    Can someone explain why Samsung would release a DVD player this well received, get it well reviewed in just about every decent HiFi/DVD mag, and then discontinue it as soon as the reviews hit the shelves?

    I want a good, upscaling DVD player, with Xvid/Divx capability, they produce one that is great, and you can't buy it anywhere. Grrr! :suicide:

    The marketing bods at Samsung must be idiots, plain and simple.

    I know you can get them from PIXMANIA, but I don't like the look of them.

    Something this well reviewed should be everywhere, not nowhere.

    Any tips on another player that can do the same (with DVI/HDMI, Divx/Xvid and preferably with DVD RAM capability - can't believe the Samsung can't do that, as all their DVD Recorders are RAM players - another ludicrous choice on their part)

    Anyways, enough venting.

    Ditto. Only thing wrong is the euro plug, but that's quickly sorted.

    I would use Pixmania again.

    I do understand what you mean about the 745 & 945 though. Not the easiest machines to hunt down.
