Very disappointed. temperamental machine. shuts off on its own and sometimes you can't turn it off. skips on the remote. sound on Netflix must be adjusted as it won't have any sound if set to Dolby. ( default) sketchy wireless connection. cheap feeling remote with no light response on machine at click. would not recommend. would be happier to do a Mexican hat dance on this machine rather than use it.
Great little machine for the price point
I paid $35 for this DVD player back in June, 2012 which I thought was a pretty good deal. Now I see it is under $30 so my advice is to buy it while it is hot! My old Sony player was about ten years old and every other rental DVD I received skipped around so badly I couldn't enjoy a movie. As I wasn't sure if I wanted all the bells and whistles right now (Blu Ray or wireless to stream movies, etc) I went for cheap. So I was expecting a basic machine and that is what I got.
On paper the BDX1200 may look like an unappetising prospect a Blu-ray player with no networking capabilities, no 3D support, no Wi-Fi, no cloud internet content and a generally basic spec. But if you accept that you're never going to get those features at this sort of price, then the BDX1200 starts to look like a decent little deck that still has a place despite its basic nature.
Blu-ray disc playback
Spinning regular Blu-ray discs is not the novelty act it was, and without a notable online dimension, cloud-based content or networking, Toshiba's BDX1200 is left looking like a spec'ed-up DVD player. Picture quality from Blu-ray is fine, but DVDs lacks sharpness and its back-to-basics USB slot lacks crucial file support in this uninspiring package. Put simply, there are better decks out there for the same spend.
Most affordable Blu-ray player on the block
"A thoroughly decent Blu-ray player for those on a budget," Pocket-lint summed up. "The BDX1200 is a decent choice, thanks to its terrific pictures, user-friendly operating system and digital media support via USB," agreed Trusted Reviews. If you're after the maximum picture quality and minimum spend, the Toshiba BDX1200 can't be beat.
Great Screens, One key missing feature
First off the screens are beautiful. Very high resolution and crisp image, way better than our previous DVD player. There is one feature though that is missing from this that is present on the DVD players, and that is that the DVD does not resume from where it left off when the car is turned off. This is a bit of the pain as with Blue-rays it takes quite a while to load and get through the title menus and skip the previews.
Pixelation hampers image quality
The Panasonic DVD-LS92 is a portable DVD player with a 9" WQVGA LCD display. It features Dolby Digital sound technologies and up to 11 hours of battery life, giving it the second longest battery life on the market at the time of its release next to the Panasonic DVD-LS86.
