Pros: Nice picture, great sound, lots of extras and it's quiet....when it works.
Cons: Turns off randomly when playing DVDs and Blu-Rays. Upgrade process over network failed repeatedly forcing me to use a USB flash drive. Randomly has "snow" in picture on menus and in movies that can only be fixed by unplugging the unit and then plugging it back in. And it's sluggish in the menus.
Excellent Blu-Ray playback with dire wifi operation
22 December 2013
Summary: On the plus side the player is compact and attractively designed, playback of both dvd and blu-ray is first rate and at less than £50 it's hard to knock the price. The problems arise if you expect the unit to operate effectively as anything other than a disc player. The wifi connection is prone to dropping out assuming you can make it connect at all.
Summary: After unpacking this I was quite happy till I went to connect it to my TV ,the programing to connect this unit is a nightmare, after contacting this company I was asked to phone Toshiba helpline direct, well for a start the help line numbers at a prime cost so i didn't bother as we all know the time it takes. The unit was sent back for a refund.
Summary: While the quality of the playback is excellent, the blu-ray unit itself is one of the worst I've ever had. The remote control is next to useless. Unless you are within a metres range it barely works. The unit turns itself on automatically when I turn the TV on meaning I have to switch it off. Normally, this wouldn't be an issue but as the remote is rubbish, I have to go up and turn it off. Also it doesn't turn off right away.
Summary: I was pretty disappointed with this, so much so that I sent it back. I found it had a poor build quality and one five disks I tested it stutters on two whereas my existing player, tested at the same time to make sure the disks weren't at fault, played them effortlessly. I know you get what you pay for but this was not value for money.
Summary: Well...what a disappointment! I'm not a big critic and I really wanted to receive this blu ray player, be delighted with it and write a positive review. Unfortunately this player has immediately ruined my plan because from the moment you turn it on it makes the most incredible din! All other senses are overwhelmed by fan noise and "whirring" that you assume will die down after a few minutes...but it doesn't. Maybe it will die down after a few more plays then? Nope .
