    Hi,

    I usually try to avoid "budget" players and LG of all names does not inspire confidence.

    How is this player? Should I just pony up for the Sony 975? I assume this LG uses the Zoran de-intelacer right?

    Players like the Denon 1920 lokk like will be a lot more $. Are they really proportionately better. I mean at 3 times the price is it really 3 times better?

    anyone compared the LG LDA-531 to other popular players like the Panny S97 or Sony 975 or Denon 1920?

    ok let's put it this way, trying to chose between LG LDA-531 and the Tosh 4980. any pro or cons to each I should know about?

    does either use the Faroudja de-interlacer?

    I'm interested in comments on the Tosh 4980, and specifically whether the upconversion feature is available via component? The reviews I've read of this unit seem to be obsessed with the blue LED on the front, and not with how it actually performs. HDMI is useless to me, so the component image quality is what I'm most concerned with. I would be replacing a Tosh 5109, so that is my baseline.
