I want to buy a 5 DVD player from Sony, and both of these players are in my price range. The difference between the two is that the 655 is a progressive player. I understand the differences between Progressive/Interlaced players. I just bought a TV last year that is not progressive so I will not be buying this DVD player assuming it will ever be used by a Progressive TV. I want to know if anyone knows if the Progressive version offers any visual processing (image quality) benefits that I would be able to take advantage of. My TV is a 36 inch Wega that has the 16:9 mode. The specs say that the 655P has 4X oversampling. Is that just for the processing of the progressive image, or does that also apply when it is in interlaced mode? The price difference is only $50, but that's $50 I could spend on DVDs if there will be no noticable difference. Thanks in Advance.
