I purchased the Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player to play movies on DVDs mounted on a high definition SONY TV via HDMI wire. I was looking for basic functionality that is effective at an excellent price, which is specifically what I accomplished with this unit.
Splendid is not too disdainful an adjective to spell it out the efficiency of the Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player in its near-magical upscaling of SD-quality (480p) video to virtual 1080p HI-DEF. The key is with an HDMI connection between your player as well as your TV. I’m no engineer but I’ve the sense that this high-bandwidth connection standard is important in the final product.
Maybe like you, I’ve an HD-capable TV (1080p resolution) but a huge collection of SD-level (480p) DVDs, mostly old films. When I play a 1950s black-and-white traditional like “The Misfits” through the Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player, it upscales the picture on my TV to the level that for the very first time I can identify the make-up caked on Marilyn’s face, and the lines of exhaustion and age that present through Clark Gable’s smile.
We’ve all seen today’s stars in HD, but to view Jean Harlow at better picture quality which has existed during her period or since, could be a transformative experience.
Via HDMI wire, this Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player was recognized immediately by my current-generation Sony TV. It’s a 65″ display, and even so the level of detail the Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player provides such a large screen, with just an SD-quality (480p) picture to begin with, is usually a testament to the engineering talents that went into the product.
Overall, the Sony DVPSR510H DVD Player works well. The tray moves smoothly, the standard of the screen is certainly good, the remote works well. This is a definite must buy for if you still have that oldie in the closet.
