I bought this machine because it had what i needed. DV in, VHS and DVD combined etc. Bought from Comet in the UK. Lasted 3 weeks and the player screwed up only playing with bright green lines across the picture and strobing. Engineer picked it up and I never saw it again. Now I'm trying their Sharp as an exchange machine. Watch this space and don't buy Samsung!! They don't sell it any more, a lot can happen in month.
