Perfect player for first-timers or sophisticated users


This was my first DVD player, and I couldn't have picked a better choice. Setup and operation is easy, yet it comes with lots of great features that you'll learn to love in a short while. I've had mine for over a year with no problems at all. Sound...

Great value, good features, sophisticated styling, excellent quality.

None. Some people say that the remote is awkward, but I like it.

Samsung creates more bang for the buck


I bought this player to replace a Yamaha DVD player (made by Philips) that decided that it didn't like to load DVD's without unplugged it and plugging it back in. I got it as an open box item. I always have heard that Samsung products and an...

Great value, excellent picture and sound, excellent cust. support

Very slow loading discs, can be sensitive to scratches on discs

This DVD Player is versatile, but somewhat complicated


I bought this DVD player almost a year ago. It still works just as great. I have not faced any problems with it. It plays different types of formats including DVD, MP3, VCD, CD-R, and CD-RW. The remote control also controls your TV, but contains...

Plays DVD, MP3, VCD, CD-R, CD-RW; Universal Remote, Good sound quality, cheap.

Samsung-M301 A quality DVD player at an affordable price!


The purchase of this Samsung-M301 player marks my first foray into the wonderful world of DVD. Before purchasing this DVD player, I did some sizable research on-line to find a versatile player that didn't cost an arm and a leg. I narrowed my choices...

Versatile Yet Inexpensive ; Plenty of Features ; Sleek Design

A Couple of Minor Issues--Low Sound Volume ; Remote Control

We have had ours for about 4 months


The Pros/Cons notes above pretty much say it all. We bought this unit at the same time as our flat screen TV [Toshiba 27AF41] and the combination using high quality component video cables for a connection has given us an outstanding picture.

Fine quality for the money.

Remote joystick feature takes a bit of getting use to.

You get what you pay for


There are DVD players out there selling for under one hundred dollars. The question is, are the more expensive ones over priced, or are 80 dollar players nothing but junk? The answer probably lies in between.

Versatile player, reads multiple media formats.

Poor picture quality, finnicky playback

Fantastic DVD-Player!


This is my first DVD player, and I must say that the Samsung M301 is by far the best electronic device in my living room. I love the wonderful quality of the DVD playback and the sound features and options are very cool. It also plays a lot quieter...

Sleek Silver, Mp3 Playback, CD-R/RW Compatibility, awesome quality, and nice sound output.

The directional knob on the remote is a pain. Not Multi-Regional.

A good and Inexpensive DVD player


I initially wanted the M101 which was on sale but when the PX had the M101 for $20.00 more I said what the heck and bought it. At first I was kinda hesitant because I didn't do any research on this one but after I got it out of the box and hooked up I...

Inexpensive,stylish,simple to operate

doesn't come in basic black

Samsung M301 DVD Player -- Big Bang for the Buck


I'll be honest, I bought my M301 player for two reasons, positive reviews here on Epinions and the price. You get a whole bunch for not a lot of moola!

Cheap. Lots of features for the price.

Terrible manual. Remote "joystick" is not as handy as it might appear.

DVD, CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3 -- for how much?!?!


Plays CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3. Remote can control TV. Low price.

Found one report of an incompatibility problem on the Internet (have not found any myself).
