    At £400 I'd rather have a silicon image iscan pro, I'm fairly sure it will improve your picture. That's 852x480 pixel screen, if memory serves?

    Yes there are lipsync issues, yes it will improve your picture, but by how much if you are already connecting with component. My guess is not that much from DVD, but quite noticeable with sky or whatever tv you use. You can get external audio delay boxes to overcome lipsync.
