Am I being irrational or should I really be ticked?
All the current BD players have deficiencies. I bought the 1200 as a player that would get me through the end of the year, for its good SD DVD playback, and to paly BD on my RS1 now.
It was either that or use my 5 year old DVD player and wait till end of year for a BD player with most of the features one wants. I knew it had drawbacks like lack of 7.1, possibly no upgrade to TrueHD etc.
