Pixel breakup and compression artifacts can be noticed from time to time, but generally the picture looks clean. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #102 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I just recently started a home theatre business called Celestial Audio Video. Widescreen Review plays an important part for many reasons. Not only can I keep up with new trends and new technologies, I can understand better, and I am able to also explain to customers about forth-coming products. The in-depth and detail of your articles are not only appreciated but needed. In short, on a professional level your publication is a must-read every month. On a personal level, I enjoy the DVD reviews, the monthly feedback, and editor's couch. I would also like to see more reviews on DVD concerts. As far as I'm concerned, your magazine is top notch for home theatre, unsurpassed by none and stands in a class by itself. A true reference quality publication.
