The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD picture looks much better than the previously released non-anamorphic DVD. The black-and-white imagery is haunting with deep blacks, bright whites, and excellent contrast. Images are sharp and nicely textured. The picture is much smoother, while retaining finer details. There is some pixel breakup, but edge enhancement is not a problem with this DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #108 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I have been reading WSR for about two years now and especially enjoy the product review section. Although the other articles and review sections are generally well-written and informative, the product reviews give me an unbiased look at new technologies and products. Being in the home theatre design field, I look at many different sources for product ups and downs and find your magazine a very valuable resource in this area. Keep up the great work!!
