With the help of DVD players/recorders you can watch/record videos of high quality, play MP3-CDs, audio CDs and audio DVDs, as well as look through your photos in JPG format. DVD recorders often have an in-built hard disk on which you can record your home videos, edit them and burn them to DVD afterwards, or record your favourite TV programmes so you can watch them later. Some DVD recorders even have automatic ad recognition: simply start watching the movie half an hour or so after the broadcast started and it will skip all those unwanted advertisements for you, so you never need to watch any ads if you don\'t want to!

Flying in the face of current inflationary trends Toshibas entry-level HD DVD deck has recently had its price cut. A step-up model, the HD-EP10, which adds 1080p output to the HD-E1 will soon be on sale for £450, the original price of this deck when i...
Good Cheaper than Blu-ray, Great picture quality...
Bad No 5.1 analogue outputs, Poor remote...
And decent its output is indeed. DVD was easily better than VHS, and while the step up from DVD to HD DVD isnt as immediately noticeable, spend a little time watching it and when you go back things just dont look quite right. DVD looks sharp enough...
Bottom line It may be the first consumer HD DVD player in Europe, but the HD-E1 shows all the signs of being a very mature product. Its output is gorgeous. It could be a bit quicker to load discs and it ought to offer support for 1080p - but these are just minor...
Lets forget for a moment that there are two competing high-definition DVD formats and ask whether it is worth paying a lot of money for high-definition DVD of either format. Ive just spent a week with Toshibas $1100 high-definiti...
SmartHouse takes the Toshiba HD DVD player HD-E1 for a spin, but wonders if the stunning hi-def prowess of HD DVD makes up for a lack of features. Toshibas HD-E1 has finally brought the HD DVD format to Australia. So is this the start of something bi...
The HD-disc format war resumes in earnest as Toshibas belated debut HD DVD player finally arrives in the UK, undercutting the price of the rival Blu-ray system. So was it worth the wait and can it be better than Blu-ray? Compared to the first US machi...
The Format war heats up with Toshs latest standalone player...
Good Picture quality, styling, playback standard DVDs...
Bad bits I feel are minor issues.I have had a couple of lockups which meant I had to remove the plug from the power source and re-insert it to reset the machine. Im sure the next software update will rectify this problem and besides its only happened a co...
Bottom line Amazing, affordablish, but hindered by a format war...
HD-DVD certainly has a price advantage over Blu-ray: Toshibas HD-E1 player is almost half the cost of Samsungs BD-P1000 Blu-ray player, reviewed right. Unfortunately, the design and build quality feel similar to DVD players costing £200 less. The...
Toshiba’s HD-DVD range has recently been given a revamp, with two new budget decks, the HD-EP30 and EP35, coming in to bolster the ranks. That means the HD-E1, the oldest model in the current range, is increasingly outdated – and indeed, Toshi...
Good High performance hi-def video for a very modest price. Will support hi-def surround sound (but only after a fashion)...
Bad Spec now looks out-of-date: it lacks 1080p, internal audio decoding for HD DVD surround sound and more...
Bottom line Often brilliant, occasionally frustrating, this is an intriguing early stab at the high-definition-disc future. It’s by no means complete, but if you fancy dipping a toe in the HD water without blowing a fortune, it could still be worth a go...
This is the UKs first HD-DVD player, offering Hi-Def movie playback for ?450. Thats less than half the price of Samsungs slightly disappointing BD-P1000 (T3 132, 3/5), which rides on the other HD bus. The Blu-Ray fun bus. Picture quality is superb...
Good Cheaper than Blu-Ray, Superb pictures.
Bad Unbearably slow to start, No analogue surround sound outputs or 1080p.
Bottom line This isnt flawless, but its still the best Hi-Def movie player available and its half the price of its Blu-Ray rivals...
While it is missing 1080p support and has a somewhat sluggish interface, the HD-E1 is a well priced High Definition player that supports both DVD and HD-DVD, and outputs exceptional image quality.
Good Brilliant image quality, great DVD upscaling, online capabilities in the future, competitively priced...
Bad Slow interface, no 1080p support The Final Word While it is missing 1080p support and has a somewhat sluggish interface, the HD-E1 is a well priced High Definition player that supports both DVD and HD-DVD, and outputs exceptional image quality.
Bottom line While it is missing 1080p support and has a somewhat sluggish interface, the HD-E1 is a well priced High Definition player that supports both DVD and HD-DVD, and outputs exceptional image quality.
Ultimately, ones interest in a HD DVD player will be directly proportional to the virtue one sees in high definition.All other things being equal, one would of course choose HD over DVD - and eventually, well all no doubt have a HD player of some str...
Good High quality and smooth playback. HDMI output at full 1080i. Connects to interrnet to receive live movie extras.
Bad Expensive. Doesnt support MPEG4 playback. No 1080p.
