Excerpt: I have recently purchased the new Toshiba 42ZV555DB LCD TV which upscales SD signals to near HD quality. I was a bit sceptical but the difference is unbelievable. The pictures are so sharp. High quality bitrate signals like the BBC news look like the presenter is 3D!!
Summary: Having had this player for three weeks now I can safely say my initial enthusiasm was Well Justified. It just hasn’t ceased to impress me. It is just Awesome. Full stop. The clarity detail and colour this device brings out of DVDs has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Excerpt: Though this product claims DVD +/- R/RW compatability, for me, it isnt. It will play none of the +R or +RW discs made on my Lite-On DVD recorder and only about 1 in 3 of the +R DVD discs made in my or other peoples computer recorder, despite the fact that these discs play fine in the other 3...
Excerpt: Bought this at a bargain price from Amazon (the price has risen again, why ??) but even if you pay full price for this baby, its worth the dosh... Using the sharp mode as well as HD upscaling, provides superb picture quality with any good quality standard DVD release, very, very close to genuine...
Excerpt: Okay so i bought this dvd player after reading all the consumer reviews. I also checked out what the experts had to say on what hi fi audio website. they said that it was the best upscaling dvd player they have seen but the audio was a bit of a letdown. A BIT?????
Excerpt: I had been looking for a new dvd player, read the feedback and ordered this player. I am really glad I did - easy to set up, use and looks great. I only gave it 4 stars as the draw is a tad flimsy - hope it stands the test of time.
Excerpt: 2 problems... 1) it would play virtually no dvdr/dvdrw discs when other dvd players in the house play them well 2)though the picture was good via hdmi cable after 3 weeks it stopped transmitting through this cable, only outputing through the scart lead.
Excerpt: I have recently taken the plunge into Blu Ray and will be purchasing only these from now on but due to the fact that I have a massive number of standard DVDs I was not particularly keen to replace all my existing DVD titles with Blu Ray titles - pretty expensive to do that!!.
Excerpt: I was looking to replace an older indoor antenna and I bought this product after reading the reviews on Amazon. I was not disappointed, it is a fantastic product. The reception I now receive is as good as any outdoor antenna. Great value for money too. I can recommend this product very highly.
Excerpt: I bought this because our external antenna had too weak a signal (even when run with a booster) to allow it to be split between freeview box and a DAB tuner. This Thomson antenna however gives a great signal for either freeview or DAB.
