Very good dvd player but buy correct tv/dvd connection cable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba SD280E - DVD Player (Electronics)
As other reviews have stated this is a very good dvd player - great value for money.
I was thinking of getting a more expensive player with upscaling abilities but, after reading an article in a av forum which said that the difference was very small and that average consumers would probably only be able to identify the upscale dvd player when viewing side by side with a cheaper one, I decided not to bother and save my money.
Whether this is true or not I don't really know, Anyway this cheap(ish) Toshiba player provides an excellent picture and sound.
But a couple of points to remember - (1) it connects to your tv via a SCART to SCART connection cable and NOT a HDMI cable. There is no HDMI connection on the player. (2) the same article as above said it was worth buying a good SCART connection to ensure optimum picture/sound quality.
I "invested" in a relatively expensive THOR scart to scart cable. Apart from the tv quality aspect, the THOR cable looks and feels as though it's built to last - maybe even longer than the player or the tv !!
