SAMSUNG RELEASES 3 NEW DVD PLAYER MODELS
« on: May 12, 2002, 17:42 »
These are the new Samsung DVD player lineups. The DVD-S228 is already available at Harvey Norman Millennia Walk. You can click on the link to see the specs of the players.

FYI, the new models DO NOT support progressive scanning. For the S228 and S328K, the faceplate is reflective like those of Shinco 8700PS DVD Player.

All 3 models do not have VGA output.

Samsung is currently having a promotion - Samsug's "OLE!" Draw Promotion (5 Apr 02 - 30 Jun 02).

The DVD-S228 is retailing for $299 with free 5 DVD Titles Rental Vocuher, while the DVD-S328K is retailing for $399 with free 10 DVD Titles Rental Voucher.

An interesting point to note is that all 3 models proclaim to work with DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW.

Any DVD Player in today's market not supporting Progressive Scan is a major setback, as viewing DVDs in Progressive Scan is a must-have to fully enjoy the potential from the DVD Disc.

In this case, i would not recommend these new models to anybody.
