Our take on the Samsung DVD-V2000

Samsung's DVD-V2000 gives you inexpensive DVD and VHS playback — but its great price isn't the only reason it deserves a place in your home theater. It's also a real workhorse, capable of playing DVDs, CDs, CD-Rs & CD-RWs, and MP3 CDs. Its Motion Zoom feature lets you zero in on the details of a scene while a DVD is playing. Missing a full 5.1-channel speaker setup? The Phantom Surround processor produces exciting surround effects from a pair of stereo speakers.

Plus, all that versatility's packed into one standard-sized component! This deck is great for bedrooms, guest rooms — anywhere you want VHS and DVD playback, but have limited space.

You'll love conveniences like front-panel A/V inputs (for easy camcorder hookup) and auto clock and channel set (no more blinking "12:00"!). You can even record onto VHS while you watch a DVD. Plus, the DVD-V2000 offers a feature you don't commonly see: Quasi S-VHS playback, for viewing Super VHS home movies or broadcast recordings at VHS-quality resolution.

Consumer Alert: This component has only an analog broadcast tuner and will require a converter box after February 17, 2009, to receive over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the Nation's transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

System Features

Auto Setup: The first time you connect this unit, or after an extended power outage, the Auto Setup procedure will automatically search for all active channels and set the clock. If Auto Setup was unable to find a local station to set the unit's internal clock, you may set the clock manually.

On-Screen Menus: The on-screen menu system allows you to set all functions for this unit. The on-screen menu language can be set to English, French, or Spanish.

Auto Power Off: You can set the auto power off to 1 hour (after the last button is pressed), 2 hours, or Off (no auto power off).

Display Dimmer: You can set the front panel display to be bright all the time, dim all the time, or dim during power off.

Note On Recording: It is not possible to record from DVD/Video CD/CD to VHS tape with this deck.

DVD Features

Video D/A Converter: The DVD-V2000 uses a 27MHz/10-bit video Digital-to-Analog Converter, which reduces digital artifacts for a better picture.

Audio D/A Converters: This unit features dual 96khz/24-bit audio D/A converters to ensure greater audio accuracy with every disc, especially recent releases recorded in the ultra high fidelity 96kHz/24 bit format.

MP3 Playback: This unit will play MP3 files recorded onto CD-R and most CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660 or Joliet formats. During MP3 playback, up to 8 music folders can be displayed at a time. You can easily search for a particular folder or file from the menu. Program Play and Random Play are also available during MP3 playback.

Component Video Output: In addition to the two composite video outputs and the S-video output, this unit is equipped with a set of component video outputs. When connected to a television with a component video input, the component video output of this unit will provide picture color and detail that is improved relative to video from composite and S-video outputs. Note: The Component Video and S-Video outputs cannot be used simultaneously. In the DVD Setup menu, you will need to select which output you will use.

Resume Function: When you stop disc play, the player remembers where you stopped, so when you press Play again, it will pick up where you left off. If the disc is removed, or the Stop button is pressed twice, the Resume function is cancelled.

Variable Search: During playback, you can search forward or reverse in up to 6 speeds. When playing back a DVD, the fast search speeds are 2x, 4x, 8x, 16x, 32x and 128x normal speed. When playing back a CD, you can search in either direction in 2x, 4x or 8x normal speed. With a Video CD, the speeds are 4x and 8x normal speed.

Slow Motion Play: When playing a DVD or Video CD, you may move forward through the program being played in one of the following slow-motion speeds: 1/2, 1/4, or 1/8 speed. When playing a DVD, you may move backward through the program being played in one of the following slow-motion speeds: 1/2, 1/4, or 1/8 speed. No sound is output during slow motion play.

Frame Advance: In the pause mode, you can view a DVD or Video CD one frame at a time by pressing the F.Adv/Skip button repeatedly. This can only be done in the forward direction.

Repeat Play: "A-B Repeat" allows you to select any portion of a title, chapter, or track and play that portion repeatedly. When playing a DVD, you can repeat the current title, current chapter, or the entire disc. When playing a Video CD or an audio CD, you can repeat the current track or the entire disc.

Program Play/Random Play: In the menu, you can select whether you want the player to play the chapters/tracks in a specific order (up to a maximum of 20 tracks), or in random order.

Bookmark: The Bookmark function allows you to select parts of a DVD or VCD so that you can quickly find the section at a later time. You can bookmark up to 3 scenes at at time.

Motion Zoom: During playback or in the pause mode of a DVD or VCD, you can zoom in on a particular part of the screen. When the Zoom button is pressed, a square will be displayed on the screen. You can move up or down, left or right to select the part of the screen you want to zoom in on. On a DVD you can zoom in either 2x or 4x normal size. On a VCD, you can zoom in 2x normal size.

Camera Angles: On DVDs recorded with multiple angles, you can select which angle to view a particular scene.

3D Sound: When listening to a DVD in two-channel stereo through the analog outputs, the 3D Sound function uses a Phantom Surround Processor to give you a simulated surround effect. 3D sound is possible only on discs recorded using Dolby Surround or Dolby Digital and does not work when using the digital output.

Screen Fit: During playback of a DVD, the Screen Fit feature gives you the ability to assure the images are configured perfectly for both 16:9 Widescreen TVs or traditional 4:3 sets. Screen Fit eliminates the black bars that may occur when a movie is playing in the Widescreen format. In addition, when Screen Fit is active, you can still zoom in further if desired. 

Digest Play: During DVD playback, the Digest Play function allows you to easily select an individual chapter for playback. When Digest Play is activated, you'll see 9 individual windows representing each of the chapters on the screen. When each window is displayed, the first 3 seconds of the chapter will be played. You can scroll through the displayed chapters or select another 9 chapters to be displayed. Once the desired chapter is located, it can be selected for playback. When playing a CD, Digest Play will play the first 10 seconds of each track.

VCR Features

S-VHS Playback: The VCR can playback high-quality S-VHS recordings. It cannot, however, record in S-VHS.

Auto Channel Memory: This feature will automatically seek and store all active channels in your area.

Channel Add/Delete: Use this feature if Auto Channel Memory missed a channel that you would like to add, or added a channel you wish to remove.

Special Playback Features: While a videotape is playing, you can enjoy a variety of special playback features, including Still, Frame Advance, Cue/Review, Skip, Repeat and Shuttle.

Cue/Review: In the Play mode, you can cue (fast forward) or review (rewind) in 2 speeds: Picture Search advances the tape at 5x normal speed. Jet Search advances the tape at 7x normal speed.

Variable Search System: While playing back a videotape, you can search forward or backward for an index mark (made at the beginning of each recording). When an index mark is found, the VCR plays for about 5 seconds. If you desire to view that program, you can press Play. If not, the VCR will automatically search for the next index mark.

End Search: If you are searching for a blank position on a tape to record a program, you can press the "Down" arrow and the VCR will search for the next blank portion of the tape. If the VCR reaches the end of the tape during End Search, it will eject the tape.

Skip: In play mode, the Skip feature allows you to cue ahead 30 seconds of recorded program. You may press the Skip button up to 4 times to cue ahead 2 minutes.

Repeat: This feature allows you to review the last 5 seconds of tape from the current playback point.

Shuttle: From the play mode, "Shuttle>>" gradually increases the cue speed from Double-speed playback to Picture Search to Jet Search. "Shuttle<<" gradually slows down the tape, then goes into Slow mode, Still mode, Reverse Picture Search, and Reverse Jet Search. 

Go to 0:00:00 Stop: This feature allows you to reset the counter to zero during play or record. When in stop mode, press the "Up" arrow and the tape will advance or rewind to the last point where the counter was set at zero.
