I found it to handle the tests very well except for the Chroma Zone plate. It had issues with all modes except "Soft", which seemed to make it look mostly normal. Not sure if the panny is doing some kind of color sharpening or what would cause that. Ill be using this as my primary for awhile and setting the 6200 to the side so I can see how it performs with movies over a few weeks.
So far, it booted up quickly and downloaded FW version 1.30. I like the look better than the Sony, I like the blue light but you can turn it off, anyone asking about the ad banner, it can be turned off. I also still prefer panny menus over the sony XMB.
From disc tray going in until menu is loaded. Speeds for Panny are just fine, it was only really slower on Star Trek, but there are a lot of skips that require a button push to get to the main menu, and the Sony just seems to do it a little faster. Menu speeds are quick, so I do not see any speed on this player as an issue, as with the last 3 generations of players.
