Summary: I bought one of these and it kept freezing, so I exchanged it for another. It worked fine for a couple of months. Now, it freezes, it won't turn on sometimes, and it won't go from menue to menue sometimes. I can understand one bad unit but two in a row.
Summary: decent upconverting DVD player; have used for about 3wks and has worked well without problems. Easy hook-up. An affordable machine if you are trying to wait for HD-DVD/Blu-ray player prices to come down.
Summary: I couldn't get a picture but a quick toll-free call to Toshiba gave me clear instructions (I wasn't using the remote properly). Then I was getting static on some but not all DVDs and another call to a very helpful Toshiba guy again helped me out and now everything operates perfectly.
Pros: Great picture, easy to use, has all the features to take advantage of latest TVs
Cons: Longer and narrower than standard VCRs and other video components, which makes it difficult to stack.

Pros: Upconversion to 1080i, HDMI, DIVX Playback
Cons: Not very Durable, Both my players have broken
