My parents just upgraded there TV from a 1979 JC Penney (RCA manu?) 25 inch console to a new Toshiba 24 inch flat screen. But even without DVD, they are astounded w/the improvement in picture quality! (I know, but they think anything over 25 inches is too big : LOL.) They are VCR less since there VCR broke down (they have quite a few VHS tapes.) and have never had a DVD player, so today as a b-day gift for my dad, I picked up the Toshiba SD-V291 DVD/VCR combo player for a good deal at BB...since he would not want 2 seperate units. Looked solidly built for its price, well as a good name brand. No reviews on audioreview.com nor could I find any on the net. Anyone out there used this unit? Thoughts please. Thanks!
