Target PC heeft een review klaarliggen van de Pioneer DVD-104S 10X DVD speler in IDE uitvoering. Hieronder wat meer info over zijn performance, lees de rest hier.
WinDVD2000 is a great package because it has nifty features like four 2-speaker modes, not counting 4,5 and 6 speaker modes. When the picture quality was compared to other DVD programs, such as the OEM Zoran player, WinDVD2K was dramatically better. Iron Giant was a fabulous test for surround effects as the standard date movies (chick flicks) donít lean towards big cracks and booms to take your mind off of what youíre really watching (your date!). In wide screen mode the picture quality was flawless at 1024x768x32-bit true color monitor resolution. Zero dropped frames, freezes, digital artifacts, or anti-aliasing jaggies.
Next, I viewed one of the greatest chick flicks everóMeet Joe Black. The outdoor scenes gave a moderately realistic impression of being outdoors. In this case, the DVD format showed its aging NTSC limitations. Since HDTV can be easily obtained (at least in my area) and broadcasts of its type can be viewed nightly. I have serious reservations as to the life span of any NTSC based gear. Be that as it may, flesh tones were very true, especially in 32-bit color. At one point, with all the lights off, I thought I was watching the big screen.
