Samsung DVD-SH855M review

 

Few points for style, but it's what's inside that counts

Impressively versatile ; Good audio

Dated design ; Poor pictures at lower quality levels

The first Freeview DVDR from Samsung delivers excellent playback images and good recordings: a decent all-rounder

Samsung DVD-SH855M HDD/DVD Recorder

 

Blu-ray this, HD DVD that! Pah! DVD still exists you know and taking advantage of that original format war is Samsung's latest DVD recorder.

The DVD-SH855M is a digital media lover's dream; not only will it play MP3, JPEG and DivX files from DVDs and CDs, but thanks to the USB port on the front (behind the flip-down panel) it will also play them from flash memory devices and other...

Samsung DVD-SH855M review

 

Samsung's latest DVD recorder packs a healthy 250GB hard-drive and HDMI output. Can it trouble the best in its class?

Good but not great, this is a doddle to use and a fine choice for faithful recording

Samsung DVD-SH855M review

 

The Samsung's DVD-SH855M look is spoilt by the bright blue light on the power switch, which clashes with the device's green LCD screen.

Samsung DVD-SH855M

 

But it's not all good news - the DVD-SH855M lacks 1080p upscaling (only 720p and 1080i are available), and it's harder to use than its rivals. The deck's remote is packed with swarms of small, hard to find buttons that make the user experience far from...

Design, picture quality, good price for 250GB recorder

No 1080p upscaling, poorly designed remote

Samsung DVD-SH855M

 

This black box recorder from Samsung has all the latest digital goodies packed inside, so it's strange to see such an old-fashioned design. Still, the DVD-SH855M may well appeal to those who like a bit of retro chic in their styling.

Impressively versatile, Good audio
