With the help of DVD players/recorders you can watch/record videos of high quality, play MP3-CDs, audio CDs and audio DVDs, as well as look through your photos in JPG format. DVD recorders often have an in-built hard disk on which you can record your home videos, edit them and burn them to DVD afterwards, or record your favourite TV programmes so you can watch them later. Some DVD recorders even have automatic ad recognition: simply start watching the movie half an hour or so after the broadcast started and it will skip all those unwanted advertisements for you, so you never need to watch any ads if you don\'t want to!

After a production-related delay of several months, Toshibas second HD DVD player is now available in the UK.The HD-XE1 is a step up model from the cheaper HD-E1, with Toshiba claiming it offers better features and better build quality - not to mentio...
Good Fantastic picture, Improved connections, Good looking and well built...
Bad Slight judder during horizontal pans...
We reviewed Toshiba’s HD DVD HD-E1 a few months back and we were quite surprised with its video quality and affordability. Now, we take the Toshiba HD DVD HD-XE1 for a ride to see whether the extra hundred dollars that comes with the player’s...
Able to output HD video in glorious 1080p and audio in almost equally glorious lossless surround, this is the UKs most advanced HD-DVD player. Its also the priciest, but what do you think Toshiba is? A charity? Shame on you. The sleek black design...
Good 1080p gorgeousness, Top connections.
Bad No 7.1 surround sound.
Bottom line A bit slow to get going, but still the best HD-DVD player in the kingdom.
OK, let’s get the obvious bit out of the way first. Yes, there’s a format war. Yes, this Toshiba deck ‘only’ plays HD-DVD discs and most additional legacy discs, such as DVD and CD. And yes, that means if some movies only come out...

Bottom line With an retail proce of around £650, the HD-XE1 is still reasonably priced when you consider its features. Given that youll need a fairly high-end telly to make the most of it, its competitively priced and, PlayStation 3 aside, still cheaper than th...

Bottom line While the HD-XE1 is without a doubt the best HD-DVD player on the Australian market, its also the most expensive. Non-enthusiasts may find the HD-XE1s asking price a little high, and ultimately may be better served by a more affordable model.
