I watch both and had no plans to replace my DVD's like most people. I find it laughable to replace a few hundred DVD's when upconvert technology is getting better and better. Now that I think about I doubt if Panasonic will inprove their lack of upconvert abilities. Its not in their best interest to have great upconvert side by side with BD. The overwhelming majority of consumers won’t think its worth paying $30+ for a movie or the extra few hundred up front.
The perspective of someone who frequents this site is much different from the perspective of average consumers. We are who we are that’s why we visit sites like these. J6P who sees good upconvert for the first time will be amazed and more then happy with it.Depends on perspective.
I would prefer that at least Sony include SACD support in all their BD players before they focus on upconverting.
