<--Shop for a Portable DVD Player Here
So, you have $1100 to burn and need a DVD player with portable capabilities,
what would you get with this particular purchase?
For one, you will receive one of the most advanced portable DVD player's
available on the market which has been touted by Samsung to have the largest
"portable" DVD screen in the world.
Secondly, you will receive the owner's manual and appropriate warranty
and registration cards.
Need to use this tiny player for a home theatre system, no problem, Samsung
has included a video cable which allows you to hook up your video via
a S-Video, or a ordinary composite connector. Now, with respect to the
sound capabilities of this player, you will have two options. For one,
you will be able to connect to your TV or stereo system via a stereo cord
with component connectors. But what if you have a 5.1 home theatre system?
Well, this unit does have a digital out, but to take advantage of it,
you will have to buy an optional digital-out cable to connect to your
dolby prologic system.
Awwwww, a remote, or my house, "the godbox". If you are as
lazy as I am, having another aid in rendering my ass permanently welded
to the couch is a good thing. In my professional job, I walk close to
10 km a day, 7 days a week, so any excuse not to get up is a blessing.
Taking a closer look, you will see that this remote control has most
of the features of a full size remote even when it is only slightly larger
than your everyday credit card. In my opinion, keep a close eye on on
it, it could easily be lost due to its size.
