How To Shop For A Next Generation Disc Player

Potential Value
Ultimately, the decision of which next-generation DVD player to purchase boils down to a single question: just how adventurous do you want to be? The new high-definition software formats are loaded with potential: the potential for a substantial improvement in picture quality, the potential for really cool interactive content, the potential to drop a ton of money on new software titles and the potential to someday own a completely useless piece of hardware. The upconverting DVD player is certainly the safer bet right now, for both monetary and compatibility reasons. If you have a large DVD collection and a smaller HDTV, you could live quite happily with upconversion for the next few years while HD DVD and Blu-ray duke it out. Just don’t expect miraculous improvements in picture quality. The less you venture, the less you gain.
