Unreliable

Bryan H., Newegg
28 December 2007
  • Summary: My experience with other Samsung products has been positive which makes this a surprise but I won't be replacing this DVD-R with one of the same brand.
  • Pros: Ease of operation, when it worked.
  • Cons: First problem I had was it wouldn't play some movies so I had it repaired. Second was that it didn't recognize recordable DVDs so I had it repaired again. Now it freezes and jerks through many movies and I'm not under warranty anymore so I'm going to replace it.

Samsung Rocks

Johnathan V., Newegg
12 February 2007
  • Summary: Sleak, Black, and just what the Dr. ordered... A Great Buy.
  • Pros: This unit is just plain fantastic! I purchased this unit to go with my brand new Samsung 5073 HDTV and I am amazed at its simplicity and clarity. The video inputs are ample (although I use the HDMI interface). The onscreen menu display is intelligent and easy to understand and use. I feel like a ...
  • Cons: There are no inputs for recording Tvto DVD other than the included coax (cable) connection on the back of the unit. I would have liked to see component/ composite/ and HDMI inputs on the back so I can hook my dual receiver DVR to it and have it record what I am watching without question.

  • Excerpt: I bought this about a year and a half ago, barely used it and now has great difficulty playing a disc. If you keep opening and closing it, it will eventually play after 20 minutes. Really not worth the effort, time or money.
