"As I watched Transformers on Blu-ray, the BD55ís picture looked remarkably detailed and punchy. In a scene where Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) flips over the handlebars of the girlsí bike heís riding past a prominently placed Burger King, the pink bike and red/orange signage in the background looked vivid and clean. And when the mysterious muscle car thatís been chasing him enters the scene, its yellow body paint displayed a wide range of finely delineated hues. The same scenes viewed in 1080i using the playerís component-video output looked notably softer when compared with HDMI, but thatís often the case with Blu-ray players and other high-def sources."
Extended warranty for $329 please give me a break By then just buy a better and new one.
