Summary: I'm blown away by the picture quality of this unit.DiscoveryHD recently showed a piece on a total eclipse in Antarctica which featured jaw-dropping picture quality. I look foreward to buying,at some point,an HD DVD recorder which would justify buying a $100+ HDMI cable ;-) In short,with this unit,you pay for what you get...and you get what you pay for!
Pros: Picture Quality!!! Array of inputs and features.
Cons: Size and weight,complexity of controls and owner's manual.
