Is the Toshiba 240E better than the 330E?

    I've just picked up a secondhand 330, which uinfortunately has a fault. Seen some excellent reviews of the 240E - is this a better machine.? notice it has prog scan which is a big pull for me.

    any thoughts as to the overall pic qaulity of both models?

    I have a 330 and it delivers a superb picture through the component outputs. RGB scart is good as well. I've not seen a 240 to compare it to though. What is the fault on the one you have?

    It vibrates badly when the disc starts scanning initially - it does settle down after a time tho' -but it's noisy

    A mate is selling a 500 series Tosh - so might go for that instead of the 240e

    It sounds mad I know, but so do a lot of things I suggest. Place a coin under either one of the feet on the underside of the DVD player and see if the noise gets better or worse. I had a player with a warped chassis and this cured it. Give it a go, you've got nothing to loose apart from your coin :D

    Cheer, Mylo :)
