There are a lot of things different between H. B. Halicki
The 1.90:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced,and exhibits a picture that is generally wanting in sharpness and detail, with fine details appearing smeared and unfocused. Colors are dated, but well balanced, with nicely rendered fleshtones and deep blacks. Contrast is mediocre, and shadow delineation is generally poor and wanting in visual information in the darker scenes. The picture is fairly solid, but some pixelization, aliasing, and shimmering details are occasionally noticed. Source element artifacts and film grain are sometimes evident. (Suzanne Hodges)
I have been reading WSR for about two years now and especially enjoy the product review section. Although the other articles and review sections are generally well-written and informative, the product reviews give me an unbiased look at new technologies and products. Being in the home theatre design field, I look at many different sources for product ups and downs and find your magazine a very valuable resource in this area. Keep up the great work!!
