Well, I own two 983s and three PS3s plus a Pioneer 95FD standalone Blu-ray player so I have some experience with all of them (not to mention a number of other Oppo players). On my 100" front projector screen (via a JVC DLA-HD1 projector) upscaled DVDs (even when played on a 983) don't look nearly as good as the BDs. The fancy upscaling/deinterlacing logic in the DVD players simply can't reliably put the pixels in the right place when projected onto a large screen at 1080p.
Don't get me wrong, I am really impressed with the Oppo DV-983H and its ability to upscale DVDs (I own about 1000 DVDs so I do care about this), especially on smaller screens (looks really good on my 46" LCD TV from about 10 feet back). I just think that unless you've compared the upscaled DVD image to the BD image on a large 1080p screen, you are really not "seeing" it at its best (BD that is).
