have an HDTV yet. Your expertise and experience would be greatly appreciated.
