I got an open box RP82 from OneCall delivered on Wednesday. My unit was brand new but had a torn box. The unit inside was untouched and all accessories were in factory sealed packages. My unit was brand new but could not be sold as new because of the damaged box. Since I purchased an RP62 on Monday I was already familiar with the set up. After hooking it up set up only took moments. First impressions between the RP62 and RP82. I personally find the brushed silver faceplate on the RP62 to be better looking then the RP82's mirrored face plate. Other then that they are much the same looking unit. If I was a rep from Panasonic I would have these faceplate's swapped. Since I just received SIGNS I used this movie as reference. The transfer is not the best but the movie is loaded with enough information to keep multiple viewings enjoyable. I first watched it on the RP62 and found the picture to be very good. I did not notice any Chroma Bug unlike my Toshiba SD-K710 (SD3800) but I could still see some minor artifacts. Today I screened SIGNS again this time using the RP82. Holly MOLLY...you people were not kidding. I found the colors more vibrant and the picture to be artifact free. Maybe a slight level of grain that is part of the picture but that is it. It is also the first DVD player I have had that does not have that plastic look to the picture. The picture is also very 3D looking. I could not see any ringing with any colors at all on this player. The picture is absolutly stunning. Because of the picture was so clean the little details really stood out. Overall I am very impressed with the RP82. I sure hope the new RP85 has the same video processing as the RP82. Others deserve the great picture this unit puts out.
