Toshiba SD 2010
Advantages: great price
Disadvantages: no hdmi socket
After a number of years with the same large DVD player, I decided that it was time for an upgrade for a smaller more compact model. I was originally looking for a blue ray DVD player but after weighing up the cost and the fact that I already had a large DVD collection that were not blue ray discs, it was not worth the upgrade. Especially as I had already spent the past few years changing my video collection to DVD's in the first place.
In the end after looking at a lot of different machines comparing prices and then reading the reviews I opted for a Toshiba SD2010 DVD Player that also comes with a USB port all for under £30.00.
The Toshiba is compatible with a wide range of different discs from DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R AND CR-RW are but to name a few. It has a scart socket, a digital co-axial as well as a USB port and it is Dolby digital compatible.
It weighs less than one and a half kilos and it is 43cm wide by 4.3cm in height and has a diameter of 21cm. The DVD Player comes in a black gloss, it is a slim machine that looks great next to your flat screen television or your sky plus box.
The great thing about this DVD Player is that not only can you watch DVD's you can also look at photographs and listen to music through the USB connector.
This is a DVD Player suitable for a person with any budget, I probably watch on average 1 DVD a week so purchasing a top of the range expensive DVD Player would have been a waste of money for me.
I found this DVD Player easy to connect to my television as I connected my scart lead and away I went watching a film in just a few minutes. The remote control of the DVD Player looks a little cheap and nasty but for under £30 I cannot see that this is a problem to really complain about.
I can find only one true problem with the Toshiba SD2010 and that is if you want to connect your DVD Player by HDMI cable as there is not a socket available for this connection.
I have now owned this DVD Player for a few months and I have started to use the USB connector to play music from my ipod and look at the photographs from my digital camera more frequently than I use it to watch DVD's. I have been using the USB on the Toshiba SD2010 DVD Player as the USB port is easier to access and connect to as opposed to using my television, plus this is also more cost effective as I do not need to purchase any additional cables as the USB cables already come with each of the products to use with your computer.
Overall this is a great DVD Player for under £30, unfortunately if you would like the latest top of the range DVD Player then this is not for you. But for the small price tag I have no serious complaints about it.
Summary: a great dvd player
