    Amazon.com Product Description

    Featuring a progressive-scan DVD player combined with a four-head hi-fi VCR, this Toshiba SD-V392 dual-function unit delivers the crisp resolution and enhanced sound of high-quality DVDs paired with the ability to record your favorite programs and movies on VHS tapes. The unit flexibly interacts with a number of audio and video formats, including DVD-Video, DVD-R, video CD, audio CD, and CD-R/RW, along with MP3- and WMA-encoded formats and JPEG digital photo CDs. Like other versatile DVD players, the device also offers a selectable display format, which delivers a choice between interlaced or progressive scan depending on whether users own a HDTV-capable TV. Progressive scan displays images at a higher scan rate for a sharper, richer picture, while interlaced is the standard for traditional non-HDTV televisions.

    The VCR is equipped for most common and high-end functions, featuring a program timer, 30-second commercial skip, and even the ability to watch DVDs while recording a TV show. The VCR's hi-fi stereo is bolstered by its built-in MTS decoding, which delivers a clearer audio performance. The DVD player is also compatible with a variety of enhanced audio functions, as its coaxial and audio digital outputs connect to Dolby Digital- and DTS-capable receivers for rich surround sound. The player also supports virtual surround sound, creating an audio environment that broadcasts simulated full theater sound over a two-speaker system.

    The system connects to other components through its component-video, S-video, and composite-outputs, along with the aforementioned digital audio outputs. The player includes a 54 MHz/10-bit video DAC and 192 kHz/24-bit audio DAC, and comes with a full-featured remote control.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Buy this unit!
    This is more of a love hate kinda thing. First I love the fact that it records and plays DVD's that the same time! The only other unit I have found that does that is an Apex. The picture is great both in tape and DVD. Now for the bad! The remote control, its white with black (with is OK) and orange thats right orange lettering with is hard to see when trying to use the unit at first. Also its not a smart remote, ot only works for the unit. Other than the remote it's a great unit, it has all the bells and whistles.

    1-0 out of 5 stars DVD picture freeze
    I have owned this machine 11 months. About a month ago the DVD picture would freeze. The manufacturer attributed the problem to a dirty or stratched DVD. I purchased a new DVD and the problem persisted. Seems this is a recurring problem with all brands.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly as advertised
    I was scared off of Sony and Panasonic by some of the reviews, especially stories of the DVD door problems and the poor service. The specs for this combo DVD/VCR seemed to include everything I wanted. I almost passed on this one too because the dimensions as shown were too big for my cabinet. But I checked the Toshiba web site and found that the dimensions as shown on the Amazon page were incorrect. I notified Amazon and they have corrected the dimensions. I bought it and so far am quite happy with it. The remote has far more buttons than I have ever seen, but the manual is quite thorough. The set up is simple and the DVD door opens and closes quite smoothly. Everything I tried so far works. ... Read more


    2. Toshiba 23HLV84 23" HD-Ready Flat-Panel LCD TV with DVD Player
    list price: $2,099.99

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Enrich your life with the elegance of a flat-screen display and the simplicity of a combination DVD player and television. Toshiba's 23HLV84 saves space while simplifying hookups. Plug it in, pop in a movie, and sit back to enjoy your program in vivid, lifelike high-contrast detail. With minimal glare, no screen curvature, and no irritating high-frequency screen noise, this 23-inch set stands fully apart from its CRT counterparts. Set it on a table using the supplied stand or mount it on the wall using optional brackets for ultimate space efficiency.

    The set's built-in DVD player is compatible with DVD-Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, VCD, audio CD, and recordable CDs filled with JPEG digital photos or MP3/WMA audio files.

    LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, long screen life with no risk of image burn-in, and space savings. This 1,366 x 768-resolution set boasts not only 2 ColorStream HD high-definition (up to 720p) component-video inputs, but also a High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) for a direct digital connection with an HD set-top box or HD satellite receiver (sold separately).

    HD Dynamic Contrast increases contrast and color saturation to create deep, rich images. The intelligent circuitry analyzes both the dark and bright areas of the picture, separately optimizing the dynamic range in each area. Picture enhancements include luminance transient improvement, green enhancement, and blue stretch. This circuit is only active in sports mode and works with all inputs.

    A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction ensures sharp, clean pictures from RF (older VCR, laserdisc) and composite-video signals. Cinema Mode (3:2 pulldown switch) circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

    Dual ColorStream HD component-video inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) provide the ultimate picture quality from high-resolution component-video signals (as from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers). Two sets of rear AV inputs (one with S-video) and a set of front AV inputs foster easy connection with a camcorder or gaming console, and a rear audio output lets you hook the set up with a surround receiver.

    And the 5-watts-per-channel 23HLV84 offers SRS WOW processing, which combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). If that's not enough aural excitement, you can also enjoy 2-channel simulated surround courtesy of Dolby Virtual Surround.

