The price of the Samsung DVD-HD941 has recently dropped from $299 to $199. The new 950 is also $199. Both play the new SACD format, which the 841 and 850 do not. The 941 uses Faroudja technology. There is no mention of such technology in the 950, so I suppose the upconversion method is proprietary to Samsung.
I just bought the 941 when it went on sale to use with the 1080p Samsung HDTV that I ordered thaat I am impatiently awaiting.
ok i just bought my 50" panasonic dlp finally...now i've been researching new dvd players with upconverters. anyone review the line of dvd players out right now? any suggestions would be great, thanks!
