  • 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.
  • Pros: Good picture, Good sound
  • Cons: Totally unreliable

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: "A great DVD player with Upconversion to 780p/1080i, HDMI and component video outputs as well as DIVX playback. Pity that it will only play for 60minutes before playback grinds to a halt. I bought this player as I've not long upgraded to a HDTV. I was noticing a bit of picture derogation using my old player (connected via SCART) and decided it was time to upgrade.

  • Pros: Upconversion to 1080i, HDMI, DIVX Playback
