What is the big deal about the S97 anyway... ?? What does it do better than the S77?? Is it just potentially useless features here and there?



Is it worth spending 60 - 100 dollars more on an S97?

I don't own either but after reading about both, I believe the S97 is better built and offers better performance. It is worth the extra money, the market usually is correct. The S97 is a big seller and difficult to find at the current price.

I was worth it for me. My S97 540 firmware unit will play PAL discs natively. My Optoma PJ accepts PAL or NTSC. This is good, because converting PAL-NTSC introduces artifacts & speeds up the play. I also hacked my S97 for regionfree with a chipped remote control. It is the ultimate regionfree player IMO. The current S97 & S77 won't play PAL.
