Great Value -- for 2002


After two full years of moderately busy operation, I have found this product to be a good value for 2002. I wish it did more with MP3, but it was a VERY good deal at the time. I would probably look elsewhere in the future. SPEED OF OPERATION The only ...

Do it all?


The versatility of this DVD player makes it an attractive choice. The ability to play audio CDs as well as CD-Rs with MP3 music makes it very handy for parties. Tap it into random shuffle mode and off you go. Just be sure to press the Repeat button...

Bargain DVD player


We don't watch tons of movies - or 4 year old watches more than we do. And we don't have a big screen TV, so I did not want to spend a lot on a DVD player. Got this one for $100 and it is worth what we paid.

Great picture quality and sound

You always get what you pay for


I bought this changer because it was on sale in for $99 only. As soon as I received it, I realized that it is so big that it would not fit on any shelf in my entertainment center. I still managed to connect it, to verify functionality....

Good DVD and VCD picture quality

Very bulky, MP3 CDs are limited to 650MB

Product Specifications

Toshiba offers performance enhancements and convenience features throughout its entire DVD line, and the SD2805 DVD player exemplifies the company's commitment to high-performance and high-value. Its 5-disc carousel offers loading of multiple discs even while the unit is playing back a disc. It also allows for complete Random Play from all loaded discs. ColorStream component video outputs compatible with today's finest televisions allow for delivery of stunningly colorful images. Parallel video output lets you connect your Toshiba DVD player via Composite, S-Video, and/or Interlaced Component video outputs and watch simultaneous images from each connected TV. The bookmark feature allows 5 digital 'bookmarks' to save favorite locations/scenes on discs loaded inside the player. The bookmark feature provides quick access to those scenes the user wants to view again, or demonstrate to friends. Coaxial and optical TosLink digital audio output sends the audio signal to an audio/video receiver in its digital form allowing access to the Dolby Digital /DTS track encoded on the DVD disc. MP3 audio compatibility expands the players' functionality to include playback of custom music collections encoded via MP3 digital audio format onto CD-R or CD-RW media. 3-D Virtual Surround Sound provides a simulated surround sound effect from sources that contain only a stereo soundtrack. Convenient when playing older DVD films or for use with home theaters not equipped with Dolby Surround, Dolby ProLogic, or Dolby Digital playback systems. Picture Zoom interactive feature allows you to select an area of the picture you want to zoom in on and magnify. Enhanced digital processing during moving video or freeze-frame playback produces superior color fidelity and resolution, even when you're zoomed in. Also can be used to expand letter-box-only films to increase the viewable area on-screen.
