    are they decent, or would it be a much better move to buy a dedicated DVD player which can be had for under $150? i have a 10 year old rear projection pioneer elite tv and don't need progressive scan.

    thanks!

    Tom,

    Skip on the PS2 as a dedicated DVD player and buy a stand-alone player. It will save you headaches, induced both by the large amounts of shimmering & grain, loss of black level detail, and weaker sound processing via the PS2.

    As for the Xbox, I cannot say since I don't own one. But one thing is for sure -- I trust the Xbox has at very least marginally better DVD playback capability.
