    5-0 out of 5 stars Good buy
    I use this monitor exclusively for gaming. It's hooked up via DVI-D to an nVidia GeForce FX 5950 card. I have nothing bad to say about the monitor's performance - the games I play look spectacular with it.

    I am used to a Sony Trinitron 19" CRT and now, when I look at the CRT alongside this Samsung LCD? The CRT looks terrible :)

    Best part of this Samsung LCD? The blacks are REALLY black. When I use xterms the clarity of the text is out of this world.

    If you can afford ~$1200, I really recommend this monitor to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Happy Customer
    I've owned this Samsung (213T) 21.3'' Flat-Panel LCD Monitor for about a month now, and think it is an excellent monitor! My display had one dead pixel that's out towards the edge and can't even be noticed unless you know where to look. For a screen this size that's damn good. I've read in some reviews that criticize the brightness, that concerned me a little. But once I received my monitor I found that it not only was plenty bright enough, but I had to turn it down from the default setting! You definitely want to use the digital connection for hook up, don't even think of hooking up to the analog connection. I've played a few games and DVD's and have noticed very minimal ghosting. I love the adjustability of the stand, you can just about put the screen at any angle or position your heart desires.

    All I can say is I don't know why I waited so long in purchasing this monitor it's just fantastic!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Wish I researched Samsung's replacement policy before buying
    Bought two of these monitors about two weeks ago. Both came with several dead pixels right next to each other forming an annoying blimp on the screen. Samsung agreed to replace both units. However, when the replacements arrived today, they turned out to be refurbished and with MUCH greater problems. One had a horrible color problem where one edge of the screen has one shade and the other another. Much worse when looked at from an angle. Another replacement was too dim even with brightness set to 100. Both refurbished monitors had many dead pixels. Apparently, this is acceptable to Samsung.
    Beware! Samsung will only replace with refurbished monitors, so if yours comes defective, you are out of luck trying to replace for a new unit.
    Needless to say, I will never buy Samsung again.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good picture quality, not good for gamers
    This monitor has a truly amazing picture at 1600x1200, and the colors are great, too. With DVI, the picture is very stable and quite beautiful

    HOWEVER:

    If you are a hardcore gamer, pass this one up.

    Many people may disagree with this, but for me the ghosting is too noticeable and it is distracting and can actually detract from your gameplaying.

    For instance, if you play Unreal Tournament 2004 online, you need to be able to rotate the camera all the time while still retaining the ability to discern motion in the distance (say, an enemy running at you). With this monitor the ghosting is just too much and it can seriously hinder your playing.

    However, everything else about it is good as far as LCDs go. For me, I am going to return this monitor and go with a ViewSonic 22" CRT instead. It's half the price and offers just as good a picture quality in my opinion. Plus, I like being able to run my monitor at any resolution without having to worry about interpolation. And, I'll say it again -- for me ghosting is a show stopper.

    Here's a small experiment: try tracking the mouse pointer with your eyes in windows while moving it at various speeds. On this monitor is blurs easily. On a CRT it doesn't. If you are a gamer -- stay away. For this price you can get a CRT that will blow this LCD out of the water.

    However, other factors such as the ergonomics of this monitor are pretty good..

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tip if used in 90-degree "portrait" mode
    Inasmuch as this monitor alone cost more than my last IBM computer system (including monitor and printer), I was highly critical of it the first couple weeks -- looking for dead pixels (none found) -- etc. I edit several newsletters in QuarkXpress and my eyesight is slowing failing. I bought this unit because of its nifty pivot-to-portrait-mode capability, a feature I value highly, and which reminded me of my old Macintosh Portait (monochrome) Monitor years ago, which I loved. Anyway, I was less than pleased at first with the sharpness of small fonts, when viewed in portrait mode: five lines were sharp, the next five line fuzzy, the next five were sharp, etc. In checking with Samsung's 1-800 technical support, a techie worked me through 20 minutes of fine adjustements until he suggesed I push the monitor's "Auto" button (I hadn't done so earlier, as I assumed incorrectly that it would merely discard all my fine adjustments are return to factory-preset defaults). But that did the trick! All type everywhere on the massive screen popped into equal sharpness, and now I'm 100 percent tickled with this unit and can recommend it to others. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best LCD Picture I've Ever Seen
    I just received this TV today and am more than pleased. The picture is brilliant, and setting it up with my progrssive scan DVD player was a snap. The picture is EXCELLENT. Highly recommended. The 23-inch size is larger than I expected, it really fills up the rooms with picture and sound.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than I imagined!!
    I shopped around for a couple of weeks and looked at several brands.I thought the Samsung had the best picture and was $150-$200 less than comparable brands (Sony).I looked for the best price on the Web, and found it for just under $850 at some internet sites.On a whim, I checked Amazon and was blown away.It was around $850 from a Amazon (a reputable dealer), PLUS I could return it within 30 days if there were any problems.None of the other Web dealers offered that.So I ordered it, paid a paltry $16 for shipping and it arrived 4 days later in perfect condition.

