While I completely agree that any BD, especially the really popular titles like POTC, should perform superbly on any BD player and that a 2nd generation player like the S300 should handle it all flawlessly, that does not change the fact that many people have reportly trouble loading titles like POTC. The samsung 1200, and now the s300 as well. Both of these may be upgradable to fix this problem, I don't know.
We are saying the same thing. All BD titles should run great on ALL BD players, especially 2nd Generation players. There is literally no valid excuse for this to be a non-issue. Is it because the specification isn't finalized? Is it because all that BD-J really doesn't work well? Is it because the mfgs and the studios don't communicate well?
Movies produced today should be supported by players mfg'd today PERIOD. This shouldn't have to be said, it is what makes sense.
Unfortunately, these kinds of problems are all over CE these days. From BD players with BD-J problems, to HDDVD players having problems with some disks after frequent use, to AVR equipment described one way but really not doing what their own manuals say, heck even what their own tech support says.
Meanwhile, they are all lined up to take our money.
