    Amazon.com Product Description

    Featuring a progressive-scan DVD player combined with a four-head hi-fi VCR, this Toshiba SD-V392 dual-function unit delivers the crisp resolution and enhanced sound of high-quality DVDs paired with the ability to record your favorite programs and movies on VHS tapes. The unit flexibly interacts with a number of audio and video formats, including DVD-Video, DVD-R, video CD, audio CD, and CD-R/RW, along with MP3- and WMA-encoded formats and JPEG digital photo CDs. Like other versatile DVD players, the device also offers a selectable display format, which delivers a choice between interlaced or progressive scan depending on whether users own a HDTV-capable TV. Progressive scan displays images at a higher scan rate for a sharper, richer picture, while interlaced is the standard for traditional non-HDTV televisions.

    The VCR is equipped for most common and high-end functions, featuring a program timer, 30-second commercial skip, and even the ability to watch DVDs while recording a TV show. The VCR's hi-fi stereo is bolstered by its built-in MTS decoding, which delivers a clearer audio performance. The DVD player is also compatible with a variety of enhanced audio functions, as its coaxial and audio digital outputs connect to Dolby Digital- and DTS-capable receivers for rich surround sound. The player also supports virtual surround sound, creating an audio environment that broadcasts simulated full theater sound over a two-speaker system.

    The system connects to other components through its component-video, S-video, and composite-outputs, along with the aforementioned digital audio outputs. The player includes a 54 MHz/10-bit video DAC and 192 kHz/24-bit audio DAC, and comes with a full-featured remote control.

    1-0 out of 5 stars bad Bad BAD
    I bought this machine 9 months ago (not at Target). Hooking it up with cables caused it to "blink" on some channels. I went back to the store where I bought it and a clerk there told me it was probably because it was hooked up to an older TV and the tuners were incompatible. I bought a new TV and it did the same thing. This time a clerk in the store told me I needed to hook it to the TV with RCA cables instead of a regular cable. This worked fine except it didn't work for playing the VCR so I had to connect both ways. Then the dvd player quit playing through the RCA cables so I disconnected them and went back to using just the regular cable. Now the only way I can watch TV is with the player turned off. The DVD player started giving me problems with movies from Netflix. It would freeze, not back up, sometimes not even read the dvd. When I would put in one of my own, unscratched dvd's it worked ok so I figured it was just a problem with the well used dvd's from Netflix. The other night it froze and wouldn't back up with a brand new dvd. Tomorrow I'm buying a new DVD/VCR combo and I will NEVER buy another Toshiba product.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Buy this unit!
    This is more of a love hate kinda thing. First I love the fact that it records and plays DVD's that the same time! The only other unit I have found that does that is an Apex. The picture is great both in tape and DVD. Now for the bad! The remote control, its white with black (with is OK) and orange thats right orange lettering with is hard to see when trying to use the unit at first. Also its not a smart remote, ot only works for the unit. Other than the remote it's a great unit, it has all the bells and whistles.

    1-0 out of 5 stars DVD picture freeze
    I have owned this machine 11 months. About a month ago the DVD picture would freeze. The manufacturer attributed the problem to a dirty or stratched DVD. I purchased a new DVD and the problem persisted. Seems this is a recurring problem with all brands.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly as advertised
    I was scared off of Sony and Panasonic by some of the reviews, especially stories of the DVD door problems and the poor service. The specs for this combo DVD/VCR seemed to include everything I wanted. I almost passed on this one too because the dimensions as shown were too big for my cabinet. But I checked the Toshiba web site and found that the dimensions as shown on the Amazon page were incorrect. I notified Amazon and they have corrected the dimensions. I bought it and so far am quite happy with it. The remote has far more buttons than I have ever seen, but the manual is quite thorough. The set up is simple and the DVD door opens and closes quite smoothly. Everything I tried so far works. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Stripped OS
    I'm generally happy with the hardware. The computer has many nice features for the price. But, all of the features of Windows XP Home edition were not preinstalled. Toshiba does not include the OS on CD ROM, only a recovery disc. Customer Support told me that I would need to purchase XP in order to obtain all the features of the OS, like the ability to Back-up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased.
    Screen is great.Love the WI-FI.Slower on boot-up than I

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice for the money, but Tech Support is the pits!
    I purchased this notebook for my daughter less than a month ago.She was very happy with it, and I was pleased with what we got for the money.Then the DVD drive began having problems.To make a long story short, after several calls to Toshiba it was finally determined that the drive must be replaced.The closest authorized service center is almost 40 miles away, so we must send it off to Toshiba and be without it for up to 2 weeks.I have dealt with other computer manufacturers who have sent out a technician to correct a problem covered under warranty.Why can't Toshiba do this?Or at least have a few more authorized service providers.I'm not exactly out in the sticks.There are several businesses in my area who could provide this service for Toshiba's customers.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A HORRIBLE Experience

    Sleek notebook, but that’s the only positive.My absolute worst fears all came true only three weeks after I bought it.

    Within three weeks the screen had died on me.Called the warranty service who advised me to send it to the Toshiba depot for repair, as opposed to taking it to a local service center.They assured me that the depot would have all the necessary parts, whereas a service center will have to order them and wait.They also assured me that I’ll have my notebook back in about a week.

    Three weeks later, after countless phone calls, and many promises of delivery “next week”, they finally told me that parts are still not available and that it would take two additional weeks before they get them.

    I called customer relations several times (get used to 45 minutes on hold, don’t bother leaving messages, they never return calls despite the promise of “within the hour”).Every time I was assured that this time they’ll get it right and that I’ll get my notebook within days.

    Needless to say, two weeks passed, and the assurances turned to be meaningless.Customer relations’ only job is to get you off the phone, not to solve your problem.So here I am with a brand new notebook that spent twice as much time in the repair shop than on my desk.I called customer relations again, and asked to speak to someone who will actually do something to solve my problem, perhaps send me a replacement unit.I bought the notebook because I needed it, and I just can’t defer using it indefinitely.Guess what they told me?There’s not such thing as someone who could do something.There is no replacement policy.I’ll just have to wait for the part until it arrives – whenever that is.

