I didn' t say they were as good, I just pointed out it makes it look good. Have you seen a regular DVD player running on an HDTV? It' s horrible. An upconvert DVD player makes a huge difference. Again, not as good as HD-DVD or Blu-Ray but still great quality.

The PS3 upconverts DVDs and it looks like ass compared to Blu-ray movies. To be fair though I am less than two feet away from my 24inch monitor, so I see everything.

It depends on the TV for how regular DVDs look. They look great on mine and a few others I' ve used. I' ve seen a few tvs that they look pretty bad on too. An upconverter does the same thing as the tv does. Some tvs just have shitty scalers. DVD upconverters are just a marketing scam to fool nubs.
