The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows good color saturation and balance. Black levels are adequately deep and details in the shadows are rendered nicely, although some scenes can look overly hazy. The image can have a pinkish tone, especially noticeable in fleshtones. Details are rendered nicely with good resolution. Edge enhancement is noticeable in some of the higher contrast scenes, although it is not overly distracting. Pixel breakup and compression artifacts can be noticed from time to time, but generally the picture looks clean. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #129 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I enjoy the in-depth look at industry trends, informative and intelligent articles on emerging technologies, and of course, the new products in the Coming Soon…section. I like the fact that your magazine is not jammed packed with manufacturer’s marketing and sales ads. I understand having some but not as many as your competitor (HTM). I enjoy the movie reviews, which I found to be much more accurate than others (HTM). And lastly, I am a fellow Hungarian like Gary, heck we even share the same fascination for high-tech gadgets. I stopped by the booth at CES, unfortunately I missed him each time. Keep up the good work.
