Don't buy this POS system. I also suspect that their Blue-Ray version based on the same chassis is no better. I will not be buying any Samsung product any time in the future.

None yet that I can determin

Started to have issues at 6 months and died by warranty's end. Just growls, stops and locks up

Consumer review by:

Not the quality I expected.


The price was attractive but you get what you pay for.

Easy setup ; Easy to take apart to retrieve your disk when the thing dies

The front panel controls are difficult to see. Sound was poor. After using it about 7 times the system died. Now it goes into protection mode. Displays PROT and turns itself off. I had to take it apart to get my disk out before I trash it

No pros
