Summary: I purchased this DVD player as a replacement for my old cheapie that finally died on me after four years of use. Like many have reported, I bought it at Costco (it was the cheapest model available) and I wanted something that was an upgrade over my $20 player that often skipped and stopped. So far, the SDK1000 has not disappointed me.
Summary: The SDK1000 is avalable from many vendors on the net and almosts all sell as "refurbished". In fact, Amazon is about the only vendor that sells it as "new". Now I know exactly why. I connected it to my TV via HDMI and it worked for a total of about 2-3 minutes and then, it suddenly died. My TV would no longer recognize it (no signal) and the remote no longer could comunicate with it.
Summary: I bought this DVD player as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend, the price was right and we have never been disappointed by a Toshiba product. It plays DivX perfectly and the image quality is really good. Never had any problems, great product.
Summary: This is my first purchase of a DVD player over $50. All of my previous DVD players worked fine, I purchased this DVD player for the HDMI option for my new VIZIO tv. I like this DVD model, it is slim and looks great, great picture, however the manual is useless. There also does not appear to be a resume option which is very annoying and really unbelievable for the price - I called Toshiba for live support, and it is not available for DVD's, only a prompt that is also...
Summary: We have been very impressed with the Toshiba SDK1000 DVD Player. It was purchased to replace an older DVD / VCR system. It was easy to set up (HDMI connection)and has functioned well. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who only needs a system to play DVD movies, TV videos, etc.
Summary: Just received the DVD player and the first thing that struck me is how wide this player is in size and scale. While it is pretty thin, if you have limited shelf space, look for something else. The second thing as one of the reviewers commented, if style and decor are subtle requirements for you, is the stark black color of both the dvd player and remote.
Summary: This was purchased about 6 months ago to replace an ancient Panasonic DVD player. So far it is working great. My only complaint is the remote. It is hard to see the buttons when light low to watch a movie. Once the movie is started about all you need is the pause, rev, fwd buttons. It would be nice if these functions had bigger buttons or maybe different colors.
