The Complete First Season Of CSI: Miami is brought to DVD in a seven-disc set. David Caruso leads a talented cast as criminologist Horatio Caine who tackles the daily lives and deaths in sun-drenched Miami locations. (Suzanne Hodges)
The series is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, with picture quality that varies from generally pleasing to somewhat mediocre. Fine details and textures are limited, and blurring or smearing is noticed at times, but other scenes offer satisfying sharpness. The picture can often have a thematically dark appearance, but contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. Edge enhancement can be a problem throughout the series, appearing especially annoying in higher contrast scenes. Pixel breakup and shimmering details can also be noticed. Still, the picture quality on these DVDs should be suitable for smaller home theatre displays. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #4 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review to get the facts on equipment and industry news. I started reading your magazine as a consumer and found your level of education and technical detail refreshing when compared to the audio/video mass I read before.Now I run my own custom home theatre company and find your mag invaluable in keeping up with the direction this industry is going. I also give a subscription as a gift to each of my customers knowing that they will be further educated and will enjoy their equipment even more.
