Summary: I've had this DVD player for 2 years and have watched hundreds of movies so far. Its behind in the technology curve now, but its reliability and quality are good indicators of the whole Toshiba line. I'm particularly impressed with the picture quality when matched to my Toshiba television set using the compositve video outputs - significantly better than the standard coax output and S-video output. The one down side is that it doesn't play any VCD format disks.
Summary: Toshiba is the best quality of electronics i have ever purchased and i have a laptop that started me with toshiba. we were so satisfyed with our satalite that we went out to get a dvd player that was reasonable and great quality so we bought a toshiba SD-2109 and it is so fast and easy to use that when we go out to get new electronics we look for Toshiba.
Summary: The picture is excellent, except for an occasional slight leaking of horizontal lines, such as in scenes with a wide staircase or Venetian blinds. I love the wide screen format. One rental disk skipped and froze, but I think it was scratched. Matrix played without a hitch. The audio is excellent. The remote is amazingly small, but I quickly got used to pressing with a fingernail.
Summary: I haven't had any problems with this player at all. It's performs well at what I bought it to do. Give me high quality audio and video. The only reason I give the review a 4 star rating instead of a 5 is because of the extremely small remote. Not a big deal but it is kinda hard to memorize button positions when your single finger covers 2-3 buttons. If you can stand that, then I suggest you buy. I don't see how you could lose.
Summary: The disk transport makes a *lot* of noise playing CDs, but is quiet playing DVDs (different speeds?). There is a noticable sync buzz on the analog audio outputs. My 10+ year old CD player sounds noticably better, and I'm not an Audiophile. The picture is great and the zoom is nice and Amazon's price is amazing. I returned mine and got a Sony S530D which is slient playing CDs, has no sync buzz and sounds just as good as my old CD player.
Summary: great DVD player, however if you have an "older TV (1992) and do not have original remote and/or button to swap from TV to Audio you are in trouble....it took about 6 hours to get someone at RCA to answer the phone --once that happened they were very helpful. If you have an"older" set without a TV/VIDEO button on the set, try setting TC to channel 00, 90, 91, 92, 93 or 94 -- according to RCA one of them work -- it is better than a new set...
Summary: This DVD player was rated as one of the best in its class.It's one of the cheapest on the market but you can't tell that it is cause of the superb audio and visual performances.Combine it with a Philips Widescreen and a Harman Kardon AVR 65 DD and you will get a new experience of watching movies.The only thing that is negative may be that it doesn't take CDR's but for the money that differs in price between the larger players, you can easily buy a separate CD player.So I...
Summary: Great and easy DVD player to operate. Picture & Sound are perfect.You get 5.1 Dolby sound, zoom levels (great for the annoying wide screen versions)... It doesn't play my CD-Rs (bummer), but then I did not buy it to play CDS.
Summary: Based much upon the preceding evaluations, and finding that the Toshiba 2109 was the entry-level DVD player recommended by a well-regarded retailer serving this region, I bought a unit, and agree, the 2109's quite good at what it does. DVD-only titles, such as the "Brazil" edition from Criterion, conveniently available from our host, Amazon, increasingly justify such DVD-player purchases for motion picture enthusiasts.
Summary: I've had this player for six months. It certainly does the job quite well, S-Video output is great, menu access is speedy. One frill that's turned out more useful than I expected is the "zoom"; reading credits on our 27" screen is much easier when we zoom in a bit! The remote is a definite bummer. The old (and now higher end) Toshiba remote is terrific and "ergonomic". Well, they still call this an "ergonomic" remote, but it is no such thing.
