Samsung's DVD-P241 features high-end progressive-scan component-video outputs, built-in MP3 decoding for your home-brewed CD compilations, and even compatibility with JPEG image CDs and Kodak Picture CDs. Now you can enjoy a slideshow of your digital pictures right on your television.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVD-P241 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

The DVD-P241 also performs 3:2 pulldown. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24-frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture. Another handy feature is the player's EZ View letterbox eliminator, which lets you enjoy full-screen pictures on 4:3 aspect-ratio TVs--even when you're watching widescreen DVDs.

A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

i was looking for a good, but cheap DVD player that i could use in my young son's room. There are a lot of no-name DVD players out there for a bit cheaper price but I guess I am still leery of buying anything with a name I don't recognize.

This Samsung player seems to be just the ticket. It's got a few more bells and whistles than you'd think in a player for around $50 bucks indlucing the EZ view letter box eliminator for small screen TVs, distortion reduction, and can play MP3's and Kodak picture CDs.

But I mainly got it because it's easy to use and cheap so if my young one does anything to it it's easily replaceable. Not a machine for your high-end TV but certainly capable of doing the job.

For guys like me that regularly watch DVDs on a small screen

(14") television, the EZ View Letterbox elimination option is

a real life saver. EZ View gives me the option of eliminating

letterboxing by expanding the center of the image and cropping

the sides, which is basically how Widescreen (16:9 ratio) movies

are "panned and scanned" to fit into a Fullframe (4:3 ratio)

television screen. This option makes it easier to view the

center of action in movies that don't have a Fullframe version

available. In particular, this feature made it possible to

properly view some of my favorite movies that are only avail-

able in a 2:35 ratio, such as Tora! Tora! Tora!, Zulu and The

Thin Red Line, without the image getting so compressed as to

be unviewable. I thank Samsung for giving us the ability to

make the trade off ourselves between image compression and

cropping off the sides of the movie.

Finally go tired of my 5 disk Kenwood DVD player (not progressive scan) and found this at Target. I hooked it up to my home theater, and the sound and video were incredible, the zoom feature allowing you to change from letter box to full screen had little distortion and the dolby digital worked perfectly.

Overall, an inexpensive namebrand dvd player which has performed consistently (as had my other samsung products). I would recommend this product.

Verified Purchase
This unit is truly impressive. It plays all media I have thrown at it and the sound and picture quality are great for the price.

The low price and high performance makes this a true bargain.

Good job Samsung!!! Thank You Amazon for great service as well.

Good entry level player with the quality of high-end models. Crisp, clear picture, excellent color rendering. Change image from widescreen to letterbox to zoom with one click E-Z View. Reliable playback for various media (DVD, CD, MP3 etc). Easy to use, sleek design, unbeatable price.

I bought this player from Best Buy. I tested DVDs, CDs, music CD-Rs, and mp3 CD-Rs. All worked fine initially. Two days later preparing for a Christmas Party, the player locked up after inserting the mp3 CD-Rs. The player normally shows a screen where you can see the folders and files. It locked on the background for this screen. I had to disconnet the power cord to the unit, and re-connect in order to retrieve the disc. The other types of media still play fine. I will be returning the unit for a different model/brand.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David on December 19, 2004
This player is fine for viewing on a HDTV. 480p is the standard for dvd signal and with progressive scan just enhances the picture so it looks better.With Component out and digital out this is a great buy. The claim that there is NO such player that can produce a HDTV picture from a dvd player is WRONG. If you want to spend alot more cash you can purchase the Toshiba Progressive Scan DVD Player with HDMI? Upconversion .

Video Upconversion 720p/1080i - HDMI can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV level resolution. Thus, the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution to nearly HDTV-quality with output resolutions of 720p or 1080i. This makes a DVD player with an HDMI? connection the perfect match for today's digital televisions. I give 4 out of 5,I just don't understand the HDTV Title for this Unit for advertising. I guess samsung is using progressive scan to target HDTV customers and telling them it's helping the picture out to look better on HDTVs.
