Summary: My SD2700 has always worked fine. My only complaint is that it will not play the DVD+R format (probably because it was built before that was invented?) so I have to go buy DVD-R and rerecord my home movies onto that.
Summary: We had this dvd play for less than a year and had to send it out to be repaired. The audio completely went out. About 6 to 8 months later, it went out again. Before that, if you could get the darn thing to turn on, you couldn't get it to shut off. It was a total waste of money and I have totally lost faith in Toshiba dvd players. The next Toshiba we got was the same way, and not even the same model. Don't waste your money!
Summary: Like a lot of the other reviews the sound went dead and nothing we tried has helped. This thing must have been built with junk components. How else can one explain the high frequency of defective players. Toshiba just lost another customer.
Great... Until it dies suddenly & for no apparent reason...

Summary: Add me to the list of poor [people] who owned this product for less than 2 years (but just long enough for the warranty to run out) before expiriencing a complete breakdown. While watching a typical no-thrills DVD I was suddenly left with no sound. Imagine my joy. Choose another unit unless you plan on upgrading within the 2-year lifecycle that many of us have already discovered.
Summary: I have owned my DVD player for less than 2 years, and this weekend it died. I pushed the stop button and everything locked up. I can now join the mass of people that have had nothing but trouble with this unit. Joy for me!
Summary: If you've checked the specs you know that this unit has component output, but not progressive scan or MP3 playback. I'll concentrate on how it performs based on 18 months of use since I bought it from Amazon.com. I've used component cabling for video and optical cables for the audio. With this setup the quality of both video and audio is excellent. That's the good news for the player. The bad news is that occasionally the player has some problems.
Summary: Horrible! Would have recommended it until today. Sound completely dies for no reason in the middle of a movie. Tried rerouting the cables, using new cables, changing the settings - no luck. Background: Bought it brand new less than 2-years ago, *extremely* light use - one movie a week tops. Picture is still great but that doesn't help. I even have a matching Toshiba TV but now the DVD player is useless....
