Toshiba is a Japanese multinational, dealing with the manufacture of consumer electronic products and launch some of the best DVD players in the market today.
Budding at just $40, Toshiba DVD players go all out to bring in state of the art conveniences like MP3 players and JPEG viewing abilities, but even so, we urge you to go in for a great Blu-Ray player instead because DVD players (even the best of them) have come to the end of their days.
With world cinema switching over to full HD 720p, 1080i or 1080p, DVD players just don't have it in them to give you the best of your movie since the max resolution of a DVD player is 720x480i/p. Toshiba DVD players come with an upconversion feature that scales up this standard definition content into high definition 1080p resolution. Awesome as it sounds, the video quality of upconverted content can never compare to the actual picture quality of true HD source material, and DVD players aren't equipped to play true HD. You'd also be missing out on the thrill of watching 3D at home. If this is reason enough for you to keep with the times and enjoy your movies in HD, do visit our best Blu-Ray players selection. They're available for less than a $100! If not, read on.
Toshiba's DVD players offer to record your favorite TV shows, so you can watch them at a convenient time and are also compatible to several disc formats like DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R and DVD+RW. Toshiba even caters to the antiquated tastes of some, and have a brilliant DVD/ VHS combo player which can even convert or copy your whole videotape collection onto DVD.
For the travelling cinephile Toshiba proposes a portable DVD player fitted with around 9 inches of screen display on a folding panel. These players are qualified to play MP3s and JPEG files too, so it's an all-in-one pack with around 5 hours of playback time.
Our list of the best Toshiba DVD players has been narrowed down to only the top rated models released recently. The ranking on these however, may be low if they were released over a year ago.
