    I don't have a HD 850, but I did have a HD 950 which I returned. It was a complete joke. If you want to playback DivX files I would avoid this player. Also if you want a remote which isn't the size of a cat, and actually responds, then again don't get this player. I can't say I was overwhelmed by the HDMI, but it could be my TV's fault, it didn't appear to be any different to SCART! But I am blaming the player! Luckily (!) my component output didn't work at all so I could return it to RS.

    Avoid at all costs, apparently the Pioneer 575 is good, but it doesn't have HDMI...

    Hope this helps

    yes I have recently got the sammy hd850. no I didn't get the hdmi lead, and no the upscaling feature made the picture worse on my TV although the picture with the player at 576p is very good.

    I can't comment on the 850 but the 950 I saw came with two HD leads and upscaling seemed reasonable. However MPEG4 support was awful. In fact it shouldn't really be described as an MPEG4 player at all, it's so bad. DVDs OK though.

    I wouldn't buy one for myself.
