BEWARE of Toshiba and the 3950 DVD Player -- a piece of junk


Our Toshiba 3950, purchased from Best Buy, broke after very light use within 3 months. The machine one day simply refused to recognize when a DVD was inserted into the machine. The LED message on the machine said "no disc". So, we called Toshiba. ...

Features & cost

Common problem - "no disc". Hard to watch a DVD with this problem.

Toshiba SD-3950 DVD Player


Summary Intro: This is probably one of the best DVD players under $100. You can find several models at Wal-Mart or Target, but I doubt any of them are name brand. The Toshiba SD-3950 provides a lot of value for such a low price. It ...

Good Picture, Bookmark Memory, Progressive Scan, Price

Control Lockup solved only by unplugging it !


I wanted a less than $100 DVD player, and at least three separate sales associates at Best Buy steered me to this player given my wish list. Besides budget, I thought I may want progressive scan capability in the future, I wanted a few other formats ...

Basic functions work as intuitively expected.

The controls locked up twice, so I returned it.

Toshiba 3950 not worth owning


May be good for a one-time use in skeet shooting.

Has playability issues and the resulting lag-effect rendersthe movie unwatchable.

The Toshiba SD3950 DVD Player: A Great Bargain!!!

Toshiba SD-3950 DVD Player


Finding a DVD player for cheap is not hard to do, but with that cheap price comes a cheap product. Finding an inexpensive DVD player with enough features to make most happy is not necessarily that easy of a task either. Toshiba has come up with a ...

Easy to use and setup, not very expensive

Not as good as the DVP-NS425P in removing artifacts

Great machine if it would only play.


Lots of features for the money.

Glitch in the machine hinders usability.

Toshiba SD-3950 DVD Player


The Sony DVD player I bought did not meet my expectations, and so I checked out other DVD players in the same playing field. The SD3950 stacked up with one advantage: price. It is 50 bucks less than the Sony 725P! Of course, at $79.99, I figured I co ...

Less fussy than the Sony, easier to set up, actually works as advertise!

Remote buttons are not intuitive. Remote TOO BIG.
