    I currently have the Zenith C27V36 HDTV with the Toshiba SD-3900(progressive scan) dvd player hooked up with component cables. I watch dvds in 480p mode.

    Since I have an DVI input on my tv, would I benifit in a dvd player with DVI out? Also would I notice much of a difference with 1080i over 480p on a 27" screen?

    I'm interested in getting the Samsung HD931 dvd player, if there wold be a noticable difference in picture quality.

    I have a Toshiba 50HDX82 and a RP-82 that just died. So I went to BB and picked up the Samsung 931, I played Monsters Inc. first and it looked very impressive. I then put in Star Wars II, the Matrix and the Fifth Element, What a letdown. The picture had great color, but it was very, very grainy. I kept it for a couple of days hoping I might get used to it, but it just bothered me too much and I brought it back. Who knows the new players may be much better? I hope so.

    I pretty happy with the picture quality that I have now(big improvement over what I had before). Always looking for something better. The upgrade bug just won't leave me alone. [​IMG]

    Might want to compare it your rig to a computer running DVI to a LCD.

    I've not done that yet but it would be interesting [​IMG]

    The bug is fun though!

    If only my PC had a DVI out. [​IMG]


    I'm thinking that since I only hvae a 27" set that the difference isn't going to be that noticable, thus not worth the price of the upgrade.
