    It depends on the resolution you are wanting to use. HCPCs will do a variety of resolutions and most people like to use higher resolutions like 800x600 and 1280x720. I don't believe the IScan can do these resolutions. I'm not sure, though. Therefore if the best resolution for your display device is beyond the IScan's capability then it's not even an option worth considering.

    An Iscan has excellent de-interlacing capabilities. Even fed by the best DVD player it is unlikely to get the level of detail you would with a PC though.

    Using it with a Panny? ae100 or plasma, is likely to offer superior performance to a direct feed from a DVD or other sources.

    In instances where there are already lipsync issues on the source material, ie badly mastered DVD's or dodgy Sky broadcasts, the field buffering used by the I scan may result in noticeable audio delay...but only on very rare occasions I'd think.

    I sell them.