    A new notebook is not supposed to break right out of the box, but if it does, a respectable manufacturer should stand by their product and make up for the inconvenience to the customer. Toshiba has been utterly disappointing on all counts.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Battery + Lots of Junk.....
    Hi,

    The Batter Performance is Poor. The salesman at Circuity City will BS to get their product sold. It hardly lasts more than 80 minutes. The Laptop is loaded with JUNK. It sux!!!!

    I installed Red Hat Linux 9.0 and XP Pro with SP2.
    Their are no Network Card Drivers for Linux, so I can easily say forget about your wireless working on Linux. Shame on both Toshiba and Intel for not supporting the same.

    The system cannot hibernate nor turn itself off even after installing battry saver options that accompanied the CD.

    So I have had a horrible experience. Pretty much whatever I want I don't get.I will never ever BUY Toshiba.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love my Toshiba M45-S331!!
    After some research, I was down to Toshiba M45-S331 and Dell 6000. Finally got Toshiba although it was more expensive(especially considering Dell online deals). So far am very satisfied and love its built quality and feel as compared to others in the same price & specs range.

    PROS:
    1. Great specs for the price
    2. TruBrite screen
    3. Harman/Kardon speakers
    4. Keyboard Layout
    5. Bridge-Media Aapter

    CONS:
    1. PC2700 RAM instead of a DDR2
    2. Relatively less Battery Life. (< 3 hrs on a full-charge)

    I experienced the FREEZING/LOCK-UP problem on plugging the AC Power Cord and have seen numerous such topics online. Toshiba Support insisted its a hardware problem but was not convinced.

    Was finally able to solve this problem by tweaking the Power settings of the Laptop...

    1. Go to "Power Management Icon" from your system-icon-tray on bottom-right corner of the screen. (It gives information about Current Power Source, Remaining Battery and Power Profile)

    2. Right-click it and select "TOSHIBA POWER SAVER SETTINGS".

    3. Click "SETUP OPTIONS" button on bottom-left of the window

    4. "UNCHECK" the box marked "Change Power Source Profile Automatically".

    Once you have done this....you should hopefully no longer have the freezing or locking problem when you switch to AC Power.

    4-0 out of 5 stars new laptop
    This is the first time I purchased a laptop and cannot really compare to other laptops.However after a few minutes using this laptop, I realised that there was absolutely no noise coming from the laptop .. incredible .. very quiet!I was annoyed by the tons of software which were installed on it (most of them as trial) .. it took me a whole day to remove everything and install my software.

    Screen is wonderful and you have to get used to work on a wide screen.The touch pad is excellent. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good start (hopefully it will get better)...
    Yesterday I purchased one of these units new from Best Buy.When I got the unit home, it was DOA!It powers up, however it does not recognize any discs at all (I receive a "Non-playable Disc" message or something similar after the disc "Loads" for 3 minutes or so).I purposely purchased the Toshiba instead of spending less on an off brand (Insignia or Polaroid).According to the associate at Best Buy, Insignia is manufactured by Toshiba.Perhaps I should have saved $30 and purchased the off brand.Although, based on the units playing on display the Toshiba had the best picture.Hopefully tonight when I exchange the unit I will receive a fully functional one (I am going to make them demonstrate that the replacement functions before I leave the store!)

    1-0 out of 5 stars worst picture!
    This dvd player has the worst picture quality I have ever seen! I thought I was upgrading when I sold my panasonic 5 inch portable player to buy this pile! I looked at many 7" players and chose to go with the toshiba as the price was very good. but best buy did not have one on display at the time so I could not see the picture quality. When I got home I threw in jurassic park and was quickly shocked by the very poor picture. everything was blurry. and the thing made very loud sounds from inside, somthing my panasonic did not do as it was very quiet. so I took it back to best buy for a refund. so if you dont care about picture quality and only care about price then buy it but if your like me and expect the best then stay away from this junk.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My first and a great start
    I bought the Toshiba P1600 for an upcoming trip with my sons. What a nice surprise. Well made, easy to use, picture quality "rocks" and the dual headphone feature is a nice addition. Now to get it back from the kids so I can enjoy this little gem!! My only issue is the sound level. Buy some amplified portable speakers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Happy with Toshiba!!
    First of all, I must tell you that this is the first portable dvd player I have purchased, but I have looked around and did alot of research.I paid attention to the reviews people have made on all the models I was interested in.The reason I purchased this model was because when I researched the sdp1400 model, there were many good reviews.This sdp1600 is just the next generation of, for lack of a better word, cheaper models.I must say that this is, in no way, made cheaply....but the price would sure reflect that very thing.I bought this for $199.99, and so far well worth the money.
    The picture quality is great.I like the fact that there are dual headphone jacks, the 3d virtual sound is a nice feature...and you can turn it off if you choose to do so.I also like that I can plug my digital camera into it and see my pictures while traveling.I'm sure there are other features that I have not utilized yet....mainly because I don't feel the need for them, but some of you may want those extra features.
    None of the movies I played in it stopped or skipped, and that includes movies that ahve been 'burned'.
    One thing I do wish for is that the speakers were a bit louder.
    I hope you are as happy as I am with my purchase, should you choose to buy this model. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Taking DVD and home-video entertainment to new heights, the Toshiba RD-XS52 combines a topnotch DVD player with a DVD-R/DVD-RAM optical-media recorder and a hard-disk drive (HDD) with a stunning storage capacity of 160 GB. Whether you're watching the latest DVD movie releases in your home theater, recording your favorite TV programming, or archiving home movies and other videos to long-lasting DVD, the RD-XS52 is your ticket to world-class entertainment. And did we mention that the unit spins your homemade CDs filled with JPEG image files or MP3 and WMA music tracks?

    The RD-XS52's HDD lets you store around 135 hours of audio/video programming, ample room for time-shifting your viewing and keeping a fair amount of "must-watch-soon" content at the ready. Imagine the contents of a fleet of 30 VHS tapes, all recorded in 6-hour/EP mode, available at once and with easy navigation, no fast-forwarding or rewinding, and in much higher resolution.

    When you have programs you decide you want to keep, just offload them to DVD. Archiving is lickety-split: 24x normal speed when transferring from the HDD to a write-once DVD-R and 12x when burning to DVD-RAM. Time Slip recording/playback lets you begin watching a recording that's already in progress or pause a live recording and return to it later.

