Upscaling isn't worth it.

Advantages: Clear crisp image, good sound qualities.
Disadvantages: Upscaling isn't very good
I bought this Blu Ray player because I was looking for a budget blu ray player that also upscales regular DVDs. Unfortunately, I have not noticed any difference between watching a dvd using a dvd player and the apparent upscaling of this blu ray player, despite changing the screen size from 16:9 to 4:3. If anything, all it did was make the screen size smaller. However, playing blu rays brings out the High definition capabilities of my television incredible well. I did not realise how clear my TV could be. The blu ray player is very quiet and can be run for hours on end without getting too hot, which is a big benefit. It also looks sleek. The 1080p resolution enables a bold and bright picture, which brings the film to life. I recommend watching HD action films as it brings out the best in them. The player also enables the sound to be much clearer than my dvd player. I would recommend this player to anyone on a budget as I think it is worth the £70 i bought mine for. But if you can stretch to slightly more, other players have considerably better upscaling capabilities.
Summary: Good blu ray player, but rubbish at upscaling.
