DV-980H DVD Player (Progressive Scan, 1080i Upconversion, HDMI)

Strengths: Costs less than Blu-Ray if you are not ready to upgrade .

Weakness: The cost , I got mine for $169.00 at Amazon .

Great Standard Definition player .Back panel has most of the same outputs as a Blu- Ray player .
Easy to use and connect .
I use mine with a Sony STR-DA5300ES 7.1 Receiver Upconversion is great also . If you are not ready to switch to a Blu-Ray player ( movies still priced too high ) then this player is for you .

Oppo DV-980H

Strengths: As close as you can get to Hi Def or Blu Ray for much less . Easy to opperate

Weakness: A tad pricey for standard def .I got mine at Amazon for $169.00 and free shipping

I bought this unit for its up conversion and its 7.1 capabilities .
Very easy to connect and operate .
The back panel has every connection you need for discrete 7.1 .
Some are going to say its is priced too high for a standard def player .
To me it is well worth the money .

The best preHD/preBlueRay player

Strengths: Plays all convetional formats

Weakness: None

Great choice if you want a high quality upscaling DVD player.

Strengths: Beautiful picture quality and sound. Very easy to set up.

Weakness: no sd/memory card slot for viewing pictures (does have a USB slot though)

Very high quality upscaling DVD player without the $300-$400 price tag. Yes, this DVD player is more expensive than the ones you see at Best Buy or Circuit City, almost $100 more expensive. But the difference in quality from this Oppo 980H and an entry level (sub $100 player) is very noticeable. First the picture quality of the upscaled image is amazing. Almost (I said almost) as good looking as...

Oppo DV980H

Strengths: Hard-pressed to find a player supporting more formats at this price, great video, great audio, superior packaging, simple but effective.

Weakness: None so far

I purchased this DVD player to replace one that set me back more than 10x the price to free up some cash for other things and I don't regret it in the slightest. Don't be fooled, this is NOT an HD player. Your upconverted DVDs will not look like a quality HD-DVD or a Blu-Ray disc, but you can rest assured you will get a great picture out of your older movies. Setup was remarkably simple,...
