"...discs. If you buy a Samsung product make sure you keep your receipt as the only way to get service under warranty is to provide the original receipt, if you have not got it, then they will not process the claim. You have been warned. The whole process took nearly 5 weeks from taking the player in to get the replacement.
Lets hope this ones lasts more than 7 months!!!
This model has great style and looks really good and goes well with any product.
