Precisely. This player HAS to perform in every way better than the current competition if it is to thrive. Dune players have always been bought by more discerning users who expect the best. Just another Android box won't cut the mustard.The Mediaplayers review said _what_ the new Dune can do, but not (for picture quality) _how_well_.
The review includes, without comment, a picture of a Spears & Munsil test pattern. Irregularities in the published picture could be the fault of the Dune -- or of the photography and formatting for the review.
I'm sure someone will critically evaluate the Dune's picture quality.
