Samsung DVD-HD950 review

 

Samsung DVD-HD950

Plays DVD-Audio and SACD discs; slim design; jog/shuttle control on remote; upconverts to 720p, 768p, and 1080i resolutions; aspect-ratio control; solid compatibility.

Inconsistent image quality on horizontal-resolution tests; lack of smoothness on some difficult images; 768p output inactive.

Samsung's DVD-HD950, a universal HDMI-upconversion DVD player, falls a little short of videophile demands.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to review a progressive-scan, universal deck, with a price tag $100 higher. People lapped it up despite some criticisms made by yours truly. How far we've come. Although its picture quality is not without its...

Samsung DVD-HD950

 

Samsung's DVD-HD950 sits somewhere between the budget and midrange price bands, sharing features with more expensive models without equaling the same levels of picture performance.

Universal specification; stylish design; excellent sound

Lacks class-leading detail

Unmatched sound quality compared to ANY CD player at this price.

Use with quality equipment.

So much potential...

 

Upconversion, DVD-Audio and SACD support at a reasonable price.

Bad usablility and lack of some basic features.

Samsung HD941... The previous version to the HD950

 

Great Price point! Great up-conversion! Great looking! Easy to use.

Remote response is slow, Surround sound test function doesn't work with fiber optic.

Samsung DVD-HD950

 

Purchased to go with my new 37 inch LCD HD ready TV ; HDMI connection, Excellent construction, Picture quality and user friendliness, the remote is well laid out and the facility to instantly rewind sections of the movie to rewatch a section again is...

they say you cannot adjust the black level in hdmi, but have not tried yet............ bar that, one minor niggle, a silver version of the case would have been nice

An excellent machine all round and an unbelivable price
