The 941 has not been released yet, so there is no way to know if the black crush issue exists, or has been solved, on that particular model. We'll just have to wait and see. Since I have one on order, I'll be one of the first to "see."

I meant 841 & 931. Supposedly Samsung has delayed the 941 a bit. Lets hope they delayed it to fix the crush problems of the previous two models.

AMEN TO THAT! It was originally scheduled to ship in early July. I keep hearing, from various sources that the 941 will be shipping sometime between now and Thanksgiving. We'll just have to wait and see.

The 941 is definately one that will be on the top of my list for my Sanyo Z2. I hope they have fixed the crush issue. But the momitsu and bravo d2 are also a close second...oh yeah and don't forget the Denon's

FYI: Over at AVS (DVD Player forum) some guys have a thread about seeing the Samsung 941 on sale at Good Guys. Looks like it's finally starting to show up.

Yeah but.....one guy posted:

"I just went to Good Guys and asked about the 941. They had no knowledge of it. So I showed them the picture of it in the flyer they were handing out at the front door. They said those were printed months in advance and that their computer said the 941 wasn't even in their warehouse.

However, the latest post says:

"I heard it should be released sometime within Nov27th to Dec 5th...Only time will tell! If not released by these dates then I will pop for the Denon 2910.

I'm not gonna count on this unit until I get the "Your order has shipped" email from Amazon.

EDIT: Excuse me Legairre. Those posts were from a thread that was started on Friday, not the one started today. Both threads are about the same thing.

Based on some threads over at AVS, it appears the 941 may be available for shipping at various etailers. However, there are a few on AVS that have already reported that the black crush issue is still common with this player. Looks like I may have to give the Momitsu some further thought, as many have said the Momitsu 880 deluxe and the Sanyo Z2 are a combination that is hard to beat...

Thought I would revive this older thread to see if there is any updates from anyone. Is the 941 out yet, and what about the black crush problems of the earlier models. Also, is there any new kids on the block in upconverting DVD players that would be worth a look? My main concern is that I want to use it for my Sanyo Z2 (DVI), or Z3(HDMI) if I buy one soon as it has some better specs. I have also heard about LG having a HD Receiver/Upconverting DVD combo unit. I know that the Momitsu 880 deluxe and Bravo D2 have done well with the Sanyo combination.

Oh well, lets see if anyone has any updates...Randy

The 941 is out. The Denon 2910 does upconvert...the 3910 and 5910 too.
