and the results are pretty good. As far as I am aware though the quality of the upscaling chip can vary widely so its a good idea to see it in action if at all possible.

Any HDTV will have better image quality with a DVD movie than an old tube SDTV because of the native resolution. HDTV is automatically upscaling the image, plus it is displaying the image progressively (smooth edges). Standard CRT (Tube) TV displays the image in interlaced, which means you will get jagged edges and not a fluid movie.
Also, if you can connect a DVD player to an HDTV via component, DVI or HDMI, you are going to get a higher image quality than your standard SDTV.