    HDMI is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon.com incompetence
    I ordered a TV for my daughters birthday three weeks in advance. Not only did it not arrive, but Amazon.com didn't even have the decency to respond to any of my e-mails asking where it was, or what happened to it. Do your self a favor, and NEVER buy anything from these idiots!!!!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Decent flat-screen picture, the rest is so-so at best
    I purchased one of these for the bedroom. I thought 24" would be a bit too big, but it's actually a nice size for widescreen letterbox DVDs when it's near the foot of your bed. The unit does take up a lot of space though, and it's heavy. 24-25 inches is kind of an awkward size for a TV--too big for a bedroom but too small for a living room. I thought it'd be convenient to have the DVD and VCR combined with the TV, especially only having one remote. Unfortunately while the TV picture quality's pretty good, the built-in VCR and DVD aren't up to par with units I could have bought separately.

    The way you get the VCR to record, or stop recording, isn't completely intuitive to me, and the programming options are minimal. It doesn't rewind tapes too fast either. The good thing is, you can record a TV program while watching a DVD. The DVD player, however, is even worse--it takes forever to load a disc, move between chapters, etc. and it's very finicky about disc condition, sometimes refusing to load/play ones at all when my Pioneer unit in the living room doesn't even flinch.

    Although it does have the desirable side-mounted speakers, there's only one on each side and they're a paltry 1.5 watts each, hardly adequate for DVD soundtracks or playing music CDs. But, at least is has digital audio output if you want to use an external amp and speakers.

    The remote glows nicely if you've left it in direct light, doesn't have awkward buttons at the very bottom, and you can use many of the buttons by feel, however, a lot of them are same-sized and in a perfect grid pattern, and while the button glows the labels do not, so in the dark they really all look the same. The on-screen menus aren't the best I've seen either.

    Overall though, I'm pretty happy with this product except for the slow and finicky DVD player. The flat screen does provide a good picture, and the speakers aren't too bad for low-volume listening. It's certainly nice to only have one remote for three devices, and which can actually control all the features. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars End of a happy dream
    I really beleived in Toshiba. We had 1 TV that lasted 15 years without a single problem. This model was exactly what I wanted,
    for about 3 months. The DVD player quit. Into the authorized repair shop, 6 weeks and the parts were still not available. I suggested it should be replaced. I shipped mine back, $120.00, and they shipped a new set. Great service I thought. The DVD has quit again 6 months later. I quit! I can't face another fight or expensive return. Skip this model!

    4-0 out of 5 stars a complete entertainment center
    I purchased this tv combo, last October, 2003, when it was first available. I shopped around, extensibly, for a complete unit, in the under $500.00, price category. My real problem was how large the units were, other brands, that I checked out were LARGER, than the Toshiba. I was using the TV in a space that couldn't be adjusted for size. This is why, I rate it 4stars, and not 5, because even though it was a bit smaller than the others, IT IS STILL TOOOO LARGE.
    Everything else is really good about it. I'd call it a QUALITY PRODUCT, and the AMAZON price is great, plus free shipping; hard to beat. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The SD-V55HT from Toshiba is a powerful home theater in a box, featuring a combined high-end DVD/VCR/receiver component and six speakers ready to plug in and play. Enjoy movies in multichannel surround sound, record your favorite shows, play CDs, and listen to the radio with the SD-V55HT. All you need is a TV to complete your home theater setup.

    The SD-V55HT's main component is a complete audio/video receiver, a progressive-scan DVD player, a high-fidelity stereo VCR, and an AM/FM tuner with a total output of 400 watts. Each of the five individual speakers cranks out 60 watts per channel and the subwoofer features 100 watts of power.

    The DVD player in the SD-V55HT utilizes Toshiba's ColorStream Pro progressive-scan video technology to yield vivid colors, clean resolution, and reduced onscreen distortion. Digital cinema progressive scanning, or 3:2 pulldown, reproduces your DVDs in theaterlike clarity.

    The versatile digital picture zoom option lets you can take full advantage of that picture clarity through the ability to magnify a portion of the picture onscreen while in freeze-frame mode or even while watching a DVD in real time. The feature is great for spotting details in movies or even adjusting letterboxed movies to fill your screen. The SD-V55HT also features a wide array of DVD features, including multiple angle selection, a fast-scan option that allows you to fly through DVDs at up to 20 times the regular speed, and three slow motion speeds.

    In addition to playing a full range of DVDs, the SD-V55HT plays CDs and MP3 audio files, so you can enjoy your favorite music. You can also view digital JPEG photos from CDs created in your computer with the SD-V55HT.

    The VCR provides a wealth of features as well, including high-fidelity stereo sound playback and four-head recording. You can play regular VHS tapes as well as high-resolution S-VHS cassettes as well. You won't have to miss a favorite TV show on movie night, because the SD-V55HT lets you record television programs on the VCR while watching a DVD. You can also copy non-copy-protected DVDs onto VHS tapes.

    The VCR in the SD-V55HT is very user-friendly. Its clock automatically sets itself to the local time, and it also logs all available channels into memory the first time you hook it up.

