Samsung DVD-V5500

 

The Samsung DVD-V5500 comes across at first as an entry-level product, designed for those who find tuning and programming a VCR a task of Herculean pr...

Lots of video and audio output options, very easy to use

No DivX support, weak picture and MP3 support

A decent convergence device. Not too flashy, but with plenty of display options. It's not really the choice for the hard-core videophile, but for the rest of us the V5500 covers most of the right bases.

Solid performer at a great price!

 

The Samsung DVD-S5500 DVD/VCR Combo has been a solid performer for me since I have purchased it. It has given me no problems at all. Operation is straight forward and easy to understand. The remote is easy to use and the controls all make sense. ...

Solid, reliable, compact, a good value, progressive scan output

Progressive scan can fool you on a regular TV (read review.)

My combo VCR - A good choice.

 

(SEE NOTE BELOW) I was replacing a broken 13" TV-VCR Sylvania combo I had for the spare room. The grandkids use the spare room when they come to visit. I wanted a separate TV & VCR this time since the combos don’t seem to last long. It ...

A good combo with many features.
