Excerpt: This may seem a little odd, but I've never had a DVD player set up in my living room, until now. My kids each had DVD players as well as portable DVD players, my husband has a DVD player in his makeshift den in the garage, and I could always play DVDs on my computer, so I just didn't have the need for it. But reviewing DVDs was getting to be a pain if I had to write and watch on the same computer or drag someone else's unit out to the living room.
Toshiba SD 4000 DVD Player-Great DVD for the Price
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I actually got this DVD player by way of winning a gift certificate at my job! I had a Coby before, but between the 8 yr old and the husband, they would leave it on constantly and it got to the point where it was going in and out, the light wasnt working anymore on it and it would just stall the DVD. It wasnt playing anything at all, only message i'd ever get across the screen was "bad disc.
Excerpt: We bought this product a few months ago to replace a Phillips divx-compatible player that finally bit the dust, and I have to say we are VERY satisfied with it. Not only was it cheaper than the Phillips originally was, but it offers tons of more features, not the least of which is the ability to fast-forward and rewind avi files...when we did that on the Phillips, it would skip to the end of the file.
Summary: I purchased this DVD player for my daughter for Christmas. It arrived within 3 days of placing the order. The player is extremely easy to hook up and use. I had absolutely no problems. The picture quality is excellent and the players capabilities are more than adequate as a primary or secondary unit in the home. It could have more bells and whistles but I really can't imagine why they would be needed. It does everything expected and does it well.
