I purchased of the these today, and have been checking it out. For those who are not aware of this unit, it is a "Blu-ray disc / DVD video transport" only. It is almost as tall as my Denon 3803CI receiver. This unit is build like a tank around 30 pounds. It has one of the quietest, most solid drawer mechanisms I have experienced.
I currently own a Panasonic BD30. Compared to the BD30, the Denon is just that little bit sharper. The picture on the Panasonic is awfully good though.
Where this unit beats the Panasonic is on the audio side, particularly on the high res audio formats. It's almost like it went to high res plus. Very impressed so far.
I'll post more details after a couple days with it.
