Toshiba-BDX2500-reviewed.gifHigh Points
• The BDX2500 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs.

• The player has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources, and it has multichannel analog audio outputs for use with older A/V receivers.
• It supports BD-Live Web content and can play picture-in-picture bonus content.
• This player can access video-on-demand services from VUDUNetflix and Blockbuster VOD.
• The SD card slot and USB port allow for easy playback of digital media files.

Low Points
• The BDX2500 lacks internal memory for BD-Live content. 
• It also lacks built-in WiFi, but you can purchase an optional USB adapter.
• This model does not support DLNA media streaming.
• There's no advanced control port like RS-232.
• The BDX2500 is not 3D-capable.

Conclusion
Toshiba may have entered the Blu-ray game a bit later than other manufacturers, but the company has gained ground quickly with its second-generation lineup. The BDX2500 is a well-adorned Blu-ray player offered at a very competitive price. This is one of the better deals you'll find for a player with multichannel analog audio outputs, which makes it a good choice for people who own older, non-HDMI-equipped A/V receivers. The Web platform doesn't include quite as many services as some competitors, but desirable video-on-demand options like Netflix, Blockbuster and VUDU are all here.
