I've got a Hitachi 43UWX10B, and a Toshiba 3109 DVD player (I've had for a few years)


Some people tell me I should go get a new prog scan DVD player, others tell me the line doubler in my Hitachi is more than sufficient and I won't see a major bump in picture quality by going to prog scan


What do you guys think??

Minor improvement only ...


It is almost never a huge difference.

Mike, is correct. I've done tests and saw only very minor improvments in fast motion scene's. Not worth the investment... you want reall GOOD DVD picture.. build yourself a HTPC..

I have a Yamaha C920 with a button that goes progressive/non-progressive and I have done some A/B testing. Though the difference may be minor, I do feel it helps the details a alot and it is not just fast actions scenes.. For example, The lord of the rings has some shots of the hobbit town in the beginning. You can tell a big difference in the grass areas between progressive and non-progressive. I have a 60" GWII and I am sure size has something to do with how much of a difference you see. At 43" it might not be noticable, but at 60" the small difference helps in the overall quality of the pictures. I am glad I have it and happy I upgraded my DVD unit. I dont feel I wasted my money.
