Oppo DV-970HD6. Oppo DV-970HD
Editors' rating: 7.7
The good: Excellent image quality; upconverts to 720p and 1080i output via HDMI; plays SACD, DVD-Audio, and DivX; flexible customization options, including aspect-ratio control; HDMI cable included; budget price.
The bad: The low-end look and feel bespeak its cheap price tag.
The bottom line: The Oppo DV-970HD delivers some of the best value for your DVD dollar that we've seen on upconverting players in terms of features and performance.