    The EASY NAVI menu's user-friendly preview screen instantly gives you access to the recorder's key features and can be used to preview and access your content.
    The RD-XS52 is also one of the first DVD recorders to offer an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) with upconversion capability from standard 480i resolution to high-definition 720p or 1080i--perfect for viewing your DVDs, camcorder footage, and television programs on a high-definition-equipped TV, now or in the future. HDMI provides a single-cable digital connection for the highest-quality interface between the DVD player and a compatible television, maintaining the digital audio and video signals until they reach the monitor. Other picture enhancements include 3D digital noise reduction (DNR), mosquito DNR, and block DNR.

    Front-panel inputs accommodate VCRs and camcorders, including digital camcorders through an IEEE 1394/DV input. The digital-video input even includes controls for your camcorder to simplify the process of selecting and transferring the scenes you want. Other inputs include 3 each of composite- and S-video (1 each on the front panel) and an RF/antenna input on the rear panel.

    For DVD recordings, you can create virtual titles on the hard drive--including menus and chapters with thumbnail images--then burn your programming to DVDs with high-quality MPEG-2 encoding (the DVD-Video standard). A convenient library function maintains an inventory of all your recorded content by disc or title so you can sort by date, time, or genre.

    The RD-XS52offers broad flexibility, with both a hard drive that holds up to 135 hours of programming and the ability to record to DVD-RAM and DVD-R.
    The RD-XS52 offers the flexibility of recording on DVD-RAM--perfect for instant chapter access and for multiple rerecordings--as well as on DVD-R, one of the most widely compatible DVD formats (great for sharing camcorder footage with loved ones). DVD-RAM offers double-sided recording (9.4 GB total storage), and the format is rewriteable, too.

    Advanced timer programming lets you use the unit like you would a VCR, specifying a time and channel for recording, and built-in Gemstar VCR+ C3 greatly simplifies this. Significantly, this model gives you the option of recording audio in higher resolution than the MP3-like Dolby Digital 2.0. Choose from 3 separate formats, depending upon your desired quality and available disc space: Dolby Digital 1 (192 kbps), Dolby Digital 2 (384 kbps), and linear PCM (1,546 kbps).

    For playback, ColorStream Pro progressive-scan component-video outputs (switchable between 480p and standard 480i) provide great color detail and high purity when connected to compatible televisions. The unit also has standard composite- and S-video outputs, with an RF coaxial output for passing tuner signals to an external device such as a VCR (the RF output does not pass a DVD or HDD signal). Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio output (Toslink optical) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

    TheRD-XS52 records to two DVD types:

    DVD-RAM
    The most flexible of the recordable DVD formats when it comes to recording, editing, and playback. Even more, you can rerecord content approximately 100,000 times.
    DVD-R
    A write-once format perfect for sharing treasured video moments with virtually anyone who has a DVD-Video player.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Returned with several complaints, I DON'T recommend this one
    I think I found more problems with my 5970 than there are letters in the word LEMON. Others here like theirs, but my experience over 3 weeks of daily use left me disgusted and angry. I owned a Toshiba multi-disc DVD changer for years, and adored it. Hoped this would be the same. But noooo.... 1. Firstly, it began halting, skipping and otherwise having trouble with rented DVDs. Then, it happened with 1-2 new DVDs I'd bought AND NEVER PLAYED BEFORE. IOW, pristine discs, no smudges or scratches of any kind. Finally, it halted and skipped on two CDs (not CD-Rs) in a row. That was a clear sign that it had problems. 2. The response to the remote was haphazard; it took several button presses to get action. Same problem using my old Toshiba remote, and a Yahama receiver universal remote, pointed right at the IR receive port from 5' away. It almost always took 2-3 presses of a button before the 5970 responded. I noticed the same problem with the front panel buttons, telling it to open up and let me change discs took repeated button presses, and some patience (!), before the tray would finally eject. I then read a review here on Amazon of the Toshiba SD-6915 (multi-disc) remarking on EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM. VERY annoying when you want to pause, or backtrack, or just find a spot. 3. Output to my HDTV via HDMI was problematic. (And the previous review is incorrect, you CAN find third party HDMI cables for < $150, just look harder. Try Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and stop going to Best Buy. Search for Acoustic Research, Philips and RCA HDMI cables. Cheapest I saw was $39.) 480p images had a clear and unmistakable green tint to darker, background areas. Not so with the 480p component video output. The 1080i images on my TV were pillow-cased something awful, and shifted to the side about 5% of the screen, but this COULD be my TV's fault. The Toshiba defaulted to 1080i on power on, regardless of the last mode used. I COULD NOT use the "upconversion" feature through component video out. :(3. Unlike my previous Toshiba, and other DVD players, it would consistently "forget" the last play position when powering off. Even without any disc exchange. Sounds trivial, but try enjoying 1/2 a movie (or CD), then doing something else, and coming back to continue. Have to find your spot manually; irksome to say the least. 4. Audio out (TOS fiber optic digital) to my Yamaha receiver was always 2 channel, unless a DTS soundtrack was selected. The receiver decoded fine Dolby Pro Logic and Dolby Digital just fine, but wasn't getting "5.1" channels from this player via digital. My replacement DVD player, a Yamaha, clearly sends 5.1 channels for Dolby Digital; in fact, for Dolby D 1-channel, 2-channel, 5.1-channel tracks, the receiver gets exactly that from the DVD player. Your mileage may vary for other players, my old PlayStation2 sends Dolby 2.0, Dolby 5.1, and DTS 5.1 from Peter Gabriel's PLAY DVD as 2-channel digital out. After seeing what a better DVD player does, I would not accept a DVD player that sends Dolby Digital 5.1 audio to the receiver as 2-channel. (To the nitpickers, YES, I had the player set for PCM out. The other option was not compatible with digital audio out. My Yamaha has a "LT/RT" output mode for digital-only output,... maybe that's a factor?)5. I can't remember #5. But there was a fifth reason I sent it back. As if the previous 4 weren't enough! My suggestion? Try a Toshiba locally, then return it and buy it here. I'm still smarting at the $20 shipping expense of returning a bum unit.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great Picture, Poor Functionality
    We purchased this DVD player four months ago and have had countless issues with the functionality.During movie playback (if it will even load the DVD in the first place), the DVD will lock up for no reason.It basically freezes like your computer does.You have to turn the DVD player off and you're lucky if you can get it to even read the DVD after that.The issues we've been having with DVDs aren't even on older DVDs that we've had for a while--in fact, we just loaded a brand new, never been played, just taken out of the plastic wrapping DVD and the DVD player won't even read it.We loaded it into our older DVD player and it played without any issues.Furthermore, you have to hold the remote about three inches away from the DVD player for it to work half of the time.The picture quality from the HD up-convert is fantastic, but it's really not worth the hassle considering you won't be able to enjoy it on half the DVDs you own.It's just not worth the money considering the other viable options currently on the market.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value
    I was looking for a new DVD player for my new Samsung 46' LCD DLP. I came up to this DVD in BestBuy when I was planning to get the Samsung HDI DVD Player. It took me less than 5 minutes to figure out the connection (through the included HDMI cable) and played a DVD. I am impressed by the picture and sound quality. So, I decided to keep it. So far I've never come across any problems that other buyers are experiencing with the DVD. But then, I'm a casual movie watcher and only use my DVD player to watch rented new movies from Blockbuster. If you a casual movie watcher, I truly recommend this player. For $149, it has delivered a lot of value to me and my family.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Player for the Money
    I have been using this plyer for two months with a Toshiba HDTV utilizing the HDMI interface and have had great results.The picture is fantastic.I have not experienced any of the "freeze up" or "blue screen" problems described in other reviews.

