    I've had a 3750 for about a month now and the layer change seems slower than other players I've had. Something like a good second and a half or so.

    My previous player was a SD-5109 and it seemed faster. But, the 3750 is noticably sharper.

    I'm wondering what other 3750 owners have experienced.

    Mine completely locked up on the layer change. Had to actually power off the player before being able to continue. Returned it last week. Picture was ok, I thought it was a little soft.

    I've had one for around a month and have noticed it is a bit slow. Not a major factor for me considering the low price of the unit, but I do wish it was faster.

    Charles,

    Most DVDs these days have two layers on a side and when the player switches layers during a movie there is a slight pause.
