For our money, this is the sexiest 1080p upscaling DVD player that we've seen in a long time. The Helios H4000 DVD player can product 1080p and 1080i video using HDMI, component and VGA, making your older DVDs infinitely more watchable and holding off the next-gen onslaught for another few years.

The player can also play back "DivX, XviD, MPEG1, MPEG, MPEG4, SVCD, VCD and HDCDs", which means pirate-fans are right at home as well. Like boy-band N*SYNC and that screaming bald dude from basic cable say, "BUY! BUY! BUY!"

DISCUSSION

Yes - sexy - okay, good reason to buy it.

Upconverting a 480p signal to 1080i is your reason for the purchase? May I suggest actually watching a movie on it first and comparing to a standard 480p DVD player? I have seen a couple of these upconverting players in action, and to date have not seen any noticable improvement in picture quality.

Then again, I am pretty much an old man these days, so take my comment with a grain of salt.
