Summary: I knew what I wanted by investing through other reviews, and I knew price. I was extremely pleased when I saw auction for such a low price. Quantity was 99, only 50 people bidding, so I didn't have to beat highest bidder since there were plenty to go around. I got a high quality DVD player at an incredible price (269.00, including shipping). Product was delivered in 5 days! I was amazed. DVD is excellent.
Pros: Product rated 5 stars, site rated 5 stars. Auction was ext fair and saved me hundreds!
Cons: There isn't anything bad I can say about the whole experience. Everything handled top rate!
Summary: The Toshiba SD-3109 is a very good DVD player. I went with it over the Sony versions because I had heard that Sony had problems keeping the sound and the lips in-sync. This DVD player can play Disney DVDs with only minor glitches. I purchased it from 800.com who were great. If you have to purchase something electronic then I highly suggest that you do so through this online store.
Pros: I have not experienced any problems in the playing of DVDs
Cons: It has two disk trays. This seems a little redundant to me.
Excerpt: I'm not a techy person, so knew very little about DVD players except that you put a disk that looks like a CD in a machine that looks like a CD player. And to be honest that's just about the level at which my knowledge still is. However from the non-technical point of view I can say what I have found useful and pointless for my average-non-techy-person needs. I have a Toshiba SD-3109 which has a 'Dual Disk System', i.e. two DVD drawers.
Excerpt: The 3109 is one of the first DVD players on the market to caddy two discs. It has great looks, an internal 5.1decoder, DTS out, N-2-2 spatializer and all those little unused gadgets like display dimmer, 3X zoom, slow motion, memory function and much much more. So Gadgets apart, what is this box really like? Well, at first the two functions that hit you are "hey it caddies two discs" & "5.1 internal decoder, not bad". Well, the dual disc caddy...
Excerpt: This is one of the best dvd players on the market, due to its features, style and all for a resonable price! The sd3109 is jam- packed with features such as its built in dolby 5.1 decoder (which means no need for an external decoder), its simultaneous playback of s-video and composite and the fact that the player can be modified to play back all regions. All this for a really fair price!
Summary: Hace ya dos años que mi amiga posee este reproductor y no puedo negar que la imagen es excelente, con muy buena definición y claridad aun en momentos muy oscuros. No tiene ningún problema en reproducir fielmente los pasajes cargados de información. Posee especificaciones técnicas sobresalientes, aunque es un poco pobre en sonido. Si ya se, tiene todo, Decodificador Dolby incorporado, HDDC y más, pero el sonido es algo pobre, con tendencia a metalizar los agudos.
Summary: zwar nicht mehr der neuste DVD-Player, aber trotzdem noch sehr gute Leistungen in Bild und Ton - Vorteile: Bild,Ton,Menüführung,3D Surround,HDCD - Nachteile: liest keine CD-R/CD-RW und MP3 CD´s,kein Progressiv-Scan
