Great DVD Player

David B., Newegg
13 February 2006
  • Summary: Toshiba doesn't make the best laptops, but their dvd players are great.
  • Pros: Wanted to buy my family a name brand DVD player without shelling out a lot of money and this was the choice. Worked perfectly out of the box, setup was a breeze and the remote looks great.
  • Cons: I'm missing the original remote for my tv so I can't get the imput button to work on the universal remote, thus not being able to hook straight to the tv. The color in on some older dvds I have fade from dark to light when hooked up though the vcr. It happens with all dvd players though.

  • Pros: Sleek, plenty of features.
  • Cons: Buggy, freezes now and then and you need to unplug the unit for a bit to reset it. Not as good as some models reading burned disks but okay. Price was cheap enough.

worst elextronic purchase I have made

Kelly G., Newegg
26 December 2005
  • Summary: I used to trust Toshiba but the last several items have me severely questioning the bran, and I am checking out other Brans more closely
  • Pros: size
  • Cons: slowly stopped playing movies afyer a very short time...numerous stoppages and skips even after cleaning. when yo push the open/eject button, 9 out of 10 times the door opens one inch and then closes...you actually have to grab the door and hit open again to get a disk out.

Excellent DVD Player

Donald C., Newegg
23 November 2005
  • Summary: Ordered the DVD Unit on 11/22/05 and received it on 11/23/05. I've played 6 DVD's so far, and all were flawless. Unit is really compact and buttons/controls all logically and conveniently laid out. The Remote is also logical, of good quality and easy to use.
