I owned the 770 and the toshiba xa2. I think the 770 is at least it's equal for DVD up conversion. The 770 is a smooth and quick operator with a picture and features that beats the 1000es in my opinion for both blu-Ray and DVD. I returned it for 2 reasons.
1. It has no color,contrast,gamma,etc controls to make possible adjustments.
2. I felt my pioneer elite 23fd had a slightly superior picture. I kept the pioneer and returned the Sony. The Sony was almost a keeper. Excellent player overall.
