"What I now know!"3.5 starson by ferrisbueller
Pros: Better picture than my progressive scan dvd player
Cons: Freezing up
Summary: I have panasonic 600u and I bought this to upconvert standard dvds. My old player is a progressive dvd player using component cables. I wanted to see if there was any difference with this upconverter using hdmi. Here what I noticed. With standard dvds I saw some difference for the better using the upconverter with hdmi and I won't go into why that's the case, most people already know. Where I was surprised was when I played an HD DVD on the upconverter. Now I know that only an HD DVD player can play an HD movie in HD, but for whatever reason it appeared sharper on the upconverter than my standard dvds. I think this was due to the quality of the source disk. So I guess the real hd dvd player would look even better. I've also heard the the HD DVD players are also some of the better upconverter out there. I'm going to return the upconverter and wait for the prices to go down on the real thing. Anyway just one guys opinion. Hope it helped someone.