    I set it up, hooked it into my HD cable box (ComCast) with component cables (I still need to get the HDMI cable) and tuned in a HD channel.I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!!It was far better than I imagined.I tuned in Pulp Fiction on HD-HBO and could actually see the individual hairs on Samuel L Jackson's fro!The color contrast was brilliant.

    Now, like most LCD TVs the picture quality is just OK on the non-HD broadcasts, but I'm willing to live with this for now b/c most channels are moving to HD.

    You can't go wrong with this TV or the price/experience with Amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars paleale1
    I'm not sure how I lucked out with deal but I'm not going to complain.I went to Circuit City to look for a 20+ inch LCD TV and compared 10-15, really leaning towars the Sony or Samsung models.When I was about to leave the salesperson asked if I had seen the LNR238W yet.They hadn't received any in the store yet but it was on their website as a 'Coming Soon' item for $1,099.I went home and looked online for the model and was able to find it on Amazon for $850.00 with shipping.I bought it that same day and am glad I did.The best part of this TV by far is the picture quality.It's gives a nice crisp picture on any channel and handles fast motion with ease.The only issue I have is that it doesn't provide wall mounts that will work with this model, so for now I have it on it's base.All in all, it was a great deal and I'm surprised that Amazon is now asking $1,000 for the same model two weeks later. ...

    Catlog: CE
    Manufacturer: Samsung
    Sales Rank: 10704

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Samsung's HL-P5063W displays 50 inches of inviting widescreen viewing, elegantly framed in an ultra-light, thin-bezel cabinet. Weighing under 78 pounds and standing less than 15 inches deep, the high-definition-ready HL-P5063W offers more screen and less bulk. But it offers more than just quantity of screen: it's also engineered for quality.

    The secret to this DLP (Digital Light Processing) projection set's quality is its Emmy-winning technology from Texas Instruments. Samsung has combined its proprietary Cinema Smooth Gen 3 HD light engine and advanced optic enhancements with a single, postage-stamp-sized Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) capable of generating high-definition video images with film-like resolution, deep blacks, and robust colors. Samsung's Cinema Smooth light engine enhances brightness while ensuring an incredible 1,500:1 contrast ratio.

    Texas Instruments' DMD panel is immune to the factors that can cause other displays to deteriorate with use, imparting a longer life expectancy than that of cathode ray tube (CRT) sets, plasma display panels, and liquid crystal display systems (LCD, LCoS, HTPS).

    A host of advanced digital interfaces and video inputs make non-issues of connectivity challenges and future proofing. Hang it, mount it, rest it on a stand, or move it just about anywhere, anytime. The screen's surface is nearly 100 percent reflective, and its lightning-quick switching speeds make it twice as fast as earlier designs and nearly 1,000 times faster than competing micro-display technologies.

    The HL-P5063W's automatic digital-format conversion system converts any input (whether DTV, analog TV, or XGA computer sources at 1080i, 720p, 480p, or 480i) to a progressive, 16:9 widescreen image with a 1,280 x 720 pixel count. A 3D Y/C digital comb filter dramatically reduces image-edge artifacts while improving transition detail, and the set's HD ultra-fine-pitch (.155 mm) screen further clarifies images, especially when you're viewing high-resolution sources like DVD and HDTV.

    Samsung's Cinema Smooth Film Mode 3:2 Pull Down correction circuitry addresses digital distortion in 480i (interlaced) video signals generated from 24 frames-per-second film.

    Finally, Samsung DNIe video enhancer (Digital Natural Image engine) works with all analog NTSC and wideband video signals for improvements in contrast, white level, and picture detail, incorporating digital noise reduction to improve lower-quality sources.

    The set offers digital-video inputs in 2 formats. A DVI-HDTV interface with HDCP copy protection permits all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with an analog interface, and an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) jack channels both digital audio and video to simplify connections with newer DTV set-top boxes and DVD players by reducing hookups to just a single cable and plug.

    Other inputs include dual HDTV component-video inputs (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) for high-definition satellite receivers, HDTV tuners, and HD cable boxes with component video outputs (Y, Pb, Pr); 3 each composite- and S-video inputs; and 2 RF coaxial inputs for antennas or older VCRs or cable boxes. An audio/video output permits hookup with an external device such as a surround-sound receiver.

    A 15-watts-per-channel (x2) audio system with a pair of 2-way speakers comes with built-in SRS TruSurround XT, which simulates compelling surround sound through any stereo playback system, including headphones and the TV's speakers.

