Customer Reviews

Do not buy this piece of junk.
amaised
There has been a few times that the Power button did NOT turn it off - I had to temporarily unplug it before it would go off.

I bought this player 2010-07-01 and found two weeks into ownership that it has random issue with not turning on via remote or power button. Its connected via HDMI directly to a Toshiba LED TV. I called Toshiba and they created a ticket for the issue. At first no one admitted there was a problem and later as we tried to diagnose the problem to find the cause they admitted that some but not all units exhibit this problem and it doesn't matter what set they're connected to. They hinted that replacement had corrected 95% of all customer problems for "no power up". Unplugging the unit for 20secs corrects it for a while.
Turning off the CEC HDMI link for TV control to the BD player will help most people. Also leaving my TV in the quick power up mode keeps something alive which allowed the unit to power on 100% of the time when the TV is left in that mode.

Don't get me wrong, Toshiba offered to RMA the unit up front so no complaints there. Also the Service Center connects in the USA!!!! +5 stars for that!

Its a nice unit, remote is easy to use, Net-Flix streams flawlessly through the RG45 cable. Its slow to start a BlueRay disc but I think thats normal. My only complaints are simple; If I push the eject button, do as I say and give me the DISC! Yes, its slow to respond in that way but picture and sound are great. Initially I had audio sync issues as the audio was delayed by surround sound so getting the correct settings in the Audio format output and receiver settings fixed that.

I'm sending it back and we'll see what comes my way in return. A newer model or a replacement of the same model?

**Update 2011-01-19
Since the 1st unit was RMA'd, Toshiba has sent me two more BDX-2500 on their dime shipping expenses covered.

Verified Purchase
waited months for this to come on the market. finally available last week. bought one for my sweetie.

context: she has a toshiba 32in lcd 720p hdtv and fios hdtv box. i have a sony s370 blu-ray player, sony a/v receiver, vudu bx100 hd streaming/download box, and dish vip411k hdtv satellite box with external hard disk dvr, output through an akai 42in plasma 1080i hdtv monitor and 7.1 sony speakers. we both have basic verizon fios internet connections. this is my fifth or sixth generation dvd player.

price: keeps dropping. worth shopping. as low as $128 so far. a real deal from amazon with free ship + no tax. beware of tigerdirect price guarantee ... they only give you the overcharge in their own funny money for your next order. at least bestbuy gives you real money credit back on your charge card.

appearance: excellent. better than the sony s370. and definitely better than the s370 pinhead button switches.

setup: easy for the player in general, but a bit fussy for online streaming services. must establish external accounts and link/activate player with pc online at same time. tedious, but effective. steps, sequence, and codes differ for each service. no hdmi cable included, so bring your own. critical firmware updates are clean and fast.

blu-ray: tested with parts of iron man and all of crazy heart. faster startup than sony s350, and maybe faster than the s370. excellent play quality, as expected.

internet: toshiba says you must use only their $50 usb adapter if you want a wireless connection. that sucks. when are manufacturers going to stop the proprietary hardware baloney they hope will drive related product sales? nice try.

This was my first Blu-Ray player and I am very pleased. I bought it for the Netflix feature which works great. I also purchased a 50ft cat5 cord because you need a lan adapter to play internet material.

Bd load quick enough and play fine. SD slot is a big plus and the player plays video, MP3's and Pictures from a SD card with no problems. Home screen is easy to use and the picture quality is great.

I would would highly Recommend.

Player Would Not turn on after a regular firmware update. Toshiba replaced it with a far inferior model. Would not buy.

On paper this player seems perfect, Blu-ray and multiple streaming services for under $150. That's why I was so disappointed when I purchased and had to return this unit not once but twice. Essentially there is some kind of recurring problem that causes intermittent "static" whenever it is on. The screen would show "snow"(similar to old analog TVs) and the speakers would make a loud crackle every 30 seconds or so. This would actually happen when nothing was playing and the player was just in the main menu screen, so clearly it's not a Blu-ray or streaming problem. The problem would get worse the longer the player was on, so I suspect it is heat-related. When it wasn't in static mode, picture and sounds looked great.

I purchased this unit twice from two different stores and had to return them both for the same problems. It's not my TV or cabling as the same setup works fine with a Samsung player I have. Bottom line, I wanted to love this player but it was consistently unwatchable.
