If you search this forum you'll notice the panasonic DVD-RP82 is very well liked. Purchased the Sony NS715P online but resold it a week later when i heard all the good things people here where saying about the panasonic and denon dvd players.
Alot of the decision depends on how nice of a tv you have.
The Sony DVD players don't use the better rated de-interlacing chips and they also exhibit the "chroma" bug. Don't believe that everything Sony makes is GOLD. Their quality control has diminished over the years. Try a Panasonic or Denon - you can't go wrong with those models, much more bang for the buck!
