Default Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?

Are all BD players the equal of the best Toshibas in upconversion? No. And neither would be other HD DVD players if someone other than Toshiba (and Meridian) would actually make one.

The best Toshibas are excellent upconverters. In fact, they represent some of the best upconversion I've ever seen of standard-def DVD... surpassing even "tweaked" HPTC systems from the past. However, even if average BD players from other manufacturers don't match this ultra-high level of performance, they are hardly "bad" by comparison, as a hit-or-miss notion would imply. My PS3 provides outstanding upconversion quality which bests my formerly outstanding dedicated Oppo upconversion player. It might not quite match the best Toshiba, but it creates a beautiful upconverted DVD image nevertheless.
