I will be buying a Panasonic plasma 50" in the near future.
Most important considerations for me:
1) Upscaling quality
2) The ability to play high def (ie. MPEG-4) video from a USB stick or SD card (I download a lot of stuff)
3) wifi would be nice but not required as I could always use a nridge or a power line adaptor.
I obviously don't want to spend tons of money so I'm leaning towards the 1600 but am not sure if it'll play my video content, which is pretty much a deal breaker for me. Any advice?
Well, I had that same decision to make about a month ago and because of Cnet indicating shorter disc loading times I went for Samsung.
Everything was fine until I used the Bonusview feature on a Matrix BD. When activated it was fine, the small video window appeared with commentaries; but when I rewinded some seconds back, playback became jumpy, so much that even turning the feature off kept the movie jumping.
Tried this with other BDs and same thing and this gave me a bad feeling. It's a brand new player with a good review, I did the firmware updates with the internet connection, and then that happens.
I don't even wanna try another unit, I'm changing it tomorrow for the Panny which is the more experienced brand.