    Make the most of your music and movies with clear, clean sound. The SD-V55HT features pure digital reproduction and includes Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II, and DTS decoders to supply the SD-V55HT's six speakers with a rich, realistic surround-sound experience.

    The SD-5915 features rear-panel composite audio and video inputs, as well as a S-video connection. The front-panel A/V composite input makes it easy for you to hook up a video game, camcorder, or other components.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Packed with features, well worth the price.
    I have been shopping for a new stereo for the past 10 years. I have since moved into a house, acquired multiple televisions, VCRs, DVD players, but no home theatre system. Instead, everything ran through my television speakers. My shelf was loaded with an Xbox game console, a cable box, a low-end DVD player and an unreliable VCR. Spanning 5 shelves, there is no room for much else.

    Then this system came along. My initial budget was $1,200 (About $500 for the receiver and the rest for speakers.) The Toshiba SD-V55HT is an out-of-the box home theater system packed with features to free up my shelf and upgrade my audio life. Priced at less than $300, this was an easy buy. I have had the system now for 2 months and I'm very happy with it.

    The system comes with a VCR and DVD player and stereo receiver housed in one unit. The receiver has 5 different sound modes including Dolby Prologic II, Movie, Music, Matrix and 3-D Surround. In addition, there is also By-Pass which determines the type of audio is being received and handles it accordingly. It has one additional input in the back for my Xbox and another in front for the occasion when I want to hook up my video camera which I haven't tried yet.

    The speakers are lightweight. At 60w each for the 3 front speakers and 2 rear speakers and 100w for the subwoofer, this system is ideal for a small room which I have.

    The setup was a breeze. This is "stereos for dummies". Each of the speakers is color coded with a matching speaker wire. The manual helps you figure out how to get everything in the right place. The trickiest part is probably was getting my TV and cable box wired up properly, but essentially, its standard fare.

    Once you are up and running, you can run the setup to tell the system where the speakers are to optimize the audio experience.

    The system is silver and black with nice lines. The bookshelf speakers are short and small. It fits in well in my messy sun room without standing out.

    The big win is the addition of a DVD player, MP3/CD player and a VCR in one unit. Everything plays great. I have no complaints about the sound but I upgraded from my television speakers.

    I was a little disappointed that the AM/FM radio antennae are independent from the cable antenna. The package comes with a cheap loop antenna for AM and a wire antenna for FM. I pull both along the side of my entertainment console and then hide them both behind a clock. The reception is passable.

    The remote is fairly familiar to handle the VCR, DVD player, MP3/CD player and radio. But you can't give up your other remotes. It doesn't handle the television or the cable box. This is really a bother since my TV is also a Toshiba.

    The MP3 screen display unfortunately doesn't make good use of the space. The left half of the screen displays the track and navigates folders fine enough. The right have is reserved for manually assembling a play list which I will likely never do. I would have rather liked to see a full-screen with each track well displayed and this split screen only when I decide to build a play list.

    The presets for the radio are a bit tricky. Each slot can hold an AM and FM station. This gets confusing when you switch to the radio and the wrong station comes up. I would have preferred that each slot is configured for one station and either AM or FM. A minor nit.

    This plug-n-play system came with a DVD player, a CD and MP3 player, a VCR, AM/FM, cable and two other inputs. No doubt about it, at $299 this is a great price. Comparable systems lacked a DVD player, MP3 player or the VCR for the same price or more. One day, I am may still upgrade to the system of my dreams, but this is a nice step in the right direction.

    Pros: Packed with features and well worth the price.

    Cons: AM/FM seems like a poor add-on.

    Bottom Line: Boat-load of features for a great price for a small room. ... Read more

    This is an EDTV set, which means it's a step closer to high-definition or HDTV than standard TVs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), accurate image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference from, say, speakers), long screen life (with no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning. They also tend to be cheaper and, to some eyes, slightly more natural looking than their plasma flat-panel counterparts.

    The SD-P4000's 3-line comb filter enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

    The SD-P4000 also includes Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive feature, which performs 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; reverse 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    A component-video input grants optimum connection with digital satellite receivers and many digital video recorders, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate most other video gear (including camcorders). A coaxial RF video/antenna input also accepts feeds from older VCRs and cable boxes, while a headphone jack permits private or late-night listening.

    The set also offers closed-caption display, V-Chip parental control, a sleep timer, and a remote control that operates both the TV and the DVD player. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Early Adopters Pick: June 2003. This is the first combination DVD player-TiVo digital video recorder.

    Toshiba's SD-H400 digital media server offers the convenience of no-fee PVR service with the option for immediate upgrades alongside high-quality, progressive-scan DVD-Video playback--all from a single, easy-to-use component. The SD-H400 houses an 80 GB TiVo Series2 PVR that comes with TiVo Basic service, providing free, limited TiVo features right out of the box, with no subscription fees.

    TiVo Basic service offers the ability to control live TV through features like pause, fast forward, rewind, and slow motion playback of live television; three days of electronic program guide; and manual recording capability by time and channel. The SD-H400 is the first device to offer TiVo Basic service.

