My usual set up is a Xbox running component progressive scan (480p) to my Panasonic AE200 projector with stunning results. I've tried a few progressive scan DVD players and thought they all looked really crap against my Xbox setup.... Until now. I'm now the proud owner of a Toshiba SD340E DVD player and couldn't be more pleased. Pros. The setup menus are really easy to navigate and setup up. Colour and definition on DVD's are spot on. Lord of the Rings looks amazing and almost looks 3-D. Contrast and image depth is also wonderful. Images have a beautiful natural feel to them. All in all, i'm really impressed. No noise from the player (which is a great relief from using my noisy Xbox). Negs. The whole machine feels quite plasticky and the remotes a bit naff. Not that i'm too bothered.. Summary. A worthwhile and noticable upgrade from the Xbox (but the Xbox does come quite close). Hope this helps somebody.
