Excerpt: Into The Blu ========= Since Blu-Ray has become the standard for high definition optical media the prices of the players has been quite rapidly declining. It's now possible to get a decent Blu-Ray player at sub £100 prices.
Summary: Great player, excellent picture & sound quality. DVD picture upscaling is amazingly good, and I am rediscovering my old DVD collection. If you just want a good 2D Blue Ray player to replace a DVD player this is perfect.
Summary: Looked for a basic Blue ray player to go with HD TV recently purchased. As the TV was Toshiba it was logical to get a player of the same make. By doing so, am able to use the same remote. As others have reported, it is a bit noisy when loading/unloading, but when playing you don't hear it working.
Summary: I had some problems at first as I couldnt get this to work, it worked out to be the HDMI cable it was not strong enough, I purchesed a better one and oh my god it was amazing, the set up was so simple, I have only played a film on it at the moment but the quality is great
Summary: This is a multi voltage machine 110-240v and is straight out of the box capable of playing region 2 DVDs or region B Bluray on both NTSC and PAL TVs . It is perfect for watching European sourced content in the USA .I bought one while visitng UK but you can have one shipped for not much more.
Summary: Note this player doesn't have built in wifi. And some reviews say it has no built in memory - while another review said it had 256mb. Either way it's a great bluray player. I only have Toy Story 3.
Excellent Blu ray player but alas no Toslink/optical out

Summary: My first foray into Blu Ray. I stuck with Toshiba as I have a Toshiba VCR which I've had for 11 years and also my DVD player is a Toshiba, which is around 10 years old. So I at last took the Blu Ray plunge and so far so good - though it has only been a day and problems could occur!
Summary: i bought this for its mkv playback, which it does extremely well, either from the usb port or burnt to a disk. ive no idea why the reviewer couldnt play any mkvs but ive watched dozens with no problems whatsoever....
