    Where oh where can one get the Panasonic S97 in the UK? It is not listed on the Panasonic UK home page. Is it discontinued, not available or what?

    I've just taken delivery of what is probably the last S97 in London after a forum member helped me out with finding one.
    In fact I posted more or less the exact same thread about 5 days ago, do a search.

    It is a great player, great image quality, good support from Panasonic (firmware updates), all round top machine.
    Not sure why Panasonic UK stopped stocking the unit, they must be crazy, the rest of Europe and the US still stock it, why not the UK?

    Ive heard its because Panasonic UK concentrate on the DVD recorder market more, though what that has to do with it in this situation I have no idea. :confused:
