The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD, compared to the previously released non-anamorphic DVD, exhibits improvements across the board. Images are sharper with finer details and definition.

Reason #91 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I need a magazine at dose and not a sugar coat approach to reviews. I need a magazine that is not bias or a sell-out. And Widescreen Review is my winner. I am a 23-year old audiophile that likes to stay in the know and up to date on whatís new and whatís hot. I can't do that with a magazine that says every single review is a good one, like other mags out there that will be left name-less. The Sound And Vision of a product is important, but donít sell-out to make a buck, and those people out there are the ones who think that Gateway makes a good plasma. Keep up the good work. I love the mag.
