    I'm thinking of buying one of these models, but I'm not sure if it's worth spending the extra on the 500E, since I probably won't use the dvd audio option? Does anyone own one of these or have any comments? Also, I was thinking of buying from Richer Sounds, already modified, but I'm not sure if the mod will be OK with RCE DVDs.

    Cheers.

    According to Richer's engineers, their Toshiba multiregion mods are NOT RCE compatible. Re: the 500e vs 200e debate, there doesn't seem to be enough DVD-A material around to justify the price premium of the 500e. Save your money, wait until there are more titles around and the price of the hardware has fallen/quality improved and get a DVD-A machine then. Go for the 210e which replaces the 200. It's a corker. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

    I agree with ANOpax I have the 210e and it is a superb machine. The only problems I find with this machine is trying to get a software mod so that I can play region 1 dvds and the other problem is when playing cds you can see the time remaining or the track that you are on but not both together. Having said all that these are small problems that dont bother me too much. I would reckon that when dvd audio really takes off that Tosh will bring out a cheaper model with better spec than the 500e

    The 200E is an excellent machine, I find the dual tray very useful. The quality is superb.

    I got mine from dvdmagic.net and it is fully RCE compatable.
