Toshiba BDX2550KB – Smart Blu-ray & DVD Player – Value for money

I love this dvd player, it has everything you could need and it’s really small. My only issue is that after a few months, it automatically updates and you loose some of your video apps which i haven’t been able to find a way to re-download them. I’m on my second one in less than a year and it has just done the same thing. So i’ve just lost my youtube and netflix app on it. I tried restoring it, and now it won’t even open the portal. It just displays an error message. Looks like it’s on it’s way back for another replacement.

A superb quality player let down only by the ridiculous limitations of internet connection. The quality of picture is amazing from this player. It’s easy to set up, can be done in seconds. Come to internet connection and your in a world of pain. You need a wired connection, so either set this up next to your router or buy one of those extender plugs with an ethernet socket. I have an asusasus rp-ac52 dual-band wireless-ac750 range extender (ieee 802. 11 a/b/g/n/ac) with signal indicator and one-touch blue led light and it took 90mins to set this up. It took me to the edge of patience and beyond. The ‘wizard’ took about 4 times to complete successfully, and by successfully i mean it froze on the last step at 99% and i gave up, turned it off and when i turned it back on again found it had actually completed.

Exactly as advertised, does the job well. Good value, good delivery times.

Much better that i thought it would be. The seller was very helpful.

Very versatile machine at this price.

Super compact player, easy set up, no problems.

So far so good with it, but have only had it a few days.

I have owned a couple of toshiba dvd/blu ray players and this, like the others doesn’t disappoint. Easy to set up, use and excellent quality picture from blu-ray dvd’s. This is a ‘smart’ blu-ray and includes some smart features including netflix (acct needed), you tube etc although the network connection is ethernet wired and not wi-fi. Good build quality and comprehensive remote control.

Seems to work well so far and at an excellent price.

Slimline, looks good and easy to set up.

Early days but no problems or issues to report so far.

Goodit’s better than the old dvd player i replaced it with. Blu rays display content very quickly with no lag on menus. The hdmi connection is fully functional so the player turns off when the tv is turned off, the tv turns on when it gets a signal down the hdmi which is handy. Badit’s the only ‘smart’ anything that can’t play divx. It randomly won’t even see perfectly valid file types from a dlna server (h. 264 video, mp4 audio, 1080p/720p resolution video in an. M4v wrapper) yet will play them back perfectly fine remotely if used as a dnla target from another device. (as in: – run a dnla on your computer and this won’t see all the files but a dlna client app on a phone or other device will.

Easy to set up simple to play what more do i need ,great.

Prompt delivery and works perfectly.

Very pleased with my purchase. The price was reasonable, and it does everything i want it to.

Only down side is it needs a cable for internet (akward in my house), i assume the next modle up might have wi-fi built in.

I would have preferred getting instructions with it.

Bought 2 of these machines 1 for niece 1 for mum both great.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • You get way you pay for!
  • Five Stars
  • It does as it stated in advert

Needed a player to play both bluray and dvd. Has the advantage of a usb socket on the front of the machine.

Very good picture even improves normal dvds. Not been able to connect it to the internet yet,.

But it might do more, if it had full instructions- cost wise it ‘s good.
