I've seen the old Pioneer Dv434 dissed in recent days, but I honestly don't know why. To my eyes, the picture that it delivers in progressive mode are absolutely stunning. I like it so much that when the need arose recently to purchase a DVD player for my second widescreen HDTV at our vacation home, rather than attempting to sort through the many possible current candidates, I decided to play it safe and buy a second (used) DV434. Someone please tell me why I made a mistake. I'm not trying to start a war here. I'd just like to know what this DVD player lacks compared to better ones. Thanks.