    Last but far from least, onboard 2-tuner PIP with side-by-side split-screen viewimng grants convenient simultaneous viewing of 2 TV programs, while a supplied universal remote control permits control of the TV, a DVD player, a VCR, and a tuner/surround receiver.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Samsung's fourth-generation plasma television, the 42-inch SP-P4251, uses the company's proprietary electronic chassis and its latest DNIe picture-enhancement circuitry to deliver outstanding brightness, contrast, and overall picture clarity. Use it for home theater and use it for your PC--it's perfect for both. It comes with a pedestal stand and a pair of built-in NTSC tuners for split-screen and PIP viewing (small, large, double). Built-in analog tuners allow you to connect an analog RF signal cable or antenna directly to the set and watch standard-definition TV right out of the box.

    With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the SP-P4251 is a mere 3.4 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

    The set boasts an incredible contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a brightness rating of 1,000 cd/m2. With every scene, the picture is clear and vivid, capturing and revealing every detail, even in bright light. The set's picture-frame design is finished in luxurious aluminum and acrylic with contrasting tones of sliver and black. The use of these colors and materials help eliminate glare and facilitate comfortable viewing, freeing your eyes to focus only on the picture.

    The set's panel construction is calibrated for better performance and greater durability than earlier plasma models--even surpassing the longevity of prior-generation CRT sets, offering a 50,000-hour panel life (viewing time under normal conditions, after which picture deterioration may occur).

    Samsung's exclusive Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) combines a Motion Optimizer, Contrast Enhancer, Detail Enhancer, and Color Optimizer to deliver a vivid, lifelike picture. With the Motion Optimizer, fast-moving images are rendered with more natural-looking motion, without blurring or noise. DNIe's Detail Enhancer analyzes video elements to produce sharper detail, clear image separation, and natural edge transition. The Color Optimizer gives colors lifelike realism while making whites more accurate and skin tones more natural. The Contrast Enhancer gives you deeper, richer blacks with greater detail and more natural whites.

    In addition to component (Y, Pb, Pr) inputs for an HD set-top box, PC, andDVD player, the set also offers an DVI-HDTV (Digital Visual Interface) jack for the best possible resolution in a direct digital connection. In keeping with the slim profile of the Plasma TV, AV jacks are on the side so that, even after installation, peripherals such as video players, camcorders, and other AV equipment can be easily connected.

    Built-in speakers powered by 12 watts per channel means your movies and TV programming will sound great even without a standalone multichannel surround system. Helping out in the surround-effect department, SRS TruSurround XT incorporates these features: TruSurround 6CH Surround Effect, TruBass Virtual Woofer Effect, Dialog Clarity Virtual Center Effect, and WOW Stereo Enhancement.

    Wall mounting is optional using Samsung's WMN4240 wall-mount kit.

A 3D Y/C digital comb filter dramatically reduces image-edge artifacts while improving transition detail, and the set's HD ultra-fine-pitch (.155 mm) screen further clarifies images, especially when you're viewing high-resolution sources like DVD and HDTV.

    Samsung's Cinema Smooth Film Mode 3:2 Pull Down correction circuitry addresses digital distortion in 480i (interlaced) video signals generated from 24 frames-per-second film.

    Finally, Samsung DNIe video enhancer (Digital Natural Image engine) works with all analog NTSC and wideband video signals for improvements in contrast, white level, and picture detail, incorporating digital noise reduction to improve lower-quality sources.

    The set offers digital-video inputs in 2 formats. A DVI-HDTV interface with HDCP copy protection permits all-digital rendering of video without the losses associated with an analog interface, and an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) jack channels both digital audio and video to simplify connections with newer DTV set-top boxes and DVD players by reducing hookups to just a single cable and plug.

    Other inputs include dual HDTV component-video inputs (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) for high-definition satellite receivers, HDTV tuners, and HD cable boxes with component video outputs (Y, Pb, Pr); 3 each composite- and S-video inputs; and 2 RF coaxial inputs for antennas or older VCRs or cable boxes. An audio/video output permits hookup with an external device such as a surround-sound receiver.

    A 15-watts-per-channel (x2) audio system with a pair of 2-way speakers comes with built-in SRS TruSurround XT, which simulates compelling surround sound through any stereo playback system, including headphones and the TV's speakers.

    Last but far from least, onboard 2-tuner PIP with side-by-side split-screen viewing grants convenient simultaneous viewing of 2 TV programs, while a supplied universal remote control permits control of the TV, a DVD player, a VCR, and a tuner/surround receiver.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great camera- need extra storage and battery
    This thing is awesome. It's smaller and lighter than my RIM Phone! Easy to throw on the charging station, grab and go. Something that never happend w/my old Video Camera. Had to grab the whole bag, overnight charge of the battery, etc... This thing charges in an hour or two.Quality of the LCD is excellent, even on the soccerfield under direct sunlight.Quality of the video, even on normal (has 2 higher settings) is good.

