I think upconversion will only look good up to a point. Any HD source has more data and detail. Computers can try and extrapolite what the data should be from a lower resolution source, but i’ll never be as good.
Toshiba must of thought this or they’d never of brought out HD DVD.

If this is anything like the XD-E500 player, keep your expectations low.

I bet it’s exactly like the XD-E500. Same tech, just embedded directly in the TV instead of a standalone player.

^ Yes, but we think here, that these recent products are not the “superupconversion” hyped a few months ago- that would compete with HD players. The feature of the real Toshiba product that everyone was curious about, had a cell processor. So far- the XD-E500 player has been introduced and is a big ho-hum as it does not use the Cell proc. These TV’s are probably even a step down from the dissapoining player, or at best, the same tech which was not impressive in the least. So, I think the links you post are not representitive of what a consumer can expect. Unless, these came from the above mentioned TV’s. All this new TV is going to do is further confuse the public in a never ending barrage of unsubstantiated hype.

Since we’re on the topic of upconversion, can any of you techno-cats recommend a really good upconverter? LG? Toshiba? Samsung? If you mention a Sony model number, God will strike you down.
