Product Description

Product Description

4-Power Digital Zoom DTS, 10 Bit, 27 MHz D/A Converter

Amazon.com

Toshiba has pared an excellent DVD player down to its essentials for high-quality sound and image playback, making the SD-2109 a no-frills alternative to higher-priced models. With Dolby Digital and DTS digital-audio outputs, as well as composite, S-Video, and ColorStream component video outputs, we found the SD-2109 well-equipped to power any burgeoning home-theater system.

While more flexible DVD machines offer features such as analog decoding from Dolby Digital sources, karaoke-microphone inputs, and headphone jacks, the SD-2109 is by no means bereft of features. Besides traditional DVD features such as camera-angle selection, subtitling, and language preference, the Toshiba SD-2109 also offers three levels of zoom and reverse, and forward-play speeds from 1/8x to 30x. The Toshiba SD-2109 also does a great job locating specific sections on a disk through title and chapter skip as well as a convenient "time search" feature.

A nice touch available on this and other Toshiba DVD players is Video Black Level expander circuitry. With this function you can expand the picture's overall contrast range to derive richer, deeper blacks and finer tonal gradation, both of which we found enhanced low-light viewing. As expected, the SD-2109 proved extremely easy to set up and navigate, tiny remote and all. A super entry-level DVD player!

Pros:

  • Dolby Digital and DTS outputs
  • Component video outputs
  • Good features for the money

Cons:

  • Nonglow remote control
  • No headphone jack

When I first started looking at DVD players the first ones I looked at was the Sony players. I read a lot of reviews for different DVD players before I bought mine. Almost every player I read about had some glitch. Either they stoped mid-way through, or the audio sync was bad (sony), or something else was wrong. So I ended up buying a Toshiba SD-2109, because that was the one product I didn't hear a single bad about, and I searched for bad reviews. Also for the price of the Toshiba about $230-$270 (depending on where you go) was great. Everything about this DVD player is great. It has a great picture, the remote is easy to use, has DTS and AC3 outs Svideo, 3 types of zoom (which is really handy) and much much more. I would highly recomend this DVD player. The only thing that I wish it had that did NOT come with it was the SVideo cord. I had to buy that seperate. But unless you have a newer TV that has SVideo inputs you wont need it.
BTW I rented the Matrix and had not one problem watching it.

I haven't had any problems with this player at all. It's performs well at what I bought it to do. Give me high quality audio and video. The only reason I give the review a 4 star rating instead of a 5 is because of the extremely small remote. Not a big deal but it is kinda hard to memorize button positions when your single finger covers 2-3 buttons. If you can stand that, then I suggest you buy. I don't see how you could lose.

the image quality is good, as well as the audio, but i would definatly recommend steping up to the sd3109.why? the remote on the 3109 is a million times easier to use , the 3109 has component video out for even better picture quality, and has built in DD decoding.also, for audiophiles, the 3109 is the only DVD player below $2000 that will read the HDCD format (high resolution CD)which are CD's encoded with 20 bit info versus 16 bit on standard CD's.the differance is very noticable. so overall the extra $100 is well spent on the upgrade to a 3109

This was the first DVD player I purchased and I must say it was well worth it, I've watched movies on the 800 dollar DVD players and you can't tell the diffrence. You dont get a ton of extra featurs like with some, but you really dont need most of the extra featurs anyway. You can see why this model is always sold out, but when it is in stcok make sure to get it, you wont be disappointed.

This is a high quality, no non-sence DVD player with movie theater performance. The sound is excellent, the video is sharp and the controls easy to use and understand. I looked at the other players and found this one to be the best in features for the price.

Excellent player for the price. If your TV does not have an"S" video connector or red, yellow, white audio videoconnector slots, only a coaxial cable type connection, just go and pick up a Video RF Modulator, which works fine.

PROS: * Above average picture and audio clarity: Before purchasing SD2109, compared it to more expensive DVD players (ie: Sony DVPS550D, Panasonic DVD-A320, Yamaha DVD-S795) and found that the Toshiba's picture/audio clarity was noticeably better than most. In addition, when compared to other DVD players in the same price range (ie: Sony DVPS330, Panasonic DVD-A120), the SD2109's picture/audio quality was noticeably superior than all. Picture quality is very sharp, colour definition is very rich/robust (due to 10-Bit, 27 mHz Video D/A Converter). Audio is very clear/crisp (due to24-Bit/96 kHz PCM Audio Compatibility). 3D Spatializer (mimicks virtual 3D surround sound via only 2 speakers) is a little gimmicky though * Colorstream Component video outputs: hooked up SD2109 to my Sony Wega KV32FV15 via Monster M500V interconnect cables. Produces the sharpest, clearest picture/colour I've ever seen on a TV . If your TV has component video inputs, use them (don't be cheap with your cables though). * Easy-to-use on-screen menu selections (icon-based) for easy setting up of the SD2109 * Zoom feature is really nice: allows very good clarity at 4 (?) zoom levels * Another under-estimated feature...press stop and press play to resume where you pressed stop. No need to start from the beginning and skip to whatever chapter you were at. also, time search is useful * Value for the dollar: for the price, dollar-for-dollar, the best DVD player on the market. * Watch "The Bug's Life" and see for yourself just how good the SD2109 is
CONS: * Remote: I don't care what anyone says...the remote buttons are too small and I find that the buttons need a "heavy" and "precise" click to make the remote function * Aesthetically looks cheap: personal wish....

I've had good luck with Toshiba electronics in the past so I bought this DVD player. It's a good basic model. Very easy to set up and I liked the remote too. I was pleased to discover that I can have both my VCR and DVD plugged into my TV simultaneously, which was a concern before I bought this since I record some shows. In my opinion, you don't have to spend the extra $$$ for the 3109 model unless you want the double disc feature.