    Downsides: only 2 I can come up with. Definitely need to buy extra memory cards.If you are going to take on vacation w/out your laptop to download the video to, then you'll probably want to buy another 2GB's.That would give you 2-3 hours of video over a week trip.Also, you'll need an extra battery. It's only good for about an hour (I run through it in a single 8yr old soccer game).Problem right now is that I can't find an extra battery to order anywhere.Accessories aren't really out yet (as of end of May).So, plan on another $300 to make it really livable.That all said, it's the coolest gadget I own. Haven't tried the helmet cam yet, but am already planning it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Cool
    I got this to record ATV riding adventures. It was this or the new super small Sony mini dv cam. I went with this because I think the mini dv cam would not hold on the trail with all the dust.
    I have had this for a few days to play with so far. I bought a 1gig scan disk card with it. It will record 63 minutes on the lowest 620x480 setting with the 1 gig card. The video quility is good on the lowest setting. I edited it with I-movie on my Mac and burnd a dvd and it looks great on the normal tv.
    I could not get it to work with my windows vedio editing softwere ( Pinnacle and Screenblaster) but It does work with windows movie maker.
    You may want to bump up to the super fine setting if you want HD quality. I only get 22 minutes with the 1gig card on the higest settings.
    The external lens is cool. It come with a head and arm band. The extrem sports guys will love this for recording thier crazy stuff.
    Overall I'm happy with it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good for its intented purpose
    I plan to use the Samsung sc-x105l for cycling (MTB, Road and Motorcycle) trips.I've had the unit a few days and familiarized myself with the controls.Fumbling for setup and features is always a battery burner so I try to be proficient before giving a real-life judgement on battery life.

    I did a road bicycle test yesterday in 56 degree weather, starting with a full charge (I had cycled the battery once prior to this), the image quality was set for 352 dpi at "normal".Two higher quality settings are available this is the lowest and most battery efficient.Electronic Image Stabilization was turned on which also uses more power.The LCD display door was closed and I used the external remote camera.

    According to the manual, I should have gotten ~80 .minutes, the varible was the EIS, there is no mention of how much that lowers battery life.My actual battery life was 48 minutes.About half of what the manual stated.

    Image quality at 352/normal was fair.When a car zipped past me, the image was not clear enough to read a license plate from 30 ft away during playback, even going frame by frame.Recording at higher resolution should help this but more testing required.

    The good news was how much of the 512mb internal memory I had used in 48 minutes, which was only 95mb.I feel by increasing the resoltuion (which uses way more memory and some battery) an equal amount of memory and battery can be consumed yielding about 30 minutes of quality video.

    30 minutes may not sound like much but frankly, 30 minutes of home moives is usually more than most people can take.I'll carry a spare battery and 1G memory stick top tranfer during longer trips.

    BTW, the unit is amazingly small and light, build quality is sturdy.That is a big plus for the intended audience of this unit.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Wait for Improvements
    I was very excited to receive this camera. My intent was to use it for skydiving video, after all I first saw the advert for it in Parachutist magazine. Anyway, I had it for about 1 week before I sent it back. It went through batteries very quickly and captured relatively grainy and dark video and stills. It takes several seconds to ready for video or stills and if I kept it in the ready mode for too long (20 min) the battery was about gone! The lense provided a pretty narrow field of view. It is good for standard back yard applications but as an "extreme sports cam" it is not ready for the quick and constant action of up close "extreme sports". Only the external optical cam eye is water resisitant. The rest of the cam will break if exposed to heavy moisture/rain/water. Another point of contention, I early purchased this unit from Amazon for $699. By the time it was delivered the price was already down to $569.00 from Amazon! Bottom line.....Wait till it is improved and the price settles down.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointed
    I wanted to use this product to document sports and other activities and expected that the video could show the times and dates when these activities were observed.However, although the camera has a time and date function, these items cannot be made to appear on the video.

    The camcorder has a separate camera module for mounting on a helmet, etc., but the picture quality does not match that of the main camera, which makes use of the separate module inadequate for the purposes I had in mind when ordering this particular unit. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Returned it with reluctance...
    I bought this camera to replace our 7 year old VHS-C camcorder. It had most of the features that I was looking for: MiniDV, Optical zoom greater than 10x, batterly life greater than 1 hour, LCD geater than 2.5", built-in light, and memory card for digital pictures.

    I returned it for one main reason- video quality is equal to that of my current camcorder. It gets worse under certain circumstances. (Disabling DIS didn't improve the picture quality.)

    Every feature that was attractive to me turned out to be inadequate. Large LCD screen, but the image is not pleasing. Built-in video light barely lights closeby objects. No facility (shoe) to place external light or flash.

    Still images are another big disappointment. I realize that I shouldn't expect great still pictures from a camcorder, but I don't think they should come out this blurry, dull, and hazy.

    Memory card slot can accept various different media (SD, memory stick, etc.) - I think this is a very neat feature.

    I was amazed by Nite Pix feature. Yes, you can record video in absolute darkness, but the objects have to be within close proximity (6 feet or so).

