Solid as a rock

Aaron K., Newegg
16 January 2007
  • Summary: I use this player every day to watch DivX TV shows, most nights it gets left on for 6 or 7 hours at a time overnight, it's never had a problem. I bought this unit because it's a cheap Toshiba that plays .avi files, because I use it so much I wanted a unit that was cheap enough to be disposable.
  • Pros: Plays all the DivX files I've thrown at it.
  • Cons: have to jump through a couple of hoops to get the component hookups to work.

Disappointing Product

Anonymous, Newegg
2 December 2006
  • Summary: I originally thought this was a great buy. After owning it for about a year I am disappointed. It's features are lacking and it is not reliable. I should have paid a little bit more and gotten something worthwhile. I would not recommend this product.
  • Pros: This DVD player is attractive, small, and cheap. It plays both CDs and DVDs.
  • Cons: I have been very gentle to this player and it has ceased to function. I cannot even get it to open any longer. It does not remember where you stopped watching a movie and it inserts a brief gap between each track when playing a CD.

Nice DVD player, but don't be fooled.

Luke R., Newegg
28 November 2006
  • Summary: I gave it 4 stars because it is a nice DVD player, just not the one I thought I was getting.
  • Pros: Nice slim design, has all the basic functions you need. Plays CDs, Divx, and regular DVDs. A nice DVD player.
  • Cons: This is the Toshiba SD-3990 that only plays region 1 dvds. There is another SD-3990 brand that has an NTSC/PAL converter and plays multiregion DVDs. Be sure that the description has it playing multiregion DVDs otherwise you'll get this kind.

Ditch This

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2006
  • Pros: -Brand name - thought this would help -Menuing system is good -Slim design
  • Cons: Most of my dixv's will stutter or stop, and this is on cd-r media. Shows that play fine on my liteon or PC will not play, the player acts as if the media was dirty. Anyhow I'll have to replace it as it is not suitable for the job and Toshiba has no updates posted. ONLY dvd-r!

TOSHIBA SD-3990 DVD Player

Anonymous, Newegg
4 November 2006
  • Summary: Remember to plug in the yellow composite cable first, go into the menu, and change the input source to component or progressive scan, otherwise nothing will come up on the screen.
  • Pros: Plays just about every format you can throw at it, divx, mpeg, burned DVD-R's, and its really thin.
  • Cons: Drive tray is a little flimsy but then again, what DVD player isn't?

Great

  • Summary: IMPORTANT!! HOOK THIS UP THROUGH STANDARD RED/WHITE/YELLOW component video FIRST, then follow the manual to set the system for YPBPR. Otherwise you might not get picture!
  • Pros: Good quality video, will browse through folders on data disks, so far has played every retail dvd flawlessly, played really poorly transferred imports with only one glitch (vs. many more on a computer) and is excellent in support for avi/divx/xvid video.
  • Cons: GUI could use a bit of work, but still pleasant enough. I don't really like the remote but I have a universal, so doesn't matter to me.

Cheap and amazing player

kimchung p., Newegg
27 July 2006
  • Summary: Don't let this player run out of stock before you get one
  • Pros: This player is sleek and is small. The player can absolutely do anything while playing divx/xvid including adjusting the brightness and contrast without clicking it from the TV for adjustment. The player does very well in making picture look the same in a zoom-in. I love everything about this player
  • Cons: It doesn't say the time on the player since it only text out the media file is playing, but you have to press display in order to view the time.

Outstanding value

Leo W., Newegg
17 June 2006
  • Pros: Excellent player at a great price! I have a model 3980 on #2 TV that I paid twice the price for last year. This unit does even better for a single DVD player. The NewEgg processing for delivery was incredibly fast on this shipment. Nice change.
  • Cons: Single DVD movie playing. But then, how many 2 hours movies are you going to be watching at onetime???? (Gotta get off the couch once in a while) Playing music video's is another question.
