Toshiba HD-EP30 review

 

The Toshiba HD-EP30 is a good, low-cost way of getting into HD movies. It offers an upgrade to 1080p over the HD-E1. Our only major complaint is the lack of analogue audio outputs. Solid HD and upscaled DVD performance wins it our respect

1080p/24p support ; Picture quality ; Sound quality ; Easy to use ; Plays HD DVDs from anywhere in the world

No analogue 5.1 audio outputs ; A bit slow to play discs ; No multi-region DVD support

The nearest equivalent Blu-ray player would probably be low-end Sony BDP-S300, which costs around £300. If you want to be platform independent, perhaps you should wait until the Samsung dual player comes out

Toshiba HD-EP30 HD DVD Player

 

Features-for-money, HD DVD players certainly appear to be beating their Blu-ray counterparts. Here's yet another example...

There's no question that the HD-EP30 represents superb value for money, boasting a killer feature list and awesome hi-def picture quality for around the £200 mark. The only question is whether you should opt for the pricier HD-EP35 or hold out for one...

Toshiba HD-EP30

 

Considering Toshiba's original entry-level HD DVD player, the HD-E1, only launched towards the end of 2006 at a price of £450, it's remarkable that its direct replacement, the HD-EP30, is widely on sale for less than half as much

Low price, Up to 1080p/24fps output, Includes Ethernet LAN port

Lacks picture settings, HDMI v1.2 not 1.3, No analogue multichannel audio output

With improved technology and a reduced price, Toshiba continues to make HD DVD an attractive proposition.
