    I got it for Christmas.........and sent it back. Takes too long to change and name cd's...costs too much, seemed a little cheap. I didn't use it w/ progressive scan, so I can't comment on the picture w/ PS, but it did seem to have a little sharper picture through my s-video. I'd of kept it if it was about $800 dollars less and if I had a HDTV. There's alot more I can do w/ the $1,500 bucks.

    Andrew,

    It's interesting to read your post. I just finally got to see this player in action (at my local dealer showroom, that is) yesterday. I have to say, the progressive-scan picture quality is excellent. But I too felt the same way otherwise about the player. I'm not sure I'd spend $1500 on it either - the build quality did seem subpar for $1500. The door was not really stable and it is a very slow player. Very bulky as well.
