4.0 out of 5 stars A good all-in-one solution, but has some design flaws, September 20, 2004
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Toshiba SD-P7000 17" LCD TV with Built-In DVD Player (Electronics)
Despite the title, this is NOT a portable DVD player. This is a 17'' wide-screen LCD TV with a built-in slot-loading DVD player on the side. It is the only model I found at an affordable price that offered this feature. There is a Zenith and an LG that I am aware of, but those sell for much more.

The good:

Picture quality is good for movies, ok for cable tv

Intergraded DVD player is ideal for wall-mounting. Reduces the number of wires and also the need for an equipment rack

Nice TV/DVD combo for bedroom or a small space

The bad:

Cost - a separate LCD screen & DVD player can be found for less

The DVD mechanism is noisy

Zoom function is useless only available for DVD (not TV) and the zoom text-dialog never clears from the screen, so black bars are inevitable.

There are no direct buttons to switch inputs, must cycle through 4-5 inputs to switch between TV and DVD

It is not possible to set screen size at 4:3 for TV and 16:19 for DVD. Must manually switch every time

The remote feels cheap

Conclusion:

While not without flaws, this is a good all-in-one package to use wall-mounted at a reasonable price.
