Samsung SV-DVD54T

 

Samsung's 3-in-1 device includes technology both old and new. It has a VCR, DVD player, and a digital set top box to bring SD pictures into your living room.

Eliminates the need for three separate units ; Integrated remote control simplifies usage ; Dual tuners allow you to watch one program while recording another

DVD is only for playback; not a DVD recorder ; Bulky unit compared to slimline DVD players

Samsung have successfully integrated three devices (DVD,VCR,STB) into one unit suitable for people that still want a VCR for to playback their old cassettes or to future proof their home entertainment device for when analog broadcasts cease.

A solid combination of three products - STB, DVD player, VHS tape recorder/player

Efficient in concept ; Reduces number of boxes in your setup

Completely unable to play anything other than standard conventional DVDs. Forget about CD-R etc. Careful reading of the manual gives this fact away ; Breaks down not infrequently, have needed to use an extended warranty several times (glad I bought...

Was able to forget about the rooftop antenna and go with a rabbit ear set up. Pictures are dead perfect, no reception issues whatsoever. Plays all the DVDs I rented. I ran cables to my stereo and the sound is good - much better than what I was getting...
