"Great way to extend the life of your sd-DVD collection!"4.0 starson by cybertiger90
Pros: Does exactly what it claims for under $80.00
Cons: Don't expect HD quality- just better than SD quality- noticeable on even small screen t.v.'s.
Summary: By utilizing the HDMI cable, this little machine will improve your dvd's images to "near" (not as good, but definitely better) HD quality. That being said- the age/quality of encoding on the dvd and the brand/size/setup of the tv is crucial to the picture quality. Make sure an HDMI cable is connected directly from the dvd player to the tv and that the resolution is set to 1080i or 720p. the player can be set to use the t.v.'s native resolution automatically. one of the cool things about HDMI, like USB, is it allows two way communication between components. In short- a great, cheap way to upgrade sd dvd before replacing with blu ray or digital download.
