Even without the Darbee the "D" slightly outperforms the original 103, just tiny revisions & tweaks here and there.

So nowhere near the improvement shown in the 7 split-screen review pix I posted a link to? The right side of the pix looks like a non-upscaled, DNR'd DVD, while the left side looks incredibly well-defined. Then you read the comments and no-one seemed to like it, some saying they never should've replaced the Marvell QDEO chip (only on 105's?). But those split-pix are far out. Ah, if I only had the cash to experiment.

No, I was just commenting on the differences *without* the Darbee between the 103 and 103D.

are there any cheap (sub $100) blu-ray players that handle these problematic discs well?
