Best model for DVI Input


If you have an older HD television with DVI input instead of the newer HDMI type connection this is the DVD player for you. First some background, I have a 55" Sony rear projection set with DVI input. In case you are not 'buzzword' tech savvy, ...

Wonderful rich film-like picture. No DVI bugs.

Darker, film-like image, tricky setup, complicated remote.

Nice design, 1080i Output for a great picture,easy to use.

Have to disable HDCP to use component outputs for High Def.

Product Specifications

Samsung's HD841 is a must for anyone with an HDTV display. It converts to hi def standard DVDs from 480i to HDTV-level 720p or 1080i resolution right at the source. By up-converting content in the DVD player - rather than several steps away in the TV - the HD841 creates HDTV-level images that have fewer artifacts and less noise than with other hi def conversion methods. Then it sends that HD signal directly to your TV through a purely digital DVD output - with no analog conversion.
