Bottom Line:   
I had been on the fence about HDDVD/Blu-Ray,but this player had high praises I couldn't resist.I looked at all the 2nd gen HD DVD palyers but the build quality seemed flimsy.To make a long story short a year ago this player sold for around $799.

Bottom Line:   
One of the finest pieces I have ever owned. Lots of WOW factor here. Performance in all areas is stunning. The slow loading time referred to by many is not at all like I expected. It is not that slow at all. Very fast compared to the Sony Blu-Ray. Even an impatient person should have no complaints.
The picture is breath-taking, even on Standard definition. Truly, state of the art. Simple to use. I recommend this unit 100%.

Bottom Line:   
Toshiba hit a homerun with this player! The picture and sound quality of standard DVDs is incredible. I find myself reviewing my entire DVD library and discovering nuances I never saw previously. This player is without a doubt the best up-converting DVD player out there (as many professional reviewers agree).

The build quality of this player is excellent. It weighs close to 20 pounds and has a very solid, well-built feel. It has an attractive faceplate with a sleek automatic door that drops down to reveal the sturdy disc drawer. It exudes quality in all respects.

The picture and sound qualiy of HD DVDs on this player are mind-numbingly spectacular! Clarity, depth, and detail are excellent, and the SHARC processors reveal subtleties on soundtracks that are a revelation!

I highly recommened this player. It features excellent standard DVD upconversion, HD DVD quality that will blow you away, and a "built-like-a-tank" exterior. With Blu-ray's embarrassing launch, HD DVD is the clear winner out of the gate in the high definition format war. This player, and the HD DVD format, will not disappoint you.
