I'm in the market to replace my old Panny A-120U player that will only play DVD-R. I'd like one that is known for playing DVD+-R and DVD+-RW. I'm not worried about region hacks and things like that. I'd also like to know if this "3:2 pulldown" stuff should be a neccessity? I'm an admitted newbie but I do know that I need a progressive scan player if I want to take advantage of my new HDTV. I've been putting old home movies onto DVD so that is the reason for wanting good support for recordable DVD's. I'd like to minimize my cost as much as possible so I was looking at places like Sears and Wal Mart at the Panasonic S35, Philips 726, Pioneer DV-260, etc. The Philips is the only one that actually states 3:2 pulldown, but the pioneer states "2:3 progressive scan" which I'm not sure is the same thing. The panasonic doesn't say anything about that. I guess I could just buy one at a time and see if they play my disks. If not then take them back. Any suggestions?
