  1.  LOOKS GREAT BUT POOR PERFORMANCE

    Posted: 

    Bought this DVD player knowing about the freezing issue but had decided to give it a try as the reviews I had read were well over a year old and I would have thought Toshiba would have solved the problem by now.
    No such luck because within minutes of testing it out with a couple of different DVD's, the freezing started. Only for three or four seconds a time but enough for me to decide this DVD player's going back.
    I'm starting to believe you 'get what you pay for'. A DVD this inexpensive offering so many features seems too good to be true. In this instance, that sadly seems to be the case.

    I'll be dipping my hand in my pocket a little further on my next purchase!

  2.  GREAT LOOKS BUT POOR PERFORMANCE

    Posted: 

    I bought this TV to replace my 3 year old 14" Hitachi. There is nothing wrong with my Hitachi but I decided to buy a more modern TV with built in freeview. I realised that with the progression of visual technology, I could buy a 19" screen TV that had the same dimensions as my older box.
    My first impressions were good. Next to the older TV it looks fresh & modern with the classy black finish & nice build quality.
    However, switching it on I straight away noticed the picture quality was not on a par and the sound quality was very tinny.
    My older TV has 2 speakers running down either side of the screen but the Samsungs are hidden at the back and are alot smaller. I believe this is where the compromise is. To keep the 19" small enough to compete with 14" TV's dimensions, Samsung have had to cut one vital corner resulting in poor sound quality.
