    I've seen that the fantastic Sony NS900 DVD Player is to be replaced by the DVP-NS905. However, does anyone happen to know if this will be available in Black (to match the rest of my kit)?

    I've only seen pictures and specs that list Silver :mad:

    Cheers

    Almost certainly. Probably cheaper too. They always show silver stuff on promo material.

    Hello

    I don't think the UK version will have this feature enabled (much like the DVP-NS900!)

    I don't have a prog. scan capable display device so it doesn't bother me.

    Cheers

    I think that the UK 900 could not do Progressive Scan, but the USA version could.

    Hello

    No idea!!!!

    The only way I know for sure to get Prog. scan out of a 900 is to buy the US model!

    Cheers

    That's what I thought! I much prefer the look of the 900, but the video DAC in teh 905 is twice as fast. The review from Australia also says that the picture quality is amazing.

    I think I read on another forum that a price quoted in a recent magazine was a mis-print :(

    I think the new 705 comes in around £200 so I would doubt if the 905 is cheaper. Will probbly be cheaper than 900 though. That's the way it's going.
