    I have an Iscan Pro driving an ECP CRT Projector- my question is - would a Quadscan Elite be considered an upgrade to enable line tripling etc? Would the Quadscan improve the picture quality. I mainly use DVD and TV via a Phillips Freeview box.

    I would say no, the problem with the Quadscan products is they seriously crushed the black level details.
    The iscan doubling would be far nicer than the quadscan tripling on an ecp.
    I owned a Quadscan btw.

    Thanks gizlaroc,

    The Iscan does a reasonable job but you are always looking to go one step further. The ECP can cope with HD 720P and is in good condition. I thought the quadscan may have been a low cost option of achieving this.

    Thanks again for your advice.

    You would be better to look for a used Lumagen Vision, I sold one a year or so ago for £300, so I guess they would be less than that now? Now that would be a worthwhile change.

    The Quadscan doesn't have film detection on PAL sources, let alone it's other little foibles. I'd go with Gizalrocs recommendation or look at a newer VisionDVI......
