Toshiba SD3900 review

 

Toshiba SD3900

Progressive-scan output; solid 3:2 pull-down detection on filmed material; six zoom modes; improved MP3 and photo playback.

Doesn't play Enhanced CDs; awful remote; 3:2 pull-down sometimes engages during 30fps video.

While it delivers serviceable performance, the SD3900 is bested by other similarly affordable prog-scan DVD players.

Toshiba SD-3900 DVD Player Reviewed

 

Several years ago, when Toshiba introduced the first DVD player, my staff and I (from my former publication) were among the first to review it. We pulled that player from its packaging and quickly moved it into our audition room,......

The workhorse that drives your home system

 

This dvd player is the main unit in my home audio/video system. In the past I mostly used it for playing music but since I bought my new TV I was able to start using the S-video hookup to enjoy some quality movie watching. Video: Having a ...

Good player......... until it breaks

 

Ive had this DVD player for almost a year now and it has has worked pretty well. I purchased based on the Toshiba name, the features (Progressive scan/DTS/Color Stream Pro/Optical and Digital Coaxial out), the sub $100 price, and the design. It is ...

Listen to the choir sing baby!!!

 

Ok, so, if you have read my review on the Pioneer DV-340, you will see that I had to go out and buy another DVD player. It was not in my budget to buy the "latest and greatest" because I had *just* bought a DVD player already. However, since the ...

Best bang for your buck

Don't put anything on top of it...

Has a few problems not obvious until you owned it a while

 

This is not a bad unit in that it was easy to set up. It has a nice number of features, and it does what it's supposed to do... play DVD's... well sort of. I found this unit had a few annoying short-comings that showed up after owning the unit for a ...

size, cheap, quick to setup, has optical output.

lousy design for IR, fussy reader for data track.

Toshiba SD-3900 DVD Player

 

Reads a lot of media formats: DVD,DVD-R,DVD+R,DVD-RW,CD-R, CD-RW,VCD,SVCD,XVCD, MP3, WMA, JPEG stills

Does not play enhanced music CDs (which are becoming more popular now), flimsy build quality

Versatile, but music lovers should stay away

 

The Toshiba SD-3900 is an inexpensive progressive-scan DVD player that plays almost every format of popular media except enhanced music CDs. Compatibility I bought the Toshiba SD-3900 because it was versatile, but also inexpensive - under $100 at m ...

Toshiba SD-3900 DVD

 

I Just bought the Toshiba SD-3900 at my local Best Buy. I am upgrading from a Panasonic RV32. I am not utilizing the progressive scan output, as I do not have an HDTV yet. The DVD player is easily hooked up out of the box. The set-up menu required a...

Video quality is very good ; Price is right

No video black level/PLUGE setting as advertised
