Toshiba HD-E1 HD-DVD Player (1080i)


While there is no clear winner in the home high-definition optical storage feud yet, Toshiba has reaffirmed its direction with the release of the HD-E1, an affordable HD-DVD player for your next home entertainment revamp.

Toshiba HD-E1 review


The cheapest standalone next-gen disc player

Cheaper than Blu-ray ; Great picture quality

No 5.1 analogue outputs ; Poor remote

This HD DVD player couples an eye-opening price with some great pictures, making it a serious player in this new market

Toshiba HD-E1


Toshiba's HD-E1 is the first HD-DVD player we've had through the office. While we looked at the Qosmio G30 notebook with a built in HD-DVD drive, the ...

Brilliant image quality, great DVD upscaling, online capabilities in the future, competitively priced

Slow interface, no 1080p support

While it is missing 1080p support and has a somewhat sluggish interface, the HD-E1 is a well priced High Definition player that supports both DVD and HD-DVD, and outputs exceptional image quality.

Toshiba HD-E1 HD DVD player - Pocket-lint


Picture quality, styling, playback standard DVDs

Format war question, no 1080p playback

In an attempt to bring the price down, Toshiba has cut some corners, mainly the lack of 1080p output support, however for most users this won't be a problem and means that you can get a piece of the next generation DVD action without having to break...

Toshiba HD-E1 review


The first HD-DVD player we tested, this high-definition disc spinner is now showing its age…

Often brilliant, occasionally frustrating, this is an intriguing early stab at the high-definition-disc future. It’s by no means complete, but if you fancy dipping a toe in the HD water without blowing a fortune, it could still be worth a go

Toshiba HD-E1 HD DVD Player


Toshiba throws the cat among the pigeons with a surprisingly affordable HD DVD player.

Toshiba has really raised the bar with the HD-E1, producing a high quality HD DVD player at a very affordable price. Although £350 is a lot of money to many people, considering that a Blu-ray player will cost you well over twice as much, the HD-E1 is a...

Toshiba HDE1 DVD Player overview



Expert review by: Jeremy Roche (

Toshiba HD-E1


If you have a big-screen TV in your living and you're hungry for HD content, the Toshiba HD-E1 delivers great picture quality.

USB and Ethernet for expansion ; Currently cheaper than Blu-ray players ; HD DVD movies look great on HD-ready TVs ; Upscaled regular DVDs well

No support for 1080p "full HD ; No analog 5.1-channel audio ; Remote control not backlit ; Some performance issues ; Locked to Region 4 for DVD

So far Blu-ray has the upper hand in terms of movie studio support, but HD DVD is cheaper to produce. Still, it remains to be seen whether HD DVD or Blu-ray will triumph as the successor to DVD, and unless you're willing to take a gamble, we'd...

Toshiba HD-E1


Flying in the face of current inflationary trends Toshiba's entry-level HD DVD deck has recently had its price cut. A step-up model which adds 1080p output to the HD-E1 will soon be on sale for £450

Cheaper than Blu-ray, Great picture quality

No 5.1 analogue outputs, Poor remote

This HD DVD player couples an eye-opening price with some great pictures, making it a serious player in this new market

Toshiba HD-E1


SmartHouse takes the Toshiba HD DVD player HD-E1 for a spin, but wonders if the stunning hi-def prowess of HD DVD makes up for a lack of features.

HD image quality ; fast loading times ; nice design

Video judder on some discs

An extremely capable entry-level high-definition player
