This review is from: Toshiba XDE500 DVD Player with Advanced Upscaling Technology (Electronics)I haven't made comparisons of the image yet, but this machine has several issues which makes it disappointing to me:
1: It does not remember how far it has played a disc. Since I never watch all of a DVD in one go, it means I have to leave the machine on 24/7.
2: The remote control is the cheapest, most plasticky thing I've ever seen. And the buttons are so unresponsive that I have to press them on average three times to get the machine to react. It's highly annoying. Toshiba should be *embarrassed* by selling something of such poor quality.
3: The picture is stretched to wide screen (and thus distorted) no matter what picture setting I use.

I find it annoying that you haven't even compared the bloody image and still give it 1 star... FFS....
1. Use Chapters
2. Buy a universal remote
3. Check your TV settings as well as your DVD settings.
So how does it look? Can you tell us now?

I'm in agreement here. The 'resume' feature annoys me, the remote is irrelevant for me (Toshiba Regza Link does well for me) and the TV can override any settings on the player. Not really bad points in my book Eolake.

I agree, it sounds like a Tv set on the wrong settings.
The remote is just fine, if you want better than pay a couple of hundred for a Logic 1100 or similar,
How is it you can see it is on 4:3 and not be able to comment on the image?
I'm looking into the 'remember playback position', but....... if you NEVER watch a DVD in one sitting, maybe you should note what chapter you finished at and stick it on a post it note for next time?
or you could do the obvious.............
Set aside the time to view the DVD fully in one sitting and not waste potential viewing time on posting ultimately pointless reviews instead?
