    Hey guys, have I got this right in my head?

    I recently bought a SAMSUNG LE40N87BDX and from what I understand its native resolution is 1920 x 1080 as its a full HD TV. I have a standard DVD player that I'm looking to replace and I am considering the following options:

    1. Buy the Sony DVP-NS78 DVD player which upscales to 1080p so I don't need to replace my existing DVD collection with HD or Blu Ray equivalents

    2. Buy an HD DVD player and start on my HD DVD collection

    3. Buy the
    Samsung BD-PU5000 Blu-Ray and HD DVD Combi Player so I'm protected no matter who wins between Blu Ray and HD DVD

    4. Buy a playstation 3

    Any suggestions?

    Not sure if you'd get any significant advantage getting a cheap upscaling SD DVD player. Your TV will upscale the signal from your current DVD player anyway.

    Can't comment on the HD players I don't have one................yet !

    Hi mate :)
    Buy a HD dvd player this will upscale your dvd's (and do a nice job of it) and then your be able to buy some HD movies and make use of your nice new FULL HD set. :thumbsup:
    There going dirt cheap at the moment and you get 7 free HD dvd's with it as well. :cool:
    Of course your want the PS3 for Blu-ray as well. ;)
