    Tosh SD2109 was the first DVD player I had & the picture & sound quality on it still beats some of the newer competition today imo.

    The only reason I changed was because it was a R2 only machine & would have been too expensive to chip it. It still does a fine job as my bedroom DVD player.

    Yeah, when I bought my first player (way back in 1997/98) it was a toss up between this and a samsung 709. I believe the picture quality was about the same, but I went for the samsung as it did ntsc to pal 50 and I didn't have a ntsc capable tv.

    I still use it now, and would agree that the pq is still better than a lot of modern players. Build quality still feels better.

    I regreted not going for the tosh when the dual layered disks appeared (the 709 then decided to live in stutter city until I updated the eprom). Its been multiregion since the day I bought it, never refused to play a rce title, allowed perfect backups of my dvds to my e30 (guess it was made before cgms was introduced) and didn't even know what macrovision is :)

    Pitty it doesn't play cdr freely or dvd-r or It would still be at the heart of my av set up!

    Nathan, The SD2109 is in fact a UK model, as is the 100E, the differences between the 2 are that the 100E has a different remote control & a digital optical out on the rear, along with an S-video connector.
