Another difference that is important to some is speed. My understanding is that the 790 has a quad core processor. I imagine it would/should be faster than some other decks at loading discs.

yeah, but that tiny differences matter if you are really serious about video. S790 has a higher grade processor and better processing algorithms than 390, of course there will be differences, even if they are tiny by your measure, but there will be differences, that's for sure.

(PS, regarding the "washed out colours": I didn't say they're washed out, it's just that the colours 790 puts out compared to N590 are punchier, brighter. N590 by al means doesn't have washed out colours.).

Most differences would be calibrated out by anyone hardcore enough to own a colorimeter.

By the way Panasonic's "super resolution" doesn't affect Blu-ray playback but it does work on DVDs so it is safe to leave on +1 or so.
