  • Summary: DVD has more lives than a motorway-crossing, chainsaw-juggling cat. The E500 revitalises your digital movie collection once more, giving colour, contrast and especially detail a next-generation pick-me-up.

  • Excerpt: Toshiba hopes to revitalize DVD technology with their new XD-E500 upconverting DVD player. Just when I thought that I would probably never review a DVD player gain, Toshiba introduced their new XD-E500 1080p up conversion DVD player. Toshiba, who was one of the co-inventor’s DVD technology, and also the creator of the now defunct high-definition HD DVD optical disc, is coming back to the DVD marketplace with a new upconverting DVD player. Why?
  • Pros: Great picture quality; 24-frames per second mode; very affordable
  • Cons: Does not replace a Blu-ray player; XDE technology works, but is not necessary

  • Excerpt: Toshiba has been hyping the heck out of its new upconverting Toshiba XD-E500 DVD player, but has also been careful not to declare it an equivalent to Blu-ray, the high-definition format that beat out Toshiba's HD-DVD.

  • Conclusion: Au final, la platine Toshiba XD-E500 n’est pas la fameuse tueuse de Blu-ray comme certains l’attendaient. Si il est vrai qu’elle permet de restaurer un peu les DVD par rapport à une platine classique, les images n’arrivent pas au niveau de celles offertes par le support Haute Définition natif, pour peu qu’il soit bien encodé. Le Blu-ray a un fait contre lui : il est très lent. La platine de Toshiba réagit très vite.
  • Pros: La qualité d’image DVD, La réactivité générale
  • Cons: Petite déception sur l’upscaling, Prix, 24 p ??

TEST: Toshiba XD-E500

  • Summary: Det er flere ting som er verdt å ta med i betraktningen hvis du vurderer XD-E500, hvorav den vesentligste er prisen. Rundt 13-1400 kroner må du ut med for Toshibas lille tryllekunstner, som selvfølgelig ikke tryller bra nok til å gjøre folk så forvirra at de ikke vet om de ser på Blu-ray eller DVD, men som likevel gjør en okei jobb med å forbedre DVDene dine.
  • Pros: Enkel å justere, oversiktelig (men stygg) meny, bra oppskalering av DVD-plater
  • Cons: Middelmådig fjernkontroll, litt dyr, å kalle den "nær HD" er en liten overdrivelse
