The 200 & REON playback of SD DVD is = in quality, just not = in style/look.
The reviews have the REON w/a sharper/stronger PQ & the 200 w/a smoother/softer PQ.
So its a personal and/or system/source choice between the two.
I prefer softer, can you tell, cause to me its more film-like.
However, those that wish their, especial digital, displays too show every hard edge go REON.
Or, if one had a 'softer' , especially analog/rear projection, display the REON may bring up detail.
I'm a plasma fan, so the 200 takes the digital edge off, for me anyway.
Good luck & welcome to combo land!
