DVD Talk reviews the low-cost Oppo OPDV971H DVD player with HD upconverting.
"So, what's so special about the Oppo? While previous low-cost players from brands such as Bravo, Liteon, and Momitsu have actively courted the videophile consumer, these units are often plagued by poor build quality, glitchy playback, and (a common Achilles' heel) lousy progressive scan deinterlacing. Oppo Digital has attempted to address these problems in their player with solid components, excellent customer service, and the inclusion of Faroudja DCDi deinterlacing. Faroudja is one of the best deinterlacing solutions available today, and is renowned for its ability to properly assemble progressive frames out of complex film-based, video, and mixed-source signals without ugly combing artifacts or "jaggies". Combine this with excellent scaling quality, a direct-digital DVI connection, and as a special bonus the ability to make the player region-free, and you can see why HDTV owners might have some cause for excitement.
