Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD Player Reviewed
If you’re an early adopter, the general consensus of DVD Town’s review of the Toshiba HD-A1 won’t matter a whit to you, but if you’re considering buying one or merely curious as to the next generation of the venerable DVD, the review is worth a read. Suffice it to say, the picture quality of the unit was excellent, but there were some downsides (which is to be expected in a first-run product). For one thing, it’s terribly slow to load and launch a movie (~30 seconds) as the HD-A1 bears more in common with a computer than a DVD player. Also, the ventilation fan on the unit is quite audible, which for some could be very distracting. Finally, the remote leaves room for improvement, but that’s typical of almost all electronic devices these days.
Keep in mind that if you’re a Netflix user, they’ve started stocking HD-DVDs and you can set your account to automatically ship movies in the new format if they’re available.