    The SD-H400's DVD-video section is equipped with a 10-bit/54 MHz video digital-to-analog converter for maximum color purity, detail, and resolution. When connected to a television via the unit's ColorStream Pro component-video outputs, you'll be ready to enjoy Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive technology with either DVDs or TiVo PVR playback. The SD-H400 can also play formats such as DVD-R, DVD-RW, video CD, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3 CDs.

    Because the SD-H400 is built on TiVo Series2 technology, you have the ability to upgrade to full TiVo service to enjoy features such as Season Pass (the ability to record every episode of a program no matter when it airs, automatically), WishList (which finds and records programs that feature your favorite actor, director, or genre), Search by Title (which helps you find any show when all you know is its title), 14 days of program guide data, richer recording options, and an easy-to-use scheduling interface. (Full TiVo service costs $12.95 a month or $299 for a lifetime subscription; visit www.TiVo.com for detailed information.)

    Another upgrade available to the Toshiba SD-H400 is the TiVo Home Media Option, a premium package of networked home entertainment. This configuration takes full advantage of the SD-H400's capabilities as a digital media server. The Home Media Option--an upgrade available via phone or broadband connection--lets you use the SD-H400's USB port to connect the SD-H400 to your wired or wireless home network and PC.

    The Home Media Option adds the following features to the SD-H400: streaming MP3 files and digital photo viewing from a PC or Macintosh for playback through your TV or home-entertainment system, remote scheduling (through which you can schedule TiVo recordings from anywhere you can access the Internet), and connection to another TiVo Series2 PVR within your home (so you can share programs between the two units--for, say, viewing a program in the bedroom that was recorded in the family room, and vice versa). ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tivo is the key
    I purchased the Toshiba SD-H400 about three weeks ago. I had previously owned a Tivo Series 1 recorder. What you basically are getting is a DVD player and Tivo Series 2 box that is light integrated. The functionality for recording is exactly the same as a regular Tivo Box. This means that it is designed to record from broadcast. By broadcast I mean cable or satilite. If you are looking to record things from you DV-Camcorder this is not the box for you. Also if you AV Input setup is complicated (use satilite for some channels and cable for others) this is not the box for you either. What this box excels at is convient recording for television programs. The plus of this box is it supports DVD playback. The DVD playback uses the standard Toshibia menus (not Tivo). The box is in one of two forgrond modes: Tivo Playback or DVD playback. Recording in the background can always occur. I like the Tivo EPG (Electronic Program Guide) data and find it easy to use for recording. My wife likes a single remote system that needs to switching (e.g. TV Input, etc). The box is easy to use and has some options for upgrade. Currently I have upgraded to Tivo Plus and the Home Media Option (this enables playback of MP3, WMA with plugin, and JPEG images from the PC). This is nice due to no hassle of finding the CDDA to play. I would highly remomded this system to people looking for a DVR and wishing to simplify their system setup. For expert users it is cheaper to get seperate units for the same funcionality. One nice thing about the combined box is digital audio output and progressive (including HD) output is enabled from Tivo. This is not possible with the seperate units.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Combination unit is best of both worlds
    This combo unit combines a great DVD player with a full TiVo system, meaning only one box on top of the television. It's super easy to use. I've had it for a week and I love it. Two things to note: 1) If you have a Toshiba Colorstream television, you will need to purchase a cable for the connection. The unit has the ports, but no cable is provided. The cables run $60-$90 or so. 2) There is no 30-second skip button like on TiVo units, which is a drag for skipping commercials, however it has a nice jump-back feature that accounts for your reaction time when hitting the play button during a fast forward. In short, you rarely miss any of the show after the commercial. Also, be sure to go to Toshiba's web site and get the rebate!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product: Good Blend of Value and Function
    I've had it for about a week and did not have any problems setting the system up. I was able to sign into the Tivo service quickly and am in the processing of connecting it into the wireless network and removing the phone lines.

    For those who would like to simplfy their electronic gadgets for their TV, this is an excellent product. I was able to free up a DVD player for another TV in the house.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Love It -- Failed in Seven Weeks
    I wanted to get my wife a Tivo unit since her biggest hobbie is watching TV. The Toshiba SD-H400 intrigued me since the basic Tivo service is free and would save on the subscriptin service. So I bought the unit for Mother's Day.

    I love the unit, and once you get used to it, the Tivo service is really great. However, after a mere seven weeks of use the Live TV function would "lock up". After powering off the unit, doing resets, and reformatting the hard drive, the unit would still lock up on a single frame every 2-3 hours of use. Toshiba Customer Service wasn't much help -- just told me to do a reset. I was able to finally get a replacement unit, but it took a lot of effort.

