    I can only talk from the side of the 735 - I have one and I find it awesome.
    The only thing I would saty about the Sony DVD's is that they seem to lack the Zoom function many other brands have.
    But I do not 'miss' this function personally.
    I would recomend it to anybody.

    It's CD music playback is absolutley top notch in my experiaence also. Only problem there is that it is one disk only.

    If you have a widescreen TV then the Tosh delivers a sharper picture than the Sony, but if you have a 4:3 set then the Tosh is not as good at downconversion.

    You'll love it, I've had my 9000 for a couple of years and it's superb. I'm using component connection to my Tosh RPTV now, but previously I used SVideo and thought that was very good, so I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    This one is a no brainer. As good as the Sony is, the Toshiba is an order of magnitude better, hence it stunning reviews at £800 where it betters the bigger 7700 sony. Hunt a bit further and you will find it for £350 multi region, post free.

    I think it is one of the bargin DVD players at the moment. The only down side is no SCART (horrible connector anyway). If you after RGB scart it will not do but I would put the S-Video quality against any Scart (rgb inc). If you want component then you are laughing all the way to the bank. Yes it can be that much better.

    Picture and Sound are only bettered by Tag but equalled by some of the new better £1000 players (Arcam, Toshiba 900 etc).

    The Toshiba 9000 is a smart purchase.

    I changed my Sony 735 for a Pioneer DV737. Awesome as the Sony was the Pioneer is in a different league. Since it's a choice between the Tosh and the Sony then the Tosh is the better one. It still get's great reviews against the Pioneer. Pain about the scarts mind!
