  • Excerpt: I knew DVD was going to be big years ago, when my Dad came back from Japan babbling about the new format.."same size as CD's but with MPEG-2 movies". Since he works in broadcasting I understood his excitement, and could see the potential. Sick of the VHS video tape standard (crap colours, crap soundtrack, limited lifespan) I looked forward to DVD.
  • Cons: "Remote a bit plastic"

  • Excerpt: This player is/was the best selling DVD player in the UK, and rightly so. With a low price it falls into the budget DVD player catagory, however it really doesnt deserve that, as many people may consider it not to be as good as as £300 players, whereas in some cases, it is. The player comes in a nice silver/champagne colour and it has 6 buttons on the face on the player:Power, Eject, Play, Stop, and Skip forward and back functions.

  • Excerpt: I'm a big gadget fan, and enjoy movies and surround sound, so a DVD player was an obvious purchase to make. At £299 the Samsung DVD-709 was the cheapest DVD player on the market at the time I bought it, though since then cheaper models are available. However, in terms of quality the DVD-709 is unbeatable for the price.

  • Excerpt: I had already been introduced to the joys of DVD through owning a DVD-ROM drive on my PC, but really wanted to get a DVD player so I could watch films on a normal TV. Unfortunately the TVs I have available to me are a bit on the old side (verging on ancient in some cases!), without the required sockets. The solution to this was to get a Samsung 709, which can be hooked up to an old TV through a VCR.

  • Excerpt: one of the most user friendly players out there. a doddle to use and a pleasure to watch. on of the big advantages is its easy hackable to region 1 with the well known aiwa hack. it has had a few problems with disks not playing but touch wood its all sorted now and this is definetly the machine to look out for. grab one now while they are still some about.

  • Excerpt: You can pick up a Samsung 709 DVD player for as little as £149 now, but this price shouldn?t deceive you into thinking it?s a cheap machine that won?t be much good. Firstly there?s its looks - a brushed metal look that, whilst won?t be to everyone?s taste, belies its price. It would look superb sitting under a TV in even the most style conscious home. As well as quality looks, it also has a quality feel about it.
