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: 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: I have had bad luck with Samsung products. Hopefully the RMA one is better and I plan not to buy another Samsung product again. I have had three defective TVs from Samsung and this is my second DVD player. Samsung keeps replacing my TV so I can not complain about service.
Pros: Adjusts Widescreen to fit my 46" LCD. 1080 upconversion looked, good overall. Easy to use.
Cons: This product was defective. During movie play the image would go black but audio was still present. I had to switch between HDMI modes to get the image to come back. Not happy.
