ColorStream Pro Component Video Output
It achieves greater color accuracy and high resolution playback capability when connected via the component output to your projector, plasma and/or LCD/CRT televisions.
Progressive Scan
This unit incorporates a progressive scan DVD player, capable of scanning an entire video frame at once; scan-lines commonly associated with interlaced video are drastically reduced. The result is a spectacularly clear image with no motion artifacts (stair-stepping), and details so sharp they seem as if they're etched onto the screen.
192KHz/24-Bit Audio Processing
If you're looking for a DVD player with exquisite audio playback, this player will do the job. It features a digital-to-analog converter capable of processing audio at an incredible 192KHz/24-Bit range.
High-End DVD Outputs
With playback specifications that meet the standards of professionals, it features a component video output for high-resolution low-distortion video playback, and a coaxial digital audio output for high-quality audio playback.
Multi-Format Capability
It offers a full-range of playback capabilities for enjoying movies, music and images. It can playback DVD-Video, DVD-R/W, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, VCD, and MP3/WMA/JPEG image files.
One Touch Recording
It provides a simple and convenient way to make a recording. Simply setup the timer recording within a 24-hour period, and you're ready to record onto a VHS tape with the push of one button.
Convenient Front-Panel Inputs
With front A/V inputs, you can plug your accessories directly into the unit without having to pull it out of your entertainment center and messing with the rear inputs.
Parental Lock
It features parental lock, for parents who want full control of media content played back through player.

      [...]. Easy to set up and operate - even for us seniors. Remote control does everything. Very quiet VHS operation. (VHS has auto rewind - we eject the tape before it kicks in and use our own rewinder). Both VHS and DVD pictures are clean and crisp. We purchased this unit to replace our old VHS, and since it's a combo unit, removed our DVD player. We've had it for a month, have played both VHS tapes and DVDs on it and are very satisfied with it. We've purchased from B&H in the past [...]

      As with the old VCR this replaces, simply pop in a tape and it turns itself on and plays tape. Great for my folks; but they were overwhelmed by all the buttons on the remote, too much, too confusing. Younger people will like all the bells and whistles, but why would young people want a Video Tape player? And you can't record, as there is no digital tuner. Better off with the old separate machines...

          Comments about Toshiba SD-V296 DVD/VCR Combo Player:

          This equipment is very high quality! It was easy to setup. The most advantageous point I discovered is that it doesn't matter whether or not you want to play a VHS video tape or a DVD...the controls on the remote control work exactly the same.
          If your TV service is supplied via broadband or satellite, you can record to VHS very easily.
          VHS tapes are not prehistoric yet...they are actually a quick method to save a broadcast.

          I highly recommend this item!

            We received this DVD/VCR Combo Player by Toshiba in a very timely matter. It was very easy to install. Also it is a very simple player to use. No extra buttons to have to sort out how to use. We are very satisfied with the unit and would purchase one like it again.

                    I bought this videoplayer for my old Sony analog TV, and it is perfect for that purpose. This videoplayer doesn't have a built-in tuner, so you must have an external digital tuner for it, which I have. It is a straightforward product which is easy to install. You can't watch one program and record another one, but you can watch a DVD while you make a recording of a TV broadcast.

                        Needed a good VCR /DVD player for an older extra TV and to also transfer VCR to my Mac via Roxio for digital filing before I lose my tapes. Works well for both. Decent quality for the price. Does what I expected from it.

                            I have a lot of VCR tapes and needed something to replace my other malfunction unit. I still like the idea of being able to record on VCR Tape as it can be used over and over again. With disks you only normally get one chance at recording something and once it is used up, you either keep it that way or throw it away. Waste. Playing some old tapes, the picture and sound is very good. I haven't tried recording yet on the VCR and I haven't played any disks on the disk player but if they work with the same precision, I am going to be very happy.
                            I looked at the hook up procedures that are recommended which for me seemed confusing, so I hooked it up to suit my system. Had no trouble at all with the hook up and it works quite fine.

                              The Player is everything I hoped for: not hard to set up, clear startup instructions (very helpful for this senior citizen), easy operation and excellent performance. Really couldn't ask for more.

                                  I needed a replacement VCR as well as a new DVD player. This was perfect. The price was great and my family is enjoying it. My grandkids are watching movies on the VCR that their parents watched.

                                    This VCR is one of 3 that I use at my home to tape shows. It is easy to use & allows you to watch DVDs while you are taping tv. Often VCRs don't track well on tapes from other VCRs and this one does. I paid $60 more for the last VCR/DVD combo I purchased and this one is so much better!

                                      I bought this with a Elgato Systems USB Analog Video Capture Device so I could transfer my old VHS tapes to a digital format. The VCR worked fantastic. The VCR looks nice and was very easy to set up and use. Buying both the VCR and the Elgato Capture Device saved me a lot of money as opposed to having the tapes digitized out in town.
