    Anyone else still using a Toshiba SD-5109? I've had one for about 1.5 years now and I still love it.

    I'm wondering if anyone else have ever found a difference between the 4:3 and 4:3LB (Letter Box) screen modes?

    I still haven't been able to..

    I'm still using mine and I got it when it first came out.

    If using a 4X3 set there is no difference between the letterbox and 16X9 setting.

    As much as I like it, I'm thinking of moving on, possibly to a Panasonic RP56. I've noticed the picture is quite a bit smoother (on a projector).

    I have been using one since they were released to US market and still love it. I have mine connected to a widescreen RPTV, so I never used the 4:3 modes.

    I too have one and have had no problems with it since I got it 1.5 years ago. I might move up to a newer model sometime this year but I will most likely keep the 5109 and put it in the bedroom. Its a great player.

    I too have been using one since they first were available. I keep thinking about upgrading but nothing has compelled me to upgrade yet. I have thought about the Panny 91 but I keep waiting for something just a wee bit better.

    I am prepared to wait just a wee a bit.

    I have had the 5109 since it was first introduced..It was the first progressive player released in the U.S...It is an excellent player and never gave me any problems..I just ordered the RP91 and will have it Saturday....I used a demo RP91 at home for about a week before I made my final decision to go with it.....There have been definate improvements in the deinterlacing chips since the 5109 which is evident with the RP91, but again the 5109 is a great player....

    I'm still using mine. I should get the firmware upgraded, but the thing is in daily use. I have been thinking about getting an all region player like the Malata, but finances don't allow it at present. No real complaints with the 5109 other than it not recognising discs left in tray 1 after removing discs in tray 2 sometimes.

    Does the SD-5109 do 3:2 pulldown too?
