Samsung DVD-1080P7


Blu-ray or HD DVD will one day come to our hallowed shores. (I mean the official discs, as a few players have already arrived.) And then we will all revel in pure 1080p joy, with strikingly clear pic

Consumer review by: Jim (

Samsung DVD-SH875


Clean and simple looking design - aesthetically pleasing. Reasonably simple controls The manual is concise and understandable. It does what it says on the box

The controller is too small with legends that are only just readable - All paper documentation should be in 14 pitch ariel at least with no odd colour combinations. A CD / DVD version of the documentation viewed through the TV would be useful
