The New Wave of DVD Players

Posted: January 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

There are currently three types of DVD players on the market today. Regular DVD, up converting DVD, and blu ray DVD. There are some basic differences between each player, so let me tell you a little more about them.

Most people are familiar with the regular DVD player. This player will play regular movies and also some simple audio CDS. However, if you have a new high definition television, I would not recommend using this type of player. You will not get the HD resolution you want from this type of player. What’s the point of buying an HD TV if you are not going to watch things in HD? To get HD out of movies you have two options listed below.

Up Converting DVD players are DVD players that still only play regular movies but they up convert the quality to HD quality. This would be the most inexpensive way to get close to the HD quality your looking for. These players start around $30-$40. However, these players will NOT play the blu ray discs that are becoming more and more popular. This player will give you 720P resolution, where blu ray will give you 1080P resolution.

Blu ray disc players came to the market with a hefty price of $1200. Now you can pick up one of these DVD players for around $100. In my opinion, if you watch movies and you own an HD TV, go with a blu ray disc player. This is the ultimate quality. You get the highest resolution at 1080P and it makes a huge difference in picture quality. One major advantage to this player is that it will also play regular movies and up converts them to HD! So that means if you already have a collection of hundreds of DVD movies, you can still play them in the blu ray disc player. It is well worth it if you’re a movie fan.
