Summary: Before I bought this player I asked alot of question about up progressing DVD players at a couple of the big box stores, mostly about the fact that you see alot of reviews saying that they could tell no difference and had returned the product. Every salesman I talked to said the same thing..
Pros: If you have a 1080p this is the only way to go unless you are ready to make the gamble to blu ray or hd dvd. But even then the picture quality is right there with thoses players. It includes an HDMI so that saves you 40 bucks also. Every thing about it is top notch!
Cons: The few complaints I have heard from people that are legit are really picky. Yes I guess it does have a little longer load time than a standard player...but I would have never even noticed had it been brought up. And as far as the optical cable coming unhooked eaisly...hasnt happend to me so mayb...
Summary: Made the mistake of buying when first released should have waited for others reviews. There seems to be some good dvd-hd960's out there I just didn't get one!
Pros: Nice blue light.
Cons: Has not worked corectly since I hooked it up. Went back once for warranty repair and is going back again. HDMI cable that came with it died.Also own a Samsung DVD VR345 recorder that ups to 1080i and it outperforms this unit. Samsung should recall these.
Summary: This is a great player if you're looking for something in between until a new standard is decided upon. Picture quality is great, the colors are vivid and images are crisp at 1080p. Menus and remote is easy to use and the instant replay/skip buttons are a nice touch.
Pros: -Upconversion to 1080p -HDMI cable included
Cons: -Load time is a bit slow -Optical cable does not secure well
Summary: I was a bit nervous about this player after reading some of the other reviews, but I have to say that I have experienced none of the problems the other reviewers mentioned. The player loads DVD's quickly and is effortless to setup and looks great right out of the box.
Pros: Great DVD Player. Very Sharp Image quality. Be sure to enable 1080p in the set up menu and turn progressive scan off if you're using the HDMI cable and on if your using the Components. Looks great on Samsung DLP Tv's. Handles my Dual Layer copies perfectly.
Cons: none so far. It looks every bit as good as my friend's PS3 with blue ray discs.
Summary: I would not recommend this DVD Player to anybody who plays any sort of burned media. While the video quality is nice, (when it works), the control system is horrible and quite disappointing.
Pros: The physical DVD player looks nice. Comes with HDMI-cable.
Cons: This is perhaps the most finicky DVD player I've ever owned when it comes to burned discs. It will try loading them for a minute sometimes, and then say that they are dirty and cannot be played. These discs work in any other DVD player I've ever used, (I've tried different media, different speeds...
Summary: Online reviews suggest that this is a great product, and I hope the RMA works perfectly! I'm sure Newegg will take care of me.
Pros: Ergonomic / aesthetic design is excellent, as are all current products in the Samsung range.
Cons: Whilst this worked "OK" with the component out, HDMI output (to a new Samsung LN-S4092D LCD) was horrific - excessive motion blur, color banding, blockiness. Tested with multiple DVDs. Assuming this is a defective unit, per a call I made to Samsung tech support.
Summary: This player has been nothing but a headache, and I've only got to watch 2 movies on it!
Pros: Its really light and doesn't cost much to ship it back to the manufacturer each time it breaks.
Cons: I had this player one day and the HDMI playback started to stutter and black out.I sent it to Samsung because this model is not refundable through Newegg.I got it back from Samsungs repair place, watched one DVD on it,then shut it off. Now the player wont even turn on.I called Samsung once again ...
