    was just wondering will SD owning plasma people actually see ANY difference in pic quality even though the screen is SD ? i have seen a few threads lately advising people to hang on if they need a new dvd player as the new HD`s will be out soon but if im not going to see any benefit in picture then i might aswell stick with SD.

    Of course you will, HD is so much more than resolution.

    Toshiba HD players will output everything at 480p over component, ideal for the SD screens!

    I should think you will. I have played HD video from my media PC into a PWD6 and the picture just blew SD DVD away even when played from my Naim DVD5!

    Definitely! :)

    I remeber how good the US Toshiba 3107 was when I got that, first DVD player and all that, took years for a better model to come out, they just seemed to get cheaper and cheaper, not bettter and better.

    No, don't even know if the model number has been released yet. There is a bit in this months The Perfect Vision talking to Toshiba and they said they are still on for November and with 89 titles. So I guess we can expect it to arrive at least before xmas, it is going to be an expensive end of the year, with this, the Xbox360 and new scalers too. :(
