    As you are probably aware the price of Blue-ray players have really come down over the last year. The Toshiba BDX-1100 is an impressive entry level Blu-ray DVD Player with great performance and features not normally found on players in this price range.

    The Toshiba BDX-1100 is a stylish Blu-ray DVD Disc player which does everything you want a basic Blu-ray player to do. It plays the most popular video formats BD-ROM, DVD, BD-R, BD-RE, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R, CD, CD-RW, AVCHD and CD-DA. It automatically Up Converts non 1080P formats to 1080P with good clarity. It provides support for MP3 audio playback in two channel stereo and has built in surround sound decoders for Dolby Digital, Dolby True HD and Dolby Digital plus, DTS and DTS HD.

    In addition to all the “Basics” the BDX-1100 has a built in SD Card Reader/Writer/Viewer which will allow you to view AVCHD, digital camera movie files and Jpeg digital camera picture files easily on your TV making your TV an entertainment HUB for not only DVD’s and Blu-rays but pictures and Home-made movies too.

    The Toshiba BDX1100 does not support 3D (three dimension video decoding) or WMA (Windows Media Audio Files), and while it does have an ethernet jack for extra content found on BD-Live Discs, it does not support video streaming services such as NetFlix, Wi-Fi or Wireless Streaming.

    While Toshiba packed a lot of features and value into their entry level DVD player one feature they didn’t focus on is the remote. The remote buttons are small and not very well labelled. The layout is confusing and not at all intuitive. The keys are luminous and glow in the dark but we would have definitely preferred a better keypad layout with larger back lit keys. We often use Logitech Harmony Universal Programmable Remote Control in our installations an therefore the factory supplied remotes are often left in the box and never used with our custom installations however if your a heavy DVD watcher you will certainly find the keypad layout annoying.

    Lastly the processor in the Toshiba BDX-1100 is slower than that found on higher models. Blu-ray DVD’s with lots of java script on them can be slow to initially load. We found our PS3 loaded the same blu-ray DVD’s quicker than the Toshiba DBX-1100.

    Summary:
    The Toshiba BDX-1100 is a great entry level blu-ray DVD player with full 1080P support and up converstion, SD memory card slot and HDMI 1.3 output. If your are a moderate blu-ray user who is looking for a stylish player to watch an occasional blu-ray DVD then the Toshiba DBX-1100 blu-ray player maybe just the ticket for you. With the added functionality of an SD Card slot and support for AVCHD files and built in jpeg picture viewer this player has a great feature set found usually on players costing twice as much.

    If on the other hand you are a heavy DVD viewer and require support for 3D, WMA, Streaming internet services like NetFlix then the Toshiba DBX-1100 is not the blu-ray player for you.
