    The Pioneer DV-LX50 is the company's latest high-end DVD spinner, which typically comes equipped with everything bar the kitchen sink. And although it can't deliver proper high-definition pictures, you'll be hard pressed to find an HD deck that can play as many media formats as the Pioneer DV-LX50.

    Until now, 1080p upscaling has been reserved for expensive high-end DVD decks, but it's just become a lot more affordable. The Pioneer DV-600AV costs just £150 but comes with full 1080p, 1080i and 720p upscaling, and more besides

    We've perhaps become a little blasé about budget DVD players, but this deck from Pioneer deserves nothing but your full attention. It will obviously appeal to those who don't want to spend a fortune to get a quality experience

    Until now, 1080p upscaling has been reserved for high-end heavyweight DVD decks, but now you can find it on £100 players such as this one.This is made possible by the inclusion of an HDMI terminal.

    It may be expensive, but Pioneer has gone a long way to justify the price hike. From the lustre of the black finish to the rigid build-quality, this looks and feels like a prestige product. It matches the best around spec-for-spec and adds in a CI slot and USB interface.

    It is only about 18 months since manufacturers started putting Freeview tuners and HDMI outputs into digital recorders, but already it's almost routine. Pioneer's machines have usually been versatile, but they only had that magic combination from late 2006.

    Sub-£100 DVD decks are all well and good, but often light on features. If you can raise your budget a little, you get more for your money - as shown by this £130 DV-696AV. Its credentials include DVD-Audio and SACD playback

    Video upscaling is one of the key selling points in DVD's arsenal now, a stop-gap measure until Blu-ray and HD DVD take over. This Pioneer model performs the visual magic via its HDMI output, but this is no one-trick pony.

    The high-definition double act of Blu-ray and HD DVD may be looming large on the horizon, but rumours about the imminent demise of bog-standard DVD appear to be highly exaggerated.
