Toshiba SD4700 review: Toshiba SD4700


Toshiba SD4700

DVD-Audio capable; MP3 CD playback support; very good progressive-scan video performance; aspect-ratio control; good value.

Artifacts in 4:3 interlaced mode; no bass management with DVD-Audio.

Toshiba's SD4700 has everything that the demanding A/V connoisseur could ask for: a nearly flawless progressive-scan picture, DVD-Audio support, and a bargain price tag to boot. DTV owners: Put this player on your shortlist.

Great at everything but MP3s


My husband and I have been searching for a DVD player that would do everything we want (DVD-A, DVD-V, VCD 1.1 and VCD 2.0, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3s with Long File Name support, Random play for CD-ROMs and MP3 CDs, etc.), and thought we had found it with this...

Absolutely awesome VCD decoder. Crystal clear, even when paused and ff or rew.

Extremely restrictive on MP3 compatibility.

Good except for the price


I bought this for $200. At that price i expected more than just a regular dvd player. You can buy those for $79. But thats just what i got. It was simple to set up, and i works fine, and i like that you can play cd's on it. I also like the feature...

Simple, easy to set up.

Too expensive for its quality.

Toshiba DVD SD4700


I had purchased this DVD player earlier this year (July 2002) when I bought my receiver (Yamaha HTR-5490), which I reviewed a couple of months ago.

DVD-Audio capabilities, as well as VCD and MP3 playability

No multi disc, just one. Could get confusing.

Have problems playing some Paramount DVD if video requires more than one disk. I know it is not the disk because they work on other players(Sony, Samsung). This unit is not affected by heat as much as Sony and does not get lost or repeat chapters on...

Great picture

Terrible remote, won't play 2nd disk of some Paramount DVDs

Love DVD-Audio


After spending much time researching which progressive scan DVD player to purchase, I chose this model. My old DVD player was a Toshiba SD-2108 and it still works great, so I seriously considered getting another Toshiba. Besides progressive scan, I...

Progressive Scan makes a difference


I have had a Mitsubishi 55809 HDTV for a while and had been using a Yamaha DVS-5270 DVD player. I thought the picture was sharp and had good color saturation. I assumed that since the Mitsubishi incorporated 3:2 pulldown and line doubling circuits,...

Progressive Scan, support for multichannel DVD-Audio

Analog output on the low side

Owner has an HDTV with it!


The DVD player is very nice. If you have an HDTV, than you are in for amazing movies and other DVD's. The main problem with this is the fact that when you use it, bars usually come up onto the screen of your HDTV, unfortunatly, if you leave them there,...

Great picture, fairly easy to use

setup is confusing, especially with an HDTV

A Real Winner Among The Progressive DVD Players!


Over all, this player has the best picture and sound, I've seen, for the price. The 16:9 viewing is awesome. If you have a widescreen HDTV, this is the way to go. The picture quality is crystal clear with no distortion in 16:9 mode. The unit itself...

Awesome Picture, Ease of use, and Price

No light on the remote and an Annoying thumb control.
