Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive DVD player that I could trust to easily play burned DVDs and this does just that! It's simple, lightweight, and easily transportable. Just don't lose the remote otherwise you won't be able to skip scenes or move the cursor up or down. The buttons on the actual machine are very basic. I rated it 4 and not 5 stars because I rarely rate things 5 (it has to exceed my expectations).
Pros: Consistent Performance, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
Summary: I've watched a few movies so far, and the player seems to work well. No real complaints. The different view settings (i.e. letterbox, cropped, etc.) are nice for our 4:3 TV; the letterbox option prevents the vertical stretching of widescreen movies that don't already have the letterboxing.
Summary: GREAT QUALITY AT A LOW PRICE. I HAVE ONLY HAD THIS 2 DAYS, SO I CANNOT COMMENT ON LONGEVITY. HOWEVER, I HAVE OWNED OTHER TOSHIBA PRODUCTS, AND HAVE HAD GOOD RESULTS. I READ THE REVIEWS, BEFORE PURCHASING THIS UNIT, AND OVERALL THEY WERE VERY FAVORABLE.
Pros: EASY TO SET UP FOR ANYONE. EASY TO OPERATE, GOOD PICTURE QUALITY. GREAT VALUE
Cons: ONLY PLAYS ONE DVD AT A TIME. BUT THIS IS AN EXTRA UNIT FOR THE BEDROOM, NOT OUR MAIN DVD PLAYER.
Summary: I bought this for a cheap DVD player and it is. The remote buttons are EXTREMELY small and hard to read. I wanted to use the SVHS output for a better video picture, but after returning my first player and exchanging it, I found that my second one would not output SVHS either. I groaned and just used the composite video out, not wanting to make another trip.
Pros: Cheap, Consistent Performance
Cons: Remote buttons too small, SVHS output doesn't work, Won't play DiVX files
