Arcam BDP-100 had numerous bugs. Haven't found any reviews for the 300. Personally, I don't think it's worth it. It's a 2-year old player, and an upgrade to a new model looks imminent.

hi gel,i have had the ,bdp100 ,and yes there were some fault with the player ,i know a lot people say theres no diffrence in picture quality when it comes p/q,but i do beleive that it was better than my lx08 pioneer player ,but moving on i know have arcam bdp 300 i have had no problems with it its a major improvement over the 100,and if you enjoy your music this player performs fantastic in this area too,so £500 is not such a bad price,ask your dealer if you can borrow one and check it out im sure it will bring a smile to your face.cheers david

Gel, the 08 and 71 pioneers

Gel, the 08 and 71 pioneers were the same player inside. So no difference apart from the looks. Remember your tv has been calibrated, therefore no need to up grade because you should have all the picture processing switched off. If you want 3d, then that's the only improvement. Not sure about playing music though...

cheers
