Toshiba has announced ten new DVD models, including five standalone DVD players, three DVD recorders (two with hard drives), and even two with VCRs built-in, for those of you still attached to tape.

Three standard DVD players — the SD-180E, SD-185E, and SD-280E — offer usual functionality you’d expect, including JPEG viewing, DivX playback, and MP3 support.

Taking a step up, the SD-480E and SD-580E offer upscaling of standard DVDs to 1080p high definition, feature HDMI outputs to connect to a suitable TV, and have Toshiba’s REGZA-Link which synchronises compatible equipment using a single remote control unit.

Moving up to DVD recorders, the DR18T, RD-88DT and RD-98DT all feature direct-to-DVD recording of TV from the built-in analogue and digital tuners, The DR18T doesn’t have a hard drive, but the RD-88DT has a 160GB drive, and the RD-98DT a 250GB one.

They all feature 1080p upscaling, REGZA-Link, HDMI output, and DivX playback, while the two top models also feature a DV input for connecting up a digital camcorder.

Finally, the D-VR18DT and D-XV48DT feature similar recording specifications to the DVD recorders (one comes with a 160GB hard drive), but also feature a built-in VCR. To add to legacy support, the RD-XV48DT also supports VCD and SVCD.

More details on exact availability and pricing to follow.

  • Its to bad that Toshiba lost out on the race to be the next hi-def dvd player. The cost was much lower than the competition. Unfortunately, I bought one of their hi-def players, darn it. LOL wart removal home remedies
