Review Summary

The Samsung DVD 1080P7 is a single-disc, mainstream DVD player. Compared to other mainstream DVD players on the market, it is very inexpensive and worth buying. Considering its very inexpensive price, this DVD player comes with great features for the money. This DVD player is fitted with a progressive scanning feature, capable of delivering higher-quality video images to compatible televisions. Capable of playing multiple types of recordable and rewritable discs, this unit can handle more types of media that most DVD players. The Samsung DVD 1080P7 is relatively slim at a height of 1.8 in. It has multi-brand compatibility. Like most other DVD players, this unit features JPEG playback, which allows you to view digital photos (stored on a CD) on your television. The player is connected to the TV via an HDMI cable and produces an excellent picture. It has the option to upconvert to 720P, 1080i, and 1080P. With the player set at 1080P you can see a real difference; stunningly sound. It also plays. MP3 files, and it has its own on screen menu for both JPEG and MP3. You can set the player to run in a slideshow mode so you can have pictures playing in the background on your TV. The Samsung DVD 1080P7 is a mainstream DVD player, perfect for watching movies and or listening to music. Another plus point for this DVD is that its remote can control other A/V gear. The negative points are its display which displays the cumulative time, and not the current track that is playing. And no HDMI cable, no USB Input which even cheaper models, such as Phillips has. Nevertheless this DVD player is definitely worth the money. If you are looking for a DVD player to provide you with upconversion and not expensive, then this is what you need.
