      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The slim and sleek SD210 is aimed at the home-cinema enthusiast. The striking silver case carries the minimum of controls. The on-screen setup is mercifully logical and easy to use. Along with an almost universal set of connections offered for image output on the back of the unit--S-VHS, Composite and a Scart socket--you also get a set of component video sockets, which if your display equipment supports it is the preferred method for the best picture quality possible. Sound is handled by optical and coaxial digital outs and by a set of stereo analogue outputs. Features include black-level adjustment, a variable zoom--offering 1.5x, 2.5x and 3.5x, which can be panned around the screen, and a 3-D spatial sound mode. For those without a living room full of speakers and wires this attempts to recreate the effect using just a set of stereo speakers. The effect isn't always successful but Toshiba's attempt is one of the better ones. The picture quality has been one of Toshiba's trump cards on its DVD players and the SD210E doesn't disappoint. It builds on from the SD110E with an enhanced video amplifier, video DAC and a jitter reduction system. The resulting picture quality is standard setting. Contrast and colours are detailed and rich, bringing the best out of any DVD disc. You'll certainly need a good television to make the most of what's on offer. The detailed and clear sound doesn't disappoint either. Once again Toshiba has delivered a player that is a cut above the rest which concentrates on what really matters--high quality pictures and sound.

      After a long fight with my partner of what I wanted for Christmas, I eventually plucked up the courage to ask for a DVD player. This did not go down very well to begin with as he feels he is some sort of technical buff when it comes to gadgets. I think not! He is actually one of those kinds of people who has every gadget going but does not even know how they work. We have had our video for almost 5 years and he still does not know how to record with it! So when I woke on Christmas morning to a fantastic DVD player I was pleasantly surprised at the model and make. It is very slim and sleek and goes very well with my TV and video in all black which was great cause most of them these days are silver. The DVD player itself looks very sophisticated and comes complete with a remote control with batteries, a scart cable that connects directly to the TV no tuning is required (excellent no technical stuff yet) you also get a normal TV Ariel cable similar to that of a video but if you use the scart cable there is no use for it, there is also the mains lead adaptor that has a handy reinforced wire to ensure that the wires do not come loose if the machine is tugged from the socket for some reason, I see this is happening more and more on electrical goods these days, very handy. When I looked at the remote and the player, I thought 'how on earth do I work this thing how does it tune in? I have never had a DVD player. So I did the most unusual thing for me and loads of other people I can bet, I read the instructions, which were in English only, how cool! They are very easy to follow and explain all the features in full and easy to follow simple terms. This is when I found out no tuning was required, but I was till unsure what to do with it as I had never used a scart cable, and in the instructions it does not mention that scart is an automatic tuner, that was only pit fall about the instructions that I have found. So I connec
      ted the cable turned on the DVD and instantly a message appeared on the TV welcoming me to DVD by Toshiba, amazing or what I thought. That then gave me my next worry, I tried to change channels but it automatically goes back to your scart channel, I referred back to instructions and this is where I found out that it automatically goes to scart when DVD is on full power, to get back to normal TV just put it on standby, as simple as that that was my DVD player fully installed almost as easy as the kettle. Now on to the features! Picture Quality: The qualities of DVD movies are simply outstanding, even on my TV, which is also about 5 years old. With crystal clear vision and sound to die for you will be glad you joined the DVD revolution. I am hooked and that is only after 5 days. Remote control: This has more functions available on it than the player itself and is almost daunting, especially to the non gadget minded (my partner) It is quite a big remote and has a slide open case that reveals even more buttons, the hidden ones are related more to the special features on the DVD's themselves and are only functional if that feature is available on the DVD, the instructions go into great detail on this and explain each feature very well. It takes two triple AAA batteries and these are also provided for set up. Zoom: This function is great for watching all movies especially if you fancy a close up of something, it zooms in up to three times, but I don't see any real need for it, but it is a good feature for the visually impaired, although it does cut out half of the screen when in full zoom mode. Multi Angle: This is an excellent feature only functional if the DVD has it on it, the best one I have acquired so far with this feature is 'Robbie Williams - Where Egos Dare' which also has loads of other advanced features on it. The purpose of this is when a little camera app
