Toshiba SD490 review


Toshiba's SD490 mid-range upscaling DVD player with limited connections

Good picture quality ; Easy to use ; Includes DivX playback

No USB port or memory card slot

A modest price for a big-brand DVD player that has basic features and connectivity, but generally very good upscaled picture quality
