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!!. When I saw this player advertised (along with the promises from Toshiba of near HD quality from standard DVDs) I decided to get hold of one. The result is, in the main, very good.
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 high definition viewing. As well as the unique sharp mode and 1080p upscaling, this machine will also do 1080p/24 frames per second, for standard DVD discs !!
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. I had expected it to be inferior in quality to the external one, but so far it has not broken up at all. Thinking of buying another now for our portable tv in the back room that has never had good reception.
Excerpt: I bought this amplified aerial to use in our caravan as many camp sites can have difficult reception. The performance is excellent and after I placed the order it arrived in a couple of days. I plugged it in and ir worked brilliantly. I will be looking at other products from Netgadgets as I have 100% confidence in the company.
Excerpt: Very impressed with this product, so simple to set up - literally takes just a few seconds and I now have excellent reception. It really does do everything that it says on the box! What I also liked was the speed of delivery - this came direct from the manufacturer `NetGadgets` and arrived within two days and there was no charge for postage!
Excerpt: Im very happy with this ariel. It arrived less than 24h after I ordered it. Plugged it in to the mains and the tv...pressed scan and woohoo, we now have 72 digital channels. They are 72 channels mostly containing utter dross, but the picture and reception of the dross is superb! Hurrah. Also, the ariel was packaged in egg-box-y card, and therefore will be fully recyclable -if only the same thing could be said of the TV I bought the other day, ho hum.
Excerpt: I ordered this ariel as i had tried others and could not get a clear reception on the freeview channels. After reading all the reviews i decided to give it a go, i now receive all the channels and the picture quality is crystal clear!
Excerpt: Nachdem sich einer meiner DVD-Player verabschiedet hatte und Ersatz her musste, stieß ich im Real auf ein Sonderangebot für den Toshiba XDE-500. Da dieses Gerät eigentlich ein Auslaufmodell ist und nicht mal mehr auf Toshibas Webseite gelistet ist, nun nach wenigen Tagen der Nutzung gleich der Erfahrungsbericht, falls noch irgendwer besagtes Sonderangebot (möglicherweise nicht in allen Real Fillialen) mitnehmen will.
Pros: Bildqualität, Pseudo - HD - Qualität beim Upscaling, Medienkompatibilität, Codefree per Fernbedienung
Cons: Pfeifendes Netzteil, Übersetzungsfehler im Menü, Seitenverhältnis - Wirrwar über HDMI
Summary: Dieser DVD-Player bringt nach wie vor Referenzqualität beim Bild. Was da - schon ohne Wahl eines Modus - bildmäßig rüberkommt: beeindruckend. Und das trotz oder gerade aus einer DVD herausgeholt! Und bei der Bildqualität nicht weniger BD stellt man sich immer wieder mal die Frage, hätte es nicht die DVD in einem XDE500 genauso gebracht - nur eben deutlich billiger!?
