have any of you 2910 owners had the d1? is the 2910 a worthwhile upgrade?
If you check out the new Secret Shootout Benchmark thread that is up, I posted this exact question.Secrets DVD Benchmark shootout thread
I have a D1 too. That entire thread has a ton of information on current players and current displays and what dvd players are good for what. I almost think it should be a sticky since it contains so much info. Anyway, the reply I got was the next step up would HAVE to be the 2910 from my D1.
I honestly think V1 and their bravos are being seriously short-changed from my positive experience so far.
I might add, as I have tried to be fair and mention in most of my posts, my D1 has not been much a problem at except for doing firmware updates to it for the orignal loader. I bought one of the very very first ones and its seen heavy use. I occaisionally have to power it off and on to play a disc but thats it.
What is your display and its native resolution and what input are you looking it? Component? DVI?
Unfortunately I won't have it hooked up to my plasma for a few days yet to compare it head to head with the 1910, its connected to an older Sony XBR that only does 480i through the SVHS.
I don't think the 2910 does 480i through component, though SVHS is pretty much the same thing.
I do find the 4:3 aspect control of the Bravo D1 a problem. My first dvd into any player is a Star Trek Voyaher dvd usually. The open credits where the ship flys through a star's flares are a great test for the black blocking issue. In the Bravo it played on my big screen at 4:3 and I so wanted 16:9 for that
