Toshiba BDX5300

 

The Toshiba BDX5300 offers a lot of features in a Wi-Fi-capable, 3D-supporting Blu-ray player, but its design choices and finicky interface hurt it.

Built-in Wi-Fi. Supports 3D

Few connection options. Cheap-feeling remote. Interface feels sluggish

Toshiba BDX5300 review

 

The Toshiba BDX5300 is a Wi-Fi enabled Blu-ray deck with a smattering of internet services that's available at a decent price, but is it any good?

Integrated Wi-Fi ; Hi-def video performance

Limited streaming TV services ; Slow disc loading ; Basic menus

Squarely aimed at DVD upgraders, this hi-def lightweight betrays its OEM origins with a characteristically cornball Shenzen menu.

BBC iPlayer, Wi-Fi and 3D Blu-ray support in a budget chassis

Smart TV services ; 3D Blu-ray playback ; Digital file support ; Low price

Basic user interface ; High relative price ; Awkward remote control ; No MKV playback

Although the Toshiba BDX5300 puts in a fine effort in terms of core features, the presence of the BBC iPlayer/Netflix, Wi-Fi and 3D Blu-ray support, there are more polished, easier to use and smarter 3D decks around. But those on a tight budget should...

Avoid this product!

 

I made the mistake of buying this piece of junk before researching it online (since I've usually had luck with Toshiba). Turns out that quite a few of the blu-ray players are horribly defective: spontaneous shutdowns during playback, frozen screens,...

A waste of your money

 

I purchased this blu ray player a short 3 months ago and now I can only turn it off by unplugging it... after it freezes every single time I try to log on to Netflix. It freezes, skips and shuts down but not off. I am disgusted.

Great DVD Player at a nice price

 

I\'m using this DVD Player in my main system with a Hi-Def TV and a Sony AV reciever. Compact design and great picture quality work well with my setup. I am very satisfied!

Frequently freezes, menu skips, shuts down

 

Interface was slow, menu would skip back to home for no reason while navigating it, sometimes system would shut down for no reason. It did not play certain video formats it is advertised to play. Navigating the menus was so frustrating I returned this...
