Toshiba BDX2000

The HD DVD company's first Blu-Ray box

Our test BD Live discs worked fine, and both Blu-ray and DVD playback is excellent - the former includes support for 24p, while the latter can be uspscaled to 1080p if you wish.

However, it’s also one of the slowest of the players we’ve seen. Our standard test involves putting X-Men Origins in the tray, pressing Play and timing how long it takes for the Fox logo to appear. At just under two minutes, it’s hardly speedy – that’s around half the speed of the fastest player in our recent roundup.

Another niggle – common to many players – is that there’s no built in memory for BD Live, so you’ll have to add your own SD card. You can also view images and play music - MP3 and WMA - from a card, which is handy, but though the BDX2000 will play DivX up to version 6 in standard definition, it won’t do so from a memory card. That content, you’ll have to burn to disc.
