Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from:

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Great all in one

Ok this product had its bugs etc when first released but after a few software updates and tweaking I can say that this player is excellent.It might take a bit of time to get use to the various functions, but once you do you should find it easy to navigate around.

The picture quality on all functions is excellent this includes blu ray,dvd,iplayer/apps and recorded tv( especially in hd)Its also a big bonus to find all the on demand services on this ,bbc iplayer,4od,itv player and 5 demand plus of course loads more.In my opinion this is one of the best blu ray /freeview pvrs you can buy.

Nice machine!!

Having used the player for a week now, I`m very happy with it. The freeview hd recordings are spot on, can't tell the difference between live and recorded.

Allshare function is awesome, I can stream my videos from my galaxy ace 2 phone to the player, the quality is very good. Lots of great features, it makes a pleasure to watch video content from wherever now, be it on lovefilm, BBC iplayer, or on my external HDD. Thumbs up samsung !!! :).

Not Bad BUT

When in the process of recording a program and you want to watch that program from the start and it is still recording the program ( it lets you start watching) but when it has finished recording it shuts you off very disappointing.
