From toddler to teen to adult the Samsung DVD-C500 Upconverting DVD Player has features every member of the family can use and enjoy.

Have you ever seen what a little kid can do to a DVD in a matter of seconds? Give them a few minutes and the disc will look like Tokyo after Godzilla strolled through it. Well, if a DVD is in really bad shape, it's time to buy a new one. But for minor dings and scratches the C500 has this cool feature Samsung calls Defect Disc Recovery Solution. Samsung says the C500 "plays perfectly through scratches, smudges and tilts." (We think 'tilts' refers to warping.) Rolling Actuator Technology handles the tilts.

The C500 is also dustproof. It actually removes dust as the disc spins. The dusting is augmented by using a Viterbi error correction algorithm to lower the error rate of the recording. All this high technology makes your C500 as close to dustproof as any DVD player is likely to get any time soon.

A feature everybody will enjoy is progressive scan with upconversion. It works when you connect the player to your TV set via an HDMI cable (available separately). The resulting picture is not as sharp as Blu-ray. But it's so close many people can't tell the difference.

The next best thing to HDMI is component video output with digital coaxial audio output. Your C500 has both. They too will give you excellent video and audio.

Your C500 can play not only regular DVDs and CDs, but a number of types you can burn yourself.

Another feature couch potatoes everywhere will love is Anynet+. That's Samsung's brand of the HDMI CEC standard. It allows compatible components that are connected by HDMI cables to be controlled by a single remote.

Take another look at that price. That's all you'll pay for all of the amazing features of the Samsung DVD-C500 Upconverting DVD Player. Kind of makes you want to click that Add to Cart button, doesn't it?

See Things Clearly With Progressive Scan Out
Everything's twice as real with Progressive Scan Out. It takes a conventional HDTV, with its outdated interlacing method of delivering data, two passes to display what Full HD 1080p's Progressive Scan Out delivers in one. That means you get a smoother, cleaner, better picture that's full of vivid detail—perfect for viewing fast-paced sports and action flicks you love so much.
Plays Perfectly Through Scratches, Smudges and Tilts
Whether it's a scratch or finger mark interrupting your film, Samsung's Defect Disc Recovery Solution automatically makes all the necessary adjustments to deliver a crystal clear picture so you never have to get off the couch. And our Rolling Actuator Technology makes sure a curved or tilted disc surface won't sabotage your quiet night in either. Just get comfy, press play and let Samsung do the rest.
Dustproof
DVD playback is smooth and uninterrupted thanks to Samsung's dustproof feature. It actually removes dust while the disc is rotating. And with the player's Viterbi detector in action, you're ensured enhanced performance and a dramatically lower error rate.
Advanced 14-Bit Video D/A Converter
Enjoy enhanced dynamic contrast and sharper details. 14-bit video digital-to-analog conversion with high-speed 108 MHz video processing increases the image's resolution so that it's as close to the original DVD source as possible. You'll experience more life-like pictures and amazing color quality.
Multiple Disc And File Playback Formats
Your C500 offers a host of playback formats including DVD, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3, WMA and JPEG.
Anynet+ Means You Have One Remote to Rule Them All
Anynet+ is an AV network system to automatically control Samsung audio-video (AV) devices connected by HDMI cables. There's no need to use different remote controls for different devices. With the Anynet+ feature, all you need is one remote control for a simple and convenient experience.

      It's a solid DVD player for anyone not yet ready to splash out on a Blu-Ray player. The beginning sequence of Star Wars Episode III (a space battle scene) was very clear on a 32" HDTV using the HDMI 'upconvert' feature. Very nice quality.

      But beware, if you're after an XviD / DivX player: this isn't it. The firmware for the DVD-C500 and DVD-C550 may be the same, but only the '550' will play these MPEG4 / .avi files. Whether burned on the 'root' level of a CD or DVD, or placed in a folder, the '500' player here simply will not see the video files ...just as the instruction book warns.

      Although the image quality is excellent, it's a bit loud during playback. I keep it in a cabinet so it's not a big deal, but you might want to avoid if it's out in the open.

          • Kid Dvd Friendly

          Comments about Samsung DVD-C500 Upconverting DVD Player:

          We have a 4 yr old daughter. She loves kids videos. We live near our local library and borrow DVDs from there on a weekly basis. Having read the description of this player on the B&H site I was drawn to the Godzilla analogy. Needless to say, library borrowed DVDs are never perfect. This player is amazing. She has watched dozens of DVDs since I got it and it have never skipped. Everyone of the the discs looked like a cat had been using them to sharpen its claws. Amazing player for an equally amazing price.

            This dvd player claimed to play through scratchs and smudges and it really does. Having a 3 and 4 year olds this happens and this dvd player really saves the day. And buying from here made it all that much better.

                            Other reviewers have said this unit is very noisy, this is not the case with this unit it's rather quiet.

                            Bought this model for my daughter whose super cheap model died. I set this one up for her and noticed it was pretty noisy compared to the Toshibas that I own. I offered to return it and get her a quieter model, but she decided to keep this one because the noise does not bother her and she likes the fact that it is supposed to be able to play damaged or smudged discs better(according to manufacturer).

                              This DVD Player is in our bedroom running on a 27" monitor. It plays the occasional plastic disc when streaming isn't an option. It does the job fine. It is no frills but for the price I can't complain. Except the buttons on the front are impossible to read. I wouldn't rely on it for the big living room set up but for what I use it for, I am happy with it.

                                Although the image quality is excellent, it's a bit loud during playback. I keep it in a cabinet so it's not a big deal, but you might want to avoid if it's out in the open.

                                Comments about Samsung DVD-C500 Upconverting DVD Player:

                                It's a solid DVD player for anyone not yet ready to splash out on a Blu-Ray player. The beginning sequence of Star Wars Episode III (a space battle scene) was very clear on a 32" HDTV using the HDMI 'upconvert' feature. Very nice quality.

                                But beware, if you're after an XviD / DivX player: this isn't it. The firmware for the DVD-C500 and DVD-C550 may be the same, but only the '550' will play these MPEG4 / .avi files. Whether burned on the 'root' level of a CD or DVD, or placed in a folder, the '500' player here simply will not see the video files ...just as the instruction book warns.
