This is hands down one of best players on the market at the moment, but not only from a price standpoint. This offers one of the best blu ray experiences around full stop. Cheap certainly doesn't mean nasty here. You should definitely consider this one if you are planning on purchasing a blu ray player soon.
Design: This definitely doesn't look like a budget player. This looks like premium device through and through. The sleek and shiny one colour design means that this is going to go really well anywhere you put it. It has four buttons on the front for power, stop, eject and play/pause, along with a USB port and a display for the time. Excellent design. The only slight issue might be that it feels quite flimsy when you are holding it (But when are you really going to hold this?)
Connectivity: This has all the major bases covered. It has plenty of outputs so that you aren't going to run out if you are using a home cinema system. More good news for home cinema system users is that the player outputs all the major audio formats and goes up to 8.1.
The player also has integrated wifi, so if you are planning on renting and buying films straight from the player then there shouldn't be any real hassle.
This is one of the best designed, best looking, best performing, most fleshed out players on the market at the moment, and at this price it is an absolute steal. If you are getting a blu ray player soon make this the one.
Toshiba never would be a brand I would associate with a good DVD player, especially not a Blu-Ray player with such advanced features. I usually think of Toshiba as being connected with laptops. But when we were last shopping for a new Blu-Ray player and asked round different homeware stores, one of the ones we were suggested to buy was this one. Unconvinced but attracted by the low price, we decided to go for it and 8 months on are still very delighted with our purchase!
For a start it really isn't very expensive and retails around the £75/£80 mark, which we bought it for. It's well worth this price and is guaranteed to last a long time.
The option to stream with the built in wifi is very appealing and we have got great use out of this for BBC iPlayer and Youtube. It's a lot more appealing sometimes than watching normal TV and was one of the things that persuaded us as a family to buy this kind of Blu-Ray player. We also get good use out of the slot for the HDMI cable - it's very useful although is included on most players today.
The quality of the actual item is very good too. Solidly black coloured and of a compact build it's well fitting in any room and is easily positioned anywhere as it isn't that large. It's quite lightweight and is easily stored on shelves too. It's very slim and looks smart.
I love this and now wouldn't overlook Toshiba as a brand.
