Denon DVD-1740 review


The 1740 brings 1080p upscaling, a cuter design and new green credentials to Denon's already banging entry-level DVD party

A few missing features aside, the DVD-1740 is nigh-on unbeatable DVD player for performance-per-pound.

Denon DVD-1740 review


Performance comes first with this tasty 1080p player

Excellent picture, sound and build

No DVD-A, SACD or USB port

If you care only about AV performance, this is an excellent purchase, but it is possible to get more for the money

Denon DVD-1740


Denon is one of my personal favorites. The company has a philosophy of keeping clutter out at all times, and delivering the goods the way we like it: pristine and top-notch. This reputation precedes them, and their products seem to get better with each...

The images had depth and saturation in the colors, while blacks and darker shades were well distinguishable. Though in this same department, at times I felt the blacks could have been better, as this is required by HD sources of content such as...

Denon DVD-1740


Good design and ease of use

Bought unit for its upscaling to 1080p capabilities - but I could not see any difference with my old Toshiba ( not upscaling ) when displayed on my Toshiba 1080p LCD TV . So is upscaling just a gimic?

Connectivity is excellent, as is the overall design and performance of the player. Multi region functionality is seamless and reliable. Integrates well with other equipment in terms of looks and performance. Setup and user interfaces are simple to...

DivX compatibility would be perfect if it was coupled to a front mounted USB port for reading files from memory drives. Remote is too big and clumsy, and also the wrong colour! One or two functions are not listed in the user manual. Pity it's not...