    Great idea and cool features, but the reliability of the SD-H400 is suspect in my mind.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good value
    I recently got this for $199. Excellent deal for the price. One of the best features is the free TIVO basic. This means if you upgrade later down the line, the resell value of this unit should be decent because you can get fairly good fuctionality without paying $12.95 per month. Or if you want to cancel your full TIVO, it will default to the free basic service. This is one feature real TIVO owners would like to have.

    I also like the fact that I can connect this to just one component input on my TV and both the TIVO and DVD work fine.

    As for noise, I don't hear it at all.

    DVD plays virtually every type disk I tried, including DVD+RW. ... Read more


    11. Toshiba D-VR3 DVD Recorder/VCR Combination

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Delivering great convenience on two fronts, Toshiba's D-VR3 combination DVD recorder and VCR opens a world of video recording and archiving options while saving valuable shelf space. It's a 4-head, hi-fi stereo VCR and a full-featured, progressive-scan DVD player that handles your DVDs, CDs, MP3 music discs, and JPEG-filled digital-photo discs, all wrapped into a component that stands just 3 inches tall. The recorder can store up to 12 hours of audio/video--whether broadcast programming or copies of your home movies to share with loved ones--on a 4.7 GB double-sided DVD-RAM disc and 6 hours on a write-once DVD-R or recordable DVD-RW.

    The D-VR3's disc recorder offers the flexibility of recording on both DVD-RAM--perfect for instant chapter access and for multiple rerecordings--as well as DVD-R, the most widely compatible of the many DVD formats (great for sharing camcorder footage with loved ones). DVD-RW compatibility lets you erase and rewrite, though relatively few players and computer drives will play back DVD-RWs. DVD-RAM discs can be read, written, and erased more than 100,000 times.

    Time Slip lets you use the device like a digital video recorder, or DVR. Because of DVD-RAM's speedy transfer rate, you can view the recorded portion of an ongoing program from the beginning, while still recording the show in progress.

    The D-VR3 features a 181-channel cable-compatible tuner and advance programming accessible to both the VCR and the DVD recorder. Input your own program data or take advantage of built-in Gemstar VCR Plus+ (C3) technology for simplified programming. XDS auto clock set with Daylight Savings adjust ensures that your recorder will always be on time.

    In addition to recording new video content, the D-VR3 lets you transfer and even enhance your favorite video recordings to durable, space-saving discs--a terrific way to archive, preserve, and access your movies and family videos. A convenient front-panel IEEE-1394 input is perfect for direct digital transfers of mini DV camcorder footage.

    For superlative playback, the D-VR3 is equipped with a 10-bit/54 MHz video digital-to-analog converter capable of great color purity and detail. When connected to a high-definition or HD-ready television through its ColorStream Pro component-video outputs, the D-VR3 delivers a progressive-scan DVD picture. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    The D-VR3 also features Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive (3:2 pulldown reversal) for DVD playback. DVD mastering commonly introduces a distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown reversal digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The deck's abundant connections include 2 composite-video and 1 S-video input, 2 sets of stereo analog (left/right) RCA inputs (with a choice, for DVD recording, of uncompressed, linear PCM or, to conserve disc space, Dolby Digital 2.0 audio encoding). The DVD and VCR sections share a single composite-video output and stereo analog audio output (saving input space on your TV or audio receiver), while the DVD player also offers the component-video outputs mentioned above, an S-video output, and a pair of digital-audio outputs (1 coaxial, 1 optical) for channeling Dolby Digital and DTS multichannel surround signals to a compatible digital surround receiver.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    When you are looking for more than just a portable DVD player, try the SD-P5000 from Toshiba. This lightweight, on-the-go DVD player with a 15-inch LCD display also features a built-in television with a home-theater-quality picture. The SD-P5000 is loaded with features and delivers crisp, realistic visuals with rich surround sound.

    The DVD player in the SD-P5000 provides a crystal-clear picture with its enhanced digital processing.

The SD-P5000 uses digital cinema progressive scanning (3:2 pulldown) to reproduce your DVDs in vivid, theaterlike clarity.

    You can take full advantage of that picture clarity with the versatile digital picture zoom option, which lets you magnify a portion of the picture onscreen while in freeze-frame mode or even while watching a DVD in real time. The feature is great for spotting details in movies or even adjusting letterboxed movies to fill your screen. The SD-P5000 also features a wide array of DVD features, including multiple angle selection, a fast-scan option that allows you to fly through DVDs, and slow-motion viewing.

    The SD-P5000 features 3D virtual surround sound through its built-in speakers and easy-to-connect, multichannel optical digital audio output. The player has two headphone jacks so you can share your DVD viewing with a friend.

    The SD-P5000 plays DVDs, DVD-Rs, and CDs, so you can enjoy all your favorite videos and music. You can also play MP3s and view digital JPEG photos from CDs created in your computer.

The optional internal battery can run the player for up to 2.5 hours, and can be easily recharged between viewings in about four hours. A DC power cord is included so you can use the SD-P5000 in the car.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Toshiba’s MD14FP1 combines an FST PURE flat-tube screen and a full-featured DVD player to give you everything you need to enjoy movies in one box. The flat-tube screen is designed to increase the viewing angle and eliminate unwanted room-light reflections.

