It seemed a tad cheaply made (yes by all standards compared to the XA1 it is cheaply made)
Granted with the XA1 I only get 1080i and use it on a full 1080p TV.
The difference between 1080i/1080p is so little it really does not matter.
I will say for SD viewing, the Samsung player is better (much better than the A2, and a tad better than the XA1)
The main thing I see with the REON chip in the Samsung is better contrast.
Although, for the price difference if I did not already have the XA1, I would jump all over that A2.
Actually I am still considering it, for another room. (heck, the 8 movies normally would cost almost more than the player)
Average movie cost at 19.95 x 8 = 159.60 in free movies
