Note: Toshiba SD-P2600 8.9" Portable DVD Player (Silver) is no longer being manufactured. You may want to consider purchasing the newer Toshiba SD-P2700 8.9" Portable DVD Player instead.

Rely on it when you're on the road and savor its performance at home: Toshiba's SD-P2600 DVD-Video/DVD-Audio portable DVD player is distinguished by its sleek appearance, 8.9-inch polysilicon widescreen display, and high-resolution 1,024 x 600-pixel image. The TFT (thin-film-transistor) active-matrix display delivers film-like images rich in detail, color resolution, and contrast.

Besides media playback versatility--it handles everything from DVD-Video to DVD-R, VCD, MP3/WMA CD, and a host of image formats--the SD-P2600 offers Toshiba's ColorStream PRO progressive-scan component-video outputs (for use with high-definition and HD-ready TVs) and employs an 10-bit, 54 MHz video digital-to-analog converter to cement its guarantee of stellar image quality. A sleek, credit-card-sized remote control simplifies operation.

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-P2600 also performs 3:2 pulldown detection (Digital Cinema Progressive). DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown reversal digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

Further, a Toshiba feature called Direct Digital Solution sends a DVD's video information to the LCD driver directly from the unit's MPEG decoder in its original digital form, bypassing unnecessary digital-to-analog conversion steps to deliver the best picture quality possible.

Toshiba's digital photo viewer displays images right on your television in a variety of popular formats, including Konica, Fuji Photo, Kodak Photo CD, as well as standard JPEG files--there's even a Secure Digital/MultiMedia Card slot to further simplify viewing. An onscreen display walks you through the process of making your own slideshows, in which you can preset the viewing time of each slide as well as zoom, rotate, and pan each photo.

Leading-edge 24-bit/192 kHz digital-analog converters from Analog Devices delivers exceptional 2-channel DVD-Audio frequency response and dynamic range. DVD-Audio discs deliver high-resolution audio, capturing and reproducing all of the nuances of the original performance and offering high-resolution surround sound as well as stereo. (DVD-Audio resolution is available through the analog audio outputs only.)

A pair of built-in headphone jacks let you watch or listen with a partner, while Spatializer N-2-2 ULTRA and Natural Headphone virtual surround sound algorithms simulate surround through 2 speakers or 1 set of headphones. Built-in stereo speakers grant headphone-free listening through high-efficiency titanium drivers in bass-reflex enclosures for more full-bodied sound than typical portables produce.

The SD-P2600 passes both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals through its coaxial-type digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. The supplied lithium-ion battery blends seamlessly with the player's cosmetic profile and offers around 3.5 hours of uninterrupted movie or music entertainment. The battery also charges quickly, in around 3 hours.

What's in the Box
DVD player, remote control, remote battery, car cord, a component-video interconnect, a stereo audio/composite-video interconnect, an AC power adapter, a user's manual, and warranty information.

I sent it back immedietely.

The sound produced by the external speakers is pretty good too, the movie is sometimes hard to hear in a noisy vehicle so headphones may be required on a road trip.

Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and can recommend the product.

I went shopping for a portable DVD player and the store I went to had about 14 different portable DVD players plugged into the same video feed playing The Lord of the Rings DVD. This portable DVD player blew all its competitors out of the water - including the two Panasonic models I came to look at. None of them had a picture that could compare to this one. The colors are rich and the black is as dark as I have ever seen. The sound produced by the external speakers is pretty good too, the movie is sometimes hard to hear in a noisy vehicle so headphones may be required on a road trip. Two headphone jacks are on the side of the unit. I have not experienced any problems with viewing angle when watching a movie with two people with the player inbetween us.

