I really think people are putting too much stock in the secrets shootouts, it seems to me that the shootout determines the quality of the player by doing a bunch of de-interlacing tests. For someone like me who basically watches movies, most players perform fine with 3:2 pulldown. And as for the chroma bug, I think that too is overhyped....Last week I went to future shop and they happened to get shipment on one rp-82 and I was the lucky guy who got it. I'm not that impressed with it! It's loud, the picture is good, but not great....the remote is garbage and the build quality is sub par. Secrets should include measurements of the noise of the dvd transport as well as measurements of audio jitter, those two factors could better help me pick a good player. But for now, i can't justify the $400 Canadian I paid for this player, I'm hoping to get a good quality movie player....that's all I want, when will such a product be available??????
