Great high definition and DVD upscaling playback, impressive feature list

No 7.1 support, slightly lags at times, relatively expensive

While the HD-XE1 is without a doubt the best HD-DVD player on the Australian market, it's also the most expensive. Non-enthusiasts may find the HD-XE1's asking price a little high, and ultimately may be better served by a more affordable model.

Toshiba HD-XE1 HD DVD player review

 

The world might be slowly bowing towards Blu-ray, but that hasn't stopped Toshiba releasing its second HD DVD player in the UK. This time it's the company's flagship model, the HD-XE1. But is it any good? We take a closer look. The HD-XE1 is the...

Picture quality, 1080p support, HD DVD disc features like accessing menus mid film

Not much better than the company's HD-E1 or Microsoft's HD DVD drive for Xbox 360

Good, but there are cheaper alternatives out there, even from Toshiba that will serve your needs

Toshiba's flagship HD-DVD player is getting on a little by the standards of the modern market, but quality build and fine performance see it through

It's got a few grey hairs but the XE1 is still one of the best HD-DVD – not to mention DVD – players for the cash

Toshiba's high-end HD DVD player offers a plethora of features and an attractive price.

The true home cinema enthusiast has probably been waiting for a player to arrive with HDMI 1.3, 1080p output and an Ethernet port. But what that early adopter probably didn’t expect was for all that to come at such an affordable price. The HD-XE1 is a...

For getting the very best out of HD DVDs you really can't go wrong with the Toshiba HD-XE1. The extra audio outputs, 1080p support and HDMI 1.3 make this one of the best next-generation DVD players on the market. The only thing it needs to make it the...

Picture quality ; Remote control ; Dolby TrueHD support ; Good quality DVD upscaling ; Build quality

Blue lights everywhere ; Basic front panel display ; Still fairly expensive

If you backed Betamax in the 80s and are wary of getting stung again, you could opt for the LG's Super Multi Blu player, which will play both Blu-ray and HD DVD. It's important to remember, however, that advanced HD DVD features, such as interactivity...

For getting the very best out of HD-DVDs, you really can't go wrong with the Toshiba HD-XE1.

Solid picture quality ; Remote control ; Dolby TrueHD support ; Good-quality DVD upscaling ; Build quality

Blue lights everywhere ; Basic front panel display

While the HD-XE1 is a superb player, it's still worth pointing out that the format war between Blu-ray and HD DVD is still raging. Even with today's announcement by Paramount, HD DVD still has less studio support than Blu-ray, but there are still...

Toshiba HD DVD Player HD-XE1

 

We reviewed Toshiba's HD DVD HD-E1 a few months back and we were quite surprised with its video quality and affordability. Now, we take the Toshiba HD DVD HD-XE1 for a ride to see whether the extra hundred dollars that comes with the player's price tag...

Picture quality; tons of connectivity options; firmware updates; ease of use

Long remote control; big size; a little on the expensive side

After the big bang of the HD disc format war, the dust has settled a little.
