Two Tours And Still Going

T. Tucker, Amazon
30 May 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this DVD player during my last tour in Iraq. Here I am, on a second tour, and this player is still going strong. Toshiba has done an outstanding job with this DVD Player. It's durable, can take a beating (ran over by a vehicle, on one occasion), and has endured the heat and sand. I would highly recommend, anyone desiring a rugged player designed for travel, this is the portable player you should purchase.

Not very good quality

Shar-Pei Mom, Amazon
6 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought this dvd player a year ago and can't remember a time it ever worked correctly. It skips and freezes a lot (and thats when its placed on a table or other stable surface). You can only imagine what it plays like in the car.

Utter Piece of C***

T. L Layman, Amazon
20 September 2004
  • Summary: Purchased unit at retailer for $500 based on Toshiba's previous quality reputation. Battery would not charge after 3 months of extremely light use & hinge broke, requiring a screw driver to be used to open it. I've bought lots of electronics equipment from a variety of manufacturers & this has to be the worst purchase I have ever made...PLEASE, DO NOT BUY!!!!

battery life is problematic

J.J., Amazon
31 July 2004
  • Summary: dvd player works well. Battery fails to hold charge after being used 5 times. Toshiba has sent us 2 replacement batteries so far (in less than one year). If I had known about the battery problems in advance, I would not have purchased this product. I would NOT recommend it to others. From reading other on-line reviews, my battery problems seem to be widespread, although Toshiba has been honorable with us so far.

Plays MPEGs From ROM discs

Bklyn Mac User "Bklyn Mac User", Amazon
8 July 2004
  • Summary: Great picture, poor quality sound from speakers but you have to expect that from such tiny speakers. The 2 headphone outlets are convenient and work well. But here's something they don't mention in the catalog-it can play MPEG Quicktime movies from a CD-Rom or a DVD-Rom. They do tell you that is plays JPEG photos and it does. The problem with JPEG and MPEG reading is that navigating the discs using the control panel is, to put it mildly, not intuitive.

Toshiba has problems with this player

Jason Ploof, Amazon
1 July 2004
  • Summary: I purchased this player last nov.03, battery dead by january, toshiba sent out new battery, that is now dead.To top it off toshiba will not stand up to there problems with this unit and replace bad batteries! I paid good money for a portable dvd player that is not portable. Toshiba wants people to shell out 150.00 for a new battery (half the price of the unit itself) Please read all the reviews and that will tell you not to buy this product!

Works as a dvd player, but not as a portable

Sakura3210, Amazon
17 June 2004
  • Summary: The player is very durable physically, which was a pro for me, but I discovered alot of downsides that outweigh the good. For starters, the picture was o.k. most of the time, but when viewing dark-lighted movies (ex. scene at night) you couldn't see anything at all-the screen is naturally dark and you can't change its brightness levels. Two, you can fastfoward, etc.

Tested in Iraq

Michael W. Mcfall "michaelwmcfall", Amazon
11 May 2004
  • Summary: I am an American Soldier in the US Army Infantry. Our living conditions over here does not support the fragile conditions needed for most DVD players. This does not stop soldiers from buying DVD players, we need them to help keep our sanity. This DVD player from Toshiba has been with me for 7 months. the only problem I have had with it is the cutoff button than shuts off the screen when you close the screen.

Solution to Battery Problem?

Kenneth R. Gullette Jr. "kennyg", Amazon
26 April 2004
  • Summary: I bought this DVD player and I have enjoyed it (except for the lack of skip protection). I was angry when the battery died completely after a few months. I bought a replacement battery online for $100 and read on the instructions that if you keep the battery attached to the player, a trickle charge remains on and can kill the battery completely. So if you buy this player, it's okay but I am now taking the battery off when not using the player.

Poor Quality, Battery Worthless

Kip Miles, Amazon
12 March 2004
  • Summary: Used 4 times then battery would not charge and warranty would not cover it. Replacement battery is $117. Don't be fooled by nice look, this is a rip-off! I have found Toshiba to be a good mid-line brand but this is the last item I will buy from them. Send me $50 and you can have it!
