Scott Wilkinson casts his critical gaze at the V, Inc. Bravo D1 DVD player to find out just how good a DVI connection can be on a machine that sells for around $200. "The D1 is by no means perfect, but it occupies a unique place in the vanguard of the digital future, and so deserves a serious look," says SW.
