Why shouldn't I buy the panasonic 210
First post in quite a while (time spent just enjoying my kit)
My pioneer Bdp lx08 blu ray player has (and still does) serve me well in the 2 years or so I have had it. A good match for my sc-lx81 amp and Kuro tv.
I have had the odd intermittent problem in that it can refuse to play old DVDs so now it only gets new blu rays and DVDs I recently joined the love film supported tescovdvd hire service and 3 of 4 blu rays I've received have got so far and then froze. The only way I can unfreeze them is to turn off the player then turn it on again. I took the discs to my parents house who have a Sony s350 and that played them with no problems. So I am thinking that my lx08 is perhaps a bit fussy if it isn't fed a pretty clean disc.
I have made some tentative calls and it seems that it will cost about £80 for someone to look at it and fix it. But then I wonder how long it will be fixed for and what happens if 3, 6, 12 months down the line it goes again.
So I'm thinking of cutting my losses and getting the Panasonic Dmp-bdt210 award winner to replace my lx08.
Seen it on amazon for £143.
Quality of blu ray playback is my number one criteria
Psi why shouldn't I get the Panasonic?
