Toshiba XD-E600 review


If for some reason you don't want to embrace Blu-ray, the XDE600 offers good value and decent upscaled images – and we've seen it even cheaper

1080p spec ; USB input ; bright, colourful pictures

Lacks sonic detail and visual subtlety

We have seen it a fair bit cheaper, which makes it great value, but we feel obliged to point someone towards a more capable budget BD player

Toshiba XDE-600 DVD player


Last year's XDE-500, the first DVD player equipped with Toshiba's eXtended Detail Enhancement (XDE) technology, certainly took upscaled picture quality to new heights, but a replacement for high-def it was not. Of course the quality of this processing...

XDE processing, USB port, price

Non-XDE pictures

Of course the quality of this processing does highlight how mediocre the XDE-600’s non-XDE upscaled pictures are – detail is vague, colours are uninspiring and noise seems more of a problem. But then buying this player and not using XDE is like driving...

Toshiba XDE-600 review


XDE wizardry makes this budget DVD deck an essential purchase

XDE processing ; Ease of use ; Credit crunch-friendly price

Build quality

With some of the best upscaled pictures seen at this price and decent features, the XDE-600 is an unequivocal bargain

Toshiba XDE600 review


If you can't afford a Blu-ray deck but still want great pics, then this is where it's at

XDE is still the best upscaling tech around, and the price is hard to argue with

It feels cheap, and is guilty of over-processing at times

Toshiba XDE600 DVD Player


What the XDE600 offers is superior image quality, which is in part enabled by a set of three video processing techniques. These are designed to enhance the detail of the image, adjust the colour and perfect the contrast all in the fraction of a second...

Toshiba XD-E600 Upscaling DVD Player Review


AVForums investigates Toshiba's updated DVD upscaler.

Waste of time, effort and money


As far as Toshiba goes, I think I'll stick to the computers. Nothing else from them. But then again, you get what you pay for. Dropped two eggs for the irritating aspect ratio issue, and one for the factory DOA. Quality control, I fear, is a thing of...

The features are great. USB, the whole bit (even despite the limitations). Very useful

That is, when it runs right. First one was DOA - tray wouldn't operate. So I swapped it out, and the replacement ran fine. But the one annoying thing that never ceases. It'll play 2 or 3 discs, then after that, it will NEVER maintain it's aspect ratio....

Very Good Upscaling Player


The Regza link is smart. Insert a DVD and the Toshiba regza TV knows to change to the HDMI input with the DVd player. makes using the units easy.

The only stand alone player I have used with better upscaling are the Toshiba HD DVD Players. Win 7 & Media center upscaling can also be as good but for under $100_ this is the best upscaling player on the market ; This unit also handles the various...

Lighweight. Don't know how durable over time

dvd player



has very nice picture, easy hook-up, usb connection, upscale in very nice, nice sleek design

usb can only handle small storage devices, cannot handle a harddrive. I was buying to connect a 1TB harddrive full of movies, that I was using on Xbox360, but this machine can only handle about 6G. It is great for usb sticks with pictures and other...

Good for the price!


For the money is an excellent player. Even tho it has some issues and could be slow sometimes I will recommend it.

Very affordable DivX player. Up convert to 1080 is fantastic ; Plays all kinds of DVDs, no problems at all :D ; Reads very good the downloaded subtitles ; Even reads Divx movies burned directly to a DVD (as file content not dvd movie)

Kinda slow while turning it on ; When a DVD inside in the player and a USB drive is plugged in at the same time it will only play the DVD and there is no way to go back to the USB Drive ; Every 2 or 3 weeks I have to unplug the power cable to reset the...
