Summary: The $103 sale price is why I bought the Toshiba player but I wish now that I had paid more and bought a different brand. It is not worth paying someone to repair it so I am going to replace it with a different brand (my 19" Toshiba LCD HDTV is having problems, too).
Cons: The machine stopped working after less than two years of moderate use. After inserting a Blu-ray disc, the machine makes a noise that sounds like the read head is repeatedly seeking, and then the player reports "Disk Error" and tells me to eject the disc. I tired playing a Blu-ray movie disc that...
Summary: I can not play my homemade movies with this because I made them into DVD-R DVD-Video discs. So, unless you only want to play Blu-ray and non-recordable media DVD-Video discs, buy some other brand.
Pros: Inexpensive (about $100 when on sale)
Cons: !. Noisy during operation (compared to my two other brand Blu-ray players) 2. Slower to load (compared to my other brand Blu-ray players) 3. Poor remote control layout. E.g., the stop button is the same size and shape as the play button which is located directly above it, making it easy to accide...
Summary: I had bought this and sent it to my sister. The very first time they started watching the photos from their Memory Card, they saw a photo and then put that on StandBy. After a while smoke started coming out of the player.
Summary: There is no way to update the firmware though the internet, only via disc. The wonderful Toshiba firmware section only has updates for televisions. Wonderful. Terrible.
Pros: Picture and sound are blu-ray quality
Cons: Slow No Firmware available, will not play current discs Slow Does not play current discs? What is the point of owning a blu-ray player that has been our for months and is still on the terrible original firmware that doesn't work? SLOW Doesn't play new discs. Smell what I'm standing in?
Summary: I love Toshiba, but this product has really make me cautious about buying anymore items... It's not even really a toshiba design, they just stamped their name on some other companies garbage.
Cons: Watched 5 Movies on it , now the hdmi port doesn't work, Toshiba TV says "Invalid HDMI format". I have replaced all the HDMI Cables to verify it' snot the cables. The Composite port still works, but is usesless for HDMI.
Summary: NO more Toshiba, was hoping for a comback agaisnt the giant Sony, but their products have failed mah.
Pros: Upscales dvds ok, havent compaird to other ones though. Have had play back speed problems once in while though.
Cons: Just got done have-way through watching my very first blu-ray movie and the speed is to fast for regular play. Nothing can be done except letting it cool down, i think the CPU is being taxed to much is my guess. Pass on this one, its not worht it. My Toshiba dvd recorder does the same thing,this ...
Summary: Purchased this player for $100.00 on black Friday and thought I was getting a great deal. What I didn't check was the warranty most offer a 1 year, Toshiba only offers a 90 day limited warranty.
