I came across a BD-P2550 a few days ago at best buy on clearance very cheap so I jumped on it as I've been looking for a BD player with the Reon HQV upscaling chip.
Connected to my samsung plasma via HDMI, took me about an hour to get it working. At first it would just hang at the load screen. Then I finally managed to do the FFWD button reset and it eventually got menus working. It did a firmware update. Played a regular dvd (fifth element) for about 30 minutes then froze; couldn't reset or do anything else with the player that night. Next day turned it on and it worked, used netflix for an hour or two with no issues. Turned off, and when I turned it on again later the system would never load and wouldn't let me reset even after a hard power cycle.
Can't play any BD discs so far. So I'm going to try to warranty repair the thing. Has anyone gone through with the warranty gotten back a player that actually worked well? I want to use this because of the reon chip, it upscales SD-DVDs great; and for the price I paid ($99) I don't mind waiting a little bit if it will actually work out well.
