Excerpt: I purchased this player because foolishly I bought DVDs on the German economy fully expecting them to work on my US PS3. This player works well for its intention which was to use its region free capabilities to play my new region coded DVDs. The video quality is not the best, but that's because I am now use to HDMI. All around, for a cheap fix to playing region coded DVDs; I would definitely recommend this player.
Pros: Compact, Consistent Performance, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
Summary: I am a frequent Amazon customer and I also have several Samsung products, which I consider of very good quality. This time, I made a big, big mistake, because this CD-DVD player is useless. I have spent many hours trying to play different CD's, DVD's and it does not work. I don't know if put it in the garbage can, because I took all the CD's and DVD's to my home and I load them in my other Samsung CD/DVD player and they played perfect.
Summary: Speakers and receivers have more affect on picture and sound quality for CDs and DVDs. So why spend too much for a Player? For under $30, including shipping, this little beauty was delivered in three days and set up in three minutes. Sits on top of my receiver without covering much of the air vents and performs flawlessly.
Excerpt: I bought this product to play all region DVD's. This player works Great for all CD-DVD's that i have from Europe and India. The remote control is small size around 8 Cm's in lenght and less than 4 cms wide. I can still oprate it, so no problem for me.
Summary: DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT! FIND ANOTHER BRAND! I bought this unit for two reasons-1 its ability to connect to a non-HDMI older model TV. 2-to watch WMV's and MP4 movies. The other functions (DVD, CD, MP3, JPEG) seemed to work ok-but that's NOT what I needed this unit for. Despite the fact that the Samsung website says the unit supports playback for WMV's and MP4, the unit refused to play them.
Pros: Inexpensive, connects to older model tv's, simple to set up and operate, relatively inexpensive
Cons: Did not meet expectations, doesnt play mp4 or wmv, light flimsy-poor quality, no website support for this product., need a magnifying glass to read manual, manual instructions incomplete

Outrageously loud and slow - order the SONY DVPSR510H instead! Totally worth the $10!

Summary: We ordered this a couple of months ago and the best thing that ever happened to me was when my daughter broke it. This thing makes some kind of loud white noise that caused us to have to crank the volume, and that continued even after the movie was over - I've seen it mentioned in other reviews. The noise drove me nuts!!! And it also took FOREVER to turn on and to open the DVD deck, as in, you'll constantly be wondering whether you should try pressing the button again.
Summary: Totally satisfied with the functioning of this fine unit. Even though it isn't BluRay and doesn't record to the best of my knowledge, for ease of use and the ability to turn off saving power and returning to where you left off this product is a gem for the price. Thank you.
