Summary: well it dragged his ass into the 21st century pmsl :D!!! anyway it works well to be honest and I got it because its cinavia free and zone free with cfw so was well worth the £40 we paid for it yay ;) picture is great on his Toshiba 1080p hdtv looks really nice but lack of dts-hd master and dolby true-hd 7.1 is only draw back weve actually found but like I said its for dad and not me :D and theyre sort of happy with it just clueless with teck :(
Summary: This machine does everything I need it to do, especially playing videos from my hard drive in full 1080p. The problem is it freezes during playback and the only way to correct it, is to unplug it from the mains. Pretty annoying whilst watching a good movie. I've researched and many people have had this issue with Toshiba blu-ray players. It's a shame as I really liked the product.
Summary: Has a USB software upgrade facility so getting the Aussie foirmware from the web lets you into a menu to set the DVD region to 0 for all region playing, and also can select BluRay zones (though I don't have the need for that.) Only has an HDMI outlet though, so I can't get the best out of my digital projector - coulddo more with an analogue CMY output too.
Summary: I must say I'm quite impressed with this little budget player. OK, the display looks a little cheap with its retro digits, but apart from that I can find little to criticise. But its coup de grace is the ability to be flashed to enable not only multi-region DVD playback but Bluray too. One of the few players that will do both. For anyone who has bought this player or is considering it, the (very simple) instructions can be found on the AV Forums here - [...
Excerpt: Let me start with a quick note - I'm (obviously) a woman, and so this review will be written from woman's perspective, please don't stone me for not stating all the technical details, if I didn't mention them, that means I don't really care about them. We have owned a 3D TV for some months, however we were putting off buying a Blu Ray Player for a while, waiting for a good promotion as we were in no hurry.
Summary: Well after my last two 3d players broke on me one being a Sony and the other being a Panasonic I done a little search to see which player would be the best. Upon searching I found this little bundle of joy which not only had good reviews but it was so easy to make region free via an official firmware upgrade.
Summary: This would be a perfect blu-ray player if it didn't have a massive flaw... Enabling the multi-angle or picture-in-picture mark makes an icon appear in the corner of the screen every time a multi-angle or PiP scene is available. It stays on until the scene is over. It would be logical to assume that disabling that option in the player's Set Up menu would simply prevent the icon from appearing... Well, it does not!
Summary: Hi, Actually i wanted blue ray that can play all region Blur-ray + DVD. Bought BDX3200 and upgraded the firmware with old firmware version(the one that comes with this model does not allow playing multi-region blueray. Search BDX3200 on avs forum for old version). Installed old firmware and can change region codes. I used it only for few mins and works great.
Summary: I got this slightly cheaper Toshiba player instead of a 2012 Samsung Model about £10 more because this one had better reviews but I'm not completely sold on it. Well done to the seller first of all. Just chose free delivery and it arrived within 48 hours. Havent tried the 3D function yet so cant comment on that. I dont own any 3D glasses for my TV yet.
