I'm using the BDP-320 with a PDP-5020FD. This is my first BDP.
I'm not sure if it is amazing, but my 320 and 5020 play very well together. I have not noticed any handshake issues with the two connected via HDMI. I haven't seen any delays, video blanking or strange images as I've seen on other set-ups.
The Kuro link took care of all the initial settings except Source Direct. The Kuro's deinterlacing is better than the 320 so Source Direct is nice to have.
I did have to readjust the picture settings on the 5020, but this was expected.
I really like the HDMI control. It is great to hit play on the 320 and have the TV turn and the correct input set. It can all be done from the front panel, so no remotes or family training required.
