What players handle non-perfect disks?

I have just about settled on a Denon 3910 (region free), but I have lingering doubts about its ability to play anything other than disks in perfect condition. I have these doubts because a friend of mine owns a 3910, and he says it's, quote, "finicky". A lot of the DVDs I watch are from NetFlix, and some are pretty scratched up when I get them. Fingerprints I can clean off, but not scratches.

Also, I watch a lot of CD-Rs that my brother is kind enough to record for me (I have no possibility of cable, and can't get to satellite because I live on the wrong side of a mountain). They aren't the best recordings, and my current player (which is admittedly a cheap piece of junk) has trouble with them. I have concerns about the 3910 being able to handle them as well.

What experiences have others had with players being forgiving about scratches, fingerprints, home recordings, etc.? And do any of those players rival the 3910 in terms of features (great video, DVD-Audio, bass management, analog out, etc. etc. etc.), and can they be gotten region-free?

I appreciate any and all help you can give on this!
