Summary: This at first seemed amazing but then the problems started. I chalked it up to dirty DVD's or the quality of them. Since I came to the conclusion it is entirely the player. This player would stop in the middle of a movie or just stop altogether. The picture quality was great.
Summary: Had this dvd player for a year now. Of course nothing can be done because the warrenty is up. Played beautifully at first then after about 7 months I noticed a grinding sound when I put in some dvd's. Didn't matter what kind it just happened at random.
Summary: Not a bad player if you don't intend to play standard DVDs.
Pros: Plays Blu-ray discs with no problems.
Cons: Audio drops out for about a half-second every few minutes when playing standard DVDs. The drops generally occur around chapter boundaries. Firmware updates have so far failed to fix the problem. Samsung support is worse than useless.
Summary: Audio drops out for half a second intermittently when watching a normal DVD. Upgrading to the latest firmware doesn't help. Samsung support is terrible. Buy this player only if you don't plan on watching standard DVDs.
DTS Audio drops on each chapter change when playing a standard DVD

Summary: The DTS Audio drops on each chapter change when playing a standard DVD encoded with DTS through a Pioneer VSX-33 receiver. I'm not skipping chapters with the remote; the sound drops during playback. I spoke with Samsung tier two support and she claims the fault is with my receiver.
Summary: made in china. mine lasted for 3 days. sent it back to samsung and they claimed to have repaired and returned. was exactly the same problem as when i sent it back. customer service department worse than poor and absolutely unhelpful. am waiting for a replacement and have been for more than a week.
Summary: November 20, 2010 I had ordered a "New" device. The one that arrived was not in its original packaging with innumerable scratches on the surface. The remote, batteries and cords were all bundled up loosely into a single sheath. Sending it back. Pretty disappointed.
