After putting my new RP-82 through its paces in the last couple of days, the resulting feeling was one of utter disappointment. The Pana player has the worst handling of non-anamorphic material from a unit since the Clinton regime left office. Their idea of handling 4:3 material on 16x9 sets that lock into full mode is switching the player into interlaced and then using your TV's aspect ratio settings. The Pana's zoom function doesn't even work on non-anamorphic discs, again forcing you to rely on your tv's aspect ratio settings. By dumb luck, while browsing around at Best Buy during my lunch break, I came across the brand new Toshiba 4800 on sale for $199, $179 after my 10% Best Buy card discount. The impulse buyer within got the better of me and just this once, I'm glad that it did. Out of nowhere, amidst all of the moanings of the chroma bug, this one is a keeper my friends. The picture quality is excellent, chroma bug seems to have been squashed (never bugged me that bad in the first place), handling of non-anamorphic stuff is top notch, and the unit actually scales in progressive mode! After turning on progressive scan and setting up the 4800's progressive 4:3 output to 4:3 rather than full, scaling is activated by pressing the zoom button. The onscreen display actually says enlarge when this mode is activated. How do I know that this isn't just zooming the picture to fit the screen? My 40X81 doesn't lock into full mode with progressive material so while viewing the scaled picture in the TV's 4:3 normal mode, the frame is stretched vertically as all anamorphic material would appear. For those of us who don't have the greenage to drop $500 on the RP-91, we finally have another choice. Thank you Toshiba!
