"Great alternative while waiting for the HD/Blueray war to end."4.0 starson by jmar198
Pros: Upconverts well on MOST DVDs
Cons: Doesn't come with an HDMI cable.
Summary: I have a Samsung 40 inch 1080i LCD tv, I have to say this DVD player compliments it nicely. To those who have complained about the DVD quality this is what I've found. It seems that how good the quality is depends on either how old the DVD is and/or who manufactured the actual DVD. I watched the wide screen edition Serenity the minute I hooked up the DVD player it still showed the letter box even though I was running at 1080i and a widescreen LCD, next I put in the wide screen edition of Night At The Museum and the letter box were gone and it was defiantly unconverted to 1080i. This unit only goes for around a hundred bucks so you get what you pay for. For now, for me it works while the whole HD DVD/Blueray mess is sorted out. The only con I found was it didn't come with an HDMI cable.
