Toshiba BDX2700

 

While its spec sheet looked promising, the BDX2700 was a little disappointing once we got out hands on it. Its design is a far cry from the sleek and slender exteriors offered by Samsung and Sony, and it also wound up being the slowest Blu-ray player...

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, Pandora, and Blockbuster streaming; built-in Wi-Fi; 7.1 analog outputs

Slowest operational speed we've tested this year; competing players offer more streaming media services; not DLNA-compliant; somewhat bulky design

The Toshiba BDX2700 is currently a little cheaper than other midrange Blu-ray players and includes 7.1 analog outputs, but otherwise there's little reason to favor it over faster models with better features.

Toshiba BDX2700 Blu-ray Player Review

 

Toshiba is finding itself adrift amidst a sea of Blu-ray players with its BDX2700, but the Blu-ray player has everything you could need: high quality BD playback and streaming movies and music.

Decent networking features ; Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n support built-in ; Great deinterlacing and scaling ; Great styling

Creates lots of RF interference over HDMI ; Loud transport ; Low build quality

Toshiba BDX2700 Blu-ray PlayerReview

 

HD what? One of the last holdouts from the high def disc format war has produced one of the best Blu-ray players you can buy -- for a bargain!

It took Toshiba a little while to join the Blu-ray party, but the BDX2700 was well worth the wait. While it's not their very first player, it's still an early model for the company. It's obvious that they wanted to take their time and get things right....

"Stay AWAY... TOSHIBA lies and refuses to back products."

 

I also bought a toshiba product believing they were a reputable brand. It was a top of the line dvd blue ray player to be specific and boy was I wrong. The DVD Player barely work 5 months then started freezing and randomly shutting off. You had to...

Great features to bad they don't last.

Craps out in few months

Easily better than the reviews state

 

Overal this is a great blu-ray player at an amazing price. The only two things I have not used are the Blockbuster and Vudu players. If they're anything like the Netflix or Pandora then I'm sure they're very nice. Bottom line, highly recommended...

Excellent picture quality. Great Netflix and Pandora interfaces and controls. Wi-Fi is flawless and connects within seconds of turning on the unit. The sound quality is amazing for true HD sound. Regza-link to a Toshiba TV works perfect as well

Yes, it is a little slow loading discs but not SO much slower than comparable models (within 10-15 seconds). Lack of internal memory is a con but there's a USB 2.0 port on the back and USB drives are fairly inexpensive anyway

Only works for a week

 

the first unit worked for about 5 movies over 2 weeks and then said it couln't connect to our wi-fi and yet after we did all the unplugging and re-plugging and connecting it still wouldn't work yet the wi-fi worked fine. So we exchanged for a new unit....

Great when it works

doesn't work for long

Not perfect but much better than what you have read!

 

I originally decided to purchase the LG BD570 instead of this unit due to a few poor reviews and many quality red flags from other reviews. I was not at all impressed with the LG. The tray was uncomfortable to load discs into and the DVD picture...

Nice looking. Great picture for Blu-Ray and DVD

Reliability is the biggest concern
