Other than the LFE bug through HDMI, and no 1.1 and no DTS-HD MA; it is a solid player. So if you can live with the things I just mentioned and don't have one of the new 1.3 HDMI recievers, I wouldn't worry about it. I still have mine and am still very impressed with it. It is what a 1st gen player should be. Of course, I wanted DTS-HD MA so I invested in the 30 and got a new AVR to go along with it.
