    I'm wondering... those of you who have seen a 963SA in action... how does it hold up to say a TAG DVD32R with a 4 yr old QuadScan?

    I've been a bit out of touch as late, but there was some talk about the 963SA being able to scale as well as de-interlace... has anybody got any data on this?

    Thanks!

    I had a 963 to use with my NEC HT100, but it has some faults with it, and I was very dissapointed with it. In the end I sent it back for a refund.

    I then bought a Toshiba Sd520e which gave a much better picture imho, so despite a small fault (it's to be exchanged) I'm going to keep it.

    I've tried the Limit 9900SE as well, and that gives a slightly softer picture than the Tosh, but it's still a very good picture. I prefer it to the Philips to be honest.

    There's someone selling a Harmon Kardon DV25 iin the classifieds for £250 - that's probably worth getting at that price. :)
