Have DVD players really gotten that much better in the last few years?

    Hi,

    I've read a lot of posts that say DVD deinterlacing techology has advanced a lot in the last couple years. Have players really advanced so much that it would be worth replacing an older model with a new one? Specifically, I use a Sony 9000ES with a Sony 34XBR2. I've been happy with the performance but wonder now if I would get an even better result with a new player. Has the performance of the 9000ES been outpaced to such an extent?

    Let me just say this, that the performance level of the 9000 ES,can be achieved at a much lower price level these days,so that would be yes.
    Now as far as features and ease of use,is totally up to you to decide.

    But the coolness factor of the 9000ES cannot. [​IMG]

    In short, player performance at the lower price levels now, in many cases, matches that of higher-priced models of only two years ago. Performance quality is up while the prices are down.

    Now, when it comes to build quality, however, most sub-$500 machines look mighty flimsy. "Handle with care."
