The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD has a harsh appearance, although details are delivered nicely in general. Contrast is balanced fairly well, but images can be overly bright. Whites do not show much blooming, but details in the whites can be crushed. Black levels are somewhat milky, but shadow delineation is generally good. Colors are somewhat undersaturated, but hues are generally limited to warm browns and reds. Compression artifacts can be noticed at times throughout, and edge enhancement, while minor, can be a slight distraction at times. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #6 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for a couple of reasons. First, I work in the electronics industry, and it is essential to have great demo material when presenting a product. It would be impossible to buy every DVD out there to find out what looks and sounds good in the DVD world. Second, electronics is my passion. I am constantly looking for any new information on software and hardware. WSR is a great source of information on both hardware and software.
