Summary: This is the Euro version of the Toshiba HD A35. I've had mine for just over a month now and I think it is an amazing player. It upscales regular DVD superbly and it's HD DVD playback is flawless. It's true that loading times are a little slower than regular DVD, but surely everyone by now knows this is the case - these players are far more complex than regular DVD. Think of it like this; you wouldn't expect your PC to come on instantly, would you?
