Samsung After Sales Service

Mark Harding, Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product in July 2012 as it was recommended by a colleague. I have had to occasions to call Samsung Help Line, one of which was good, the 2nd time was a waste of time!

Poor software performance.

Critical Smurf, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: This new Samsung Freesat HD recorder has been a disappointment, especially when it cost me almost £250. It has developed two faults, one that the box has always had and another that started yesterday. With the former it has repeatedly failed to record single, one off programmes. Series linked ones have been fine but once set to record, when the box goes into standby, all the pre-set single recordings have disappeared from the menu meaning that the only way to record a...
