While it might not have the absolute best picture quality it's still better than most players including some priced much higher.

I know some people have a hard time accepting a "game console" as a Blu-Ray player but do you seriously think a Funai player will give the same results?
My player is 2.0 and its not a PS3. My player loads faster than the PS3 (3 - 5 seconds) and can decode all the lossless codecs (still have downsampling on some things but that will be remedied very shortly). It's my PC And it has better PQ than a PS3 (you know - upconversion and all - and I also can do 1080p stuff too )

Edit: Oh I forgot - I have implimented the temporary fix to down sampling found in Vista itself (re-upsample as high as 192khz/24bit) I'm also getting the Xonar HDAV 1.3 when it hits the shelves.
