SD5109 Offers the Most Bang for Your Buck

 

Price, Progressive-Scan, detailed remote, quality, dual tray, plays DVDs, CDs, and HDCDs.

Somewhat slow load times, beeps every time a remote button is pushed.

SD5109 Offers the Most Bang for Your Buck

 

The Toshiba SD5109 is my second dedicated DVD player (for a short intolerable period I used my Home PC with output to my TV). My first player was the Sony DVP-S360. This player was replaced due to excessive spin noise from the disc tray as well as...

First Decent DVD with 480P

 

Originally purchased an open box SD5109 for $399 to hook up to my Mitsubishi WS55857 (55" 16:9 ratio) through a Yamaha RX-V3000 receiver. Everything is connected via Monster Z cables (don't by cheap cables when spending good money on great...

One of the Best?

 

FIrst off, this DVD player is NOT for everyone. If you have an average and standard TV set, you may be better off savings a few hundreds dollars and buying a good DVD player in the $200-300 range. That being said, if you have a new TV - especially...

Feature Packed - Great Output!

Just a very minor remote control quirk.

Provides 480p component video outputs, excellent picture clarity, and a dual disk drawer. The product operates flawlessly to expectation. I find that dual disk drawer is very convenient, but the mechanism can be a little on the slow side (but not as...

Do not buy Toshiba SD5109

 

I did buy a Toshiba SD5109 and it did not play all the new DVDs I bought. But my entry level Sony($300) does. If my cheap, entry-level Sony($300) can play all DVDs, I expect a retail-priced $1000 DVD player to play all DVDs!!! What good is a very...

doesn't play all DVDs, so features are no good
