    This information is somewhat buried in another thread, but I thought it deserved mentioning.
    Had a look at the new Toshiba SD-3750 DVD player the other day. Above all else, there is some good news: Toshiba has finally improved their downconversion algorithm!
    What I saw was a nicely detailed image with no annoying "jaggies" as often seen on other Toshiba players when downconverting an anamorphically-enhanced DVD. The image was very smooth - but not too soft, a complaint from some of Sony DVD players, which have no downconversion artifacts but tend to suffer from a softening of detail. It is nice to see this finally corrected by Toshiba.

    One day, I'll be able to buy a player that's under $200US and has:
    1) Movie time remaining in the display.
    2) Custom memory, including zoom settings, for up to 200 movies.
    3) No chroma bug. No flickering bug.
    4) On the remote prog/interlaced switching.
    5) Aspect ratio control.
    6) A super quiet transport.
    But not today.
