Someone doesn't know about UK Law. Your contract of sales would be with the supplier you purchased from - in this case Novatech. Contacting Samsung would probably be the worst thing you can do. The device may come with 1yrs warranty, as most often do, but this would be dealt with by the store you purchased it from.

If you're going to give advice, make sure it's correct.

Actually, Samsung deal with all their warranties in-house. All you need to do is provide proof of receipt and the serial number of the product and they either direct you to a nearby Samsung repair company at their expense or send a technician to your house. Only ever bought Samsung products for this reason over the last 10 or so years and their customer service department are flawless. Just post a service request with them online assuming your product is under manufacturer warranty and they deal with it.

Can this be used on a non-HD TV? My TV has component. Will Bluray movies play at lower definition? (I'd be wanting to get this as I need a DVD player, but only have standard TV - will upgrade the TV later on with a budget HDTV).

I brought this myself the other week, but on the HMV deal for £99.99. It's a great little player for the money, and yes you can run it on component as I've just checked the back of my unit just now...

It's fine if you just want it as a basic player, but really, REALLY don't expect it to do anything more. Samsung might say it does iPlayer, YouTube and LoveFilm, but it either does them horribly or simply not at all. Just don't go buying it under any false pretences.

what the hell are you taking about ,so what you are saying is the worst thing you can do when your samsung product goes wrong is to contact samsung lmfao....one poster said he might be better getting form hmv as he can take it back i am assuming he is worried novatech might not want to know if it goes faulty under warranty,as long as you have proof of purchase you can contact the manufacturer direct through there helpline not just with samsung products but with nearly all products via the helpline,the may ask for serial numbers of the product etc but the will deal with any warranty claims..and you often get a quicker repair/replacement than going through the retailer..in many case a door step swap....so to sum up,i know the sale of good act,the information i gave is correct,....next time you post something...do a little research first so you at least look like you know what your taking about..so if your gonna give advice..make sure its correct

Possibly, but it only takes five minutes on 'tinternet to find the code required to make it region free. To me that's not worth an extra £15. :)

that would be for "DVD" mine is Region free for "Blu Rays"

I've just received this player from Richer Sounds as a replacement for my older faulty Samsung BD player and I can assure you the picture quality and frame rate of You Tube and LoveFilm are actually very good. The BBC iPlayer app is also a very good picture but does not support subtitles (I'm hard of hearing).

I've used it on both my 46" and 32" LCD TVs at home and I was impressed with the full screen picture quality. Only Lovefilm was a slight disappontment with some pixelated images but I've used Lovefilm on my PC and laptop and I saw the same thing so it's the (lesser) quality that Lovefilm output at and not any fault of the Samsung [email protected] feature.

If you've actually experienced this 'horribly or not at all' issue you mention (as opossed to just slating Samsung with no evidence) then I might suggest it's an issue with your internet line and not Samsung.

Yes they may deal direct, but under UK law you get better protection when dealing with the retailer, and it is the retailer who is responsible not the manufacturer!

If a shop sells a product with a warrenty then the shop has to take all reasonable attemps to cover what that warrenty offers.

am i the only one who gets what i am trying to say,if the retailer goes bust the warranty is fine with the manufacturer
#16
Yes I do get what you are saying, and yes if the retailer goes bust you can go to the manufacturer, but there are far too many retailers out there who seem to think that ones they sell something they don't have anything to do with you and will give you the manufactures tel no. This is wrong under how retailers are meant to operate under UK law.

Mobile phones is a good example.. Most shops will send you away with a number saying go deal direct, a good customer service should be where they book it in and give you a loan phone.

I can assure you it's not my internet connection as my line frequently tests as 12mb/s. Incidentally when I did a line test through the Samsung player though, it seemed to decide I could only achieve 2.

And what d'you mean 'no evidence'? I bought the player, I tried to get iPlayer and LoveFilm working, they didn't. My flatmate tried, she couldn't manage it. I googled the problem and there are plenty of results saying something along the lines of 'it doesn't have iPlayer or LoveFilm'. Samsung themselves say it doesn't even have iPlayer or LoveFilm yet. Hell it even says it twice in the original post here. I'd actually quite like to see either of these two functioning on yours - if nothing else to see if Samsung have now quietly enabled it - but don't go throwing around the suggestion that I've simply been slating Samsung without due cause.

I tried using youtube and found it a horribly clunky interface to use - I'd call that 'doing it horribly' quite frankly. By comparison I returned the Samsung (after a lot of arguing), bought a Sony BDP-S370 and it's miles better. It didn't take me 2 years to enter a search query on YouTube with the remote, and iPlayer and LoveFilm are actually included with the unit rather than simply 'coming soon'.

Jesus **** man. Learn to use paragraphs at any rate! I seriously don't have time to look at a wall of text.

What I said was completely accurate, and for someone who "apparently" knows about the Sale of Goods Act - you didn't make your case very well. Funny how you never mentioned anything about the Distance Selling Regulations, as that is the main part of the law that this would come under.

Now, I wasn't here the last couple of days to read the thread, but 'Shock' has already pointed out what you should have already known.

The 1 yr warranty that comes as standard on most items these days IS from the manufacturer. However, your CONTRACT of sale, is with the retailer.

The retailer then does the "leg work" of contacting the manufacturer directly (or wholesaler depending on product) while ensuring that the customer doesn't have to suffer an unneccesary wait). This goes on behind the scense, so the replacement people normally receive is one from the retailers stock, while the other is sent back to the manufacturer.

So this is "what the hell I am talking about" because this is one area of the law I'm very much antiquated with. I shall refrain from spelling out what I did as a profession a few years back, but needless to say - you're wrong. You can "lmfao" all you want, and believe your knowledge of the law is better than mine (lmfao?) which I highly doubt, but simply put - it's people like you who believe they know everything that screws the rest of us up when it comes to ill-informed advice.

The amount of people writing in to magazines about this specific problem is unreal. They decided to do exactly as you said, and came out worse off - while the resident editor who specialises in law tells them exactly what I said. If you decide to go elsewhere other than the retailer... even if it's the manufacturer, you could very well stand to lose any legal ground you already had.
#23
Tried this DVD hack, doesnt work for me. "no disc" never leaves the player display until the unit shuts down totally. have even tried waiting for "no disc" to leave the top right of the screen after a few seconds - but that doesn't work either.

phoned samsung today to try and get timescales for iplayer update, does not look promising

their 1st response,

"we have absolutely no idea when this feature will become available"

pressed for a more comprehensive reply at least confirmation that matter is being progressed with a guestimate on timescales, asked to speak with supervisor or given address where i could write where someone would have an idea, put on hold

2nd response

"we have no idea when and if this feature will become avialable, we cannot provide with any contact point for anyone at samsung who would be able to tell you any different"

expressed my dismay at such a reply and was simply advised

"please phone back in around 3 months when somone may be able to give you further information"

shoddy customer service and i am not confident that the player will be upgraded for iplayer, tempted to return for refund as iplayer was part of reason for purchase, just should not have beleived the coming soon bumpf! shame as not to bad a player.

wonder if this will be a similar saga to the lg freesat iplayer problems?
