I have tried 4 new DVD players with my Marantz and in each case the image from the progressive mode looked slightly sharper than interlaced.
HOWEVER I finally gave up as I haven't been able to get the Marantz to cleanly lock on the progressive signal. Some times it is perfect for a whole movie. More often I get a "jittering" effect from every few minutes to every 5 seconds at its worse.
I finally settled on the Sony NS900 after trying and returning the Philips Q50 (a disaster functionally), a Sony NS300 and the Panasonic RP56. It still has the jitter sometimes but less than the others. Normally I just use the interlaced signal as once the jittering starts it gets more frequent and is pretty annoying.
