My new DVD player

Well, I know everybody is about BDs right now, but my video needs are pretty limited, and I'm fine with DVD (and DivX). My old player Philips recently stopped working well (I just can't keep knocking it that much anymore to make it read the disc So I decided to acquire a new one. And while normally nobody uses it but my little son, I wanted to have it as fancy as possible. (Well, you know -- sometimes the appliances are just part of interior and nobody cares about what they do and how they do it. :)

 And here it is Samsung DVD-H1080R.

While this one was rather expensive for its feature-set (normally, it's about $90+ in the Internet), I got it for a little bit over $60 (new one, not refurbished/reconditioned/...), and I think this is a fair price paid. Form factor is also important, by the way. ;) And it fits well with Samsung TV that my son has.
I'll keep an eye how this one works. I saw a number of complains that it doesn't work well with Samsung TVs through HDMI. Not in my case. It was flawless, just plug it out and in, and it just works. By the way, I never managed to run Philips through HDMI, as it had no sound whatever I'd do.
