Just thought I would check the prices and found that amazon has them in stock with the free seven disc offer for 120 of your British pounds. Given that the discs are 15 quid each (unless you import them) that is a top notch upscaling DVD player for 15 quid!
I am almost tempted (if it played other region SD discs I would get one).
They also have the EP35 for 190 quid, but it is not in stock.
I have a PS3 for blu-ray in case you think I am a HDDVD fanboy, but "The Thing" is only on HDDVD. And I love it.
