Hello! A few comments on the performance, if I may:
Like most people in this forum, I believe, I look for superb picture quality and hi-fi multi-channel audio more than performance on loading discs or layer change breaks. On the other hand, I also believe that current technology should be enough to serve us much better in terms of performance. Now, thinking out of the box, for most users out there, especially those who are very satisfied with SD DivX and two-channel mp3 audio, it's hard to understand how we can pay $300 for a player that takes 1 minute to load a disc and stumps for 2 seconds while changing layers, and also needs a firmware upgrade every other month to keep up with the newest titles. I think we need better usability if we want to reach real mass production and make the prices drop.
