When compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 9, the 2.35:1 DVD exhibits dramatic improvements, though not anamorphically enhanced. The most noticeable improvement is color balance, which appears red and oversaturated on the LaserDisc. The LaserDisc picture is horribly soft. Viewed alone, images on the DVD are sharp, though fine details and clarity are wanting. Edge enhancement is prevalent, as well as fine film grain. Artifacts are apparent throughout. Viewed alone, the dated DVD picture is generally mediocre, but the improvements over the LaserDisc are impressive.
Reason #54 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love WSR because I always seem to find out information on new technology or new products in your magazine first. Sometimes I find out as much as two issues in front of other publications. I also like the fact that you are not scared of technical articles, such as the video calibration article and the Digital Video Essential article, which goes into much depth and does not just skim the surface like many other publications seem to do. I like the articles, and I always skim forward to the end of the mag to read the new DVDs scheduled for release. I enjoy the mag very much! Keep it coming!
