Summary: Most frustrating for me was finding out this bargain dvd player does not accept all blu ray formats. Would have been nice to know that before purchasing it. So, essentially, I have a brand new dvd player that works fifty percent of the time.
Summary: I bought this after reading some favorable reviews and that it had optical audio output. However after playing about five discs it stopped working. It now just says no disc every time I load any type of disc. The image was nice while it worked, skipping was a problem. I no longer have the receipt, since I bought it from circuit city. However if you read the many reviews on the internet and scroll through them you will see mine is a common problem.
Summary: Bought this item and found that it does not support Dual Layer Discs that you burn. In this day and age to come out with a player that does not support all formats is just nuts. The player has been returned and I have ordered the Sony.
Extremely frustrating auto reset features and glitches

Summary: This dvd player was cheap and I got what I paid for, I guess. The player has several annoying issues as follows: - When watching TV shows on dvd, the aspect ratio keeps auto changing to widescreen even while watching the shows non stop. You cannot save the menu settings you are currently watching. - When you change channels and return to the dvd, aspect ratio and HDMI resolution often change automatically and you have to go to the player menu to redefine what you want.
Summary: the setting for audio out is bitstream for a home theater, but when turning player off and on the setting reverts to PCS. called samsung, got bumped 3 times, says it should work, i must have a memory problem on my brand new unit.
Summary: I was very happy when i first got this player, it looks good and was pretty easy to set up. Then i used it. it seems that the up sampling feature only works in the HDMI mode, and can NOT be enabled for component output(as per samsungs tech support). So if you are not planning on using HDMI, you might as well just buy any progressive sacn DVD play for $30. Again, the player will not output 720p on its component output even though the connection supports it.
Nice look & feel, but quickly disappointed with compatibility & options
25 October 2007
Summary: Review in one sentence: I returned the player to the store. Pros: Nice look & feel, good 480p video Cons: Not compatible with Westinghouse 32" LCD HD-ready TV, only three fwd speeds (2x, 4x, 64x), slow seek, very bright blue power button, limited front panel, firmware upgrade process is buggy Untested: audio quality and audio/mp3 CDs, Divx, JPG Hardware Build: 2007.08 The DVD-1080p7 was connected via HDMI cable to my Westinghouse 32" LCD TV (model LTV-32w1).
Summary: The player I received was defective and I am currently in the process of getting another one. It would lock-up and the only way to reset it was to turn the power off at the power strip or unplug it. The power button or eject button would not work when it locked up. My audio and video settings would not retain in memory. Every time I powered off, my settings would default to the factory settings. When it does work, the picture and audio are great.
Summary: I received the player in 2 days , hooked it up and discovered the loading gate would not work , therefore I could not use it.Amazon had me return it and send me a replacement within a couple of days. The new player works exellent and does every thing it is supposed to do , I certainly appreciate Amazons fast response on this.
Summary: I just bought a brand new 52" LCD capable of 1080P and grabbed this DVD player to go with it, man am I sorry... The picture quality on this is horrible. I've tried to tweak every possible setting on the DVD player but it is very noisy/grainy. I'm not impressed at all and plan on bringing the DVD player back to Fry's tomorrow.
