Summary: Went for this one because of good reviews and larger screen. Have only used a half dozen times- but it does seem to make a lot of noise as it sets up to play a DVD. Lots of clanging and squeeking that makes me think it will stop playing at any moment. One DVD would not play at all- but played fine on my iMac computer later. This was a refurbished player.
Summary: I thought this was a GREAT value, however, I didn't read the "this is a refurbished unit" even though it was noted on the web page for the item . The packaging it was shipped in made it look as if it was a brand new product, however, after reviewing the packing slip, that's when I realized it was a refurbished product. I loved the fact it has such a large screen, and many options for viewing.
Summary: I was going on a long road trip and was really excited about buying this product. I read several of the reviews before I decided on this DVD player. The speakers are fine if you are inside watching a movie. However, if you are riding in the car it's really hard to hear the movie even if you turn the volume up all the way. Actually, I am going to send this DVD player back because the volume knob on the side of the player has a short in it.
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. I installed an SD card and after a long wait, the pictures came up and were very fuzzy. Can't recommend the slide show option on this player.
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 (!) manual, I discovered that some other items were also missing: the button battery for the remote (those things are expensive!) and two of the cables. I have returned the DVD player for a replacement from Amazon.
Summary: This is a nice little unit for just watching a commercial video. The picture quality is fair and the sound quality mediocre. I sent it back because it doesn't have a USB port to connect a digital camera. When i inserted a Xd camera card, the picture quality was degraded from the quality I get from my MAC. So for kids or people just wanting to watch a video on the go, it works fine. Don't buy it for showing off your own videos though.
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). If you want to make a slideshow, this doesn't work because even when you number the pictures they will not be in order!
