At $99 special price it looked like a bargain ( less than half of what my older Pioneer Recorder cost ) but NOW I know why! It never conked out eraly on like some cheaper quality recorders do, picture quality was O.K, and the player had an attractive slim design, but the problems far outweighed the advantages. - it would not play Dvix or MP3 discs ( as it claimed it would in the manual ) - Shortly into the players service life, recorded discs that had more than 40 titles would not...

Our first digital dvd recorder and definately our last ever samsung product we will ever buy.Sometimes a disc would be acceptable then the next time same disc would be spat out.Gave up trying to play shop bought films.
