I'm shopping for my first dvd player and I've been reading the posts on here for a few weeks (first post!). I think I've narrowed it down to either the Sony DVP-NS315/B or the Panasonic RP-82 (as it is highly recommended here), but any other suggestions would be welcome. I just bought a standard JVC 27" TV (with 3 line digital comb filter and component inputs) in the $300 range to replace my Zenith 19" tv that is 19 years old, so I'm not on the leading edge as far as technology goes, and I don't expect to get an HDTV for a long time. As well as watching dvd movies, I'll also be watching sci-fi tv shows on dvd such as star trek, stargate, etc. that are video based, so I will be viewing a fair amount of video dvds with space ships on a field of stars. I only need an interlaced dvd player for my set up, and if I have understood the posts correctly, the chroma bug effects progressive scan dvd players, but a few posts have also mentioned a flicker bug in the less expensive Panasonic dvd players that concerns me watching video based dvds. I'm wondering if I would see much difference on my very basic system between a name brand dvd player in the $100-130 range and a higher level progressive dvd player in the $170-230 range. There is about a $100 price difference between the models I listed, and I'd just as soon save the money if I wouldn't gain anything by going to a more expensive dvd player. I also haven't found much info on the Sony NS-315. If the consensus is to go with the cheaper player, does anyone have any comments on this model or could they recommend another one?
