your tv already has an upconverting scaler. Probably a half decent one if you paid over a grand for it recently and its one of the major brands.

You don't always get improved image quality with upconverting players. Sometimes you do, but only if the scaler on the dvd player is superior to the one already in the tv. Also the 2 scalers can also conflict with one another.

can somebody please quickly confirm this for me because i have like 2 hours to jump on this deal. also can somebody list the formats it would have to be in. thanks.
OH I guess we are too late. :heh:

...

Online prices usually reflect in store prices...

It seriously can't be that hard to do some searching yourself :lol:

Just go to Bestbuys online site and browse, then phone the closest one to you and see if they have any.
