    Written on: 22/12/2003 by LJHenderson (4 reviews written)

    For the price I paid in 2000 for the Samsung DVD 709 , £279 ($380 U.S)I got a piece of bad equipment, apart from the de-macrovision. Even playing original movies it hicks/sticks whirs and clicks.

    Compared to the Pacific model I bought in late 2002 (£60 Asda UK), I feel I have been completely ripped of by samsung… Read Full Review

    There is a function on this player to change the region to whatever you want. Go to www.dvd.reviewer.co.uk for procedure

    I've had a 709 for a few years now and regularly buy region 1 dvds from play.com and have yet to have any bother although i have never bought one with RCE coding. It won't play dvd/r either. It does react badly to discs with slight damage, though my pals toshiba 100e doesn't.

    “The Samsung 709 is a good DVD player with a feature...”

    Written on: 30/01/2002 by Valo. (1 review written)

    The Samsung 709 is a good DVD player with a feature list normally only found on much more expensive equiptment. A great bonus is that the player is easily made region free with a remote control hack. Picture quality is only average however, with very obvious grain in dark scenes and pronounced 'light rings' in high contrast scenes (even with a correctly adjusted TV).
    The disc can easily be heard spinning during quiet moments in movies but this is not too obtrusive. Layer changes can be slow… Read Full Review

    How do you justify telling students this is a good buy, it does not play copies, vcs's, mp3's or cdr's. Students are on a tight budget and would be much better of with the £34 Pacific 1001 (from ASDA) which plays everything I have put in it (even unfinished and faulty DVD's)

    Written on: 07/11/2001 by jptc1. (1 review written)

    The samsung 709 DVD player was my first player and I have to say possible best. It performed better than some of its higher end non budget rival DVD players, by being able to play films like Matrix,T2,Mi2 without any flaws and once hacked Ihad no problems with my region ones.
    I think for money and quality it's an all round winner. The only thing that could probably beat it would be one of the newer samsung DVD players with cd-r and mp3 support… Read Full Review

    This player has a history of problems, including playing the Matrix. Earlier models would not play this film, unless you had the firm ware upgraded. This reviewer is giving bad information

    Written on: 15/04/2001 by Ross. (1 review written)

    I found the Samsung 709 a good cheap DVD player. I don't think much more can really be expected for the £225 I paid which was for a ready modified version. This player is now available for £150 if you don't mind shopping around which is an absolute steal. Some early problems encountered with the matrix but firmware changes soon got rid of this. Won't play plunkett and maccleane (region2) all the way through though. Any ideas would be appreciated… Read Full Review

    This is a great budget DVD player but not the best. there are other DVD players which are equally cheap and are multi region.
