    I can't decide on what portable dvd player to get. The two choices that I have are:
    1. Samsung DVD-L300 ($699.99)
    2. Toshiba SD-P2600 ($599.99)
    Please help choose which one and why.

    Recently, I bought and tried out both the Toshiba SD-P2600 and Samsung DVD-L300 to see which one was better. I did not like both of them.
    I did not like the Samsung DVD-L300 because:
    1. It freezed up abut 5 times while watching different movies.
    2. It showed jagged edges in movies
    3. Awful placement of buttons on the unit.

    I did not like the Toshiba SD-P2600 because:
    1. The chroma bug is very noticeable
    2. I did not like the screen, because it has a limited viewing angle, parts of the image quality became negative like, when tilting the screen.
    3. Picture quality has a blue tint to it.

    I returned both and ordered the Panasonic DVD-LX9 Portable DVD Player for $689.99.
