On comparing the Toshiba 100E to my Pioneer 626D, i found that the Toshiba had a much better picture than my 626D. Pictures were more sharper and much more cinematic. Its clear that Toshiba's 540 Line Resolution really does make a huge difference. Why dont other companies offer this feature? I was thinking of replacing my Pioneer 626D with a better player like the Pioneer 737, but since the 737 doesent support 540 Line Resolution, there is not much point. Toshiba's Flagship SD-900E is simply too expensive for me. Their 500E does 540 Lines and will be better, but its not something worth spending extra money on. SO I will wait. I sure hope other companies start to use the 540 Line Res! Lets hope they do! Ahh it's all so annoying!
