    On my Z2 i think that Progressive looks better, must be the dvd player handles this better than the internal scaler.

    My view on the 935 compared to my pio 757 is this, the 935 for NTSC material gives an absolutely superb picture and is pin sharp but for PAL i preferred to pio 757, so sold my 935 as i didnt want two dvds doing one job.

    I am now waiting for other companies to introduce dvi to their dvd players then will try again and once prices have fallen slightly.

    On my HS20 it it definitely worth it, I have them both, so had the choice.

    Whether that translates though...

    The user interface is far better on the Pioneer btw

    MIkeaitch.. I notice that you also have the yamakawa 365 to your pj how does this compare to your 935 as I dont watch that much ntsc really i would like a player that would give me 1280x720p at 50hz if possible. do you have the two of them for this reason. cheers Mike

    I bought the yammy to access divx, and also custom resolutions to get near 1:1 pixel matching.

    It gives a smoother , but slightly softer picture than the Samsung, but probably is the better overall choice for flexibility and can be firmware upgraded. It is a little fussier about scratched discs tho, and build quality is nothing special.

    I'll keep them until the mainstream players come out but in my book, DVI is the way to go
