  • Energy efficient. 1080p24 output.
  • Picture suffers a loss of detail with HDMI output. Default picture settings cause Sharpening artifacts. Overly softened image quality when displaying JPEG files. Low-resolution menus.
  • If you dont want to spring for Blu-ray, there are plenty of upconverting DVD players to choose from, but the Toshiba XD-E500 is one to avoid....

  • Abstract:  I can remember a time when Toshiba offered entry level DVD players and also high dollar flagship models like the SD-9200. As DVD players became a commodity Toshiba logically focused on mainstream consumer players much like the XD-E500 reviewed here. T...

  • Abstract:  Toshiba dropped its support for HD DVD nearly a year ago, grudgingly conceding that BD is the de facto high-def optical disc format in much of the world. Still, the company hasn’t exactly embraced Sony’s format quite yet. The XD-E500 is Toshiba’s budge...

  • Abstract:  It’s been a blue year for Toshiba. The company threw in the towel to end the so-called format wars last March, making the HD DVD (high-definition digital video disc) obsolete overnight. As of press time, the company hasn’t jumped on the blue bandwagon ...

  • Good video upscaling performance, Good CD playback quality, Very easytosetup, Very slim and compact, Affordable Price Point for those still shying away from Bluray.
  • Extended Detail Enhancement Modes provide only marginal improvement, No DVDAudio or SACD playback No 5.1 channel analog audio output option, No USB port for playback of digital still images or digital audio files, Cheap looking case and remote control...
  • With the demise of HD-DVD, Toshiba is now focused on improving the upscaling capabilities for standard DVD. With improved 1080p video upscaling capability over previous Toshiba upscaling DVD players, the XD-E500 does deliver a very good picture on an H...

  • Abstract:  Editors note: You might be surprised to see a review of a DVD player at UAV, since we havent published such reviews in quite a while. For more on this, see my blog about it. On February 19, 2008, Toshiba announced it would no longer develop, manuf...

  • I sincerely hope that Toshiba comes to its senses sometime soon and starts to produce Blu-ray players, because if the company keeps its head firmly in the sand, it's going to seriously damage its standing in the home entertainment arena. Now that the form...

  • Abstract:  Toshiba hung on for a couple more months, offering aggressive price discounts on their newest HD DVD players, but it was all for naught. So, they quietly withdrew from the optical disc scene to consider their next steps.

  • Solid DVD playback performance with extended definition (XDE) disabled; can play DivX, MP3, and WMA files burned on CDs and DVDs; can output DVD in 24 frames per second.
  • Expensive for a DVD player; XDE picture controls are best left off for the most-accurate picture; lacks features such as SACD playback and a USB port found on competing Oppo models; poor aspect ratio control on nonanamorphic DVDs.
  • The Toshiba XD-E500s XDE picture enhancements dont live up to the hype. While its a solid upscaling DVD player, its high price makes it a hard sell. Specifications: Sound output mode: Stereo; Weight: 3.5 lbs; Surround sound effects: 3D Surround; See...
