Summary: I got mine for free as a combo deal with Samsung's 50" 1080p plasma TV, so I can't complain too much. Standard DVD movies look pretty good on my TV now. Make sure to use the ez-view/zoom features to make movies fit your screen if you're worried about screen burn-in.
Pros: It does a pretty good job of upscaling standard DVD movies to 1080p. It is a rather simple/plain device, but it does what it is advertised to do.
Cons: As others have mentioned, it did not include an HDMI cable, so I had to spend another $30 for a 6ft cable. I'm sure that HD-DVD or Blu-Ray looks better, but I don't want to tread those waters yet.
Excerpt: If you want a HD DVD player this isn't the one to get, although there isn't really anything wrong with it it just isn't all that great. I looks lovely and matches the current range of samsung LCD TV's so you can co-ordinate you entertainment system if you currently own a Samsung TV.
Excerpt: At this price range it offers a much bigger satisfactory level for the consumer...!to some it may look too polished/shiny(jet black) but a sleek design with a blue light "power on" indicator..maybe too bright yet nice!..
Excerpt: This DVD player is the one that i have in my lounge and is a great one in my eyes and i think i will have it for years to come. It goes very well with my sony LCD HDready television and was very easy to set up and also very quick.
Excerpt: Great DVD player. Plays mpeg/avi files straight from data CD/DVDs. Sound quality and video quality both well above average for the price. The palyer is so simple to install - 3 mins from out of the box to up and running.
Summary: Das Gerät arbeitet wunderbar mit meinem Samsung HD-TV zusammen (Aynet). Zwar zickt es bei den Spracheinstellungen rum und man wenn man es vom Strom trennt wird es resetet, auch könnte das Menü schneller reagieren, die Bildqualität stimmt aber.
