Product Description

Amazon.com

Enjoy the convenience of watching your favorite DVD movies while maintaining your VHS tape investment with the Samsung DVD-V4800 DVD/VCR combo. It also enables you to access MP3 digital audio and JPEG image files using the multiformat memory card reader. Other features include front A/V inputs, compatibility with CD-R/RW discs, and a 4-head VCR with digital auto tracking.

On the DVD side, the 10-bit digital-to-analog video converter is combined with carefully selected analog components to ensure accurate reproduction of the original DVD image. The EZ View letterbox eliminator enables the removal of the black letterbox bars on 4:3 TV screens with the push of a button on the remote control, while the Motion Zoom feature allows extreme magnification of selected screen areas, without distortion even as the movie is playing. With the 2x speed audio playback, you can easily find the exact moment on the disc that they are searching for.

The 4-head VCR offers a hi-fi audio system and an MTS stereo tuner system that deliver Dolby Surround compatible sound from encoded videotapes and stereo broadcasts. The digital autotracking feature automatically adjusts video-head position for optimum quality (manual adjustments are also available). The HQ and Luminance Noise Reduction (YNR) circuitry improve signal-to-noise ratio by as much as 1.5 dB for a signification improvement in playback quality. Jet Picture Search allows clear viewing of video at an incredible 7x normal play for SP tapes, and 21x SLP recordings.

The DVD-V4800's analog L/R audio terminals provide Dolby Surround-encoded audio for superb stereo sound, or complete surround sound when connected to a Dolby Pro Logic receiver. The Phantom Surround Processor can be used to deliver a rich simulated surround-sound effect through just two speakers, and is ideal when the DVD-V4800 is connected to a traditional 2-channel stereo television.

The component-video output is the ideal way to connect to either your analog and digital televisions. The DVD-V4800 also has 2 composite-video inputs (1 front, 1 rear), 1 composite-video out, 1 RF out, and 1 coaxial digital and 1 optical digital audio out.

The DVD-V4800 is compatible with DVD movie and CD audio discs, as well as CD-R/RW discs with MP3 digital audio and JPEG image format files. The multiformat memory card reader is compatible with Memory Sticks, SmartMedia, Secure Digital (SD), and MultiMedia (MMC) cards. Now you can show off your latest digital photos by simply inserting your camera's memory card into the DVD-V4800's card slot.

Tech Talk
Progressive scanning: Progressive scanning displays all the horizontal lines of a picture at one time, as a single frame. A progressive scanning DVD player converts the interlaced (480i) video from DVD into progressive (480p) format for connection to a progressive display. It dramatically increases the vertical resolution.

Component video: Video signals with three channels of separate information that make up the picture. There are a couple types of component video, such as R/G/B and Y/Cb(Pb)/Cr(Pr).

What's in the Box
Samsung DVD-V4800 DVD/VCR combo, remote control, 2 AA batteries, and printed operating instructions.

I bought the unit a few days ago and Works great.
DVD player plays all formats as mentioned. I have some CD-R/VCD/CD-RW from different countries and it could play it all.
VCR is pretty good too, however some noise through the coaxial.
Memory reader is a cool feature, reads Sony Memory Stick well. Slideshow is a good feature.
Universal Remote is nice, operates TV/VCR/DVD as well.

Compared to V4600 reviews, I think Samsung has done a good job with this model. It is compact and slick compared to some other brands.

Issue: "Memory Stick Pro" could not read Sandisk 256mb. Also, photoviewer in general is very slow.

This is a great value for money !

This is a piece of junk, in my opinion. I bought it because it was on sale at Best Buy for $140. I was excited because it was an early Christmas present for the kids, from their grandma.

I did not research it because I knew of others who had Samsung products, and never really had a problem. I really made a mistake in not researching, I usually do.

After three weeks, the DVD player broke, with the DVD now stuck inside- the VCR works, but there is a mind-altering flashing on the screen. My sister-in-law later informed me that she had this exact player- she bought hers in June. Her DVD player also broke. She researched and found that this is a very COMMON problem with this particular model. I wish I had known!

Please buy something else and don't waste your money!

Have had this for several years. The player actually works okay for both VCR and DVD use.

However, the remote control is so poorly designed, I rarely use the unit. The buttons are small, and as another reviewer commented, pressing menu takes you back to the main setup, and you have to start over. It's too bad, because as I said, I have had no technical issues with the DVD play, VCR play, or memory card. You will regret buying this unit. I use component hookup for my DVD, and have the sound connected to a Sony receiver control center. No technical issues at all. Still only a one. What a horrible remote.

So, as soon as I get it home, I only get sound from the right channel when using a DVD, but both when playing a VHS. So that means there's an internal fault somewhere with the DVD player. Also, I've never seen a DVD player where pressing Menu while a DVD is playing, brings you to the system menu, NOT the DVD's menu. That is ridiculous. My unit is definitely going back, and will be replaced with a Sony or something else NON-Samsung.

Verified Purchase
I purchased this because it appeared to be compatible with all formats of dvds including DVD+R-DL. It was. The problem was that it was difficult to control. The fast-forward and next-chapter were the same button and you had to remember whether you wwere to punch it once or hold it down. After a few months, I gave it to the Salvaton Army and bought another Sony.
