Default hd-E1 or HD-Xe1

Hi All
Ok, so my order for HD-Xe1 fell through due to completely crap internet companies.
I can get a E1 easy enough in Shops but the XE1, it seems i have to order.

So my question is, do i need an Xe1.
I have a 37" 1080p LCD TV. I've heard that there is no real difference between the 1080i and 1080p.
Upscaling DVD is important but i've heard they both do brilliant upscalling.

Also, it will tide me over until the dual format players our out in force and cheap.

Please help, advice would be great.

Thanks

The EP10 should also be released soon, it is the european equivalent of the a20.

It will be a halfway house between the e1 and the xe1 in that it will also do the upscaling you want and be 1080p but be cheaper than the xe1.

Maybe something for you to consider before you plunge into buying either of them?

Have a look on the website below

The HD-EP10 is available from dabs.com for 336 and is released on 14th May.

Much better value for money.
