Toshiba SD5700 review: Toshiba SD5700


Toshiba SD5700

DVD-A and HDCD capable; MP3 CD playback support; very good progressive-scan video performance; aspect-ratio control.

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

The added HDCD support and marginally superior design don't give the SD5700 much of a leg up on the lower priced SD4700. But if you can find it for $250 or less, it's worth strongly considering.

It's silver only.

DVD System


I went to buy a DVD player because I have initially been watching them on my laptop. This method wasn't effective when more than just myself wanted to watch it at the same time. So I went with the Toshiba player because I have used Toshiba before and...

Great for first time users.

Takes time to put together.
