Received a Yamaha BD-S667 instead of a BD-S677. Should I keep it?
This has to do with the chipset(s) between the two players. Features aside.
I ordered a refurbished 677, but was sent a older 667 which is discontinued by mistake. I have the option of keeping it. The 667 came out in 2010 and the 677 in 2012, but is still current. I don't care about 3D that the 677 has, I do like the flexibility of component outs of the 667 and Netflix that the newer (current) one does not have.
My concern is the ability to handle problem discs that have a tendency to stutter, skip, freeze or completely lockup the player that I have been reading about with many players. Features aside, anyone who owns either have any comment either from 1st (or 2nd) hand experience can shed some light here.
Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