    The built-in DVD player plays a variety of media--not only prerecorded DVD movies, but also DVD-R (DVD-Recordable) and VCD (Video Compact Disc) movies, CDs and recordable/rewriteable CDs, and JPEG picture files on CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs (though some CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R discs may be incompatible due to laser pickup or disc design issues, and JPEG discs need to be in a compatible format).

    For convenience, three preset picture-quality settings and a programmable one let you quickly change brightness, color, contrast, and tint without having to take the time to go through each one. A new icon-based TV menu lets you select functions quickly from pulldown menus, and menu text can be displayed in English, Spanish, or French.

    The single-disc DVD player offers digital picture zoom for enlarging letterboxed video to fill the screen or magnifying a selected part of the screen. Other key features include fast scan (2x, 4x, 8x, or 20x), slow motion, parental lock and tray lock (a useful feature at tradeshows or to keep little ones from playing with the DVD tray). It also lets you choose from among multiple camera angles (when available), multiple language tracks and multilingual subtitles.

    The sound system includes two double-baffle stereo speakers for great sound separation. Coaxial Dolby Digital sound and DTS Surround Sound output let you send digital, multichannel sound signals to any audio/video receiver with a compatible input. The TV also includes composite video and left/right audio inputs on the front panel, as well as a headphone jack in front for private listening.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lots Of Quality In Small Package
    For such a small, compact package, this Toshiba TV/DVD combo has much going for it.

    First off, the picture quality is very good, with enough settings to allow it to be adjusted any way you want. I've never owned a flat screen tv in any size, and it does reduce glare quite a bit.

    Sound quality is just ok. There are only stereo/mono/SAP settings. No separate bass/treble adjustments like in bigger tv's. But the stereo sound is passable, even when playing audio CD's.

    The DVD player is good with very clear picture. Very nice.

    Remote control is ok, and like some other Toshiba tv reviewers have noted, some of the colors that a couple of the buttons' graphics are printed with are hard to read. Pink graphics on a light grey remote color just don't make it.

    All in all though, this 14" color TV/DVD combo is a great product. I really like it a lot.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Broken twice in 8 months since purchase
    I bought this item at Best Buy for more than the Target price. Two months after I bought it the DVD drawer would not open. It was in the shop for 2 1/2 months while I waited for a part to come in and then 2 months later the TV just died. Since the 90 day warranty for both parts and labor has expired the repair shop said it would be a minimum of $42 cost on labor, though parts are still covered. I am sick that I wasted $250 on a TV that didn't even last a year. I will NEVER buy another Toshiba product. ... Read more

    Looking for a compact, all-in-one television and DVD player? The MD9DP1 from Toshiba combines a 9-inch portable TV with a fully loaded DVD player. This combo unit features built-in stereo speakers with surround-sound output, a wide variety of playback formats, and much more.

    The DVD player in the MD9DP1 provides a clear, crisp picture with enhanced digital processing. You can take full advantage of that picture clarity with the versatile digital picture zoom option, which lets you magnify a portion of the picture onscreen while in freeze-frame mode or even while watching a DVD in real time.

    Keep those discs safely in the player with the tray lock option. When this option is turned on, discs can't be ejected without the proper pass code, ensuring that kids can't get into the player and that your discs stay where you want them to stay.

    Make the most of your music and movies with clear, clean sound. The MD9DP1 sounds great right out of the box, with a built-in MTS stereo tuner and stereo speakers on the side of the unit. When you want an even fuller sound, you can easily hook up the MD9DP1 to a home theater receiver with an RCA-type connection to get a virtual surround-sound experience. The MD9DP1 features Dolby Digital and DTS surround-sound output. A headphone jack is also included to make the most of the MD9DP1's portability.

    The TV is easy to set up and easy to use with a simple, icon-driven menu and one-touch picture preference modes. There are three preset modes that optimize the picture for sporting events, movies, and regular TV viewing. You can also create your own custom preset that remembers your preferred settings for brightness, contrast, color, and tint. The MD9DP1 also includes a sleep timer to let you fall asleep while watching TV.

    At less than 18 pounds, this TV/DVD combo can go anywhere. A DC power cord is included so you can even run the MD9DP1 in the car. The front-panel A/V inputs make it easy for you to hook up a video game, camcorder, or other component.

    Watch all the movies in your video collection in style and convenience with Toshiba's SD-V65HT. The silver and black system includes a space-saving combination DVD player/VCR coupled with a powered 5.1-channel speaker package. The DVD player is equipped with a ColorStream Pro progressive-scan output for superlative images on high-definition and HD-ready televisions, and in addition to full surround processing the system also plays your homemade CDs filled with MP3, WMA, and JPEG sound and image files. The VCR section offers 4-head, hi-fi playback and recording with convenient front-panel inputs for your camcorder, gaming device, or second VCR.

    Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the SD-V65HT's ColorStream Pro DVD player stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

    The SD-V65HT also features Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive feature (3:2 pulldown). DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The speaker package features 4 two-way satellite speakers (front and surround left/right, powered by 90 watts apiece), a larger center-channel speaker (for handling most dialogue and critical sound effects, also 90 watts), and a 150-watt, 7-inch subwoofer to drive home the foundation-shaking bass effects of your favorite movies. All 5 main speakers are acoustically matched for seamless blending.

    Surround processing includes decoding of Dolby Digital, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II (which generates surround output from stereo sources), and an optical digital-audio input facilitates hookup with a CD recorder or alternate surround processor.

    The system's Digital Photo Viewer lets you see digital JPEG photographs on any television; an intuitive onscreen display helps you customize slideshows with a few simple clicks of the remote. You can zoom, rotate, and pan the photos, as well as set the actual viewing time of each slide.

    Other features include picture zoom, two auxiliary video inputs (one with S-video), and a universal remote control.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    If you are looking for an all-in-one television and VCR, check out the MV20P2 from Toshiba. This combo unit combines a 20-inch TV with a two-head stereo VCR.

    The TV is easy to set up and easy to use with a simple, icon-driven menu and one-touch picture preference modes. There are three preset modes that optimize the picture for sporting events, movies, and regular TV viewing. You can also create your own custom preset that remembers your preferred settings for brightness, contrast, color, and tint. The MV20P2 also includes a sleep timer to let you fall asleep while watching TV.

    The VCR in the MV20P2 is equally user-friendly. The VCR's clock automatically sets itself to the local time, and it also logs all available channels into memory the first time you hook it up.

    With the touch of a button, you can skip commercials easily. The commercial skip feature will jump forward 30 seconds on the tape each time you press it, so you can fast-forward without fear of missing your show or enduring another ad. One-touch recording allows you to quickly start to record a show you don't want to miss without the hassle of programming a timer. Of course, you can add up to eight shows into the timer recording mode for later recording as well.

    The front panel A/V inputs make it easy for you to hook up a video game, camcorder, or other components.

    4-0 out of 5 stars NO to MP3's
    I ordered MD13P1 TV/DVD combo from Amazon.com They said it would take from 5 to 10 days for Delivery .It only took 3 Days 5 stars to amazon. The discription said it would play mp3's nope notta will not Play them. As for every thing else works just GREAT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice for Bedroom
    I bought this item for my wife to watch DVDs in the bedroom since she can't figure out how to use the bigger SONY DVP CX-850 in the living room. The convenience of having this all-in-one unit perched on top of a dresser is both easy to use and space conscious. It's smart too, it knows when you pop open the DVD drawer, that it should switch to DVD mode for viewing. This is great for my wife who is "techno-challenged". The picture quality is exceptional and the remote is fairly easy to figure out. It has front AV jacks if ya wanna add other components like Playstation or Nintendo. There's even a headphone jack for private listening while your partner is asleep. All in all, it's a solid purchase. I got mine from eBay for $91.00... ... Read more

    20. Toshiba SD-V391 Progressive Scan DVD-VCR Combo (Silver)
    list price: $219.99

    Sales Rank: 7408
    Average Customer Review: 2.84 out of 5 stars
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The progressive-scanning SD-V391 is a convenient, one-unit source for high-quality DVD and VHS entertainment. The DVD deck plays a variety of optical content, including DVD-Video, DVD-R, audio CD, CD-R, CD-RW, and video CD, as well as MP3 and WMA (Windows Media Audio) music files recorded on CD-R and CD-RW discs. A four-head, hi-fi VCR provides exciting stereo playback for your entire library of VHS tapes. You can even copy non-Macrovision-protected DVDs to videotape--perfect for sharing edited, DVD-based home movies with loved ones.

    Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the SD-V391 stands ready to deliver the full potential of DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. The SD-V391 also performs 3:2 pulldown (Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive). DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    Into digital photography? This dual-deck model is a perfect complement to your hobby. Its JPEG feature makes it easy to view digital photo shots burned to recordable CDs from a variety of digital cameras. The unit's array of home-theater-ready video connections includes composite-, S-video, and ColorStream Pro component-video outputs (the VCR requires its own composite-video or RF audio/video connection). The DVD player's internal digital-to-analog converters work at 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution to ensure optimum sonic quality from a range of digital program material.

    Two sets of left/right analog-audio outputs (one each for the DVD player and the VCR) channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals from DVDs can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. In addition, readily accessible front-panel AV inputs permit easy connection for a game console or a camcorder for simple dubbing of home movies to the VHS deck.

    For enhanced picture quality during VHS playback, the four-head hi-fi VCR uses a pair of 19-micron video heads, which deliver exceptional (near SP) picture quality of content recorded and played back in the extended play (EP) mode. Commercial skip lets you pass over commercials during playback. Other features include one-year, eight-event programming, high-speed (200x) rewind and fast-forward, index skip, auto head cleaner, and auto clock set--no more flashing "12:00"!

