    Does anyone have anything good or bad to comment about this dvd player with HDMI feature? One again I am torn between this and a cheaper dvd player with HDMI feature ie a Samsung, viewing will be via a 50inch Sony 3lcd rr proj tv.

    Do a search on the forum, Betty, there are tons of threads about this player. I'd recommend it (if you can find it -- apparently it's been discontinued in the UK).

    As you'll see from my signature, I have one of these and am delighted with it. However, I have no experience with the Samsung and therefore cannot offer you any advice or comparisons between the two.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    p.s. You'll find it difficult to source an S97 in the UK now as it has been discontinued in this country for quite some time.

    The Panny was a much better machine than the Samsung 950.