      ears on your TV screen you press the angle button on the remote and you can view what you are watching from a different angle, it is so cool. Subtitles: No need for to explain what these are, they are a great feature for deaf people and are available in numerous languages (136 to be exact!), the list is endless. These are easy to turn on and off and this can be done any time during playback. Audio: This feature again is simple to use and allows you to set the sound just the way you like it, has Dolby Digital Surround, Bit stream and even an option again for people with difficulties in hearing. There are also numerous features very similar to that of a CD player. It has repeat, random, skip forward and back, the purpose of them is to help you find parts of the movie or whatever you are watching much quicker. You can also choose which language to view the DVD's actual menu in and again this can be any of the 136 available. The instructions go into great detail about basic playback and advanced playback but even the advanced functions are easy to use, most of them are only available if the DVD has them available and a logo of the feature available appears on the screen, the logo looks exactly like the button so you know what one to press, it could not be easier than that now could it? The actual player itself only has the features for basic playback and looks very similar to a CD player and even in some cases a video recorder. You have play, stop, rewind, forward, skip function, open and close and also the on / off standby button and that is the lot. Apart from the DVD function the player can also play audio CD's and video CD's, this was an added bonus as Alex has a rare video CD he bought a few years ago that was never played, as he was advised that DVD was best way to keep it in mint condition so he was glad he managed to at last watch his pride and joy in superb and
      outstanding quality, You will also encounter regional functions with all DVD players have, UK is region 2 only although you can get DVD discs from other countries that are multi regional, you can buy players with various regions but these tend to be very expensive, but never fear you can get your player chipped/hacked which is perfectly legal, or you can simply surf the net looking for DVD region cheats, these sites provides codes that enable you watch other region DVD's. The best region is 1 the is America's region and you can get there DVD's over the net at great prices and often long before they are in our shops. So that is the Toshiba S2109B in a nutshell, very simple to use and a great looking model with excellent features, well worth waiting for and also the hassle in trying to convince that it would be a good buy. So what you waiting for January sales have started and I am sure there will be many at bargain prices right now, they are not as expensive as they once were although there are many out there that are.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I decided, for Xmas, I would like a DVD player as top pressie. Everyone at work appeared to have one and I was not going to watch everything on my PC (although I HAVE watched a few films and my 17" Samtronic does them proud (as well as the surround sound speaker setup). My wife decided she would cough up the dough at Xmas. However, a pleasant surprise landed in my e-mail box: I won a compo with Orangina - a £200 gift voucher with lastminute.com. Always the doubting Thomas, I searched their website expecting the deal to be "Spend £3000 and get £200 off your next lastminute.com holiday" or something similar. But wait, they had more than holidays...they had TVs, Hi-fi's, VCRs and, and, and oooh DVD PLAYERS. Well, one DVD Player. So, I ordered a player only to be told that they were out of stock (here we go), but they have a similar spec machine by Toshiba for £2 extra. So Friday just before Christmas, I joined the rest of the World and owned my very own DVD Player. Ok, so you're all bored senseless now. What about the machine? It plays DVDs! Yippee, end of opinion... Seriously, very few flaws with machine. It has replaced the CD player on our hifi (broke down when we moved house, but still liked rest of system) and does have some excellent features. It is multi-regional, plays VCDs and even MP3 CDs. My only niggle is that you cannot disable Macrovision. Not a problem I hear you say? However, our TV is playing up (again, since we moved house) in that the scart socket has a fault somewhere: after a while it kind of overheats and send the picture through it all wobbly (sorry to get technical on everyone). Also, our video is not NTSC compatible. Therefore all my DVDs that have Macrovision and all the DVDs I have borrowed that are Region 1, I still have to watch on my PC! Either that or, by saving a bit on a DVD Player via a compo, I need to fork out more on a new TV and video!!! <br> It's still a great DVD Player. Favourite feature has to be the zoom option. My wife doesn't like widescreen mode (I do) so I can remove it with a few taps on the good old RC. Well worth the money (even if I had to buy it). Update on the Tosh - 16/03/02: Still an excellent choice in DVD, I have noticed the slight whirring of the motor (but only when I have to have the sound down to minimum). I have now invested in a video with NTSC playback and a "cable" to overcome the Macrovision. I now want to invest in a mega TV to enjoy my rapidly increasing DVD collection (got about 20 already).

