This a terrible deal for the old generation Toshiba rebadged, you can get the new gen Tosh EP30 for £179 delivered with 7 HD DVD's, its a no brainer. Voted ice cold sorry

Yeh was thinking that myself, but for £84.96 plus P&P and a 30 day moneyback, it may be ideal for people thinking about seeing what all the fuss is about?

Heres the link to the New 1080P 3rd gen tosh I posted the other day, I know you have to buy in one go but its a much better player and deal IMHO

General opinion surrounding the launch on QVC of this budget player was that to succed it would need to undercut the EP30 by at least £50 so say £100-£130, at the price they have chosen its more likely to put people off adopting HD

I bought a Samsung 1080i upscaling DVD player a few weeks ago & the difference in picture quality is barely noticible.

When a suitable 1080P Full HD player comes along at a realistic price then I will upgrade straight away. but anyone with a good quality DVD player already will notice little difference & besides you can get a samsung or phillips (See here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/129460/philips-dvp5960-upscaling-dvd-playe/all/deals/hot/ ) for alot less. :thumbsup:

Also arent "Venturer" a budget brand?

Not quite sure how an upscaling SD dvd player is relevant, this thread is about a HD DVD player:thumbsup:

HOW MUCH!!!! - IF you want an HD player buy ANYthing apart from this one - Toshiba deals seems one of the best..

You are able to claim an additional 5 free HD DVD's with this package. Check the QVC website as it does state the form is in the box!!

I know it's not the best spec machine but it's well worth it if you want to spread your payments

Point taken.. I guess I didnt say what I meant clearly.

Im refering to the 1080i rather than 1080P (True HD) I was using my 1080i player as an example, if this only outputs 1080i then I would stick with an upscaling player myself untill 1080p players become more afordable.

I understand its a HD DVD player but if its only outputing 1080i its not full HD anyway? An upscaling player that outputs 1080P surely would be a better & much cheaper option even if it only upscales SD DVDs.

It doesnt matter as its been voted "Ice Cold" anyway! :)

What is the deal with the two-payment system?

If a product is £170 on QVC and I choose the two-payment system, do I literally only pay £85 twice? How often? Any catches?

Its just a way to spread the payment for those who maybe dont have the money to buy outright, its a nice option for those buying from QVC they do it on alot of items. I understand the first payment is taken when you order & then a month later the second payment is taken.

No catches that im aware of just a more flexible way to purchase.

Even if an upscaling player outputs 1080p it will never look close to an HD source (HD DVDs or blu-rays), even if the HD source was output at 720p it would still look streets ahead of any upscaled DVD. The difference between 1080i and 1080p is all but impossible to see (if using an LCD TV) as there is no such thing as a 1080i LCD display. LCDs are progressive by there very nature so if you have an LCD with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 (1080p) and feed it a 1080i signal then the TV will deinterlace the signal and display it as 1080p. If you feed an LCD TV with a resolution of 1280 by 720 (720p) with a 1080i signal then the signal will be deinterlaced and downscaled and all you will see is a 720p display (in other words you might as well just feed it a 720p signal as that's all you can see).

In short, an upscaling DVD player is a big pile of poo when compared to an actual HD player (that is playing HD encoded discs).
