Product Description

Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD / VCR Combo

Amazon.com

With its high-end component-video DVD outputs, VHS recording and playback abilities, built-in MP3 decoding, and compatibility with JPEG image CDs and Kodak Picture CDs, Samsung's DVD-V4600 DVD/VCR combo is a conveniently slim entertainment dynamo. Now you'll be able to enjoy a slideshow of your digital pictures right on your television. It will play video-mode DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW discs, too, making it a great gift for family members with whom you'd like to share your home videos on DVD. This model also includes front-panel audio/video inputs so you can quickly and easily hook up a camcorder or gaming console.

Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVD-V4600 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 VCR delivers hi-fi stereo sound and quasi-S-VHS (SQPB) playback, which lets you view S-VHS cassettes--normally only playable on high-end S-VHS machines--in standard VHS resolution. The unit's 4-head design ensures smooth slow-motion play (forward and reverse) and clear still-frame images. Use the VCR's advance-record settings to make sure you never miss a favorite show or pertinent one-time broadcast.

Top-of-the-line component-video outputs (for DVD only) help minimize digital and line-scan artifacts on compatible advanced televisions, while composite- and S-video outputs bring DVD compatibility with nearly any television. The VCR output is composite-video and RF only. A set of left/right analog-audio outputs for both DVD and VCR components channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound DVD signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio outputs (one each optical and coaxial) for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver.

Another handy feature is EZ View letterbox eliminator, which lets you enjoy full-screen pictures on 4:3 aspect-ratio TVs--even when you're watching widescreen DVDs.

The VCR is noisy, it actually makes a vibration that affects the video qulaity during recording or playback of a pre-recorded tape.

The remote is not layed out very well, the on screen menu is confusing and difficult to navigate through.

I should have been clued in when I bought this unit, there were six units in boxes, two of them were open box specials (returns). You can probably guess why they were returned.

I'm returning this item and getting separate DVD and VCR units.

Verified Purchase
On "paper" this was the perfect unit for my bedroom for saving space and at a great price. I wanted buttons on the front, and it was made by a major manufacturer that I trusted. The VCR would not track. The DVD player constantly froze leaving a green screen. I regret that I did not read the reviews of others more carefully prior to my decision to buy. I looked only at the average number of stars in the rating.

I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with this unit. I already have a Samsung 3500, which works very well. The new "feature" for the 4600 (really anything above a 3650) is that the input needs to be changed to LINE when you want to watch a DVD/VHS; and changed BACK when you want to watch cable. As this was purchased for my 80 year old parents, they were too confused to have to keep changing back, and did not use the unit.
I called Samsung tech support (who were super), and they said they are getting a boat load of calls on this very issue. It seems it was easier/cheaper for their techies to develop with the consumer having to do the switching manually.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this model. There are too many other choices that work well and don't have this quirk.

Our DVD portion of the player broke (same problem as others have listed--freezes up and won't play anymore or just won't even load a DVD) within 6 months of the original purchase. We sent it in to be repaired under warranty. Was returned and broke within a month. Sent it back in and the company repeatedly refused shipment of the DVD/VCR unit even though we had followed all instructions on how to return it and included appropriate authorization numbers given to us when we called to set up service. We have invest way more in shipping than we ever should have in the first place to have this unit fixed. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We did not own a DVD player, and with since so many DVD's have extras such as commentaries and added footage, we decided it was time to buy one. Since our VCR had some age on it, we decided to get this DVD/VCR combo. First of all, it would not work at all on our 11 year old Magnavox TV, so we bought a new TV. This unit has lasted for 12 years now and still plays as nicely as always. The VCR tapes something every week and we still use it as long as it lasts.

I just picked up a Samsung DVD-V4600, and so far I'm fairly happy with it. The DVD player and VCR work as advertised, but there are a lot of "little" things that bug me about the player. Despite most of the on-line descriptions that I've read claiming that it can play MP3 discs, it can't. To be fair though, the box that it came in makes no claim of being able to play MP3s, just DVD/CD/CDR/JPG/VHS plus super VHS and a host of recordable DVD formats. I've tried them all out except super VHS and home-recorded DVDs (I don't have any of either) and everything I've tried (except MP3s) has worked fine. It was interesting watching a slide show of all the JPG pictures I took with my digital camera last year.
The couple small things that bug me: The remote has no "previous channel" button, if you're using the player as a substitute cable box. This is most irritating, because I tend to flip back and forth between channels a lot, and it's tedious having to constantly type in the channel numbers. Also, if the DVD you're watching supports multiple viewing angles, the player puts an annoying icon of a camera in the top right corner of the screen, and there's no way to get rid of it as far as I can tell. And lastly, if you want to use the "zoom" feature for DVDs (which comes in handy if you like to read the credits in movies on a non-big-screen TV), you have to step through two or three menu levels to get to "zoom" - there's no button for it on the remote.
I've only had the player for about a week, so I'll probably find more little annoyances, but so far I can live with it. It's not a bad DVD/VCR, all in all.

This machine is simply unreliable. When I played VHS tapes, a number of the tapes appeared distorted on the screen, with the top portion of the image wavy. This could not be fixed using the tracking button on the machine. I am returning mine to the vendor.

There are some limitations to consider when purchasing this unit.

1. Doesn't play VCD disks. If you burn CD-R video on your computer, this cannot play it.

2. Doesn't directly record from DVD to VCR, but you can wire the input/output to do the recording from the aux input. If you do this, I found it will copy copyprotected DVDs to the VCR.

3. Doesn't display seconds on the front panel display, so it makes it a little difficult to see if you're actually rewinding since you don't see seconds go by.

It does a fine job of DVD and it remembers where you stopped the DVD, even if you turn off the unit. The VCR can step forward at various rates, but cannot step backwards.
