Toshiba HD-XA2 HD DVD Player

AVguide

  • Summary: Despite the major improvements in Blu-ray discs and players lately, I have to say that, based on my experience with the Toshiba HD-XA2, I still think HD DVD looks better. Not that Blu-ray looks bad these days—far from it—but after reviewing several Blu-ray players, I found myself being drawn more deeply into the HD-XA2’s high-def image.

  • Conclusion: The HD-XA2 improves upon its predecessor in almost every way, yet regular DVD videos still exhibit too many jagged edges.
  • Pros: Supports 1080p video output. Excellent image quality with HD DVD movies. Stylish new design. Improved disc-loading times.
  • Cons: Long start-up time. No 1080p24 output. Jagged edges visible when playing DVD video.

HD DVD was first to the market, beating Blu-ray by a few months. Despite a big shot in the arm from Sony’s Playstation 3 and Microsoft’s $179 Xbox 360 add-on HD DVD player, high-def discs have yet to explode the way that DVD did when that format was first launched.

  • Excerpt: Toshiba's second-gen players promise to maintain the pure picture and sound performance that won its first-gen players universal praise, while improving on the disc access and ergonomic issues that made them the butt of many jokes.
