Despite the lower rating, the 2200 is a much better player. What display? The early 910s had problems with Sony TVs, not sure if they still do, but I had to return mine because it flickered all the time in progressive.
Why not go on Ebay and get one of those much ballyhooed Panasonic players like the RP-82, the Xp-30 or whatever the heck's it called? You know, the Panny units everyone's always praising to the 4 winds?
Or, you could wait for the new Panny s97. IF it lives up its pedigree, this might really be a hot number under the $300 price tag.
