The last Toshiba portable DVD player we looked at--the SD-P71S--didn't do enough to impress us. Its file playback was limited to just JPEG, MP3, and WMA files, and we were less than pleased with its picture quality. With the SDP93S, Toshiba has redesigned its portable DVD player, and for the better.
The SDP93S has a very modern, smooth white plastic encasing with a black frame surrounding the screen. Among the recent players we've tested, it's by far the best-looking design out there. Weighing about 2.4 pounds, it's not the lightest player we've seen, but you shouldn't have any issues bringing it around with you.
The impressive 9-inch screen bests most of the players we've seen recently, with most of the help coming from the high-resolution 800x480-pixel screen. The screen itself can swivel around and fold back on the base of the player in order to become a handheld device.
DVD playback functionality is spread evenly across the bottom of the screen, giving you access to most of the player's options. We definitely preferred this layout over the Sony DVP-FX930 touch buttons. The included remote has a nice design; we just wish it were tinier.