    I do agree that the remote is poorly designed.I generally use my receiver or tv remote to control the player.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good player, however...................
    I just recentyly purchased this Dvd player from Toshiba, and I am quite pleased with it. However there are 1 or 2 little problems(annoyances) that have to be addressed. First off this is a beautiful looking machine. Sleek and very stylish. It's very thin and does not take up alot of space. It is also very lightweight. Second, it is very easy to set up. Most dvd players with upconversion do not supply you with the HDMI cable, but this machine includes it at no extra charge. Very nice. It takes about 3-5 minutes to connect to your television set. You must use a HD tv or Hd ready tv with HDMI inputs to get the best results. You can also use regular componnent cables or RCA analog cables too. But since this is a advanced player with video upconversion it really doesnt make any sense not to take advantage of this more powerful player. It is also very easy to set up on the tv. There is a switch on the front of the player to switch to the HDMI mode. Then make sure your tv set is set to 1080i resolution, and also make sure the player is set that way as well. Use the HDMI button on your remote to do this. And then make sure your tv input is set to either HDMI1 or HDMI2. Most hd tv sets have two of those inputs available. Then your done. You will be blown away by the incredible detail and color of your dvd's, and you will notice a substantial difference over progressive scan, which is now the standard for most Dvd players.
    Since the signal remains pure digital, instead of going from digital to analog to digital again, there is no loss in video or audio data, and the picture is uncompressed. So the signal from the player directly to the television remains pure digital. Now for the one or two little annoyances I mentioned earlier. The main problem that I noticed was the players minor unresponsiveness. It seems that sometimes you must press the play button or the open tray button two or three times to get the player to respond. Why? With my Pioneer standard Dvd player you just touch the buttons once for the actions to take place. Maybe I am being a little picky, and the player may just be a little sensitive to the touch. And one time the Dvd did not load properly and the player froze. I just turned the power off, waited a few seconds, put the disc back in, and it worked fine from that point. But for the most part, this is a very good player once you set up everything correctly. I also wish that this player played all formats of cd as well. But it will not play Dvd audio, or SACD surround sound discs. So in closing this is a very good player at a decent price, and if you want to see your dvds in the absolute best quality, then this player with fit the bill nicely. ... Read more


    8. Toshiba 52HM84 52" HDTV-Ready Projection DLP TV

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Toshiba takes DLP technology into the future with the 52-inch TheaterWide 52HM84 HD-ready rear-projection TV. The 16:9 52HM84 uses a proprietary system called TALEN (Toshiba Advanced Light Engine); based on Texas Instruments' HD2+ DLP chip, it enhances brightness and contrast while keeping the 1,280 x 720-pixel progressive resolution (720p). Toshiba's TheaterWide TVs challenge direct-view CRT models when it comes to reproducing deep blacks and details in dark or shadowy scenes.

    What is DLP?
    The DLP processor DLP, or Digital Light Processing, is a technology that bounces a colored light beam across an array of hundreds of thousands of hinge-mounted microscopic mirrors attached to a single chip, called a "micro mirror device" (below, pictured with the head of a pin).
    DLP mirrors dwarfed by the head of a pin
    Each of the mirrors can be pointed toward or away from the light source thousands of times per second, providing not only minute color detail but also sharper resolution than even LCD displays.
    Detail of resolution comparison between LCD and DLP
    This set is HDTV-ready (it needs an optional hi-def receiver to get HD signals), but can improve standard-definition video thanks to Toshiba's multi-step PixelPure video processing system, which optimizes the three main picture quality factors: resolution, contrast, and color. All incoming signals are upconverted by the built-in "scaler" to match the DLP chip's native 720p resolution.

    PixelPure encompasses 8 different processing circuits. Among its components are: 6.2 million-pixel oversampling (for higher perceived resolution), real-speed progressive scanning (which uses additional sampling points to create smoother diagonal lines), a Magic Square algorithm (for smooth, natural color gradation), Dynamic Contrast Enhancer (for higher perceived contrast and increased color saturation), and Color Detail Enhancer (to maintain fine image detail in color-saturated areas).

    DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology uses an optical semiconductor, known as the Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD chip, to digitally manipulate light. The chip contains a rectangular array of up to 1.3 million microscopic mirrors, each of which measures less than one-fifth the width of a human hair. A DMD panel's micromirrors are mounted on tiny hinges that enable them to tilt either toward the light source (on) or away from it (off)--creating a light or dark pixel on the projection surface. The bit-streamed image code entering the semiconductor directs each mirror to switch on and off up to several thousand times per second, such that the mirrors can reflect pixels in up to 1,024 shades of gray.

