The cheapest standalone next-gen disc player

Cheaper than Blu-ray ; Great picture quality

No 5.1 analogue outputs ; Poor remote

Toshiba HD-E1 HD DVD player review

 

2007 is going to be the year of high definition, or so we are told, and with that, Toshiba has finally waded in with two players in the UK that are capable of playing back its next generation HD DVD discs. Although this is the first generation of...

Picture quality, styling, playback standard DVDs

Format war question, no 1080p playback

Amazing, affordablish, but hindered by a format war

Toshiba HD-E1 review

 

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 That means the HD-E1, the oldest model in the current range, is increasingly outdated – and indeed, Toshiba plans...

Toshiba HD-E1 review

 

While it lacks advanced features and is very slow to respond, the HD-E1 is the first standalone high-definition movie player that feels like it's worth the money. With excellent picture quality, a large selection of movies already available and...

Superb HD pictures ; Good DVD upscaling ; Much more affordable than a Blu-ray player ; Slim design

Lethargic operating times ; No 1080p ; No analogue surround sound output

Sound quality is also excellent, although again we have very little to compare it to. Effects are livelier than with regular Dolby Digital, so we look forward to hearing more of Dolby Digital Plus and True HD in the future

Recommended!

Toshiba HD-E1 HD DVD Player

 

Toshiba throws the cat among the pigeons with a surprisingly affordable HD DVD player.

Toshiba has really raised the bar with the HD-E1, producing a high quality HD DVD player at a very affordable price. Although £350 is a lot of money to many people, considering that a Blu-ray player will cost you well over twice as much, the HD-E1 is a...

Flying in the face of current inflationary trends Toshiba's entry-level HD DVD deck has recently had its price cut. A step-up model which adds 1080p output to the HD-E1 will soon be on sale for £450

Cheaper than Blu-ray, Great picture quality

No 5.1 analogue outputs, Poor remote

This HD DVD player couples an eye-opening price with some great pictures, making it a serious player in this new market

Review: Toshiba HD-E1 HD DVD player

 

The UK's first HD DVD player is finally here. We had a look to see how it measures up to its big Blu-ray rival...

Good value, generally fine picture quality and superb DVD upscaling

Lacks full-range outputs for HD audio, disc quality is variable and the format war is far from over

HDMI is also used by the HD-E1 to output HD DVD images or to upscale normal DVD to 720p or 1080i levels. The relatively stripped down player also supports CD playback but little else (no SACD, DVD-Audio, MP3 or DivX) and of course it won't play Blu-ray...

Toshiba's HD-E1 is the first HD-DVD player we've had through the office. While we looked at the Qosmio G30 notebook with a built in HD-DVD drive, the ...

Brilliant image quality, great DVD upscaling, online capabilities in the future, competitively priced

Slow interface, no 1080p support

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.

Neuf mois après les Etats-Unis et le Japon, Toshiba s’apprête enfin à larguer ses premières platines HD-DVD sur le Vieux Continent.

If you have a big-screen TV in your living and you're hungry for HD content, the Toshiba HD-E1 delivers great picture quality.

USB and Ethernet for expansion ; Currently cheaper than Blu-ray players ; HD DVD movies look great on HD-ready TVs ; Upscaled regular DVDs well

No support for 1080p "full HD ; No analog 5.1-channel audio ; Remote control not backlit ; Some performance issues ; Locked to Region 4 for DVD

So far Blu-ray has the upper hand in terms of movie studio support, but HD DVD is cheaper to produce. Still, it remains to be seen whether HD DVD or Blu-ray will triumph as the successor to DVD, and unless you're willing to take a gamble, we'd...
