Its the Uk's first Blu-Ray player, it looks amazing but how good is it.....
Blu-ray is finally here and, according to its backers, it’s going to take us, “Beyond High Definition.” But with the evidence that it gives us, there’s still a long way to go before that’s anything more than just marketing hype. The start up time feels slower than a DVD Player however it is quicker than Toshiba’s HD-A1 (the import-only flag-bearer of the HD-DVD format). Blu-ray discs play back at maxi-def 1080p. The player also upscales regular DVDs. Adaptation and Lost look pretty impressive when boosted to pseudo-1080i however titles are limited for this thing and you could be waiting a while to actually watch something you want to watch on this high quality machine. This isnt a bad player but is it the new relevation of the future we've been led to expect? No! and is it worth £1000??
