Samsung DVD-SH855

 

Very easy to use menu system. My wife has picked up most functions without ever looking at the manual and she is no technofile! A doddle to record onto HDD or DVD. Plays DivX / MP3 / Photo files straight from a USB card, or you can copy them across to...

Relative slow EPG. Whilst there is a picture in picture function in the EPG when you scroll through the listed programmes it changes the channel being watched! Thus you cannot browse to see what is on another channel without loosing the one you are...

This combi DVD/HDD recorder with Freeview, and HDMI upscaling does everything you could ask at a very good price.

The main problems are the layout of the remote and the system interface. Both seem to have received little planning and make general operation somewhat cumbersome. Though full of features and it does do what it says on the box, you will need some...

1. Being able to watch a programme from the beginning which is still in the process of being recorded. 2. Being able to watch a separate programme already recorded whilst recording a new programme at the same time. 3. Simple to set up a recording...

1. The operating manual is not the easiest to read, understand and make sense of. 2. Beginning and/or end of recorded programmes are quite often clipped by a minute or so. 3. Only twelve programmes at a time can be preset for recording - could do with...

Works well with other Samsung AV kit

User interface not as easy as Panasonic, very difficult to navigate recorded programmes, as the description does not include the programme name, just date/time!!!

Set up easy. Looks good. Picture quality good.

EASY TO USE, CLEAN NON-FUSSY DESIGN

DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY PLACE PROGRAMME NAME AGAINST RECORDING OR SHOW THE PROGRAMME IT IS RECORDING, MY PREVIOUS PANASONIC UNIT DID THIS AND I FOUND THIS VERY USEFUL

Overall excellent, easy to use and good quality.

Slow in finding digital channels would benefit from page scroll.

Samsung DVD-SH855

 

Easy to programme recording using the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and the ability to modify the set times. Editing facilities are useful and the title edit is simple to use as the whole list of characters are on view with hotkeys for "Back Space",...

The equipment will not permit the user to select the quality of image and hence the file size of digital broadcasts: therefore, the quoted maximum recording time of the harddrive is misleading as it only applies to analogue broadcasts. This also...
