Anybody got any experience,good or bad, with the 850 Sony?
Sorry for the late reply, I had some problems registering.
I have had the sony 850 for some time now. My first impressions was that the picture was superior to the pioneer box it replaced, also the lip synch problems went away.
The menu system can sometimes pick info up from discs but if it does you can not edit this. A shame because my import of trainspotting has Danny Boyle embedded as the title.
I got mine from Linkonline and it came chipped, I am not sure but I think disc 2 of R2 Gladiator may not play, that appears to be the only one so far.
I would like to upgrade to the 860 machine (300 discs) but am behaving myself at the moment.
I like the machine but the jog-shuttle dial on the remote is annoyingly imprecise to use, so if you do a lot of trick-play you may find it irritating.
