We had one of these come with my 42" for free and for something that was free we got some surprising results. Once we installed it into our cabinet alongside the HDTV we had to setup the channels and connections, it was easy to setup but there was one thing they didnt put into the instructions. When we switched to the DVD player it gave us one of those annoying no signal sounds, like when your aerial is not postioned properly. We managed to fix it weeks down the line by accidentally changing channel on the DVD remote, I cannot explain it but it stopped. It was a minor problem as when we asked Currys for help they told us that we are supposed to get a Samsung loading screen, to this day we have not seen it. DVD player comes with a small remote control and there are useful buttons on the faceplate, so its safe to say for free I got a good deal. Although im not entirely sure how much you can buy one these days but we have learnt to live with it dispite its small fault.
->Easy to use meaning you have buttons on the DVD and the remote, sometimes its good to stretch the old legs a few paces
->Processing..done!. Its faster than you would expect, you put in the DVD and moments later your into the main menu
->Installation is fairly straightforward, comes with instructions and a bit of common knowledge of where male meets female.
->Annoying sound does once in a blue moon return, I do believe im missing something crucial to finally so the mythic Samsung loading screen. To me its a downfall, IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO FIX IT PLEASE COMMENT
Overall i give it (4)****out of (5)*****stars
This was an SDpwnage review i hope you enjoyed it please visit my other reviews.......PEACE
I love this Samsung DVD recorder. It has a massive 160Gb hard drive so you can record alot on this product.
Unfortunatley with the digital switchover in 2010 this product will be worthless because the reception is an Analogue tuner and will not receive digital channels.
It has Progressive scan and DVD-RAM recording format. It also has 2 Scart sockets.
The item is easy to use and isn't too big or bulky. It slips in nicly along with my other appliances by the tv.
You can play DVD's and CD's in the product . Unfortunatley it doesn't have a Memory card slot and the Basic scart lead isn't included.
It comes with a Remote control. The other great features are that you can Pause and rewind live TV, Its has 270 Maximum hard drive recording time (hours).
The product also Supports interactive disc features.
Overall this product is very good quality and I find ot very easy to use and get along with. It has many features and its very relaible.
The quality is brilliant and the installation was simple.
