Just received mine the other day, and figured I had to join to discuss it
I've mostly watched DVDs on it so far, and can't say I'm blown away by the upscaling. But then again, the Pioneer DVD player I had before was pretty much as good as they come with regards to upscaling.
I watched The Shawshank Redemption (BD) on it yesterday and instantly noticed a problem with their thin-striped shirts (of all things...). It seemed to create a considerable flicker (or possibly light fluctuation) on their shirts in scenes with little movement. I've only ever seen this on TV before, when people wear shirts with thin high-contrast vertical stripes. Always thought it was a PAL problem, but since I watched the movie in 24p/Hz/FPS mode, I'm not so sure anymore. Anyone else seen this movie on it?
In other news:
disappointed with the Youtube implementation. And sadly, this is something that's overlooked by every single review out there. How can Panasonic think that people who would "sacrifice" the low cost and super-high availability of DVD to buy a Bluray, who's advantage is only
the increased picture- and sound quality, would be satisfied with watching Youtube videos in f***ing 320p resolution??
It's completely beyond me.
