You Pay for what You Get


Samsung has always produced good products. I chose this one for a friend. Tried it before giving it to them, worked fine. After giving it to them they said it didn't play their movies. Not sure on this one

Works well - great value for price!

Horrid! DO NOT BUY!!!



Out of the box works great, cool feature where if you shut off the power during a movie it will resume the film where you left off.

Only works for a little ofer 3 months then suddenly just up and stops working for no reason. What other reviewers have said is true.

Dead after two months of use


Worked pretty much as expected, except in terms of longevity. Seemed to be a bargain for the price.

After two months, doesn't recognize any discs. Included remote doesn't come with batteries.
