Many people on this forum would argue the thing about throwing out the cable. Some say that HDMI is HDMI, so it does not matter if you have some great cable.

The only way to really tell i take one home with a good return policy or find somewhere that will let you borrow one and try it out for yourself, and maybe even rent two copies of the same dvd and do an a/b test with your regular dvd player on one and the upscaling on the other. Have someone else do the connections for you and start the movies up simultaneously so that you can switch between inputs with your remote and do a little blind test.
|And for the love of God....throw out the cable that comes with the DVD player.|
|In the upscaling dvd player, the dvd is still 720x480 but the dvd player upscales it to 1280x720 and then sends this 1280x720 signal to the tv that will do no upscaling on it since it is already at the tv's display resolution.|

Most HDTV's only upconvert DVD's to 480p (using 3/2 pulldown, i believe is what they call it) if the DVD player isnt already progressive scanning in the first place. The HDTVs of today aren't going to upconvert a DVD to 720p or 1080i.
TVs dont just have one resolution, as you're implying, most do at least 3. My 30" Samsung CRT HDTV does 480i, 480p, and 1080i.
