    Since my usual MO is to complain about DVD transfer and mastering quality, I thought I would break the mold here [​IMG].

    I want to congratulate Disney on the absolutely spectacular transfers on season 1 of "Lost". I don't believe I have ever seen better IQ from a set of DVD's.

    Standing as a very close second are the "Desperate Housewives" season 1 set.

    Viewing these on a very large (60" x 110") screen using a Qualia at 1080 sourced by a HTPC using the latest NVidia decoder and video technology with TheaterTek player software, image quality is absolutely stunning.

    Unnoticable (if any) EE, amazing levels of detail, both foreground and background, a joy to watch. These two sets stand as truly reference DVD's for video quality.

    Bravo, Disney!!! You have made amazing progress over the last year and I congratulate you on your efforts and the resulting quality of these recent DVD sets.

    I have had the Qualia for about a year now. Roughly 1400 hours on the beast.

    Time for a visit.

    agreed, the video on both those sets are pretty good.

    conversely, Nip Tuck was terrible!

    The Lost DVD set does indeed look fantastic, IMHO. Good job, Disney!

    Another outstanding transfer - the new release of "Pretty Woman". Watched it last night and was extremely impressed.
