Those are all valid points, but you could certainly make the same argument as to why one should not buy the Sammy DLP in the first place -- it is far from a perfect TV (lack of discrete codes, one DVI input, poor QC on the lamps, etc.), but we all must have been willing to overlook its problems in exchange for the amazing picture. I'm just saying if you want the best DVD PQ today, why not spring for a DVI DVD player?
I have the Sammy 931 DVD player, and while it is certainly flawed in the areas you mention (it also has one of the longest response times of any player I've ever seen); nonetheless, I'm willing to overlook these deficiencies to be able to enjoy the amazing PQ today.
Besides, for $60, Ultimate Electronics offers a service whereby I can exchange the Sammy 931 for a better player in 2 years with full credit for the $299 purchase price. By then, Ultimate Electronics will hopefully still be in business and someone will have perfected a DVI DVD player.
