The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a gritty texture, and with unconvincing black levels, the imagery can look flat and undefined. Details often look soft, occasionally even looking smeared. Shadow delineation is generally lacking in the near blacks, with details in these portions of the image looking crushed. Colors can be adequately well saturated and natural-looking, and contrast is balanced well. Whites are nicely balanced, showing good detail without noticeable crush and no blooming. Edge enhancement is apparent, and source element and compression artifacts can be recognized throughout. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #51 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I feel that your magazine has a nice balance of high-end and mid-range audio equipment. I've purchased some equipment after reading some of your reviews and found that they work just like the way you said. I no longer need any more equipment to purchase, but I've taken a two-year subscription because of your DVD reviews, which I find top notch. I find the picture and sound quality reviews important to me. I also read the equipment reviews, which I enjoy because you never know when a piece of equipment will need to be replaced. Keep up the good work.
