The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows solid black levels, but shadow delineation can be relatively poor. Generally the image has a very flat appearance. Color fidelity is adequate with fleshtones that look fairly natural. There are many instances where the picture can show solid detail, but occasionally resolution can be lacking, with moments where the imagery looks somewhat soft. Pixel breakup can be recognized from time to time, and while edge enhancement is minor, there are times when it can be noticed. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #67 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is by far the most in-depth and comprehensive publication in its genre. Readers of all levels of expertise can increase their knowledge and enhance their enjoyment of the Home Theatre experience. Widescreen Review is one of the few, if not the only publication, that actually affects manufacturer’s decisions in regards to their product lines. I believe one of the reasons DTS decoding is so common in consumer equipment is due to the efforts of Gary Reber and his associates. Additionally, the magazine has heralded the importance of a properly calibrated video monitor. Consumers who are so inclined now have the information needed in order for their equipment, from entry level to state-of-the-art, to be the best that it can be. Add to this the software reviews, articles on emerging technologies, and meticulous equipment reviews, and you have a magazine that sets the standard for others to emulate. This is why I read Widescreen Review.
