Summary: I'll be brief. This unit is a piece if junk. It lasted less than a year. I read the reviews which were not that good and still bought thinking I know better then most of the people... Big mistake. The DVD player looks fantastic and I thought it would be a great addition to my media room. Fancy, futuristic look and pretty compact. Just what I needed! The DVD stopped working after few months. Trust me, don't do it!
Summary: I purchased this DVD player, and it stopped working within first 4 months. I find it hard to believe that Samsung would put their name on such a horrible product. Based on the other reviews, this is not an isolated case. I would not recommend this DVD to anyone.
Summary: I bought this as a compact, portable DVD player to take with me to Iraq. I had my wife ship it along with some other things and it made the trip without a hitch. Used it for the entire year, even with a lot of dust from the environment and tons of usage,(I did keep it clean with dust off and wiping it down often) this thing worked flawlessly. It was shipped back to the US with the rest of our military equipment and let me say, that can be a very rough ride.
Summary: I purchased the DVD because of its compact size, and HDMI port. In addition, it integrates with my Samsung LCD TV Remote. However, after one year the DVD stopped working. I have read all the reviews here and have the same problem. I have had several DVD players for years and have never had any problems. This product should have been recalled, or SAMSUNG should have offered to repair free of charge.
Do Not Buy--unit will fail to play DVDs in a short time

3 October 2009
Summary: The favorable reviews of this item were written after only a short time of use. I have had the unit for 9 months and it has failed twice. It was purchased along with a Samsung LCD TV at a discount, but it was not worth the $50 I paid. The first time it failed was about four months after I purchased it. The unit would not spin a DVD. It was "repaired" under warranty (be sure to send in the registration or the warranty period will be shorter than the time to failure).
Summary: I bought this unit without doing much reseach due to a deal when buying a Samsung TV. The TV is outstanding the DVD player not so much. The unit stopped reading disks and would just boot to the splash screen after 3 weeks. This was after the date I could get my money back from the store so was only able to swap out for a new one. We proceeded to swap the next three units. The 5th one is now intermittently reading disks.
Pros: Size, Style
Cons: Touch sensitive buttons, reading disks, working
Summary: Girlfriend and I bought two tv's, and two of these DVD players with the discount. Both DVD plays failed within three months. Read the reviews online, this model is a lemon. It's a crime that Samsung wont refund our money!
Summary: Reading other reviews here, I feel comparatively lucky to have gotten 11 months of service out of this little player before it suddenly gave up the ghost. I'd be willing to spend more next time if I thought that would really make a difference, but I see mixed reviews even on much costlier DVD players. What's a consumer to do?
Summary: Same story as everyone else. Player stopped working after 6 months. Can't even turn the power on now. I liked how it looked, but definitely all form over function. Can't say I have ever had an electronic device that failed this quickly.
