My advice to anyone thinking of purchasing this dvd is DON'T. Since we purchased this product last December we have had nothing but problems with it. It has been repaired a number of times and is still not working properly. Samsung will only offer to repair this faulty machine even though it has not been "fit for purpose" since we purchased it and refuse to exchange it or refund our money. I have purchased many Samsung products in the past - 2 TV's, 2 dvd's, camcorder, fax machineand printers and have not had problems. This purchase and the resultant customer service we have received has totally destroyed my faith in this brand.
