    Feb 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: An abundance of options and great output
    Cons: You need to read the manual

    Summary: When I came across the Toshiba SD3109 in an online auction, I really wondered how good it could be for only $299. For $300 I had a hard time finding a DVD player from a reputable manufacturer. The more I use the Toshiba, the more I love it. ... read more

    Pros: Dual-disk, HDCD, component video
    Cons: Known to be sensitive to disk damage

    Summary: I am not going to talk much about the quality and playback of the 3109 as all that sort of thing was excellent so there's no real reason to get into it, I am focusing here on the features that the 3109 has that may actually matter to someone looking to ... read more
