I've got a 42" NEC (4210W) plasma screen and I've been playing DVDs through my laptop and a standard vga connector (plus sound out via the relatively crappy laptop socket into a stereo system). The picture has been v. good on all except one dvd. Anyway, would like to invest in a decent surround sound system and dvd player, and on the dvd front, the 737k seemed like a good purchase. But is it? Will the 'progressive scan' make a big difference on this screen? (It certainly has component inputs, but is that the same as 'progressive component inputs'?) I've read a few posts here saying a PC will actually provide a much better picture than any dvd player. Is this true? Can you explain? How would this work with getting good surround sound too? cheers, Vince.
