Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray PlayerThe Toshiba BDX2000 is the first Blu-ray player from the brand that brought us the highly rated but eventually ill fated HD-DVD high definition players.

The Toshiba BDX2000 is a fairly modestly specced player with similar specifications to the Sony BDP-S360 and Panasonic DMP-BD60. Round the back of the player we have the standard connection options of an HDMI socket and component video outputs and optical and digital coaxial audio outputs. The player can process Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master audio so has the high definition sound side covered too. There is also an Ethernet port on the rear so you can connect to the internet to download BD-LIVE content. Unlike the similarly priced Sony BDP-S560 though there is no wireless connectivity so connecting and trailing a network cable to the BDX-2000 could be tricky.

Where the Toshiba BDX2000 stands out though is in the looks department. Its sleek angled front really does look the business, like many Blu-ray players these days, the whole front of the unit folds down to reveal the disc loading tray and playback buttons. The display is actually on the main unit and appears through a transparent section on the right of the player.

The Toshiba BDX2000 then is much like many of the other Blu-ray players on the market then with the great quality of Blu-ray high definition, but with great looks and the quality you would expect from Toshiba.

What to consider before you buy the Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray Player

The RRP of £199 looks high to us so keep any eye on the online prices and try to get it for less.

Why you should buy the Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray Player

One of the truly great looking Blu-ray players, and pretty much everything you need for your high definition home entertainment. Rating: 4/5
