I am looking to get a budget upscaling DVD player, what would you say is currently the best one?

And the best place/price to get it?

Hi,

I cant speak from experience,but the reviewers like the pioneer Dv-400V at the moment.Available online at £70/80 ish multi region.

Good Luck,

Useful info - thanks.

How do these compare, or is one upscaling DVD pretty-much as good as another around that price?

Well poersonally I would probably buy a PS3 and go BD if it wasnt for my R1 DVD collection (and presumably no DVD region hack on the PS3).

Hence I was looking for a "cheap" DVD upscaler for the short-term and for all my DVD's - say under £75?

Did a search on the Oppo on google and couldnt find a link in the UK. Who sells it?

Cheers

Google it,mate.

Amazon sell them as do many others.The reviews prefere the 981,but "Cheap" isnt really an applicable word.Around £150/£180

Contrary to popular belief,Oppo are American,based in California.Their european base is in Sweden.

What display are you using it with?

The reason I ask is that the sub-£75 ones are likely to give you a picture that's not really any better (in some ways worse) than you'd get with your TV doing the processing.

Great answer - sorry I'm dumb on this subject and thought they were a much of a muchness.

I'm waiting for my Samsung LE46A656 to be delivered (I chose that due to the great advice I got from this forum)

I'm in the same position - have the Samsung LE46A656 and am looking for a DVD Player now.

Would prefer a Samsung as can use the AnyNet but seems some of the Samsungs have issues. I do like the Pioneer 600 (approx £120) but I was looking to pay approx 75 pounds also.
