Best budget 1080p upconverting DVD Players are the Oppo 981 and Denon DVD-1930CI. The Oppo will far exceed the Toshiba. The last generation Oppo 971 was the highest rated budget DVD player on the market.
Yeah, i saw the OPPO 891, and actually ordered it. Now i'm regretting it, because of my DLP Samsung TV, and I'm afraid of the macroblocking issues. I would be out 35 bucks shipping if I wait and see, so maybe I should just wait and see.
