The editors didn't like

  • Picture suffers a loss of detail with HDMI output. Default picture settings cause Sharpening artifacts. Overly softened image quality when displaying JPEG files. Low-resolution menus.
  • Extended Detail Enhancement Modes provide only marginal improvement
  • No DVDAudio or SACD playback No 5.1 channel analog audio output option
  • No USB port for playback of digital still images or digital audio files
  • Cheap looking case and remote control...
  • Expensive for a DVD player
  • XDE picture controls are best left off for the most-accurate picture
  • Lacks features such as SACD playback and a USB port found on competing Oppo models
  • Poor aspect ratio control on nonanamorphic DVDs.
  • Will not replace a Blu-ray player
  • XDE technology is a questionable enhancement

  • ‘Sharp’ mode offers incredibly detailed pictures, naturally vibrant colours, smooth, stable motion, nice styling
  • Sound could do with just a little more refinement

  • The Toshiba XD-E500 is a solid upconverting DVD player, even with the extra settings turned off, and the sharp feature definitely adds detail. But due to the players £120 suggested price tag - roughly twice that of other upconverting players but pret...

  • Abstract:  Le moins que lon puisse dire, cest que la « fameuse » technologie XDE (eXtended Detail Enhancement) nest pas vraiment mise en avant lorsquon regarde le site Internet de Toshiba, à la section Lecteurs de DVD XD-E500. On apprend juste que, « grâce à ...

  • Abstract:  Si vous suivez l’actualité des supports numériques, vous ne serez pas surpris d’apprendre que le format DVD n’en a plus pour très longtemps. En effet, le disque Blu-ray devrait au fil du temps prendre le dessus. Malgré l’échec du format directement co...

  • Zu unseren wichtigsten Erkenntnissen zählt, dass die “Billigheimer” mit teuren Abspielgeräten nicht wirklich mithalten können. Zwar können die Player mit schnellen Startzeiten und bei der Wiedergabe von DivX-, MP3- und JPEG-Wiedergabe punkten, aber bei de...

  • Abstract:  Ein neues Seh-Erlebnis verspricht Toshiba Kinofans mit dem XDE500KE: Herkömmliche DVDs soll der Player fast so brillant abspielen wie ein Blu-ray-Gerät. Ob das Modell hält, was der Hersteller vollmundig verspricht, hat AUDIO VIDEO FOTO BILD in einem au...

  • Toshiba bietet mit seiner XDE-Technik eine hervorragende DVD-Bildqualität zum niedrigen Preis. Da der Player recht effektiv nur Konturen und Details in der Schärfe anhebt, gelingt es, ein wesentlich plastischeres Bild aus DVDs zu gewinnen ohne dass das...

  • Abstract:  Toshiba skrotade hd dvd, men fortsätter att utveckla dvd-spelaren. Testarna anser att Toshiba XD-E500 ger nytt liv till dvd-samlingen men att resultatet inte är lika bra som med blu-ray.
