I'm looking at buying the Denon 2910 (to partner a NEC VR5 via DVI) and after searching through the forum looking at 2910 (and general Denon posts), it seems these players attract a lot of negative comments. What I can't determine is whether this is a minority group of unlucky individuals that have malfunctioning players or whether these problems are indicative of the current range of Denon machines as a whole? For instance, the macroblocking issues that are discussed - how bad is this problem? Has it been (or will it be) fixed by firmware updates?? The 2910 appears to have been criticised for not being able to play all discs - is this a widespead problem as well??? It's frustrating because I need a player and my budget (~£400/500) means that the 2910 seems to be the best "on paper". My only other alternative is the Panasonic S97EBS which is a fair bit cheaper and with it's own set of issues. I just wondered if any HAPPY 2910 owners could step forward or at least some more balanced views of the player so that I can make a reasonably informed purchasing decision. Thanks in advance!
