You're telling me...
I unloaded my BD-UP5000 Blu/HD player since I bought a total of one Blu-ray title in the three months that I owned it. And I got sick of the player's issues with many titles. So until my 7000s arrive, I've had to bring my 2002~ Samsung DVD player out of mothballs.
I'm one of those people who constantly warns people about buying into the upscaling DVD player hype, since most TVs have better upscalers than most DVD players.
But DVD playback technology has evolved tremendously over the past 6-7 years. And if I needed a reminder...
Even with my TV doing the upscaling job from my old Sammy (which was once high-end), the video is very soft and the colors washed out.
I can't wait until my SHD7000s arrive.
