The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD exhibits an inconsistent picture, at times looking solid and detailed, while at others looking soft and washed out. Colors are bold and vibrant, but the entire image has a subtly greenish tint. Compression artifacts can also be seen on occasion, but edge enhancement is minor enough to not be a big problem for most of the presentation. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #74 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I'm a fairly avid home theatre enthusiast and like to keep up on all of the most recent development and progress relating to A/V equipment and digital media. Of all of the publications related to this topic, WSR is the most complete, most thorough, and has become the champion of enthusiasts, such as myself, in fighting for the best possible presentation of audio and video in consumer electronics and broadcast media. In addition to the very informative columns, I am very appreciative of WSR's equipment reviews and its commitment to providing a relatively honest opinion of each product. It's refreshing to see a review that does not conclude with: If you like red LED displays, don't mind just slightly bright and forward sounding gear, and absolutely have to have to have your equipment in a gold-tone color, you should go to your nearest XYZ dealer and give an audition. Itís reviews like this that leave me mystified as to why people even bother reading these other publications. I hope that WSR continues its excellent work.
