Well, folks, my AMD Thunderball upgrade in my Antec SX830 case will have to be put on hold for a bit. I bought a Panasonic tabletop DVD player...it was not cheap but I decided on it after reading various evaluations + the mp3 playback capability + the fact that it was made in Japan.
My first impressions: the picture quality on my TV even with the S-video input is just a little better than what I am accustomed to..the tv is the limiting factor here. Also, I don't especially care for the widescreen format because of the wasted screen space. But the biggest difference is the sound: absolutely awesome.
Glad to hear that your DVD drive works great. I've heard about someone having a problem with the Delta 12X drive when using it as a CDROM drive to play a particular game (I forget which one)....and he had some problems upgrading the BIOS on the drive due to poor documentation at the Delta website.
