  • Pros: This DVD player will help you take advantage of your HD TV. The player up converts your image to either 720p or 1080i. Personally, I prefer the 720p especially if you are watching something that is visually fast paced. Setup was a breeze, 6 foot HDMI cable included. Just plug it in and your ready...

  • Summary: If it wasn't for the firmware I would give this DVD player a 8 or 9 out of 10. The picture quality on my Samsung LE32R41BD is fantastic but in everyday use the player is badly let down by a couple of things that could have so easily been avoided.
  • Pros: Picture quality on 32" LCD via HDMI
  • Cons: RW/FF scan speeds of 2x, 4x, 8x and 64x and no 'Auto resume' very annoying

  • Summary: Good price, but the fast forward/reverse scanning features are really very, very poor. Samsung appear to know this as they've provided a set of 'jump forward and back 10 seconds' type buttons which quite frankly you will use repeatedy over and over instead of the usual high-speed scan functions.
  • Pros: Good price and compatibility (includes an HDMI cable for free in some countries)
  • Cons: Rubbish search speeds that increment at 2x,4x, 8x and 64x and all except 2x don't actually show anything like the video at the point the time marker displays
