Usually early combo players are better with one format, is this the case here or does it seem to do both well Lotus????
Actually it is $100 less than the MSRP of 1080p capable units.
This means it could street around $650 online.
That is a good price.
As far as I can tell it appears good at both. This isn't like DVD-A and SACD where two entirely different formats are being done by one unit. They both use the same video and audio codecs. The entire difference is in the bandwidth capability and the angle at which the BD discs are read.
