I have done a search, but thought it worth asking again as the price difference has changed. I can get the 303 for £280 inc vat and multiregion or the s550 for £350 + £40 to make it multi region. I can get the sony for that price because of the sony offer on tv's ie the fs66. Either £100 off any sony product or a free dvd player. So if I go for the pioneer, i can also get a free dvd player to sell/give away!