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I spent a lot of time looking for a dvd player,and the reason i decided on this one was because it was recommended to me.I'm so pleased with it now though,that i will never go back to videos. In appearence,this dvd player is slim line,light in weight and doesn't have a lot of buttons on the front.(I liked that as i don't get on with electrical gadgets too well.) With the dvd player,you will recieve a remote control,batteries,scart lead,ariel lead and a very good instruction maual. The remote has 45 buttons on it,which may sound scary to some people,but the instruction manual is very clearly labeled.The remote requires 2 batteries at R6 size.The buttons are for things like *Open and close the dvd drawer *Standby *Rewind,fastforward and skip *Play,stop and pause *Camera angle *Subtitles *Audio If you play a music cd on your dvd player,the remote also has function keys for *Random play *Repeat *Memory *Display Everything that you want to do,can be done with the remote. Connecting,i though would be a great problem.I'm not very good at this sort of thing,but it was not a problem for me. You can connect your dvd player 3 ways. *Using the scart lead.This is connected to the back of the dvd,in the scart opening and then into the scart opening on the back of your tv.Simple as that. *Using the component video jacks.The wires for this run from the video out and analogue out sockets,on the back of the dvd,to the audio and video input sockets on the back of the tv.All of this is clearly shown in the manual. *Using the phono type jacks.These run from the analogue audio out sockets,on the back of the dvd,to the video and audio input sockets,on the tv. There is no tuning in on this dvd player.Which i found to be a big hit.You just connect it up and plug it in and a "welcome to dvd" screen appears on your tv.Now you are r
          eady to settle down and watch a film.It is truely as easy as that. Some of the features that are included are *Dvd,vcd and cd.Depending on what you are watching.These buttons are on the remote,choose the correct one.DVD for DVDS,VCD for VIDEO CDS and CD for AUDIO CDS. *Playing frame by frame.If you want to go back to watching normal,just press play. *Playing in slow motion.Again,if you want to go back to normal viewing,just press play. *Zooming.This is a great feature.You choose how close you want to zoom in. *Changing camera angles.This is also a great feature.It can only be used though,if the film supports it.Just press angle,to view the scene from different angles. *Subtitles.Just press subtitle during playback and there you go. *Language.You can select a preferred language and sound system. The manual is completely english aswell.That made me smile,i hate having to search for the English versions. I also thought it was reasonably priced aswell.I paid £230 for it,but i do believe you can get it for about £200 now.That makes it even better value for money.

              I write for a DVD Magazine. I have owned 3 other top-end DVD players before this and I would recommend Sony players for picture quality and Philips for sound. This DVD player is an excellent quality product for the price. It is not that well made. It has a picture quality which will not WOW you like that of a Sony or Panasonic model. You might as well buy a great quality one such as this and youll be able to really experience cinema quality. The remote control is a bit confusing and the on screen menus are quite unintuitive. It also interferes with my Hi Fi system! (unusual for a Toshiba product!) The buttons on the front feel quite solid and feel like they will last if you dont press them too hard. Im not sure that its build quality is up to scratch, though.

              The Toshiba 2109 is a great DVD player. I bought it when it first came out, approximately 2 and a half years ago, and its still working perfectly. It outputs a great, crisp picture and good sound. There is also the option to create Surround Sound on just two speakers with a simple press of a button on the control. And to the control . . . its rather large, but allows you to use the DVD player very easily, all the buttons are appropriately placed and you will soon learn the layout of the control, so that you can play, pause, stop etc without having to look at the control. It has 3x Zoom, which allows you to zoom in on any part of the screen up to 3 times the original size which I thought was a cool feature. Toshiba have thought of everything with this player, they even have a little feature which enables you to change the brightness of the LED display on the front of the player, you can even turn it off completely (although, how this would be handy, I don't know!) Other features include, Multi-Angle, Subtitles, and even a function where you can save your favourite chapters of the film in the memory, so you can return there whenever you like. A great DVD player which looks good, and is good!

                Disadvantages

                I bought this machine over a year ago and have never looked back. It was at the time the DVD player that you could buy for under £400 and it is still a lot better than some of the new players being released. Where as other budget players were hampered by certain discs not working properly the Toshiba had no problems at all. In fact I have not found a region 2 disc that doesn't work properly on it yet. The image quality is excellent thanks, in part, to a very good quality scart cable that is supplied with it (sometimes factors like this can make a lot of difference). However, not everything is perfect. There is not region hack for this model. A lot of budget players that have been released since this player have had region hacks built into the software, but to play region 1 discs on this machine you will need to get it chipped. Just a slight niggle, but at £80 for someone to chip it for you it is slightly annoying! I suppose the biggest problem with this player is that you can no longer buy it (or shouldn't be able to) as it has been replaced by the SD1000E which no doubt adds a few bells and wistles. Still, you can't beat an original :)

                  I bought this DVD player last Xmas in the sales and over the past year have amassed a total of 30 dvd films. I have been very pleased with the quality of this system. The quality is as good as any DVD player that I have seen. The menu for setting up your tv and player was pretty easy and the manual was very useful. The remote control is also pretty good even though it could perhaps have been a bit smaller. If you like films and like good quality pictures and sound then DVD is the way forward. If you want a decently priced player then this could be the one for you.

