Panasonic DMP-BD75EB-K Ultra Fast Booting 2D Blu-R&hellip by Panasonic

The last DMP I bought was a Philips, which broke and gave up after just over a year (funny that). However, it was better than this. I sent an explicit list of features I required to the shipping company when they contacted me [i'm not available daytime, mostly] referring to the wide variety of formats it needed to play and functions I required.
Whilst it does play most of the formats, with the exception of half of the mp4 files I had made my movies into for compatability with the Philips unit (I think it's the AVC layer of the Mpeg format, layer 10 it does not have codecs for, and doesn't know it either so won't ever download it during any software upgrade) the unit has a gazillion… Read more
Samsung SE-208AB/TSBS 8 x DVD+/-RW Slim Portable E&hellip by Samsung
OK. First off, u know (when you are a Mac user), that finding a cd in the box of a drive that claims to be plugnplay 4 MAC+PC - it SOOOOO isn't. It means drivers, it means it was designed to run on windows, then probably hooked up to a Mac 'something' to see if the lights went on or not.
So bad news from the off : I've had an earlier model of this design which was far superior but only lasted about a year.
This one waited until 3 DAYS AFTER THE WARRANTY WAS OUT to stop working with my fairly old Mac, and despite showing early signs of comparability, it's now firmly with a mate's PC where it should be at home. Never burnt anything.

[b][i]"NOT a double-dip"?[/b][/i] Are you freaking kidding me? A documentary with Frank Miller that was almost certainly recorded before the release of the individual parts could easily have been included in halves over the original releases - which was, of course, a Warners idea - nowhere has it ever been said "this should really be two separate discs", and then recanted on it only a few months later....that would be pretty poor planning and marketing on behalf of Warners, don't you think?
Make no mistake; though this will certainly be a collector's item, it's -[b]completely[/b] a cynical pre-Christmas drive by Warners in the ever-lengthening shadow Marvel has cast over it in terms of… Read more
