Toshiba XD-E500

What Hi-Fi?
24 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Toshiba's HD-DVD is dead, but the company hasn't given up the fight against Blu-ray. Although a new DVD player might not sound like the most exciting alternative to Sony's HD format, the XD-E500's onboard eXtended Detail Enhancement (XDE) technology is designed to 'bring standard DVD quality closer to the HD experience'. While neither the picture nor sound produced here can match HD quality, the 'E500's still a mighty fine DVD player.
  • Pros: ‘Sharp’ mode offers incredibly detailed pictures, naturally vibrant colours, smooth, stable motion, nice styling
  • Cons: Sound could do with just a little more refinement
