5.0 out of 5 stars Belkin PureAV Siver Series DVI cable, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Extremely High quality DVI cable, recommended.

If I had to come up with a flaw it's that the cable is so thick its not very flexible, but thats due to the high quality of its construction.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVP-SR150, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, it has very good picture and sound quality.

There are however two main problems I've stumbled across:

1) Very noisy when playing DVD's, I can often hear it above the sound of the movie.

2) The SCART socket on the rear is so close to the audio output sockets that I cant have them both plugged in at the same time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, let down by the transfer, 28 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Days Of Thunder [1990] [DVD] (DVD)
I love this film, but I feel its been let down by the picture transfer.

The DVD says Widescreen 2.35:1, so I just assumed that meant anamorphic transfer for unsquishing onto a widescreeen TV...

...not so. It's 2.35:1 letterbox inside 4:3. So if you want to fill the screen on a 16:9 TV, you have to Zoom in - which inevitably lowers the picture resolution.

Great film, great soundtrack, but Paramount DVD or whoever manufactured it need to get their act in gear about the picture transfer.
