"Not perfect but much better than what you have read!"4.5 starson by TheLazyDog09
Pros: Nice looking. Great picture for Blu-Ray and DVD.
Cons: Reliability is the biggest concern.
Summary: I originally decided to purchase the LG BD570 instead of this unit due to a few poor reviews and many quality red flags from other reviews. I was not at all impressed with the LG. The tray was uncomfortable to load discs into and the DVD picture quality was poor. I then realized that most negative reviews of the Toshiba had mostly positive things to say about the picture quality. The player looks very nice, not the best but not as hideous as the Sony with that awful shelf on the bottom! The menus are equal to those on the LG. I don't see what CNET was so critical of. The remote is typical but has some great features like a dimmer button. Load times were equal to my Panasonic for most discs but Dark Knight seemed to take a lifetime to load. As for picture quality... easily equal to my Panasonic and way better than the LG. Blu-Rays look fantastic and DVD's look great. Easily one of the best up converters that I have seen. Online setup is super fast and easy. No problems so far with streaming material except that there could be more available. Hopefully they will update the firmware eventually. So far I am impressed with this purchase and hope that it keeps working. Toshiba has never let me down yet and once again I am impressed by their products.
