Consumer review by: T.O. (newegg.com)

No fun after 6 months.

 

It's been given a Poor rating. Not the worst, because it does work for the first three weeks or so. Perhaps if I had bought it from Newegg, I could have returned it when the problems began and got a new one.

Well it's better than a VCR. Picture quality is good and there are lots of options and settings

Where to start? Well it freezes. A lot. Apparently I'm not alone with this. Once you have owned it for a little while it begins and doesn't get any better. System errors are also annoying. It will be saving info from a recording, then crash and have a...

problem child

 

Gotta love new egg, six months later and they still honor RMA. I can't say enought good about these guys. Have used them faithfull for 8 years.

good price, interface is good.

This thing has had trouble from the begining. It has frozen twice and I have had to take it out and unplug it and reset it to get disc out. Now it takes 3-4 tries for it to recognize a disc, regular ones like star wars. Now it won't even recognize most...

Don't buy

 

Newegg of course shipped it pronto. It was my fault I didn't return it before the warranty ran out. Live and learn.

Looks good

I purchased the previous model to this one. It was recertified from Samsung. It worked for a total of 3 months and now only reads DVDs every 20th time or so. Samsung is not offering a firmware upgrade on the previous model. Before you buy, make sure...

Update

 

Bumped it up to a full five egg as I'm extremely happy with this and Newegg corrected the description to the correct record media. No Way to beat Newegg!!!

Don't know about Dapsters complaint as it has worked flawless for me. Got mine from Newegg, noticed Dap didn't. I would buy this again without thinking twice! Actually tempted to get another at this price. Simple to use and at 60 don't need the 8 year...

run away

 

I don't think newegg did this knowingly. Overall, I have done very well with Newegg. I think Samsung dumped their garbage here.

absolutely nada

These referbs are pure garbage. I went 0 for 2 on this recycled trash, before I figured this out. The first was DOA and the 2nd would give a system error, trash the disk, and lock up whenever you tried to record anything. I don't think these units were...

Simply a bad product

 

I made a mistake in not reviewing earlier DVD product lines from Samsung and not having waited long enough for the negative reviews to start coming forth.

May or may not continue to record once problems begin to arise.

I have gone through two units, both with the same problem. When I bought this unit, the online reviews had not been old enough to report the ongoing problems with this unit that you will see all over the Internet. In my case, the unit will read store...

SAMSUNG DVD-R155 DVD Recorder

 

All in all this is a great product. Have been shopping with Newegg for years and they can't be beat. This is the first time I have had a problem with their specifications

Great product. Have a Samsung LCD TV and computer monitors. Samsung always seem to come out on top. This is easy to use and the recordings I have made from my dish have been fantastic. The Up conversion is really impressive. At this price don't pass it...

Gave it 4 Eggs because the description said it records to DVD -/+ R/RW. It will only record to DVD-R/RW. There is no tuner so you have to have a cable or sat dish box to record programs
