Customer Reviews of Samsung DVD-C500 DVD Player
This upconverting DVD player is very small and slim and lightweight. The quality of the picture on my new plasma TV is excellent. I compared the same DVD played on my previous (5 years old) Samsung player with this player and the difference was obvious. I'm guessing this improvement is due to two reasons: the upconverting process plus the HDMI output. The player also has Component and Composite outputs, but the picture is much better using an HDMI cable to the TV. One slim cable for excellent picture and sound compared to the five bulky cables required by my previous player -- that is also a big improvement.
Great price and user friendly8/6/2012
This dvd player is exactly what I needed, it does a great job with an HDMI cable picture is very clear and operation is as simple as can be,
With my new Samsung 1080p 120Hz 40" LCD TV, DVD's look better with the Samsung upconverting player than with the generic 720 player. The pans look smoother than in the cinema, and it is compact and easy to use with an intuitive menu.
Does not support DivX10/7/2010
This unit does not support DivX. The DVDC550 does, but not the DVDC500. DivX support was the only reason I bought this. Needless to say, I'm disappointed.
Excellent DVD player for the price10/2/2010
I found an excellent player that had an HDMI connection for under $40. Very pleased.