    Fading option (between footages) is extremely disappointing. You have to keep the fade button pushed until the image fades out, then push the standby button, and then release the fade button. You have to do the same when you start recording again. Completely manual operation.

    We own many Samsung products and I am very satisfied with each one of them. This product is not going to change my opinion on Samsung.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Features, Great Price
    I love this camcorder. First off, it's a great deal. I did a lot of research and found this to be the best deal out of the lower cost camcorders. The 107's brother (the 105) is also a good camcorder but the features of the 107 really puts it over the top. The large LCD is great. Playback is awesome on the huge screen. The photo feature is nice to have but I would still use a digital camera in most cases. It can also record MPEG4 with audio. The low-light feature works great. The audio is great and has an input for mics or music. The analog input is great and pretty easy to use. It's a good way to get old home videos on your computer without a capture card. Also, despite other reviews, I think the picture looks pretty good. One tip of advice is to only use the DIS when you have to. If you leave it on that's when it's starts to look grainy. I don't know what else to say. Too many features to mention. Great camera. Would suggest to anyone.

    Pros:
    Large 3.5" LCD for great playback
    Analog Input to save all those old videos
    Great Night Recording
    Great Audio
    Microphone/ Audio Input
    Picture looks more than fine for most people
    Photo and Video recording on memory card

    Cons:
    Light isn't that bright
    Video can look a little grainy but mainly when DIS is on

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Features and good price
    After much research on the internet and in stores, I chose the Samsung SCD107....had it for a week and have been very pleased. All buttons and menus are easy to use. Picture and LCD view are average....very impressed with "nightpix" feature for shooting in the dark....you can shoot in total darkness, though it is a little grainy. Video looks very good hooked up to the TV whether it is in sunlight or indoors. Have also had no problem with tape insertion, read you manual and you will be fine. All in all I am very pleased with my selection.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good entry-level cam
    I found this DV camera to be an excellent product for the entry-level consumer. I wanted to try my hand at amateur moviemaking, amd picked this camera up cheap at Target, and so far, I've had no problems.
    The picture quality is crisp and clear, although if you're looking for a particularly truer, more colorful picture, you would do best to upgrade to a 3 CCD camera.

    Battery life is about the same as comparable models. The LCD viewscreen is big and bright, but the viewing angle could be a little wider- sometimes it can be tricky to tell how bright or dark your recorded video will be based on what angle you're looking at the screen with. Luckily, the little viewfinder does not share this problem, and you get londer battery life if you use it.

    The package does not include a ieee firewire cable, so be sure to pick one up (a 4-pin-to-6-pin one) if you want to upload video to your computer for editing. When I got the cable, I had no problems importing video onto my Mac with iMovie.

    As for the cassette-insertion problem outlined in one of the other reviews, yes, the way to insert a cassette could be a bit more self-explanatory, so I can see how some users might try to force the cassette tray back in and break this thing, but if you're patient and use your noggin, you'll realize it's not that complex. The camera opens, a tray come out, and a little caddy pops up. You put the cassette in the caddy, *then gently push the caddy back down into the tray*. The tray will then automatically retract back into the camera and you can close it up again. Pretty simple.

    1-0 out of 5 stars My first review!
    The is my intial review of the product. After extensive search, I could find only one other review out there. I bought this camcorder today (5/15/04)and rushed home to try it out. I powered it up, opened the "funky" tape tray, located inconveniently at the bottom of the camcorder, and inserted a tape. Following the directions closely, I attempted to close the tray. I NEVER applied any undue force, just pushed the "push to close" button. Nothing happened! The camera continued to "whirrrr" around inside. I pulled the tape back out and tilted to camera to look inside. When I did a small pin and gear fell out onto my countertop. Disturbing to say the least. It is going back tomorrow to Target. I will probably drive over to Best Buy to re-purchase it, along with an extended warrantee! I'll keep you all posted! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent monitor with no compromises
    I spent several weeks researching monitors, both online and by viewing them in local stores. A few things became quickly apparant:

    * Most stores demo monitors nowadays in HD mode. This is great if you've already switched to HD, but makes it difficult to judge a monitor's performance on an SVHS signal.
    * The offbrand monitors really don't look as good as the name brands. Side by side it was clear that the Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sharp, Samsung looked better than the less familiar brands. This mostly in terms of contrast and color. The name brand monitors looked pretty much identical.
    * Many of the high end TV's (Sony, Toshiba) don't have PC input - a critical factor in my choice.
    * Many of the high end monitors (such as Viewsonic), don't have the best quality or support on TV signals.

