Samsung HT X30
Advantages: Great Features such as Divx playback, USB interface & digital upscaling to 1080i
Disadvantages: From my experiance not a relaible peice of kit also a little tricky to use at first.
I purchased my one of these 18 Months ago from my local Currys and to be honest it has never worked properly from the moment I bought it. This player has some great features such as digital upscaler, DIvX playback & a USB interface which you can plug your external Hard drive into and play your favourate movie rip's or your entire MP3 collection. The first problem i had was that the audio was not synced with the visuals, this is using official rented DVD's. It did not matter what DVD I put in they all had the same problem. I ended up taking the player back after a month or so to find out that i was not allowed to have another one i had to sen it away to be fixed, I was told i would get it back from Samsung in 2 weeks. When i finally got it back i realised that the lip syncing was only an intermittant problem now if i kept ejecting the DVD then reloading it evetually i would be able to watch the DVD with the lips in sync. I still have this problem today so if you are thinking of buying one it is woth asking the retailer what sort of service they can offer you if you get problems with the player.
All in all a great Multimedia system if it worked correctly, Although i do like playing my DVDrips via USB as i can have my whole collection on one HD watching in 1080i.
Summary: Great idea poor execution no reliabilty from my experience.
