Do not buy

Mr. Nick Cole, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: This is the most useless piece of consumer electronics I have bought. The main issue is that the sound and video end up out of sync which is kind of fundamental. Samsung exchanged it for another but that is just as bad. Now thinking about binning it and buying a replacement - not from Samsung.

Not bad at all

  • Summary: This camcorder isn't movie quility it doesn't have super sound however it works well, the picture is great, burns mini dvd's and finalises them ready to watch on your dvd players, or to put on to your computer. Value for money is pretty good.

Doesn't connect to a computer!

Grockle, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: The camera records and does what it's supposed to just fine but it doesn't come with a cable to connect it to a computer. You can't put the disk in and copy across because half the stuff on your camera goes missing! It has a tv connecter but if you want to edit it or show it using a computer you can't. Also, when i put the disks in i have to format them, fine.

Well it's not THE best.....

S. Goodings "Bob Curby", Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: It's not the best digicam with mini-DVD functionality, but if you want the best, pay £500+. I found it did everything it claimed to and more than I expected. Picture quality was excellent, even freeze frame was good. Snap shots were only 800x600 so only good for on screen vieweing on a PC - but if you want a STILL camera, don't buy this is, it's only an added feature - but as a VIDEO camera, the lens quality is ACE and the zoom very stable.

Doesn't do what it says on the tin !

Arthur Dooley, Amazon
15 October 2008
  • Summary: I had to give up with this little machine. Although it appeared to work fine,recording on to mini dvd's, there was the slight complication that the discs would not play back ! I believe that the problem may have been that there was a fault and the camcorder was not finalising discs,even though it indicated that it had. The discs just would not play back in any machine or computer.

Does the job.

Alan Partridge "Back of the net!", Amazon
21 June 2008
  • Summary: When the camcorder arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how small and lightweight it is. It is extremely simple to use although the battery life is terrible - about an hour. The zoom is good but the image shakes a lot when you have it on maximum zoom. The lens cover doesn't come attached with a string so I lost that on the day I got it. The sound quality is fairly good but you can't really hear it if you play it back on the camcorder rather than a tv or laptop.

Great camcorder by Samsung

  • Excerpt: "The Samsung VP DC171W is one of many camcorders released by Samsung, which records directly onto a DVD disk. Being a Samsung device you know you are going to get a great and compact camcorder for a good price. With a width of 5.4 cm, a depth of 12.1 cm, a height of 8.7 cm and a weight of 360 g, you can see that you are getting a compact camera, which as a matter of fact is very light weight and in the process is portable. The sheer size of this ...
  • Pros: Compact/light - weight, good range of features