    5-0 out of 5 stars nice unit
    I always enjoy writing good reviews...almost as much as I enjoy writing really bad ones. This is a good one. This unit is very nice to look at, it feels nice when you push the remote control buttons, and it even makes very nice recordings. I should have bought an editing VCR years ago, but instead I play with multiple VCR's, my PC, DVD players, phonograph players, cassette players and recorders and whatever I can patch in to my menagerie in genersal. I didn't really need another DVD player but since it came with this machine I figured it never hurts to have another source to throw into the mix. I love this machine. It makes really nice sounds when you fast forward or reverse, the remote control feels nice in my hand and has a good feel when I hit a button. I just completed my latest video creation using this Toshiba SD-V391 as the middle and main recorder for my mind-boggling production, whatever may be at fault with my production is not to be blamed on the Toshiba. To make a long story short....it worked great and after making the original tape at SP speed and playing it in my Sony and copying it back on the Toshiba, it is actually hard to tell which is the original tape.

    I guess my only complaint is that they just don't make em like my old RCA Hi-Fi VHS recorder from 1985 which had a VU meter and seperate audio input controls etc etc...but which cost $250. The remote control does have some absolutely illegible red type on a dark grey background in one section that baffles the mind and causes serious eye strain when attempting to make out the letters. I'm used to little hard to see buttons, but when you can't even read the type with your glasses on under a good light you gotta think someone screwed the pooch. It's just one of those things you have to work around and soon you are familiar with the functions of the buttons and don't need to read em anyhow.

    The DVD works well and when I tried some CD-R disc's with photos and MP3 files it showed and played them as advertised. I had some trouble with some MP3 files but it may have been a fault of mine when I did something somewhere along the line before they got to the Toshiba. I haven't messed with MP3 files for a couple of years and need to play with them more now that they could actually be usefull to me.

    When you insert a tape or DVD and eject one or both of the afformentioned, it makes a nice sound and gives you a feeling of confidence and pride of ownership. These things are important. My Sony is starting to make rough and clunky noises whenever I hit the eject button...just a matter of time before it achieves critical mass and fractures a servo... or worse! I have a JVC Super VHS ET in line too and that has been a good, if not inspiring, machine for a couple of years. Anyhow, I would recommend this machine to anyone looking for a DVD/VHS combo and likes to play with editing sound and images. The input select button on the remote control is nice, once you figure out where it is..haha. I would buy this machine just for the VHS..oh yeah, I did...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Unit
    This unit is simple to set up and use. Good Warranty, its great looking and has simple hook ups. Easy to connect to use with an inexpensive TV like my spare room TV with just a cable connector on the back. In from antenna (cable) and out to TV. (it does have s-video and other imputs and outputs if you need them) It works like a dream with a full feature remote. Play and watch a DVD, hit the one touch record button and your recording your personal DVD's to the VCR. (haven't tried a rental but I am sure most are copy protected anyway) So simple to use with excellent picture and sound quality. Will also play DVD-R and DVD+R. Haven't tried CD's but wouldn't use this unit for that anyway. You can't go wrong for the money. Now if it lasts as long and is as dependable as the Toshiba TV I have in my media room I will be very happy. Don't be afraid of this unit. Its Great!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Toshiba is sending me a new unit!!
    I bought mine in Oct. of 2003. I have the same problem with the DVD player that others have been complaining about. I called Toshiba and a VERY nice lady is sending me a new updated model as soon as I send in my old unit. The trick is to call Toshiba's Customer Service number (800) 631-3811.

    This certainly is much better than Panasonic or Sony has treated me in the recent past with my VCR players. I highly recommend anything Toshiba!!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Loved it till it broke
    Loved the easy hook-up, easy use of remote, looked nice and played fine. Purchased 11-06-03, and the DVD part stopped without warning 05-29-04. The kids never touched this one; it was all for Mommy and therefore subject to only gentle use. Now if you put a DVD in, it takes a long time to load, then comes up "ERR." And now the door makes a grinding noise when it opens. Severely disappointed, heartbroken, etc. Apparently VCRs, DVD players, and these combo units are meant to be disposable - work six months and then discard. If so, we may as well disregard brand names and buy the cheapest ones available. Forget quality, reliability, and pride of workmanship - those are things of the past.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Globalization: You get what you pay for (and deserve)
    Like cheap prices on products made in China? Do you actually expect them to work like Japanese electronics manufactured in the 1980's just because the Japanese brand is printed on the cabinet? Get real. There's no such a thing as a free-lunch. DVD margins are too low. So is quality. Period.

    If your unit is misbehaving, try to cool it off. I have two of these gizmos (one upstairs and one downstairs), and I when I re-arranged my cabinets to give them more air and when I run them with the cabinet doors open, they behave. When they warm up, they stop running properly. Both units suffer from a heat-related transient defect that probably comes from mediocre manufacturing quality and components.

    All this delight derives from paying employees $400 per year and keeping them in working conditions that would scare an American coal miner during the 1890's. ... Read more
