Warning for DIVX users!

Christoph B. Lemmonds "Kit Lemmonds", Amazon
25 September 2009
  • Summary: Since I specifically require a portable dvd player to watch divX files, this review is catered to that purpose. This unit advertises divX functionality, but then completely undermines the purpose of divX with a horrible limitation.

ok

Cheryl, Amazon
5 January 2009
  • Summary: I love this DVD player! The picture and color are great, but I did not enjoy it for long. It worked for about a week. I had a lot of trouble when I first received it with the battery. The battery pack would not hold a charge. I wasn't happy with the customer service at Amazon.

Very disappointed

John H., Newegg
22 May 2008
  • Summary: For the purpose intended this is a useless box for me. I went to the discount store & purchased another device instead which does work nicely. I also noticed while I was there they had this box for $25 less than I paid Newegg.
  • Pros: The concept of this product is good. Nice picture, portable and all that.... Don't even mind the power switch issue others have described. Picture quality initially was not so great, but after awhile with some "tweaking" it shaped up nicely.
  • Cons: Sound system? What sound system? What's the point in offering a top line machine with a tin-can sound system? Yup, you could add external speakers, but technology should suggest it's possible to get decent sound from the top-end device in it's class. BEWARE of the combo-special. Stupid me, I thou...

Be careful on your expectations...

Floyd Goodrich "Jim G.", Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: If you play a home made DVD-R the quality of the picture will be the same as less expensive players because even thought the screen is capable of higher resolution, its limited to the DVD resolution, so don't expect this player to make anything look better than the quality of the DVD its playing.

Design is good, but there are other factors.

Wayne M., Newegg
17 March 2008
  • Summary: What separates this from a 5/5+. A quality product and the service to back it up. Two in row with problems is pretty rare, but the service I received from Toshiba was so below par that it will be a long time before I buy another one again.
  • Pros: Overall design is well except the on/off switch. Other controls very convient when using. Remote control is a good size also. Picture is crisp and clear and makes for excellent viewing, especially when travelling as the battery life was good.
  • Cons: Unfortunatelly, there is another side to this. After 2 weeks, my power adapter died completely. I worked with the remote support team, who in my opinion should not even be in business. After several emails convincing them it was the power adapter, I was finally told to call in to the help line wh...

nice but missing accessories

Jayjay, Amazon
10 March 2008
  • Summary: The first thing I noticed upon opening the box was that the manual was missing. After some effort, I was able to get a link to the download from Toshiba. After printing out the 88 page (!

Great unit, but disappointed

Rogue Valley Rick "Amazon fan", Amazon
3 March 2008
  • Summary: The DVD player is very nice. HOWEVER: it came to me missing the entire recharger unit and cable. Sloppy work, Amazon! I purchased a used unit. That was a mistake. I guess Amazon/Warehouse Deals doesn't bother to look inside the boxes when items are returned to them, just send 'em back out to some...

Good quality picture and memory card reader

Nick V., Amazon
7 February 2008
  • Summary: Bought this product for the additional memory card reader so we could play photos from our camera. The unit reads the memory cards just fine and the picture quality is great, but the sort order for the pictures is odd. Its not by filename or any obvious date (created, taken, etc).

Outstanding Screen resolution

slammer, Amazon
7 February 2008
  • Summary: With an almost HD screen resolution this unit is a pleasure to watch. No other portable unit has this magnificant picture quality. My only reservation is that there is not a last memory resume feature.

Great Player Overall

Bookem Dano, Amazon
7 February 2008
  • Summary: If you want a player with a large screen, don't be surprised if the player is large. It's about two inches less deep and 2 inches less wide than a small laptop, and about the same thickness with the battery attached.