    The HD2+ DLP chip ensures an ultra-clean image by filling in the dimples, or vias, in the mirrors to avoid stray light. It increases both brightness and contrast, resulting in an impressive color-corrected contrast ratio (2,200:1) at 1,100 ANSI Lumens. The set's TheaterFine HD Super Fine Pitch screen reduces the physical space between the lines on the lenticular screen, resulting in a finer, sharper, more detailed picture.

    Toshiba's DFine Hi-Speed VSM (velocity scan modulation) improves contrast and overall picture sharpness, while the CableClear DNR+ digital noise reduction optimizes poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, further eliminating video noise ("snow") for a clean, crisp image. Cinema Mode circuitry (3:2 pulldown switch) identifies original film-based content from DVDs, then reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.

    A 3D Y/C (4 MB, 10-bit) digital comb filter with Vertical Contour Correction helps eliminate dot crawl and color bleed and significantly reduces detail noise, seen as shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes. Color temperature controls allow you to adjust white balance. The "Warm" setting reduces the color temperature to an NTSC standard 6,500 degrees Kelvin and delivers a redder image that is ideal for display in a dimly lit room. "Medium" and "Cool" provide a progressively bluer image for the best picture as room light levels are increased.

    The 52HM84 has plenty of inputs for connecting all your audio and video components. In back you'll find two RF, two composite video, two S-Video, and two HD ColorStream component video, as well as an HDMI digital input. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface that supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus 8-channel digital audio--all on a single cable. A set of front composite and S-video inputs make hooking up a game console or camcorder a snap.

    Other features include HD Window dual-tuner POP (picture-on-picture) with PIP sound for listening to two programs simultaneously, the new Radiance DC lamp with high brightness and lower power modes for extended life, individual audio/video settings by input type, sleep and wake timers, Real Speed progressive scanning to create smoother diagonal lines, Color Transient Improver for sharp transitions on color changes without bleeding, and Color Detail Enhancer to maintain fine image detail in color saturated areas.

    Aside from the 20-watts-per-channel stereo speaker system, the 52HM84 uses MTS for programming with stereo sound, SAP for receiving a second audio track in another language. Meanwhile, SRS WOW combines 3D Sound (simulated surround sound from any stereo audio) with TruBass (yet another low-frequency enhancement) and Focus (which clarifies voices). The StableSound volume leveler eliminates drastic volume spikes while changing channels or when channels go to a commercial break.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent hybrid!!!!
    I am a first time tablet buyer and thus read everything written on tablets before buying one. I am quite please with my choice.
    I have owned an ECS desknote, Compaq Presario, IBM notebooks and Gateway desktop earlier. Right now, I am using the R15 along with my gateway desktop.
    Several people wrote that it is probably better to go with a slate rather than a hybrid but I wasn't sure how much will I use my tablet functionality. It appears that I will use the R15 mostly as a tablet and sometimes as a notebook. So, my next purchase will be a slate.

    I have such a poor handwriting that I cannot read it myself on some occasions. Thus I am surprised that R15 could read my handwriting so well. I didnt check the speech recognition function, but last time I looked at it, the technology hadn't advanced much.

    Overall, R15 is a sturdy machine with good wireless card (I didn't have to set up the wireless). Battery life is good (and can stretch even more than 4 hours on some settings). The pen is very easy to use and pleasant experience. The drive makes a lot of sound but there is a silencer that can make the noise disappear (I am not sure whether it changes the perfomrance). I was quite worried about the cooling of the machine - I checked an averatec which was too hot to handle. R15 manages the heat disspiation quite well, thought it reamins warm (not hot like so many other machines).

    I decided not to go with Averatec as I read too many bad reviews and my last experinece with an unknown brand was extremely bad. So, i decided to spend 350 bucks extra on a known brand.

    I found the performance of the machine to be at least as good as my 2.2Ghz desktop. I simultaneuously ran word, outlook, excel and onenote and performnnce was still good.

    Amazon gave a great deal (and when i bought it was the cheapest R15 around). They also shipped in just 3 days (although they said it woudl take 5-9 days). Buying at Amazon was a pleasure - as always.

    The only thing I dont like about R15 is the weight. Although, as a laptop the weigth is not problem, when it is used as a slate holding it in one arm for long is difficult. But this is a trade-off I made to have a larger screen, built in optical drive, and laptop functionality. I am not disappointed with the trade-off.

    Overall, I would recommend this machine to someone who doesn't know how much he/she would use it as a tablet and for first time tablet buyers. I would also recommend potential laptop buyers to take a good look at this hybrid as it has amazing features (as a tablet) that would change the way you work with your computer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Overall it's a good machine for the price
    I wrote a review of the R15 that would take too much space here.You can view at VBInk dot com.

    In general, I agree with the previous reviews. I would recommend it for people new to tablets.My next one may be a slate though.I didn't think I was too mobile beofre getting the R15.A new world has opened up to me.In a couple years I'll be ready for a slate.Someone told me "If you buy a convertable, try to use it only in Tablet mode to really learn and benefit from the tablet features. Otherwise, you'll end up using the Tablet as a notebook and the purchase would have been pointless."

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent tablet pc - versitile - but A Monster
    I agree with the previous review.I've had this machine for over about a week now and I love it...but it's a monster.Heavy and big.When converted into tablet form it is much more manageable (at least it's not so bulky then).I bought a verizon broadband card and I've been in heaven.Never have to worry about an internet connection now...I use the tablet form when in meetings and when I have to walk around.The machine itself is great.Comes with OneNote installed...great features...big screen (although that can be a pain because it makes the machine bigger; I like the big screen though)...and a very good price for what you get. If you're willing to spend over 2.5K you can get the Fujitu T4000 which is smaller and lighter and looks like a great machine....but you pay over 1K more (which I was not willing to do).The R15 is a very functional machine; it does what I need it for and although it's a bit heavy and bulky it is an excellent value.Hopefully it will stand the test of time and not fall apart on me after I write this review :)

    4-0 out of 5 stars BEST FOR THE PRICE
    I wanted to buy a tablet pc for a long time but the only thing that was keeping me away from it was that the price was too high for something with very low computing power and in most cases no optical drive. For the ones with a good configuration and an optical drive the price was too high. I loved the functionality of the tablet pc so was not able to decided whether to buy a notebook or a tablet, but then this came along and I have to say it is the best for the price, I have given it 4 stars only because it is on the heavier side for a tablet pc, but then I guess you can't have everything for this price. If you want something light and can do without a CD/DVD drive and a smaller screen then you should consider the TOSHIBA M200 or the FUJITSU T4000. Except the weight this is a great machine. ...

