The first phase of my conversion of my home entertainment system to HDTV has begun with the purchase of a new DVD player, the Toshiba SD-350E. Ain’t it purdy?
It’s replacing my current Toshiba SD-220E, and comes with HDMI output, upscaling capability (720p/1080i), DivX playback, and multiregion capability via a simple hack. I’ve had my current one for a couple of years and have been constantly impressed with the quality for the price, but this new one takes the cake – all those features for £64 including shipping.
I’m not sure when exactly it will be here because of New Year and everything messing with the post, but I’m looking forward to trying it out. With any luck I’ll be buying the TV in the next week.
