Award Quote: " 'Sharp' mode offers incredibly detailed pictures: naturally vibrant colours, smooth, stable motion, nice styling." - What Hi Fi? Sound And Vision November 2008, Five Stars

Also 4% Quidco.

Next cheapest seems to be John Lewis at £70.

Seems to get good reviews. Appears from user reviews to be most popular with people who have a HDTV, but have a big DVD collection and don't want to switch to Blu-Ray just yet.

Only major problem seems to issue with playing older DVDs of TV shows recorded in 4:3 format. HD buffs seem delighted with the upscale quality in the user reviews.

Description:
The XDE500 is equipped with new XDE technology, upscaling to clearer images with richer, more vibrant colours and contrast. Its 3 modes produce sharpened images, improved colour balance and develops the contrast in dark areas while maintaining the darkness in others. The XD-E500 converts a standard DVD to 1080p for optimum picture quality, while the Dolby Digital Surround Sound technology provides enhanced true to life audio for the full home cinema experience. This multi-purpose Toshiba system also enables you to listen to your favourite MP3 tracks or view all of your digital camera images in true resolution on your TV screen. DivX, MP3, JPEG, DVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, CD/CD-R/-RW, VIDEO-CD, SVCD, CD-DA compatible.

What happens??



It can’t automatically letterbox 4:3 full-screen video, so it only plays it in screen-filling stretch mode. There are apparently some ways to work around this by adjusting your TV display manually, but some reviewers who obviously watch a lot of old TV series seem to get annoyed doing this everytime!