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Toshiba's RS-TX20 Digital Media Server is two high-tech components in one: a full-featured DVD recorder/player and a TiVo Series2 digital video recorder with free TiVo Basic service included with purchase. The unit's high-capacity, 120 GB hard-disk drive (HDD) stores up to 140 hours of audio/video storage (depending on the quality level you select), while DVD recording gives you the option for archiving your VHS and camcorder footage and for easy recording of your favorite TV programs. A convenient, front-panel DV input (IEEE 1394) is perfect for quick transfers of camcorder material onto the hard-disk drive and then to DVD.

    The unit also comes with a 45-day free trial of the TiVo Plus service so you can try features unique to the TiVo Plus service, including the ability to search for programs by title, set up Season Pass recordings for your favorite shows, and create actor, director, and keyword WishLists searches.

    With TiVo Basic Service included and without paying a subscription fee, you can record your favorite TV shows onto the HDD and watch them on your schedule. You can also record content from the hard disk drive to a DVD media (DVD-R, DVD-RW, or DVD-RAM) quickly and easily. The easy-to-use TiVo interface can automatically create a DVD menu for easy navigation. DVDs can be named according to your program selections, or you may manually enter a title.

    This is a great DVD player, too. Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the RS-TX20 will deliver the full potential of your commercial DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, gives you higher resolution and sharper images than standard 480i signals while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive feature (3:2 pulldown detection and reversal) digitally corrects frame distortion in film-based material to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The recorder/player offers 1 set of ColorStream Pro component-video outputs (selectable for 480p/480i), 2 composite-video-based AV inputs, 1 S-video input, and 1 RF coaxial input (for an antenna signal or a feed from an older VCR or cable box). A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions, while both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's Toslink optical digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

    The DVD drive is fully compatible with your MP3 and WMA music CDs and will even play discs full of your favorite JPEG digital photos for ready-made slide shows right in your living room.

    A supplied IR blaster cable for cable-box and satellite receiver control (C3 Control) connects to the back of the recorder and transmits an infrared (IR) signal to change channels on your cable or satellite box, as needed, for advance recording--freeing you from having to pretune the correct channel ahead of time.

    The included, no-fee TiVo Basic service features a 3-day rolling program guide, TV "Trick Play" features (such as the ability to pause and rewind live TV), instant replay/instant skip, and manual recording capability with repeat function. The unit is fully upgradeable to the TiVo Plus Service (subscription required: $12.95 per month or a "product lifetime" fee of $299 that's good for as long as your RS-TX20 remains operational), which includes TiVo's Home Media Option for remote (online) scheduling, access to MP3/JPEG digital media files from your PC, and multi-room viewing with no additional TiVo receivers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great television for the price
    After a spilled water incident killed my five year old television, I finally decided to upgrade. Plasmas and LCD's are still too expensive, so I went with this one.

    I think it is an absolutely great television.With the BBE and surround sound on, the sound from the tv speakers is clear and powerful.I used to have to really pump up the volume on my old tv, but now at low levels it is still doing very nicely.

    The smart sound feature is also very powerful.On my old tv, watching DVD's meant putting the volume up almost to maximum.Now, the volume stays consistent despite the input.

    The image is very clear and sharp.I had to lower the contrast levels significantly, and a couple of others from their defaults to get rid of a slight glow and washed out feeling with the default settings.However, with those minor adjustments, it looks really fantastic.

    Only negative is that Amazon ships through Eagle shipping for these large packages, and they are a very rinky-dink operation, at least near Portland, OR.Many delays, some caused by them just forgetting to put the tv on the truck (they even told me that directly - sorry, just forgot!).If I bought a large item like this again, I would be very tempted to just drive to Best Buy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great TV
    I bought this TV after lots of online searching.It received great reviews, and the price was good so I went for it.I'm glad I did!I've had it for about 7 months now and I have become the envy of everyone in the house!We have two 36" TVs in the house, yet my little 27" is the favorite.The widescreen is great and the color sharpness is perfect.The stereo sound is also very good.It's easy to install and hook up other stereo/video components.The only question remaining is how long it will last, but I'm optimistic.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good, Mid-priced television
    After extensive research and time spent in various stores looking at screens, I ended up buying the Toshiba 27AF45.I have been quite happy with the sound and picture quality, specifically with the BBE sound enhancer and surround-sound features, and with the lack of setup needed to achieve a good picture.Front A/V inputs, input lockout and a component input round out a nice price/feature package.

    One negative is that there is no color temperature control, so you are only able to adjust hue and color, brightness and contrast, but with contrast up, brightness down a little, and color backed off a few notches, it rivals the picture on any professional, non-HD, higher-priced monitor in the TV studios where I work.Bravo!

    I haven't had it long-enough to know how it will hold up over the long-term, but unless I'm mistaken, it seems pretty solid.Now if I can just get all the remotes to play well together! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    A digital entertainment device for both movie buffs and technophiles, Toshiba's RS-TX60 digital media server features DVD recording abilities alongside TiVo Series2 technology with free TiVo Basic service included with purchase. The unit's high-capacity, 160 GB hard-disk drive (HDD) stores up to 200 hours of audio/video storage (depending on the quality level you select), while DVD recording gives you the option for archiving your VHS and camcorder footage and for easy recording of your favorite TV programs. A convenient, front-panel DV input (IEEE 1394) is perfect for quick transfers of camcorder material onto the hard-disk drive and then to DVD.

    The unit also comes with a 45-day free trial of the TiVo Plus service so you can try features unique to the TiVo Plus service, including the ability to search for programs by title, set up Season Pass recordings for your favorite shows, and create actor, director, and keyword WishLists searches.

