    Well, you can always look up some reviews on the internet, but from what I've seen, it's a whole lot more than just "any" good. I have the A2 (U.S. equivalent) and my description would be VERY good :)!

    i think it's excellent, both HD and the up scaling capabilities of SD Dvds are fantastic, excellent value for money at £179

    I brought one of these when it came out at £449 it was great then, and at £179 is even better value now.

    Also bought an EX1 recently so moved the E1 upstairs.

    HD-DVD at £179 shows a dramatic improvement on many films with a 720p or 1080p display, but be warned occasional movies look terrible such as the American Werewolf in London, for a really good look try MI3 or Superman.

    The price is good, but with your screen I'd be looking at a player which could do progressive and 24Hz output, and for a mere £70 or so more, Toshiba will shortly launch the EP30 HDDVD player. Don't forget to check for any current/upcoming free disc promotions too, for either player - I'm sure everyone likes free discs - if they are movies you like, they can certainly take some of the wallet sting out of the decision process :) )

    Of course, if your display does perfect deinterlacing and pulldown removal (though even the very best can still be tripped up at scene changes etc), then progressive output from the player may be a bit of a moot point!
