The Samsung DVD611 high-resolution DVD player incorporates a 10-bit video digital-to-analog converter and a 96 kHz, 24-bit audio digital-to-analog converter to ensure precise playback and pristine audio quality from every disc. Left/right audio output terminals let you use the unit with a Dolby Pro Logic receiver, so the typical six-channel Dolby Digital signal is mixed down to a compatible Pro Logic signal. A 2x audio playback allows the soundtrack to be heard even when you are fast-forwarding the video at twice the normal speed. You can also magnify portions of any image either two or four times the normal size without affecting playback.

Standard S-video, composite-video, and optical digital audio outputs are included. The set of component-video outputs provides an optimum connection between the Samsung DVD611 and TV sets with component-video inputs. The full-function remote control comes with two AA batteries.

Samsung offers a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

Samsung is known for manufacturing quality TVs at affordable prices. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have the same success with their DVD players.
I brought this puppy home, attracted by both the low price and my satisfaction with my Samsung 27" TV.
Although the player performed satisfactorily while playing Tarzan, on other DVD's it seemed to skip over sections of the DVD at precisely the same point. I tried different DVD's, and this problem was consistent. The video and audio qualities were otherwise very satisfactory. This unit also has a zoom feature, very unusual for a player in this bargain price range. The remote is well designed, but the key pads are small.
But I can't see saving a few dollars and living with the skipping problem. Until Samsung addresses this issue, I suggest skipping their lineup and going with an equivalent model from Toshiba, Sony or Panasonic, the quality leaders. And Phillips has some very affordable models, and they seem to have licked some earlier Q/A problems.
After returning the Samsung I settled on the Toshiba SD-2200, and am confident that was the right choice for me.

Like a lot of people, I could not wait any longer to get my first DVD player... and being budget impaired... I was looking for a good player at a relatively low price.
Before I buy, I always research, including reading the reviews for the Samsung DVD611 DVD Player. Seemed like split vote between those who praise the price and features to those who had VERY bad experinces with this machine and were justifibly warning consumers...
That all said and done, I ordered the Samsung DVD611 DVD Player for myself, leery of problems, but lured by the low price...and hoped for the best...
And I must say... this DVD far exceeded my expectations. So far, the skipping problem (which occur on most DVD players) has been minimal. The picture and sound quality and variety of options are more than I anticipated. The remote is small and easy to use... and it's just cool!
So, say what you will about the Samsung DVD611 DVD Player. I for one and very happy with it and would purchase another as a gift. Find out for yourself. Then write your own review.

I am very pleased with my Samsung DVD-611. I have previously owned the Samsung DVD-709 which performed admirably. I own CDV's from Asia. The Samsung products output the PAL encoded signal from these disks with a good quality NTSC signal. I had tried playing these disks on the Philips DVD players, but Philips DVD players always output a PAL signal when the input source is PAL which, will does not sync correctly or produce correct colors on the American NTSC televisions. The Samsung DVD-611 is future proofed with DTS outputs. The component outputs include coaxial and optical. The remote is sophisticated yet simple to operate. The mechanism on the Samsung DVD-611 operates quietly. The Samsung DVD-611 includes sophisticated features like 2X and 4X video zoom and multiple levels of fast and slow motion. There is no need to pay more for a high quality DVD player.

I received a DVD611 recently as a birthday gift, but I'm returning it ... Every DVD that I've played in the machine has exhibited frame skips at least twice per movie. For me, this is annoying and disrupts the mood of a scene. I end up wondering where the skips will occur on each movie I play. The audio gain is also weak, at least through the analog RCA audio connectors (my TV doesn't support digital audio). I would recommend this machine only to uncritical neophytes for whom the low price is the primary purchase factor. They'll be impressed enough with the resolution and multiple connection options to disregard the skipping problem. However, if you think the machine's quirks would irritate you (as they did me), spend a little more money and move up to something else.

As a survivor of the Beta/VHS war, I waited as long as I could to take the dive into DVD. I really didn't have a lot of extra scratch and I am still jealous of my 1,000+ VHS titles, mostly studio editions. I figured that I had thirty days to let this baby prove itself and it did. The picture and sound are phenomenal on my 27" SONY with SONY Pro-Logic Surround Processor. Skipping has been almost non-existent, even after heavy use (yes, there have been one or two very slight 'freezes' on most discs but the sound stays on track so it's not a major inconvenience). Try this machine...I think you'll love it!

This is a no-frills player, but it does a nice job and offers lots of features - particularly DTS - at a very attractive price.
Some reviewers have had problems with skipping, but I had this problem with only one movie, and it was a bad disc, not the player.
The user interfaces could be better, and I wish they'd put more controls on the face of the unit instead of the remote (my four-year-old LOVES to hide daddy's DVD remote!), but overall I'd recommend this unit pretty highly.
For the price, you can't go wrong...but for the same price you CAN go wrong with other units.

I got the Samsung DVD-709 as a gift and it seemed to play DVD's well until we rented "Mystery Alaska." There were several scenes where the player would skip and then freeze. We thought it might be the DVD, so we exchanged it for the same movie at Blockbuster and found the same problems. It would even skip in the exact same scenes.
It has a lot of nice features like 32X FFWD and RWD. Also, 2X and 4X magnification. Not to mention DTS and Dolby Digital compatible. I just can't live with the skipping though.
I guess with a lower price you compromise quality. Sticking with the larger name brands like Sony, Pioneer, Panasonic, Toshiba, or Sharp seem like a much better and safer bet.