    With TiVo Basic Service included and without paying a subscription fee, you can record your favorite TV shows onto the HDD and watch them on your schedule. You can also record content from the hard disk drive to a DVD media (DVD-R, DVD-RW, or DVD-RAM) quickly and easily. The easy-to-use TiVo interface can automatically create a DVD menu for easy navigation. DVDs can be named according to your program selections, or you may manually enter a title.

    This is a great DVD player, too. Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the RS-TX60 will deliver the full potential of your commercial DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, gives you higher resolution and sharper images than standard 480i signals while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts. Toshiba's Digital Cinema Progressive feature (3:2 pulldown detection and reversal) digitally corrects frame distortion in film-based material to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

    The recorder/player's ColorStream Pro component-video output (selectable for 480p/480i) works for both DVD and TiVo content. There are 2 composite-video-based AV inputs, 1 S-video input, and 1 RF coaxial input (for an antenna signal or a feed from an older VCR or cable box). A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions, while both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's Toslink optical digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

    The DVD drive is fully compatible with your MP3 and WMA music CDs and will even play discs full of your favorite JPEG digital photos for ready-made slide shows right in your living room.

    A supplied IR blaster cable for cable-box and satellite receiver control (C3 Control) connects to the back of the recorder and transmits an infrared (IR) signal to change channels on your cable or satellite box, as needed, for advance recording--freeing you from having to pretune the correct channel ahead of time.

    The included, no-fee TiVo Basic service features a 3-day rolling program guide, TV "Trick Play" features (such as the ability to pause and rewind live TV), instant replay/instant skip, and manual recording capability with repeat function. The unit is fully upgradeable to the TiVo Plus Service (subscription required: $12.95 per month or a "product lifetime" fee of $299 that's good for as long as your RS-TX60 remains operational), which includes TiVo's Home Media Option for remote (online) scheduling, access to MP3/JPEG digital media files from your PC, and multi-room viewing with no additional TiVo receivers.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The high-end SD-3960 DVD player from Toshiba delivers a stunningly clear picture and fantastic surround sound, making it a perfect addition to your home theater. Utilizing Toshiba's ColorStream Pro progressive-scan video technology, the SD-3960 yields vivid colors, clean resolution, and reduced onscreen distortion. A 10-bit/54-MHz digital-to-analog video signal converter also assists in reproducing your DVDs in theaterlike clarity. While the SD-3960 is compatible with both analog and digital televisions, you will achieve optimum picture quality by using the player with a high-definition-compatible television.

    You can take full advantage of the visual clarity of the SD-3960 with its versatile digital picture zoom option. The zoom feature lets you magnify a portion of the picture onscreen while in freeze-frame mode or even while watching a DVD in real time. The feature is great for spotting details in movies or even adjusting letterboxed movies to fill your screen.

    The SD-3960 plays DVDs, DVD-Rs, and CDs, so you can enjoy all your favorite videos and music. You can also play MP3s and view digital JPEG photos from CDs created in your computer with the SD-3960.

    The SD-3960 gives you more than a great picture. You also get vivid, realistic sound, thanks to Toshiba's 24-bit/192 kHz pulse code modulation (PCM) audio processor. PCM audio translates digital signals from your DVDs and CDs into warmer, natural sound. For a cinematic surround-sound experience, you can easily connect the SD-3960 to a home theater receiver with an RCA-type connection. The SD-3960 features Dolby Digital and DTS surround-sound output.

    The SD-3960 gives a sonic boost to any home theater, even a setup with just stereo speakers. The SD-3960's virtual surround-sound capability creates a simulated surround experience from any DVD or CD recorded in stereo.

    1-0 out of 5 stars BROKEN WITH NO PLACE TO GO
    I bought this DVD player after my last one broke. I had my last one for 4 years and this one for less than 7 months. The player got very hot and it froze up. This was a consistant problem. I am shocked. I own several Toshiba products and this is the first to crap out like this. I am left with a very shotty warranty and no DVD player. Very sad.

    5-0 out of 5 stars TOSHIBA SD-3960 = #1
    Just like consumerreports.org reported, this is THE BEST DVD player that produces the best quality picture. I'm glad I listened to CR and not the other reviews on here. I will be buying all Toshiba products from now on.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not ALL bad!
    Reading the other reviews I decided to write in toshibas defense! The DVD SD-3960 is not all that bad...I mean come on its only 69.99, what do you expect it to do? Make you coffee in the morning? It just does what it says, Progressive Scan!!! I have not expirenced any problems with the player getting hot, or a flickering saturated picture. I switched from the Samsung N-501 Nuon player. And I noticed a huge difference. The Picture is brighter the sound has better range and the progerssive scan worked like i expected it to. The remote however is a POS BUT if your like me you have 50 remotes and one master universal remote to control everything, so no big deal. I hope this helps.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Blurry, washed-out picture.
    There's really not much else to say -- I bought this to replace a non-progressive DVD player, and at first I thought I was seeing things... the colors were washed out and unsaturated, and there was a grainy texture to everything. I tried several DVD's, and they're all the same. I also tried going from component video to S-video, but that didn't fix the problem. Maybe it's just the one I got, but I'm just going to get something else.

    1-0 out of 5 stars It's Junk
    I purchased the Toshiba SD3960 after returning a previously purchased Toshiba Sd3950. I bought the SD3960 because the SD3950 audio was distorted while playing Mp3's and it was very hard to hear some dialogue from DVD's. The SD3950 tray also locked up occasionally. I bought and returned 3 different SD3950 players!!!
    The SD3960 has much better audio, but consistantly gets very hot (2 players bought and returned). The smell shows up shortly after turning on the player. The heat and smell doesn't dissipate, even after three weeks of use.
    Both of these players could be a near perfect player with all the options and ease of use. The SD3950 has a GREAT remote which was changed for the worse on the SD3960. The LCD display was also changed from a full function display on the SD3950 to a 4 digit antiquated setup on the SD3960. I will be returning my latest Toshiba SD3960 NEVER to buy another TOSHIBA DVD player again. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Toshiba P35-6011 automatic Shutdown
    I agree with William McMullin's review. Within the FIRST WEEK this computer began shutting down for NO reason. The battery and plug were fine. It was not the heat. The laptop was off ALL day and we turned it on and it immediately turned off. Interestingly it would only work when we switched the plug from one outlet to another.It would not work if it was not plugged in. As if switching the outlet was a reset. Not sure why this should matter. I am not sure if it is an adapter thing.

