The Toshiba SD-V296 is a mid-grade DVD player and VCR combo designed as Toshiba claims to "provide the combined picture quality of a progressive scan DVD player and the convenient recording and playback options of a VCR". More specifically the SD-V296 is designed with simple features to offer a cheaper solution for consumers looking at high-definition DVD playback and VCR playback support. The SD-V296 features full progressive scan DVD support through the ColorStream Pro component video out.

The Toshiba SD-V296 also includes additional features not mentioned above, such as 3-D virtual surround support, JPEG digital photo viewing support, DVD+-R, +-RW support, a one touch recording option, an integrated 24-bit/192KHz digital to analog audio converter, full WMA and MP3 file format playback support, menu multi-language options, standard fast forward, scan, and slow motion functions, and DivX file support.

The only real difference between the SD-V296 and its earlier version predecessor the SD-V295 is the slim design of the newer model; Toshiba was going for a much more compact body design in the V296 model.
