Samsung DVD-HD850

 

As most of our tech-savy readers are aware, dvd technology has been around for quite a while, relatively speaking of couse. The first DVD players went on sale in November of 1997 and were of course terribly expensive as is the case with any emerging...

Good visual quality ; Great mp3 playback quality ; Good build qulity and great manual ; Upconverts dvd for HDTVs

Limit of 8 characters and no global shuffle for music ; Only one file type per music disk ; BensCustomCases.com Rating ; Quality:10/10 ; Performance:9/10 ; Software Pack:n/a ; Stability:10/10 ; Features:7/10 ; Value:7/10 ; Total Score 8.6

The HD850 is a great dvd player but not without some faults. It has great looks and performs very well in the video department. It also has very good quality mp3 playback, and some interesting features. On the other hand if you have a regular tv you...

Samsung DVD-HD850

 

The Samsung DVD-850 will go down as one of the bargains of the year -- a next-generation DVD player that precedes models from every other mainstream brand.

Slinky design ; High-end features ; Advanced connectivity ; Wide video and audio format support

No DVI output

Predictibly, it loses out slightly to the high-end prowess of Denon's mighty DVD-2910 when it comes to contrast reproduction. We've seen the car chases in Ronin more times than we care to recall and Samsung's player didn't pull out the finer shadow...

Samsung DVD-HD850 review

 

It's telling that despite all the flat-screen TVs we've reviewed here at CNET.co.uk, a CRT TV is still our top-rated display. In this transitional period before high definition arrives (a period that will last for several years), there's no doubting...

Slinky design; high-end features; advanced connectivity; wide video and audio format support.

DVD-HD950 available for not much more; no DVI output.

The DVD-HD850 has been a hot consumer product since launch, offering high-end features at an extraordinarily low price. With the only competition coming from high-end manufacturers like Denon, the Samsung has the mainstream to itself. If you have a...

Samsung Could Do Better

 

I purchased this dvd player to go with the Samsung 50" DLP I purchased. While I've found the DLP TV to be up to par, I have found this dvd player isn't. The main selling point was that this is an up conversion dvd player, meaning that using the ...

Extremely Frustrating!!!

 

OK. So the picture is great and the sound is great. But that should be a given for any DVD player - let alone an up-conversion model. I had a economy JVC DVD player and when I bought a 50" Samsung DLP I figured it was time to upgrade my DVD. I went to ...

Good picture and sound. Sleek looking

Delay on tray opening.Horrible FF and REV functions!

Nice DVD Player but NO DIVX in US or Canada

 

I picked this up to go with my new Samsung HLR-4264W DLP TV and was fairly impressed by the results. Picture and speed of the DVD player were very nice through the HDMI cable but the up-conversion aspect of the player was a little underwhelming. Don't ...

Is this really required for a great picture?

 

Small size player

Does the same thing as many Big screen TV's, player is not needed

Great addition to my home theater

 

Purchase through set-up: I purchased the Samsung HD850 at Best Buy to replace my aging and temperamental APEX AD-703 DVD changer. The 850 plugged right into my burgeoning home theater system with relative ease using an HDMI to DVI cable (not included) ...

Picture quality, upconversion, HDMI and Digital Optical outputs, slick silver finish

Fast Forward function, If your monitor's HD... you probably have cheaper options
