Basically, what the sybject says. I have a Malata 996 model that has been having some serious freezing issues after my latest relocation and need to upgrade ASAP. I don't really care too much about region free/PAL->NTSC conversion. I just want a player that can do a high quality job zooming the picture out and centering it correctly on a non-ISF calibrated set (i.e. I need to get rid of the overscan!). mike.
