No apologies required, a lot of the stuff on here goes right over my head. I am sacred to commit to anything. I was the fool that bought into Betamix.

my dad has one of these, they are excellent for the price..
[mod]#7
Thanks for the deal Bristol Hound :)

Links working fine now

Quick note:- If you have a ps3 this automatically does this for you, not so sure about 360's or Wii's
#9
360 does

Wii doesnt (doesnt even have DVD playback!!!)

Anybody know if it outputs an upscaled image via component or if it is only via HDMI?
#10
The xobx 360 does'nt upscale to 1080i though and the xbox is noisy during film playback.

Your better off getting one of these players for the best quality upscaling.
#11
looks good tbh
#12
I have this DVD player and it is excellent. There is a code you can enter to make it multi-region just make sure you do not update the firmware as the latest version does not allow you to make it multi-region.
#13
This is a fantastic DVD player for the money. Probably the best budget DVD player around right now, you'd have to pay over £100 to better it on picture quality.

Just checking - This is a HD DVD player



No, it's a standard DVD player (which upscales the image). A HD-DVD player is typically closer to the £200 mark.

the 360 i think only upscales through VGA, it wont upscale dvd's over component :(

Hello in answer to you question:
This is not a HD DVD player. HD is part of the model reference number.
#17
Does it have a USB port like the Philips for plugging in external drives?
banned#18
Brilliant DVD player. I bought one from Play a week ago for £64.99 i'm gutted! This is a bargain. :thumbsup:
#19
I've got an older model of this range and they're pretty decent, a snip at that money. Handy for Multi-Region DVD's ! I use my PS3 for all my UK DVD's though as it's better at upscaling than this (PS3 won What TV/Hifi Best DVD player under £500) which isn't a shock with all that power under the hood!

A bargain for folks that need one/want to make use of their HD TV's !

It upscales the DVD playback to 1080i (not 1080p) It will not play HD DVD's only standard DVD's

Dont expect full Hi Def quality as I own this player & although the upscaling works well its nowhere near the quailty of full hi def.

For the money this is said to be the best upscaling DVD players, see a good review here: http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=7307

Ive got one and its a nice machine and the remote is not that responsive, **** really. I have to give samsung a call about this. Ive herd many people have this problem to.
#22
Does it come with a playback lead (HDMI??), how much extra would one of these set me back?

Ni HDMI Lead in the box but you can get them from a couple quid upwards
#24
Reading the specs it appears that this player only upscales to 1080i. If you have a fast action film on DVD and your screen can handle it then 1080p is better. The Philips 5980 at £55.99 can do this
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-DVP5980-Multi-region-capable-Upscaling/dp/B000Q7ZCO6/
The Philips also has a USB port on the front so you can watch a DivX film off memory stick which I find very useful (I can't see if the Samsung has this).
I'm not trying to put down the Samsung deal (it is hot) but depending on your needs it may not be the best buy.
#25
I'm not going to vote this deal as "cold", but I think the Philips DVP5960, at £42.99 delivered, is a better DVD player.
It also does the 1080i upscaling, it also has HDMI, but crucially, it has a USB port on the front of it. I can plug in my External hard disc into the front of the DVD player, and watch .avi movies directly on my telly.
£5 cheaper than this deal (also from amazon.co.uk) but with USB thrown in, and you can make it multi-region by typing in a code on your remote. Bargain !
One note though: Philips DVD players, including my own, are reknown for being very bad at receiving remote control keypresses. When I use my Philips DVD remote, my Philips TV "hears" the signal and flashes a light, but for my DVD player to recognise it, I often have to point it very close to the player. Other reviewers have mentioned this problem.
#26
I wish this came out sooner!!

I bought a Philips DVP5980... does the same, but also does 1080p for £49.50... the bonus is that it came with a USB port.

the DVP5960 is probably in the same spec as this samsung...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-DVP5960-Multi-region-capable-upscaling/dp/B000G2Y59E/

Only problem with the Philips are the slow start up times and the cheap feeling remote. But it's been quite good so far!

(oh, the philips doesn't come with ANY cables... total let down!!!!)

The Philips sounds good. Does it have a button to stretch the image to fit the full screen (like the samsung's EZ view function), sometimes dowloaded divx files have differant ratios and the only way i can watch them with the full screen is through VLC player through laptop to tv

Also, do you suffer any problems with the transfer speed connecting your External hard drive to the philips, is is capable to playing the files without being stop start.

I am thinking of buying the philips, as long as it can support an external harddrive of around 1000gb, maybe 500gb, and it can sort out the black bar divx syndrome.
#28
I've got one of these and it's brilliant highly recommended. Took a while to multiregion it though but code worked in the end.

Looking on Amazon they say that the Dvd player will ship from Pixmania, are they any good. I was going to order it from them as they are the same price and you can use Quidco with them but they charge £7.80 for delivery. Unless any one knows any codes for free delivery or money off.

Or HDMI, on the latest model Arcade/Premium's and all Elite's.

Pixmania are part of DSG Group (PC World/Currys etc)

Its is a great price and Im a huge fan of Samsung. Sadly, theyve never hit the divx playback on the head. The quality is bad. Very choppy. So if your like me and want an upscaler as well as playing divx, dont go with Samsung

It [the Philips 5960] does sometimes, quite randomly "freeze" when playing back .avi files (I don't use divx files) but most of the time, it's fine. Having said that, with a small number of my .avi files it gives up on completely, at which point I have to plug my laptop upto my TV and watch them that way.
Do make sure your external HD drive is one of the supported drives though - grab the User Manual from the Philips website for details (mine is a Lacie 160Gb drive, which is supported).
It's still a bargain at £42.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
#38
Samsung also do the DVD-1080P7 which unlike this model does indeed upscale to full HD 1080P (instead of 1080i) Pixmania have it here for £58.80

http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/572304/art/samsung/dvd-1080p7-dvd-player.html

The Phillips player does sound better value for money though.
