I need one with Zoom (after the wifey saw one in action, we have to have it), for an interlaced (regular, not HD) TV connection. I do not care about MP3 or DVDAudio. I just want it to be ***RELIABLE***. I know that Toshiba, JVC, and Samsung offer this feature. I am crossing Samsung off the list (too many reliability stories w/ that brand). Toshiba SD-1700 I have seen the SD-1700 in action on my TV, SVideo connection. Level 1 Zoom is unbelievable. I played a DVD at OAR (original aspect ratio), hit pause, and then toggled Zoom levels. *Very* little difference in terms of noticable resolution - truly neglible IMO. However this player is made in China. I was hoping for a Japan model. Toshiba SD-3750 I think this one is made in Japan, can someone verfiy? I know this is a Progressive model, but it has superior video DACs and should put out a superior analog signal? Also, does this unit have the same "4 level zoom"? The Toshiba website only says "Zoom". Also, how is the anamorphic downconversion? This player can be had for under $200 shipped = very attractive. JVC Models. I have read so many conflicting reports about intelaced performance as of late, that I don't know what to believe. I have never seen JVC's zoom in action. How does it compare to Toshiba's zoom? Price isn't a key point here - I don't need the player to be "cheap." Any and all opinions are welcome. Thanks. Rich B.
