Summary: My wife had a deal at Bloomingdales: "Spend [x amount of money] get this [Toshiba SD2300] DVD player for [y amoiunt of dollars]." So we did, and I got the player. I was told that the Toshiba players were good, and at the [money] I spent, I figured if I was wrong, then so what, at least I got a good price on my first DVD. Well, the good news is that the player is really good, with excellent picture, sound quality, and features.
Summary: I bought this because several on-line reviews rated it very highly for the price. I have had it for about a month and am stunned by the visual quality. I can't say much for the audio (no receiver, just TV :( ). All discs I have played have had ZERO trouble, just pop it in and play it. I highly recommend this product.
AWESOME picture and sound, super ZOOM, and NUON games...

Summary: The most impressive feature of Toshiba's SD-2300 is the absolutely GORGEOUS picture it creates on my old 27-inch TV set (with S-video input). Blacks are black, brights are bright, colors are vibrant. This player makes even the worst of DVDs look beautiful. And, of course, the audio (through my TV's speakers) is excellent also. Another great feature is the ZOOM, which will allow you to make widescreen discs fill the entire screen with minimal loss of picture quality.
