Toshiba's slimline Blu-ray player looks sleek and compact

 

Great image quality saves the Toshiba BDX2000 from being just another mundane, low-cost Blu-ray player.

Terrific image quality

Clumsy remote control, annoying front flap

Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray player review

 

Like a Phoenix from the flames, Toshiba has at last put pride where it belongs and jumped on the Blu-ray bandwagon and we're glad it did.

Detail from Blu-ray, DVD upscaling, colours, music

No Wi-Fi connectivity, no built-in memory, expensive

Late to the Blu-ray market it may be, but this deck treats both Blu-ray and DVD discs with rare skill. For Toshiba, it's just a shame that a lot of other manufacturers got there first and are now starting to introduce features that the BDX2000 lacks

Late to the Blu-ray market it may be, but this deck from the inventors of the once-rival HD-DVD format treats both Blu-ray and DVD discs with rare skill. For Toshiba, it's just a shame that a lot of other manufacturers got there first and are now...

Toshiba BDX2000 review

 

The Toshiba BDX2000 is a pretty decent Blu-ray player at an affordable price. We wouldn't have expected the company to put its heart into supporting the format that crushed HD DVD, but it's done an impressive job with this machine. We'd love it even...

Attractive styling ; Excellent picture quality ; Decent menu speed ; Full support for profile 2.0

Slow disc-load speed ; Hideous remote control ; Sluggish handling of BD-Live content ; No in-built storage

Conclusion The Toshiba BDX2000 is a good player at a reasonable price. Sony's likeable and similarly priced BDP-S360 is a slightly better player, but doesn't come with the LoveFilm deal that makes the BDX2000 such good value for money. We prefer the...

At first glance, the slim Toshiba BDX2000 - the company's first Blu-ray Disc player - seems unexceptional, with limited extras and a boxy remote. But when you pop a Blu-ray disc into it and see what the BDX2000 can do, you'll realise what a bargain it is.

Great image quality saves the Toshiba BDX2000 from being just another mundane, low-cost Blu-ray player.

'The Blu-ray versus HD DVD format war ended back in February 2008, when Toshiba announced that it was halting production and development of its HD DVD players. And now, after months of digging its heels in and avoiding the inevitable, the company has...

Toshiba's first Blu-ray player is neither a runaway success nor a shocking failure - it simply fails to excite.

Although it’s a little slow in operation, and missing out on features like network media playback, the BDX2000 does have price in its favour. Even so, competition is getting tougher at this end of the market. If you value options like audio test tones...

A decent first effort from Tosh, but lacking when compared to newer models from Sony

It looks good, is affordable, and does a good job of Blu-ray playback

Sketchy connectivity and old-school BD Live clunkiness let the team down

Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-Ray Player

 

Toshiba is rightly proud of its flagship Blu-Ray player. The visual impact of the device is one of its key assets, as the front panel is completely covered by a flip-down plastic section through which you can see the basic information relating to run...

Toshiba BDX2000KY Blu-ray player

 

So Toshiba finally bites the Blu-ray bullet two years after its own HD format bit the dust. Such patience it seems is a virtue.

Excellent 1080p/24 Blu-ray picture quality ; Full HD audio decoding, even with secondary audio ; Excellent value for money

Poor PAL DVD picture quality ; Deinterlacing errors with 1080i/50 film source material ; Clunky firmware upgrade Procedure

Toshiba’s original claim to HD fame was its development of and support for the HD DVD format, which was a rival to Blu-ray. It actually beat Blu-ray to market, with the first HD DVD models launching in Australia in late 2006. Yet less than 18 months...