                    I bought my Tosh2109 in January 1999 and I can honestly say that I'm really pleased with it's performance. Sound reproduction is amazing and the image quality is of equally high standard. The majority of DVD discs these days are Dual-Layer, meaning that the player has to flip from Layer1 to Layer2 halfway through the movie - this is done automatically by the player so that the viewer doesn't need to get up and physically flip the disc over. This flipping by the player triggers a slight pause in the movie - some players take a few seconds to perform the flip and the resulting pause in the action can be very off-putting. The Toshiba2109 is great at doing this - I hardly notice the pause at all - it takes less than a second, sometimes I don't even notice it. The remote control is nice if a little big, the menus are very clear and easy to understand. I've got mine hooked up to my stereo using a SCART cable to get more bass from the soundtrack. The pause facility is nice too, really stable and clear and the disc-tray is nice and solid. The player's about 43cm wide which means it's wider than my VCR but that doesn't bother me as I have an old (ancient!) Atari2600 sitting on top and that's tiny! ;-) I got mine for £250 a year ago and I can't recommend it enough. While it may lack some connectors that the serious DVD hack might require (it only has 1 SCART socket for instance) it's still a great little player that plays discs really well giving excellent audio and visual playback.

                    I've had my machine for about 8 months now and what a wonderful 8 months I've had. I used to buy a few films on VHS however since getting this machine I wouldn't like to guess how much money I've spent on DVD's !! The machine it self comes with all the leads you require, having been a novice to home cinema I had no problems getting connected to my TV. Picture & sound quality are both vastly superior to VHS (plus no more tape rewinding) The remote does all you could ask of it. All in all a great introduction to the world of DVD, I haven't looked back !! Plus I got 10 DVD rentals & 3 DVD films thrown in.

                      when i first decided to step up into the dvd world i wanted a relatively cheap but easy to use dvd player. that is what i've got with this player. it is also multi-region but unlike a lot of other players this one has a very useful automatic region changer. when i compared this one to that of my brothers(a pioneer) i thought the extra £100 he spent on his was not justified because his is just to hard to use. with the toshiba all you have to do is put the disc in and press play, as simple as that.

                      What can i say until you have seen THe Matrix on DVD you have not lived. I joined the Revolution just before christmas and chose my player after seeing a number of favourable reviews of the machine from friends and magazines. I got home plugged it in watched the Warner Brother logo come up and I think to myself that looks good, the menu comes up, it looks cool, the film starts oh my god, oh my god, this looks fantastic, the picture is so sharp, the sound so crisp. That was my first introduction to dvd and I am glad it was on this player it has loads of features to start with from dts, dolby sound, multi angle, zoom, crystal clear pausing. The list goes on... I have played loads of dvds on the machine and I have not had a problem with one. You think to yourself that you won't use the Zoom feature, but when watching Cruel Intentions with the Commentary on, they claimed that there was a picture of the Lovely Sarah Michelle Geller next to the Clintions, so i stopped the film ans used the zoom to have a look at the picture and sure enough there she was. Setting the machine up is a joy and hassle free as the the player comes with a scart socket which easly plugs into the back of the television. The player with automatically set is self up and leave you to watch your films. If it is possible to fall in love with a remote control, I have done its brilliant, all the buttons that are regularly used are in put in ergonically designed places and the ones which are less used are hidden away under a little drawer. The machine it self looks briallint and will machine nearly everyones tele. The price I believe is falling because of the Toshiba SD100 come out so there is no better time to get one.

                      There's a reason why Toshiba is the leader in DVD. It led an industry consortium that defined the standards for DVD excellence, and that leadership continues in the future-forward models. With innovations that provide flawless picture performance, unequalled color detail, and studio-quality sound, it's no wonder Toshiba is your source for the very best in DVD.

                      The slim and sleek SD210E is aimed at the home-cinema enthusiast. The striking silver or black case carries the minimum of controls. The on-screen setup is mercifully logical and easy to use. Along with an almost universal set of connections offered for image output - S-VHS, Composite and a fully-wired Scart - you also get a set of component video sockets, which if your display equipment supports it is the preferred method for the best picture quality possible. Sound is handled by optical and coaxial digital outs and by a set of stereo analogue outputs.
