    Can any owners of the Denon 910 DVD player please share your opinion of it? It got a pretty good review at Hometheaterhifi.com, score of 85. Thanks.

    Its a pretty basic player. Not too bad picture quality - but its build quality and feature set are incredibly lacking.

    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.

    I'm thinking of buying a 910 refurbished for my X1 projector, but I'm getting differing opinions.

    ^^ You can do better. Much better.

    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.

    Thanks Eric, but I'm not going to go to Ebay and get ripped off.

    If you know what you're looking for, go to a good seller, and know in advance what fair price ranges are, you'll be just fine. [​IMG]

    I've got a 910, got it refurbed as a temporary player until I upgrade to something with SACD and DVD-A. I don't have any complaints so far, I've had it for about 6 months.

    Blaine, it doesn't sound like you're crazy about it. How's the picture quality, etc? Thanks.
