After a long fight with my partner of what I wanted for Christmas, I eventually plucked up the courage to ask for a DVD player. This did not go down very well to begin with as he feels he is some sort of technical buff when it comes to gadgets. I think not! He is actually one of those kinds of...

I purchased myself a Toshiba 2109 multi region following several problems with a Samsung 709 I had previously purchased. It was immediatly evident that the Toshiba was superior in every respect to the Samsung. Picture quality is on the same level as the sound quality - excellent. It has an...

The Toshiba SD-2109 may not look the business but inside that dull shell is one hell of a player. I bought my SD-2109 just over a year ago. I enjoy movies and DVD seemed perfect for me. After looking through several magazines, it was clear that the SD-2109 was performing extremely well in the...

Contranot that i can see

when i first decided to step up into the dvd world i wanted a relatively cheap but easy to use dvd player. that is what i've got with this player. it is also multi-region but unlike a lot of other players this one has a very useful automatic region changer. when i compared this one to that of my...

“Brilliant piece of kit!”

published 17/07/2000

Probetter picture, sound quality

Contrawon't play your video tapes!

I finally gave in to a bit more technology when the video player started chewing up all our tapes! I bought a DVD magazine to see what was available and came up with this Toshiba machine, already hacked and delivered for less than £250. It really is good, all the movies play so much better and of...

ContraNo optical output, but nothing else!

Toshiba's entry level machine is getting quite old now with an updated version due to hit the shops any day now, but it still amongst the finest of the budget players. Your £300 buys you arguably the finest performance of any player in this price category, with a picture quality that rivals some...

“Best DVD Player under £300”

published 04/09/2000

ProOverall quality, ease of use

ContraRequires hacking for multi-region

Having hunted around for the best deals/best specs I kept coming back to the SD-2109, so I bought one, along with 7 free DVDs, for £299. Since then I have spent many happy hours watching my favourite (and some not so favourite!) films and enjoying every minute of them! Everything feature of this...

ProGreat picture and sound quality

ContraRemote control looks like a brick

After looking at the different players on the market I finally decided to opt for the Toshiba 2109. I had considered the Samsung but decided that entering the hack every time I wanted to watch a region 1 disk was a little to much trouble. The picture quality is outstanding and has great sound to...

“Smart and Sexy DVD player”

published 28/05/2001

ProLooks Good, Reliable, Easy To Use

ContraRather Large Remote Control

The Toshiba 2109 is a great DVD player. I bought it when it first came out, approximately 2 and a half years ago, and its still working perfectly. It outputs a great, crisp picture and good sound. There is also the option to create Surround Sound on just two speakers with a simple press of a...

“don't miss out”

published 27/07/2000

I have had my toshiba 2109 now for about 1 year and I have had only one complaint with the box. I was getting intermitant flaring of colour every 20 secs or so. I got this box replaced and now I have a perfect picture everytime. Being the first dvd I've owned I was amazed at the high clarity of...

“My DVD player”

published 20/06/2000

ProFar superior to VCRs

ContraNot everything is available on DVD yet

I didn't think much of DVD players when they first came out, I figured they would be more or less the Laser Disc players of the new millenium. Here one year, gone the next. I was mistaken. DVD is all it is as good as advertised. This Toshiba DVD is the one I bought. It has piles of options which...

published 20/07/2000

Propicture/sound quality, range of films available

Contraludicrous remote control

A great machine at a very reasonable price indeed. Everything you hear (and doubt) about DVD picture quality really IS true. Drawbacks? Well, the remote is a bit fiddly - not to mention about four feet long!, but that's about it. We have a Toshiba video & TV as well, and I can confirm that they...

ContraModification needed for Region Free

Despite what another review says on this site the Toshiba 2109 does NOT play anything other than Region 2 DVDs unless you buy a "Chipped" model that has disabled the region checking. These modification chips can also be bought and fitted after purchase. This costs about £30 and involves opening...

ContraDVD can be an expensive hobby

I've had my machine for about a year now and what a wonderful year I've had. I used to buy a few films on VHS however since getting this machine I wouldn't like to guess how much money I've spent on DVD's !! The machine it self comes with all the leads you require, having been a novice to home...