    I decided to try the Samsung based on a number of key features:

    * Speakers under the monitor saves space (I needed to fit into the space of a 27" TV)
    * Seemed to emphasize TV features and quality.
    * Consumer Reports for other Samsung LCD TV's indicated average standard TV performance (none of the sets they checked rated excellent, only a few above average).
    * PC input

    Hookup and setup were simple. Like most LCD monitors, it had a slight red bias out of the box, but it was easily adjusted. Samsung's DNIE enhancement is not a gimmick. They have a demo mode that shows you the corrected and uncorrected image. What's most interesting is not that the corrected image is better (you'd expect that) but that the uncorrected image is so familiar - it looks just like the display I saw on the off-brand monitors.

    I don't yet have an HD signal, but was able to check a high resolution image using a PC and it looked excellent (as one would expect).

    The really pleasant surprise is how good it looked on SVHS input (coming in from a DirectTV box). When using Zoom mode to watch a letterboxed movie, the quality of the image at normal viewing distance is stunning. You have to get up close (within 3-4 feet or so) to begin to see the digital scaling artifacts.

    Another pleasant surprise was the effectiveness of the dynamic contrast system. I used the home THX adjustment system included on newer DVD's (like The Incredibles). On my plasma set, it took quite a bit of adjustment to get the brightness and contrast right. On this set, it was dead on right out of the box.

    Component video off a DVD player looked as good as my plasma set. The four video modes (wide, panoramic [a smart stretch], zoom and 4:3) worked as expected. I don't have a standard cable connection, but tried out the tuner using a rabbit ear antenna and it looked like what you'd expect from a standard TV - great on strong signals, lousy on weak ones.

    One of the results I was hoping for most was delivered in spades - the location of this set has very poor lighting and the TV it is replacing had horrific glare and reflection issues. I no longer notice any obvious glare or reflections (except off the shiny black bezel, which doesn't interfere with my viewing).

    In terms of flaws, I haven't found anything significant yet. My only small gripe is that the picture mode setting is not on the main set of buttons on the remote but hidden under a plastic slide. That's a control you use all the time and it should be more prominent.

    I also did a fair amount of research on where to purchase the set. There are lower cost places online, but be careful - many of them have terrible customer reviews. Others charge inflated shipping rates - one store wanted $140 to ship the set. At about $25, Amazon was the lowest cost shipper I found. Also, the extended warranty available from Amazon is much less expensive than that available from other vendors. But the final factor that led me to get it through Amazon was the return policy. Almost none of other vendors allow returns of this set. Amazon, if I read their policy correctly, allows return of sets below 27 inches, and this is a 26 inch set. Fortunately, this one's a keeper. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    If you're after state-of-the-art picture and sound, Samsung's DVD-HD941 is a prime candidate for your home theater. The DVD player packs everything from Faroudja DCDi-enhanced HD component-video and HDMI digital-video outputs to sophisticated high-definition upconversion (for high-definition and HD-ready TVs) and processing abilities for the audio-only SACD (Super Audio CD) and DVD-Audio formats.

    DCDi technology offers higher resolution and sharper images, with few motion artifacts.
    The player uses Faroudja's DCDi (Directional Correlation Deinterlacing) technology, which is designed to eliminate the jagged edges along diagonal image lines resulting from video interpolation. DCDi monitors image-edge transitions and fills in the gaps between frames. The player upconverts standard-definition material (480i, what we have on conventional TV) to enhanced- and high-definition quality (480p, 720p, 768p, or 1080i, depending on your HDTV). The result: higher resolution from conventional sources and sharper images with few motion artifacts. The player's HDMI digital-video output may be used for lossless video transmission between the player and compatible TVs and computer monitors, and the player comes with an HDMI-to-DVI converter for use with DVI-compliant devices.

    HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver) with an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). HDMI supports SD, ED, or high-definition (HD) video, plus multichannel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

    SACD and DVD-Audio media both offer super-high-fidelity sound. DVD-Audio discs provide 192 kHz/24-bit multichannel and stereo sound, high storage capacity, and unique bonus materials not available on regular audio CDs. These discs often have compressed Dolby Digital soundtracks for listening on standard DVD players, but true DVD-A decoding is required for full sonic appreciation. Depending on the disc, Sony's proprietary SACD format provides multichannel and/or stereo sound, often presented in a dual-layer format compatible with both standard CD players (at standard resolution) and SACD-equipped players like the DVD-HD941 (for full-resolution playback).

    As an antipiracy measure, the DVD-HD941 performs its own decoding of both DVD-Audio and SACD signals, passing high-resolution analog, not digital, audio to your integrated amplifier or surround receiver. This means you'll need an audio/video receiver with multichannel analog-audio inputs to appreciate multichannel DVD-A and SACD releases.

    A set of stereo and a set of multichannel analog-audio outputs route audio from DVD-A/SACD media as well as from Dolby Digital- and DTS-encoded DVDs to you’re A/V receiver. If you're not planning to use the DVD-A/SACD capability for multichannel programming, both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each of RCA coaxial and Toslink optical) for simpler connection with your receiver. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Early Adopters Pick: November 2003. The world's first portable DVD player with a 12-inch LCD screen.

