    I found out today that I might be "upgraded" to this player because one of mine isn't working but they don't carry it any more.

    I can't find any informatino on it because I guess it's somewhat new. Does anyone have any experience with this specific player or Samsung players in general?

    Here's a link to the Samsung site:

    Thanks!

    Best Buy is selling them for $60 and I am actually researching to see if it would be worth it.

    Well I got one today from Sears since the Koss one I had would't play my DVD-Rs. I tried one movie and it played it all the way through with no problems what so ever. Gets my seal of approval so far.

    Box doesn't list DVD+Rs as a compatible format but I always use -Rs so that's fine with me. The Best Buy I called said they coudln't keep them in stock because lots of people bought them and very few returned them.

    And at Sears you can get a 2 year replacement warranty for like $7 which insures that if it breaks, I get a new one. And if they don't make it any more, I get a better one. heh heh.

    Well, I am returning mine. It will not play my CD-R's. It begins playing them but after 30 sec. it pauses scans back 5 sec. and then plays the same 5 sec. over and over. Its not the cds since they were all flawless and it did the exact same thing at about the same time with every disc. So, I am taking the cash and then I am going to Circuit City to pick up the Zenith which I should of done in the first place. A much better player, with an LCD screen, and auto-play but best of all it will actually play my CD-Rs.

    I haven't tried any CDRs... I don't use them for anything. It's played all my DVD-Rs without any problems at all so I'm happy with it.

    GOod luck with your new one...

    Its the same one my parents have and for $70 its pretty impressive. It played a disc that appeared to have been cleaned with steel wool without ever freezing. The play also feels much more heavier and sturdier than the Samsung.

    I had a P231. Not worth the money in my book. It was good, but I recently upgraded to a pio 563a and there's a night and day difference. And the 563a isn't even a 'high end' model. Save a few extra bones and get something a bit better, it's amazing what the difference can be.
