Toshiba SD3800 review


Toshiba SD3800

Great progressive-scan picture; limited aspect-ratio control; cool zoom function; picture controls; well-designed remote.

Poor MP3 implementation; artifacts in 4:3 mode.

Toshiba's SD3800 offers a wealth of performance and features for a relatively moderate price.

Toshiba SD-3800 DVD Player


I recently purchased a Toshiba SD 3800 as a retirement gift for my Dad (among other things). I've done quite alot of research already in my most recent DVD and HDTV shopping-quest -- and considering it was so recent, I walked into my local retailer...

Excellent value, essential features and great picture-quality output

Need to shop around a bit for best price

Product Specifications

Movie and music lovers, rejoice! This Toshiba SD3800 DVD player delivers everything you've been dreaming of. Digital Cinema Progressive delivers the smoothest, most film-like images to any progressive scan television, such as an HD-compatible one, and ensures maximum resolution. Parallel video output lets you connect your player via composite, S-video, and/or interlaced component video outputs and watch simultaneous images from each connected TV. The MP3 audio compatibility expands the players' functionality to include playback of custom music collections encoded via MP3 digital audio format onto CD-R or CD-RW media. NAVI graphical user interface uses graphical icons (instead of simple text) in a convenient menu display for quick access to key player functions. Superb performance and comfort - that's what marks this DVD player.