    Pushing the limits of portability, Samsung's widescreen DVD-L1200 DVD player manages to pack a laptop-rivaling 12-inch TFT LCD screen into a chassis standing a mere inch high when folded. Enjoy the best of your movies, music, and digital photography through the player's multiformat playback abilities, including MP3 and JPEG image CD-Rs and CD-RWs as well as standard DVD-Videos, DVD-Rs, and commercial CDs.

    The whole family can listen, too, through either the unit's inline stereo speakers or its generous three .125-inch headphone jacks. Spatializer virtual surround simulates enveloping sound effects through two channels, and motion zoom allows extreme magnification of selected screen areas, without distortion, even while a movie is playing.

    The screen displays discs using 480p progressive scanning (named for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image), creating a high-resolution picture with sharper images and fewer motion artifacts than conventional portables.

    Other great features include screen inversion, which flips the widescreen picture vertically so you can mount the player upside down, as in a kitchen or an RV, and Samsung's Smart Screen Brightness Control, which monitors ambient light and adjusts the LCD's backlight accordingly to improve clarity and contrast and extended your battery life. The unit's rugged disc bay ensures that the show goes on no matter how you position the player.

    Composite- and S-video outputs let you hook the player up with your home television, while its coaxial digital-audio output will channel discrete, 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound to a range of audio/video receivers and surround speaker setups. For extra convenience, the AV output doubles as a switchable AV input, letting you hook up a camcorder or gaming device for portable big-screen viewing.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not worth its price
    This is the best portable player out there? Really? I owned this for about two weeks and decided it wasn't worth its price.

    The DVD player comes neatly packed inside the box with all its accessories mention in the specs except that it comes with a soft leather case. The player has a huge display at 12.1" and looks like a laptop when closed. The design is thin and light and can easily be carried around while watching. The gray finish is sleek and looks high-tech but when viewed on bright light the finish looks cheap reminds me of a bad paint job at an auto shop. You can tell around the CD lid the paint is rough makes it look cheap and it also looks like some dirt or dust got in while in the process of drying the paint. Samsungs logo could have looked better if they only embedded their logo in silver like what Sony always does with their TVs. I'm not sure what kind of factory they have but it looks like they better start paying their workers more and establish quality control.

    The player was a little hard to open; you can't open the player with one hand. It forces you to open it slowly. The CD lid feels cheap, it sprang quickly once ejected to reveal its lens. I looked under it and saw just a thin spring that's doing all that. I imagined in the long run that thing is going to give up. The Power button is coated with chrome which was a good idea. It saves the paint from fading from over used. The only thing annoying about this button is you have to press it several times to turn it off, sometimes pushing it down for a few seconds.

    The picture quality suffers from bad black level. Imagine watching a movie that takes place in darkness and instead of the night being black it's gray. I tested a couple of CGI animation and it looked too bright that everything looked washed out. Significant lost of detail was obviously lost in bright scenes. Picture adjustments didn't work too well. Low light settings were way too low that a lot of detail in the picture was lost. Inside light settings provided the picture more sharpness and brightness but edges were exaggerated. Outside settings provided more color to the picture but looked unnatural. Standard was the best picture it provided.

    The sound quality sounded equalized, music and dialog sounded clear but there was little or no bass response strong enough to scare you on scenes with guns or explosions. Samsung could have provided a small bass module if they could not fit it in the player's thin body. Not even the headphones could deliver good bass and I was using a studio monitor headphones. There is an audio output so you can hook it up to your Home Theatre setup but who the heck wants to do that on a 12" screen? Good for playing music though. The player's mp3 file supports only 8 characters which is ridiculous. you probably have to rename every file to make it readable on the menu.

    You could plug in your game console to this player or plug in your video camera. Samsung provided jacks but not adapters. You can also use it as a stand alone DVD player but no progressive output. Only the built-in screen has this feature. You can view still images in jpeg format. The slide show lags reminds me of an old 486 computer. quality was okay but not better that my LCD monitor on my desk.

    Now for the worst part this player still has problems with subtitles. I read some reviews that this was also an issue on their previous models. I looked in the players menu and found that there was no option to turn this off. Options are Automatic only and numerous foreign languages to choose from as a default for the players subtitles to display automatically upon inserting a DVD. Now what's really weird about this is it only happens when the player is plugged in an outlet. But when it runs on battery subtitles remains off. Go figure. A design flaw or maybe just a Korean thing since this player is made in Korea. The Koreans figure it will be very convenient for them since many of them don't speak English. They could have made a Korean version and a US version.

    The player plays everything as stated in specs. It doesn't support Video CD. I called their support if there was a firmware that can fix this but the guy responded "NO" and he said it's being phased out. It's too bad if you have a collection of adult movies on VCDS you won't be able to watch them or hard to find titles not on DVD.

