3 out of 5 eggsSound is Good but DVD Player has issues

Pros: Sound quality is good for the price. DVD Player is a multi-format player meaning it plays both NTSC and PAL formatted discs.

Cons: DVD player is horrible. I have it connected via HDMI. Video goes blank while audio is still present during movies movies. Happends with all types of media that I have used. You will need to turn the system off and turn it back on to get the picture back on the TV. Also, DO NOT UPGRADE your firmware to the latest on Samsung's website if you plan on playing backups on this player. You will get the "Play Prohibited" message after the firmware upgrade which is what happended to mine. Thought the upgrade would fix this blank screen issue but added another problem instead.

Other Thoughts: In regards to the "Play Prohibited" message, if you backup your DVD's using CloneDVD or Nero Recode, it should play in this dvd player. However, if you use DVD Decryptor or ImageBurn for backups, they will not play after the firmware upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsEven my wife is impressed.

Pros: Nice sound from 5.1 speakers. Watching TV, or movies, or the fm tuner...crisp clear sound with nice bass. The pro logic options are nice too. Plays every DVD I've put in it. +r -r dvd5 dvd9 lightscribe hp tdk....I cant trip this thing up. USP drives...I have 2 gb, 4gb, and 8gb drives. Reads all drive very well....plays every mp4 variant. avi, divx, xvid....I've had no problems at all! I cant stress enough how good a deal this system is for the price. This is not an HK or Dennon system, and you couldnt reasonably expect it to be in this $ range....but you get a BIG BANG for not many bucks.

Cons: Load times are a bit long....but if thats the trade off for reliability...I'll take it! The one guy with the humming problem....he has a wiring problem, no doubt about that. And I cant speak on the HDMI because I dont have that hook-up.

Other Thoughts: Buy this just rocks!

3 out of 5 eggsTheres better

Pros: Good sound

Cons: Odd humming noise when turned off.

Other Thoughts: Great system for a non-main viewing television
I actually ended up hooking this up to a 27" LCD TV I have in my bedroom. Works good for viewing movies in bed. Small Size would be nice for a Dorm, or such space.

2 out of 5 eggsNot that great

Pros: plays divx and xvids, upconverts dvds well, great sound when running a cable box or external source through.

Cons: where do I start? when watching dvds or divx/xvids the screen randomly goes blank, sometimes for only a second or 2, others for minutes on end. the only way to get the picture back when it goes for a long time is to turn it off and back on. then you have to find your place in the movie again, it does not resume! only one external input. aspect ratio selection on hdmi is non-existant. 4:3 always stretches to 16:9 on a 16:9 tv.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what player to get, but I know what player not to. steer clear.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth your money

Pros: You can plug in your usb device into it. Speakers sound great.

Cons: It only reads FAT 32 format.
It takes sometime for it to read usb drives. When playing from usb devices, if you pause for more than about 4 mins it stops and u need to play it again and find the spot where you were watching.

Other Thoughts: Good product. I'm happy w/ the purchase.
