Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy it Have only had this, for nine months, and remote control is stuffed, I've put 5 different batteries in, gone and bought more, still doesnt work. Doesn't play blu rays, and doesn't play overseas dvds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Disapointment - why a nolong patronise Samsung. After owning this unit for a number of years. I must say that I agree with all the other negative reviews: buggy operation the unit quite often gets confused if a disk is left in the tray and you try and use other functions. Even shut down and restart leads to a failed restart - I have found this (what a presume is a software fault) very frustrating. Probably needs another software update - I have done one since ownership, it did not help. However, the quality of the two tuners seem good - And provide better reception than the the tuner in my television. The organisation of the remote and general programing is clumsy and the lack of the unit's software to display jpegs is very disappointing. One plan was to network it to remote storage and run slide shows through it - not if they are in jpeg form you can't. Support for the various codex such a unit as this would need, are to be too limited. For the price, the unit certainly did not recognise my expectations. It is little more than an overprice Blu-ray player - with a PVR with limited program flexibility. In technology terms it was well behind the curve and the benefit with interrogation with my Samsung TV was not realised. Too bad - the hype raised my expectations to high.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trouble all the time When you prerecord it whould many times just came up with a circle and line throughcircle the recording cant b er seen then. Sometimes it would just record a few minutes og the programmed time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst digital recorder I've ever owned This recorder plays dvd's with no issues but as a tv recorder it is ineffectual. It constantly throws up adjustment acknowledgement warnings then only records minutes of a pre arranged television show. The filing and deletion process is exhausting and insufferable and quite frankly just not practical at all. Especially if the basic function of recording a simple television program cannot be achieved.
