Summary: The main reason I purchased this player was to have a portable dvd player that has the "divx" playback feature (not mentioned in the US literature), but you can read about it at DIVX.com. It won't play .avi files, you have to rename them to .mpg to play them.
Summary: I received a new Toshiba SD-P2600 for Fathers Day Last year from my kids. After fourteen months of ownership and less than twenty five hours of use, the player would not turn on. This unit was manufactured in March, 2004. Since this unit is factory service only I mailed it to Toshiba.
Summary: Nice little player, carries well, battery charges OK, but pity locked into region 1, no hacking codes yet, but plays region free discs OK. Speakers very ordinary, headphones are essential for listening. Never freezes,picture great provided you sit square on to the screen, peripheral image not good.
Summary: My wife and I bought this player for our kids (for long car trips) for Christmas 2004. We are both working professionals (teacher and policeman). This player started to freeze during playback from the very first dvd played. It got progressively worse over a period of 3 months.
Summary: This is an excellent player, with many nice features. The screen is sharp but, and this is a very big but, the viewing angles are so narrow as to render this almost unusable and is really unacceptable in today's world of LCD screens. It's a shame because the unit is well-designed and well-made.
Summary: Just received this unit a few days ago after toying between this model and the 2500 and 2600. Screen is excellent and the design is more flexible than the other two. The unit is light but the battery pack attaches to the bottom back part of the player and adds considerable heft.