    I just hope Samsung is listening and fix these problems if they want to be the best. But if you can live with these issues then you will be very happy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Player
    When I got this player I wasn't expecting a lot. But when I popped in a disc pressed played, I was totally impressed. The sound quality coming from the small speakers is the best I have ever heard form a portable player period. The sound is crisp, clear, music sounds amazingly clear, and the presence of vocals are excellent and never distorted on high volumes. The 12.1" high resolution screen has the best picture quality I've seen in a portable. I'm a very picky guy when it comes to picture quality this one impressed me greatly. It has four adjustments for different lighting conditions which worked very well.
    Colors are rich and natural and very bright reminds me of a plasma display.
    For this price it's worth it. You won't find a better quality even from a laptop, even the highest models I've seen won't match the quality of this unit both sound and picture. The build is pleasing to the eyes. The design is well thought of. The player supports every major format except DVDRAM no biggie. No one hardly uses that format anyways. It also supports Super Video CD. Plus it comes with a soft dark gray leather case, what a surprise that wasn't mention on the specs. My 11 year old son is constantly asking me to borrow it. Everyone is happy! My friends keeps saying "Cool" Wow! how much is that? If you're shopping for a portable DVD player and looking for quality get this one you won't get disappointed. This player is a keeper

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Simple Player
    Bought this unit so that my young daughter could watch her favorite dvds during airplane trips.

    So far, this unit does everything that it advertises. Excellent picture clarity, good quality, and overall performs well in bumpy situations. It has two earphone jacks so I can watch Wiggles with her (if I must), and has all the other features one expects from a dvd player.

    However, the best feature of this player is that I don't have to do a thing when my 4 year old daughter wants to watch a movie. It's light enough that she carries it around in her Barbie shoulder travel bad, and the controls are simple and familier enough that she can set it up, turn it on, get to the main menu, and play. Try that with a laptop (and I have the small Sony TR3A). All I do is sit there and grin.

    Only downside it that even with the headphones, on particularly noisy flights, the volume does not go up high enough to overcome the rather heavy ambient noise found in airplane cabins.

    But, my daughter doesn't seem to mind that much, and she enjoys using this thing thoroughly, making for very relaxing trips.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Big Screen Viewing in a Portable
    This portable DVD player is incredible. The 12-inch screen is a great size, and the picture is crystal clear. Amazing resolution. The surround-sound is also high quality whether listening through a headset or through the speakers. One thing that was a pleasant surprise is that there is a great case included with the DVD player. I don't see that listed anywhere on the specs. Now I know that some would say that this is so big and pricey, why not go ahead and get a laptop. Well, for one thing, I don't see many laptops in this price range that have this quality picture or sound. Plus, if you are in the market for a portable DVD player and you really want to be able to see the picture and enjoy the sound, this one is wonderful. 12 inches. What a great size screen. The adaptable lighting feature is very good, too. It adjusts for four different lighting situations to allow for the best possible picture. I am very happy that I bought it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best Portable DVD Player you can find
    This is no doubt the best DVD Player you can find, my favorite feature on this player is that the screen is 12". It also playes CD's and there are speakers for it that are really nice. The reason i took a star off is because it is missing a couple features and it is pricy.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Battery life and availability is a BIG problem.
    Pros - Nice and small and easy to carry. Software fairly easy to use. Middle of the road performance from an inexpensive camcorder.
    Cons - The lack of a video light makes the camera performance poor in low light.Still captures are low quality.
    Major Con - Battery life leaves a lot to be desired and additional batteries are very difficult to locate.This Camcorder has the smallest camcorder battery I've ever seen (SB-LSM80). I can only get between 40 minutes to an hour record time out of it, far short of what the manual claims. Then, it takes an hour and a half to fully re-charge which must be done in the camera since an external charger is not available.It also appears the battery only charges while the camera is off.I searched around and accessories are simply not available for this camera.Amazon.Com incorrectly lists the Samsung SB-L110 & Samsung SBL-220 batteries as accessories for this camcorder but the site is incorrect and the batteries are not interchangeable with the SB-LSM80 the unit uses.Neither Amazon.Com nor any of my local Samsung retailers carry extra batteries for this camcorder and a few did stock this very camcorder model.I had to order additional batteries from a Samsung Part distributor as that was the only place I could locate them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice but buy extra batteries!!!
    So I got this item and the first thing I did was charged the battery. After the battery was charged, I started to play with it to get used to the functions. So I played with the item for 15-20 minutes and turned it off.The next day, I took the camera to the motocross to watch my daughter race and when I went to start filming, the battery was dead.SoI went home to charge the battery and to read the manual to see if I was missing something.Come to find out, it states in the manual that if you leave the battery connected to the camera, the camera will use the battery's energy even with it off.So if you get this camera, remove the battery from the camera when you are not using it and the battery will stay charged.I have tested this and it works but its really not something that the consumer should worry about.Other than that, the camera is easy to use, great in size and weight and fits very well even in my large hand. ...