Turn it on, plug in the headphones, and you'll find yourself completely immersed.
I can't imagine a better picture--great colors, not grainy at all, really nothing to distract you from the DVD you are watching.
The audio is almost unbelievable. I have a nice but not-to-expensive pair of Sony headphones attached and the sound is better than any movie theater or home system I have ever heard.
As to the finer points, like having to start over after a power shutdown, I really can't find fault with the machine. Once you learn to use the navigation button, you can do pretty much anything you want without losing your place or shutting down the power. Yes, if you turn the unit off you have to find your place again, but that takes less than a minute and then you are back to a really fine experience.
I have owned the 2600 for about a month and have not had any problems at all. Easy recharge, lightweight, just the right screen size for up-close viewing, and lots of features and options.
If this isn't a five star piece of equipment, I don't know what is!

I looked around for about a month before I made my purchase of the Toshiba. There are a lot of players out there but after reading all the reviews and going to the stores to see them work the Toshiba was hands down the best for the money. Samsung was a close second but what I liked was that the picture on the Toshiba was brighter and sharper. The Toshiba also has a better angle so two people can watch a movie together with not having to sit on top of each other. The sound is great and with the head phones on you really could hear the surrond sound. When I was done buying my case , ear phones and airplane adapter it cost me a little more but well worth it. I really can't see why you would want to go any larger and spend more money because they are getting to the point that for a couple hundred more you can get a laptop. You will not be disapointed with this player.

I would like to comment on a couple reviews regarding play after shut down. All you need to do is pause the movie you are watching and then stop it. You will then be able to continue in the same spot once the power is turned back on.

I used the Toshiba for a 7 day, 1200 mile road trip recently with two 10 year old kids, no problems -- the player worked great. Played all of our DVDs, only once did the player skip over some rough road. The two headphone jacks are great, I purchased headphones at Radio Shack, $10 each. In addition to the car, the DVD was very handy when staying at the hotels (there's usually not much on local TV). The battery life was not a problem, usually about 2.5 hrs.

This DVD player was $530 (w/tax), but worth the extra $150-200 it to get the larger 9" screen. I previously purchased (on Amazon) a 7" player, but the 7" screen is just too small. Also, I do recommend purchasing the Targus DVD401 Vehicle Portable DVD case.

Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and can recommend the product.

The Toshiba SD-P2600 is by far the best DvD player on the market at under $500(Sug 699.99), It is loaded with features, Progressive Scan, SD/MMC Card Slot, 8.9 inch screen, Remote Control Anti-Skip & Car Cord Adapter, and much much more.... Car Cord Adapter is to short.
It comes with a 3 1/2 Hour battery, but I got 3 hours 50 mins wow! the built in Speakers go louder then most Portable DvD Players, But that is not saying a lot, get some Sennheiser Headphones or Earbugs, and or some Portable Speakers or Pc Speakers like Creative Labs SBS 350 2.1 just plug into one of the 2 Headphone Output Jacks, and you will have a Kick A_S System!

Verified Purchase
You may have seen the no-name brands the big chain stores -- and they may be a good value if you just plan on handing the player to the kids in the car. But if you care at all about sound and video quality, you should at least check out this unit. The difference in quality is pretty significant.
Video: No comparison. The video on this unit is really sharp and colorful. The 'Mintek' brand 10" unit is larger, but much less sharp.
Sound: Again, this unit is the clear winner. At max volume the kids complained and asked to have it turned down. The dialog and higher freqency effects and music remain clear through the entire volume range. Bass is absent, but that is acceptable to me on a unit this small.
Usability: Digital controls for the most common features (volume, power and navigation). On-screen menu kicks the daylights out of the Mintek unit and is available without using the remote. The Toshiba is faster on power-up and navigation.
Build Quality: This is probably a wash. The Mintek unit uses analog switches for volume and power, and sounds like a washing machine when it spins up the drive. The Toshiba is quieter on power-up, but both settle down when actually playing the movie. Both feel like they would last 10 seconds in the hands of my two year old, but should hold up pretty well with moderate care.
I dont know about in-car use, but I would guess that would be a function of how messed up your disks and road surface are. Hope this helps.
