If you don't need progressive scan the 763SA looks damn good to me, I just can't find a review, or 100% definite multiregion info.

Good point. reviews are hard to come by on all 3 players i mentioned .Progressive scan is not an issue at the minute but would like to future proof myself for at least another 2-3 years if possible.
With that in mind would the 963sa be a better option. Any info would help plus feedback if anyone has the philips 963sa already and give me the lowdown on this seemingly good player.

Way I look at is is you're paying £140 for the 763 vs £300ish for the 963sa - in a couple of years I'd wager that players will have moved on and, as is the case now compared to three years ago, will offer features that used to be considered "premium".

Maybe progressive scan will be one of them, maybe it won't, but I wouldn't spend the extra right now on the 963 unless you *really* think you need it - I'd go for the cheaper player and buy something in three years as it'll probably cost less anyway.

That'd be my thinking, but I can't talk as I've been p**sing about for a couple of months now and still can't decide what to buy :)

Good points.With that in mind would the middle ground of maybe purchasing the toshiba 520e (at said price above) be the better option ,although i'm loathe to split up my A/V kit with a different brand.
