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
Excerpt: I have now had this DVD player since christmas, i thought i might as well buy one as i was also getting one of the HDTV's also from Samsung. The advantages of this DVD player are as follows: 1.
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
Excerpt: As I mentioned in my previous review of my Samsung 32 " LCD TV I also attained this DVD player at the same time. Here is my impression of this DVD player however be warned like my LCD TV review I will not be explaining every technical detail this TV has to offer rather I'll be looking at how it...
Pros: Improves picture quality, reasonable price
Cons: Quite big, will probably be replaced by better models in the future
Excerpt: The DVD -HD850 is designed for users who want to maximise their HD displays with their existing DVD collections, it employs a digital process that upgrades the standard DVD resolution to high-definition resolution with 1080i, 720p, and 768p signals.
Summary: E' in grado di riprodurre i CD con files DivX ,e più filmati Divx video masterizzati su un comune DVD. Compatto ed elegante Purtroppo ogni tanto non legge chiaramente i filmati in dvx. e non possiede i codec + recenti. Utile anche per leggere mp3 e immagini Kodac o normali Jpeg.