    Very frustrating. If the problem is resolved I will pull write another review and let buyers on amazon know.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Power Problem
    I bought 2 Toshiba laptops the last couple of months.The P35-S611 will just shut down periodically for no reason when plugged in to an A/C outlet with battery intact.It will reboot for a few seconds and then shut down again.

    The other Toshiba, the Tecra A4, freezes up everytime you switch it from battery to power cord.Toshiba gave me a refund on this one.I'm still fighting for a refund on the P35.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dont be fooled again from amazon geeks
    I love this laptop!! I listened to other reviews regarding a Averatech tablet. I am stuck with that piece of junk!!I was dumb enough to read posts regarding how awesome that trash Averatech was..I use my laptop for work every day and night. I LOVE THIS TOSHIBA P35S611 LAPTOP! Yes its heavy but when you start using it the weight will overcome all of the other factors.If you have ever felt like you can trust someones post please take my advice ....Dont listen to the geek idiots who have nothing better to do than place posts regarding the items that mom and dad bought them. I am surprising myself that I am writing this now to tell other hard working over 40 people that really need a great laptop to buy this one. Try one at a local store you will see what I am talking about.... I use the blue tooth card along with my Treo 650 and my hp 450 cbi potable printer 10-15 hours a day..Good luck, dont get burned from any other child game playing idiots out there :)

    1-0 out of 5 stars What's next?
    With in the first 3 weeks of owning my Toshiba, the performance was reduced to waiting 15 to 20 seconds for any program to open. With a gig of ram, it should have been zipping along. Durring the next week, the backlight on the LCD went out and had to be used via a external monitor. I was informed that it should take 5 to 10 business days for turn around. As it turned out, I was waiting 35 days for it to be returned. Upon recieving the computer from repair, the sound did not work. After installing the sound drivers with the help of the tech support, it was determined that it had to be shipped back for another repair. I was informed that Toshiba DOES NOT have a replacement or refund policy. I bought what I thought was a reliable computer. Not something that had to be sent back for repaires constantly.
    I love the looks and layout of this unit but the performance leaves a lot to be desired.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Another falling satellite from Toshiba
    Anyone considering a purchase of a Toshiba Satellite series computer such as this one should run a search on the terms Toshiba satellite overheating. My experience has been that Toshiba does not stand by its products, cannot repair the chronic problems with this series and will not extend warranties to help out customers unaware of these issues. Customer service is out of the Nixon White House. The satellite series computers work well when they work. But Toshiba should be in the lemon-aide biz, not the computer biz. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Can't use just any DVD in this recorder.
    I just purchased the Toshiba D-R4, it is my first foray into DVD recording.I like the Toshiba brand and I liked the price, I purchased Sony DVD-RW media with it so I could start recording, this is going to replace my VCR.Well first you have to format the RW media in the recorder, reminded of 1984 when we had to format 1.44 diskettes.Well once I got the box opened and read the manual they, Toshiba, recommend you use JVC DVD-RW 2X version 1.2.Well I had my Sony DVDs so I started formating, it was a no go three DVDs later every one of them failed could not format.The next day I called support and they recommended I try JVC or Memorex brand.So I had to run around to 4 stores before I found Memorex DVD-RW, I never saw JVC brand.The Memorex worked fine and I am recording now but why oh why don't they have a label on the box or include one of the DVD brands that work with the machine in the box, the store I bought the recorder at only carried Sony brand DVD-RW.So be aware if you want to use the machine after you buy it get JVC or Memorex brand DVD-RW discs, of course you can use DVD-R or DVD-RAM I have not tryed those yet.Also watch the + and - signs, the Toshiba only uses DVD- not DVD+.It seems to work fine, it is more complicated than a VCR, way more options.Hope this helps. ...

The player spins DVD-Video movies, of course, but also handles recordable CDs loaded with MP3 or WMA music files and discs filled with JPEG digital photos. But it also plays stereo and multichannel music-based DVD-Audio and SACD (Super Audio CD) media, letting you enjoy high-resolution music in stereo or, depending on the disc, albums specially mixed for surround-sound listening.

    The SD-4960 excels in video performance, too. It's outfitted with 10-bit/54 MHz video DACs (digital-to-analog converters) and ultimate-quality Super ColorStream Pro progressive-scan component-video outputs for seamless, flicker-free images when viewed through high-definition and HD-ready TVs. Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the SD-4960 will deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    The SD-4960 also performs 3:2 pulldown reversal. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion. Conventional composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

    Digital picture zoom is an interactive DVD feature that lets you select and magnify an area of a picture you want to zoom in on. Enhanced digital processing during moving video or freeze-frame playback produces high color fidelity and resolution, even when you're zoomed in. You can also use this feature to expand letterbox-only films to full-screen (4:3 aspect ratio) dimension.

    DVD-Audio and SACD media both offer super-high-fidelity sound. DVD-Audio discs provide 192 kHz/24-bit multichannel and stereo sound, high storage capacity, and unique bonus materials not available on regular audio CDs. DVD-A discs often have compressed Dolby Digital soundtracks for listening on standard DVD players, but true DVD-A decoding is required for full sonic appreciation. Depending on the disc, Sony's proprietary SACD format provides extended-bandwidth multichannel and/or stereo sound, often presented in a dual-layer format compatible with both standard CD players (at standard resolution) and SACD-equipped players like the SD-4960 (for full-resolution playback).

    The player performs bass management, giving you control of independent channel parameters (speaker size, delay time, etc.), including control for bass reproduction. Use this feature to customize the player's multi-channel audio output to your particular home theater.

    As an anti-piracy measure, the player performs its own decoding of both DVD-Audio and SACD signals, passing high-resolution analog, not digital, audio to your integrated amplifier or surround receiver. This means you'll need an audio/video receiver with multichannel analog-audio inputs to fully appreciate multichannel DVD-A and SACD releases.

    A set of stereo and a set of multichannel analog-audio outs route audio from DVD-A/SACD media as well as from Dolby Digital- and DTS-encoded DVDs to your AV receiver. If you're not planning to use the DVD-A/SACD capability for multichannel programming, both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for a simpler connection with your receiver.
