I am not tech savy at all and was looking for a basic DVD player to replace one that I've had for over 8 years. I read many reviews about all different types and brands of DVD players and this one ranked very high. It is not fancy and doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles but for me, it's perfect. All I had to do was pretty much plug it in. It even works with my old style TV. I would highly recommend if you are looking for something simple that works really well.
When I first got it, I was very impressed with the clarity. But unfortunately after about 4 months it began to freeze or pause about every 30 sec to 1 min. When I contacted support, they told me to reset it, and that made it worse, now it won't read half my DVD's. The parts are still under warranty, but labor ends after 90 days, obviously not worth paying them to fix a $35 DVD, so now it's junk!
The product seems very cheaply made and makes quite a loud humming noise when being used. Not an issue when you're walking a movie that is loud but I bought this DVD to be in my home gym to use for yoga and meditation videos so the noise is an issue
This is a good unit- the only thing I don't like is the short time that it gives me if I stop it before it turns off. It will hold the spot of the DVD and starts up where I left off so, its not really a problem after all.
This might be a great DVD player. I have new 4K TV and was expecting a better picture than my old DVD/VCR player. It wasn't even though I was using the HDMI cable instead of the basic RCA (that I used with my DVD/VCR).
I could not find a setting on the TV that would improve the picture quality. Ended up returning it.
I love the size and everything. I did read in another review that the device made a clicking noise.This is true. I was determined to get a Samsung, Not happy with a new product making noise right out of the box.
FYI doesn't play Blu-ray Discs.
I purchased the Samsung Progressive Scan DVD Player with 1080p Up-Conversion - DVD-C500 for my wife and she is very pleased with this item. I would recommend purchasing this item as a gift or to personally use.
I have used it once and so far it is working. I will not use it much but it was a good price for what I want to use it for. The only thing is that the cords to it are to short.
I bought this to replace a broken and it works great!! Nice picture, no skipping, no stalling, awesome, and affordable.
